Your staff are always competing – against each other and against themselves. Try to lighten up the mood with sales jokes.

How many sales jokes do you hear during an average workday? Chances are, the answer to that question is very little to none. The workplace is usually void of heavy humor, and when some does come out, it’s usually a customer who’s telling the joke.

Don’t be afraid to be the person sharing the humor. Sales jokes help build a connection with prospects. Tell a joke and your lead will lighten up a little. You’ll begin to build a relationship with your prospective customer, and you’ll put them at ease. The more comfortable your customer feels with you, the more likely you’ll be able to close the sale.

Sales jokes also help your sales staff break the tension. If competition is high, team-building takes a back seat. Sprinkle in a few sales jokes here and there so your employees understand that the sales contest is in good spirits, and sometimes all salespeople need to take a moment to relax. Everything can’t be sell, sell, sell all the time.

If you’re in charge of your office newsletter, or you’re organizing your thoughts for the next team meeting, these ten sales jokes will give you all the inspiration you need to lead your sales teams to success.

Question: How many salespeople does it take to change a lightbulb?

Answer No. 1: None. You don’t need a new lightbulb; you need to upgrade your socket to the newest version.

Answer No. 2: Just one, but it’ll take technical support weeks to sort out the mess left behind.

Answer No. 3: Four. One to change the bulb and three to pull the chair out from under him.

A salesman was demonstrating unbreakable combs in a department store. He was impressing the people who stopped by to look by putting the comb through all sorts of torture and stress.

Finally, to impress even the skeptics in the crowd, he bent the comb completely in half, and it snapped with a loud crack. Without missing a beat, he bravely held up both halves of the unbreakable comb for everyone to see and said, “And this, ladies and gentlemen, is what an unbreakable comb looks like on the inside.”
