“Every sale has five basic obstacles: no need, no money, no hurry, no desire, no trust”

American author and business speaker Zig Ziglar (1926-2012) wrote in Zig Ziglar’s Secrets of Closing the Sale (1984):

“There are five basic reasons people will not buy from you. These are: no need, no money, no hurry, no desire, and no trust.”

Ziglar’s quote is usually written as:

“Every sale has five basic obstacles: no need, no money, no hurry, no desire, and no trust.”

People do not buy for only five reasons: No need, No money, No hurry, No desire, No trust. You may have the best presentation and handled the first four objections but, if people do not trust you they will not buy from you.”

March 1993, Direct Marketing (Garden City, NY), “A Funny thing happened on the way to the mailbox 30 years ago” by Murray Raphel, pg. 31:
(Editor’s Note: This year marks the 30th anniversary of “Ideas For Retailers. “ In that time, columnist Murray Raphel has written 360 columns, more than 50,000 words, converted many of the columns into hooks and continues to travel more than 200,000 miles u year around the world preaching his gospel: “Dollar for dollar, nothing returns as much to your business as direct mail. “ This is the third and final part of his thoughts, ideas and observations through the years. This month: 1984 to 1993.)
