Customer Categorization

You folks know that I sell stuff on FB and Craigslist, right? I discover all kinds of things about human nature in the process.

The best group to sell to are working class men (obviously white, like 100% of my buyers). It’s all easy, respectful, no nonsense. They know exactly what they want and don’t mess around. I have sold pretty expensive stuff to this kind of customer (the most recent thing was welder gear, for instance), and it’s always been very pleasant.

Men are a lot easier to sell to than women. They make decisions easier and don’t ask bisillions of questions over each $15 item.

The worst group to sell to are pet owners. I’m discontinuing all sales of pet supplies because these folks are nuts. They get pissy after you respond “yes, it’s available” to a query about an item’s availability. What can possibly rile them up in such a response is a mystery. They flake out and get angry out of absolutely nowhere.

  1. There definitely lots of crazy dog owners out there. We adopted a puppy from an animal shelter a few years ago and got a free 8-week puppy training class as a gift from the shelter. The puppy training classes are not cheap if you purchase them and are held as a group training with about a dozen dogs and their families. I don’t think I have met a crazier group of people than the other families at the puppy training. I don’t even know where to begin with describing the various crazy things we saw and heard during those classes. Since then we’ve met plenty of other dog owners on walks and at the dog park. I’d say at least 50% of dog owners are totally nuts.

    1. To sell. It’s quite expensive. I’ve sold the weirdest things, including an RV generator that weighed more than me and cost $800. I once made $1,500 in one day on my sales hustle.
