When your sales team feels the pressure of hitting their quota or closing their current deal, they may forget why they chose the sales profession in the first place – it’s fun! Sometimes, they may need to reflect on this, and there is no better way than good sales jokes.
Sometimes we all need reminders that our jobs are fun and that this is just a bad day or a bad week. When I feel stressed out, I gather myself and remember some good advice I received: “Nobody dies in sales”. We are not heart surgeons or the armed forces where we have people’s lives at stake. Salespeople thrive on experimenting and having fun. This is not to say that sales jobs are always fun parties. It’s also not to say that high-pressure jobs aren’t fun and don’t have their rewards. We appreciate all of the people in high-pressure jobs from front line workers to the armed forces.
In the business world, it can be easy to take yourself too seriously and forget to inject some humour and fun into your day job with some jokes. This is why we gathered some of the best sales jokes to bring some light to your day!

8. This Is Our USP
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.”

Don’t forget, enjoy your job – It’s a good one!
