I’m kind of a Terence Hill and Bud Spencer fan. They act in clueless stories concentrating on fighting with as many people as possible… yet there’s something in their movies that makes you want to watch them over and over.
Anyway, in their movie I’m for the hippopotamus there are scenes of haggling. In these scenes, these guys are always countering to money offers by saying “double at least”. The price should be at bigger – double at least.
While I doubt it’s efficient on every situation, I think this tip is worth remembering. If you are thinking of doing a $100 deal or $100,000 deal, you can always try to think bigger – “double at least” bigger. The next time you are about to make a deal, why not asking to double your price?
Who knows, it just might even work.
