Throughout the many sales and collaborations we have attended, we have learned many numerous strategies from a variety of people. What we have found to be quite effective is something you should all take note of: LURKING
Take for example, Exhibit A:

And this lurker will follow that cart wherever it goes until the lurkee finally gives in...
Or perhaps you prefer the sweet and smiley method of lurking that we too learned at the Jason Wu x Target launch. These lurkers played the 'buddy' card, by keeping in close quarters of the lurkee, acting as if they were on the same team. Smart move, we must say, because it totally won us over. Giggle and keep on smiling acknowledging just how ridiculous you are, and the lurkee will surely throw you a bone or two. See the tutorial below:
