I have little to no experience in sales; I'm a writer with a successful podcast. I am trying to sell ads on it. One of my customers/advertisers has decided to stop advertising with us after just 2 mos. How do I recover and keep the client? [more inside]

Is this false advertising or just bad sales technique? Salespeople using "Made in USA" to boost sales... of foreign-made items. [more inside]

A bigshot sales guy is coming by this afternoon, trying to get my organization to buy web ads on a regional newspaper site. What should I ask him?

I am an online publisher (have my own site) and want advertisers to advertise. I am pitching to an ad agency who has these accounts.
I want to look at a few pitch presentation decks. Any place online where there might be sales presentation to agency powerpoint decks?

Marketing vs. Sales vs. advertising vs. PR -- help me find a great illustration that breaks down the difference between mktg sales PR etc. by showing different perspectives of a guy saying he's a good lover (advertising) or women describing the guy as a good lover (PR)... it was featured in DIgg or Lifehacker or boingboing a while back but I can't find it!

We need to do some online advertising and PR, on a just-above-shoestring budget, directed at people responsible for selling new information technology products. The minimum for a text ad from publishers like Ziff-Davis and CMP's TechWeb seems to be well over $2,000 per insertion. We'd like to spend less than that, so maybe we're looking for more obscure publications.
