Contest Chooses World's Greatest Salesperson

An online businessman from Edmonton, Canada, has been named the world's greatest salesperson in a competition sponsored by advertising agency OgilvyOne.

Todd Herman defeated two other finalists in Cannes, France on Monday by giving a sales pitch for a simple telephone. An estimated 230 contestants had previously been challenged to upload a video of a sales pitch for a red brick. Herman's pitch can be seen below. The Edmonton Journal reports his strategy is to focus on one simple message and believe in the product.
