I'd like to hear a little how these pros operate, if you don't mind sparing the time. It sounds quite fascinating.

Based on my many years on both sides the short answer is they tell buyers what they want to hear (hit the hot buttons regardless of whether the product or service can deliver) and they outright lie. (Really). Not that there aren't honorable good salesmen (there are) but many do the same thing that guys do to pick up women in bars.
