What does 'prepared bid' refer to in the context? 8. What does 'prepared bid' refer to in the context? “You have a product so irresistible that selling it is simply a question of placing it in front of the slavering prospect. No need for the artfully prepared bid, the tickets to the game, the winning smile. The salesman floats his pitch and the hungry buyer slams it over the bleachers for a home run. Everyone makes money and we all go home.”

When a salesman tries to sell someone something, the salesman may have to offer a bid - the price for what they are selling. With expensive items or complex projects, such as construction, the bid must be very carefully prepared so that the salesman's company can make a profit, but the price is low enough for the buyer to accept. In this case, the text refers to a product that is so desirable that the salesman would not have to prepare such a bid - he/she could ask just about any price and it would be accepted.
