How can I learn to sell?

Selling is hard to me (introversion doesn't help). I have no idea how to do it so I have decided to get a part time job in sales (income needed) and complete a course to get better.

I understand online is a better channel but for my early sales I want to go into restaurants and sell to them so I can get a strong customer base and understand them better.

My pitch so far has been to go in and say I am doing research for university project then, shamelessly, plug my product at the end (give them sample of my product).

For those entrepreneurs out there, how did you go about learning sales? Bonus points for face to face sales.

Any courses, books, tips appreciated!
