Five Qualities to Become a Successful Salesman

Won’t you be surprised if you hear that after 5 years many people will not remain in the sales business? Well, it’s true. Some major changes in the field of sales have already triggered a rapid weeding of the sales force of our country. To be a successful salesman, you cannot be only a financial planner or insurance agent; you have to be very professional too. You should respect your job. Ben Feldman said that most of the people buy things because of trusting the salesman rather than the product.  This statement proves the prominent role which a good salesman plays in the mind of a customer.

To establish your career in this field, you have to possess some qualities. Just go through the article to know the qualities of an excellent salesman.

What are the qualities a salesman should have?

  • You should have interest in selling the insurance. If you are really interested, it means you can be a successful insurance seller. You should be enthusiastic, laborious and should know how to use various techniques to convince the customer. Try to make the utmost efforts by using all the available means to reach the top, but never cheat the customer.
  • Incorporate the right attitude in yourself. Be confident, friendly and polite. There are many people who really embrace their occupations. Expert seller of equipment always have positive attitude which helps them to achieve their aim. It will indeed help you to visualise your dreams.
  • Energy is another important factor for the making of a good quality salesman. They work day and night to meet their aims. Without energy, you are like the car which you can’t use for travelling. They work for long hours because they love to do it. If you reduce the equipment selling profession to “just a job”, you are surely going to fail in the long run. Though this business involves a massive rejection, you shouldn’t get upset with that and try to sharpen your skill in selling business.
  • No one born as a perfect salesman, the method or the practice makes him better. You should have a selling strategy in which you should work upon the selling process without leaving a single thing. Practice new techniques like giving them attractive offers, telling past performances of the company, building good rapport with the customer and many more.
  • Experience is another way to excellence. You should form the habit of doing the necessary things. Try making at least 40 cold calls per day. This calling experience will definitely teach you to have patience and polite even when the customer is shouting on you.

Selling of the equipment is the biggest and the most difficult thing in the world. Today, the hard-old concept of salesmanship has been replaces by sales professionalism. Set the goals, give fine service, build strong relation with the customers and develop new techniques of selling to excel in this sphere of salesmanship. The world would definitely be better off with more sales agents mainly those who feel proud to address themselves as sales personnel.

A Good Salesman is a Good Sales Manager

A Good Salesman is a Good Sales Manager……(of TIME)

What I mean is a good salesman has to be a good sales manager of time.  Sales people procrastinate like anybody else in the world.  Put off stuff for later when it comes to be more proactive and productive.  But a salesman that is good at time is a selling machine.  Be number one to have to stay organize….and I mean ORGANIZE.  Excuse me….be freaking organize to make a lot of money…get @#!* done.   By being organize you need to set goals everyday in your notepad, Smart phone or computer. Stick to it to much more money..for you and your company.

 

Content Marketing as a Salesperson

One of the best methods to drive traffic to a website is Content…by writing articles or blog posts on your website. Fresh original content keeps your website up to date with the search engines. But you ask me….what kind of content…Ask question like a frequent asked question section…for example, What is the difference between a Cat Dozer vs. John Deere Dozer. Maybe some of your customers might want to know….Answer the questions in blog posts on your website. It should work for your advantage.

Another way to put content on the Internet is to guest post on other relevant blogs with a link back to your blog. Again make sure it is a relevant respond to their article so it will not get deleted. This should drive more traffic to you and your blog. Try it and get back to me.

Sales Jobs is like School

Sales Jobs is like School

What I mean by that is you are taught by a teacher at school and you should learn from a sales mentor (or the best salesman in the company)..the right ways how to sells your products.  We all know their are bad teachers in the world as we know there are bad salesman.  We need to take the time and learn from the best.  By watching his/her habits on how they handle clients or problems.  Remember learn from the best.  If you can not find a good mentor…there are meet up groups and network events that can help you.  Remember always keep learning!!!!!  Make your Sales Job fun!!!!!

Checking on your Products

Checking on your Products

What I mean about that is always know what your products are doing. Either going to an App store on iTunes or a job-site where your heavy equipment is….always check on progress. By doing this you can tweet it or fix it. Stay ahead of completion by knowing everything about your products. A person that knows about their products is an awesome salesman. Product knowledge is a great sales tool. So start studying….

I remember when I started my different sales careers, I didn’t know anything about each. Baseball, football, cell phones to heavy equipment….learn the scope of what you are selling by learning product knowledge.

Thanks

Having Fun at Your Sales Job

Having Fun at Your Sales Job

Making your day go by fast is having fun with your job.  Just like when you are tele marketing on the phone….when speaking to the prospects…Smile and Laugh it goes far on the phone for success in Sales.  Make Humor a must at your job…with clean great practical jokes.

Also to have fun with telemarketing is standing up and walking around in your place of business.  If you sit down always..you may sound a little down or sluggish…Get up and laugh and talk on the phone with customers and prospects.  You will see you have more success standing rather than sitting.  Make it fun!!!!!

Have contests with other sales reps…whoever sets the most appointments..get a gift card to their favorite restaurant or even a Gift Card from iTunes (of course they have to have an Apple product).  Again Make it Fun.

Have cold calling blitz…get a team of two salesman and go door knocking.  Again same concept as above with the gift cards.  Set appointments and get gift cards.  Make fun!!!
