What is the difference between selling and marketing? Understanding this term is sometimes confused. Moreover, companies generally prefer to use rather than marketing executive salesman for salespeople.


This is my first serial article about 'selling like a pro', hope you enjoy this article.

On an average, a person encounters about three salespeople in a day. Your phone will ring one sunny morning; a jovial salesperson is on the other end of the line selling you cruise vacation tickets. As you condition yourself for a good relaxing nap, somebody begins knocking on your door and when you open it, an insurance salesman is right at your face smiling his heart out. You try to sort out your mails before going to bed and you noticed that half of them are promotional newsletters.

You might be tired of salespeople yourself. In fact, you might have hated the mere sight of one. But do you know that it is one of the most rewarding jobs around? Well, not unless you can become the next President of the United States; but then, I could be wrong.

Salespeople are the very individuals who move the company. Their job is to market the products and make the company flourish in the process. If a salesperson is not able to do his job well, then the rest of the company will fall. The CEO, down to the rank-and-file employees, will soon be out of their jobs.

Do you see now how powerful salespeople can be? And because of this reason alone, they are very indispensable in any company.

For a salesperson, every sale merits a commission. And for their every good performance, income spiffs and special bonuses, who then would not want to be a salesperson and become rich and successful?

Thanks for reading.
On next article i’ll write about ,”Everybody Can Become Successful in The Field of Sales“.
