Making money from sales, at early age: It is fun, but education is the priority now

He has been into sales, right from childhood, where he engaged in door to door sales practices, made real emotional and human connections with the people, while making money for himself; as every salesman would do. Great!

If there is one thing any salesman would wish for, it would be to continue in a sales adventure at a young age, since it makes some bucks for him to at least afford some sweets. It is very egotistically beneficial, but what is the guarantee to survive and scale in the ever changing and competitive market without innovation-oriented education?

The salesman thought it wise to equip himself with education, hence earning him a degree in Business Administration (Finance) at the prestigious, “Aditya Degree College Kakinada, India”.

  • If you aspire to educate the next generation on sales and the likes, first get it done by yourself.

If a client says No, what do you do: No means, Not Over, yet

Sales is interesting, but every normal human being would dislike overtimes, too much work, and a No from the client; but that does not stop avid salesman from converting the No into, Not Over, yet.. hence ensures to grab the contact details of the potential client, for future communication and assured conversion into a loyal, long-term partner.

Titled; The 5 Strategies To Close Sales Like a Pro published on Tekedia.com on Tuesday, July 28, 2020.

Excerpt reads: “The most successful salesperson deals with the market as an early morning routine (grab it while it is still fresh). They do not give in to chances, rather the market place is duly occupied by their strategic creativity.

What do I mean by this:

The salesperson who enters the market with his product, and sees that there are many similar or even leading brands, then settles down to examine the un-common questions from the on-passing customers, tends to learn their un-noticed needs. When he does this, he then tries to provide the simplest answers that are direct so that the customers do not spend lengthy time to flow with their services, hence a life-long loyal customer. It’s that simple”.

Salesman is a Business Leader, so must be EMOTIONALLY AVAILABLE for the customers:

A salesman, as a businessman who aims to be called a leader, must be readily prepared to lead his team to success no matter the situation of the market. He must be ready to lead small to large number of groups, professionals and business heads as the call-to-action personnel, and take the necessary steps to learn the skills of sales, so he can add one or two things into the team up-skilling, to ensure the team meets and surpass the business demands of the day. 

That also goes in hand with being emotionally available for the customer, and the team, and serving as the friendly shoulder to hear their needs and support them how he can; everybody wants to spend their money and work as an employee where they are valued. 

Quote: When the team is in good condition, they will serve the customers right and make money in return. by the Team at FoodMoby.com.

Evaluating Salesman Success at FoodMoby.com

Activities Management, Not Time Management; Make the schedule now, work on it when it should be, and Time will be well managed. by Mpilo Mbali DRC & Chidiebere Moses Ogbodo NG.

If there is one way to evaluate the success of a salesman with the company, then it has more to do with drafting personal strategies in-line with the mission and vision of the organization in order to achieve the organization goal, while having the short and long-term targets in mind.

  • A sales manager who aims to close big bulk and bucks deals, must be ready to go straight to the point with the customers. Do not waste the customers’ time.
  • Wrap up discussions with actionable ideas to achieve them, and actually take those actions towards the goal. 
  • He must respond to customers queries as though he knows them before time, so as to build confidence, in depth, within the shortest span of time. 
  • He must be having an automated version of himself that is making friends, developing trust and generating leads for him, while his real organic person is out there with clients solving their major human-oriented problems with effective solutions; being emotionally available.
