If you are going to be in sales, then you really need to be somebody that believes in your product and have the training necessary to attract and keep customers. Most customers will tell you that sales is more than just the product. It is also about the relationship with the salesperson and the company. The overall experience with the person selling the product or service and the perceived relationship with the company go a long way to driving repeat business. Sales training is sales training around the world. Verkooptraining is sales training in another language. I say that to point out the global nature of opportunity to be in sales all over the world.
The global market has opened up a customer base that is not limited by geography. Well, in most instances it isn’t. There still are some places you don’t want to be selling anything even if you could. Anyway, the fact remains that it should encourage you if you have anything to sell or want to sell the products or services of another. You start with something you believe in. Don’t ever try to fool yourself into pushing a product or service you do not believe in. If you are a decent person, you will just burn yourself out with halfhearted sales pitches only to find your sales volume low and being worn out at the end of the day.
Take being a car salesperson for example. If you get a job pushing a brand of cars you never liked, then you are not going to be enthusiastic. If you are selling a brand you prefer and trust to use for your own car, then you can approach sales enthusiastically from first-hand experience and knowledge. If you really do believe in your product, you could be the person to sell sand to someone living in the desert or ice to an Eskimo!
