- Everyone is a salesperson:
Relying on only the sales department to bring all the sales will not work in these times. No matter if you work in a sales department or finance department. Everyone is a salesperson. To increase sales is not a motto of just the sales department. To increase sales is a motto of every company and alone the sales department cannot effectively increase sales. So every employee has to sell the company and product where ever possible.
- Know your product:
It is very important to understand your product inside out before selling. Without understanding the product you cannot convince someone to buy it. Ask yourself, what benefit this product will provide my customer and then build on it. Customers see the enthusiasm of the salesperson and that enthusiasm only comes when you understand and own the product fully.
- Know your market:
Opening a meat shop in an area where only vegans live will most likely result in the closure of your shop. It is of utmost importance to know where and who to sell your product to. Do not waste time on people which are unlikely to buy your product instead focus on customers which are more likely to purchase. Every customer should be reached, no doubt, however prioritizing the ones that are more likely to buy is an effective strategy.
