On an average, a person encounters about three salespersons 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 in your face smiling his heart out. You try to sort out your mail before going to bed and you notice that half of them are promotional materials.
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 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 alone, they are quite indispensable in any organization.
For a salesperson, every sale merits a commission. Who then would not want to be a salesperson and become rich and successful? Do you now want to be involved in sales? If you still don't feel up for it, consider this. It is in selling where money really lies. You do not even have to invest too much, nor do you need any capital up front. All you need are the right skills and the correct attitude for the job. That is exactly what this book is going to give you. After you've gone through this book, you will become a top-notch salesperson - a salesperson who can sell anything and everything under the sun, from a shiny new car to a multi-colored checkered coat and tie collection.
