If someone was to ask me what are the attributes a good sales person needs to have to work in the industry, I would tell them they need a positive attitude, a friendly manner, an interest in others, combined with heaps of tenacity and a thick skin.
Sales can be a tough game as you are often rejected. Yet, it’s tremendously satisfying. Sales people tell me the sense of satisfaction they experience each time they close a sale is similar to the feeling when you reach the top of a summit.In that one instant you can forget the graft it took to get up the mountain.
And knowing what you are selling can help to satisfy a need or perhaps resolve an issue for a company or individual is the icing on the cake too.
Staying positive, focused and determined is ultimately the goal of a good salesperson. But, we will be rejected. So, what can help us deal with sales rejection on a daily basis?
