''Sales'' let's be honest, the term can have a negative feel to it. Many avoid diving into sales because they feel it can be a very cut-throat sport.
Of course, it isn't for everyone and we totally understand this. However, when you really think about it, there is a little sales in everything we do:
- In work when you are trying to get your boss or your fellow colleagues to ''buy-in'' to an idea you have - you are selling.
- In Marketing, when you are looking for people to follow, like and engage with your brand you are selling your story
- In Customer Service, when you are helping customers with an issue, a query or a complaint with the service/product you offer and you help and guide them with a solution - you could be recommending another product/service that better fits their needs - you are selling.
Now, seeing this doesn't it make ''Sales'' sound a lot less scary?
