When they hear the word “salesperson,” a lot of people’s eyes widen in horror. And often this stigma is well-founded—their experiences of being nearly accosted by overly smiley and well-dressed product pushers in shops, or even getting trapped by a seller in a phone call, has provided them with a bad perception of sales overall.
In product fulfillment, the area of sales is, for better or worse, a key part of your job. You have to sell your products in order to generate success for yourself. But while the other sales professionals are relentlessly chasing or hounding prospective leads, you are in a better position to do sales in a more civilized manner that still allows you to create success for yourself.
