Sales Training: The fundamentals of successful selling
Equipping you with the fundamentals to successful selling
Welcome to the fundamentals of successful selling.
We are all exposed to sales, everyday of our lives. Even when you’re convincing your partner that you should go on a holiday – you’re also selling the idea to them. In the USA and many parts of the world, good sales managers now earn more than doctors and lawyers, so a career in sales is a serious opportunity.
But sales is just the final step in the marketing process and smart sales people will adhere to the rules of marketing and real world economics. This means that Money is not “unlimited” and we must learn to target the right people with the right product before we learn how to sell it in a highly efficient and profitable way. Because some people live on credit cards, many Americans and Europeans belief the illusion that the supply of money is “unlimited” and they think we can sell anything to anyone. Now that sounds nice but the fact is that in our world, wealth disparity is on the rise, so the wealthy segment is growing, where rich people have more money than ever and at the same time, the poor segment is also growing because the middle class is shrinking.
So if you want to believe that you can sell ice to an Eskimo, this course is not for you. If on the other hand you want to learn professional sales fundamentals and perform well in the real world, you’re going to love this course.

Sales is the final step within the marketing process and every business is run on sales. You may have known that in the USA, good sales managers earn more than doctors and lawyers. How else will the business get new clients or grow? Sales is the engine that drives every successful and thriving business. Whether your business is small or large, you need sales. Think of cars, TVs, food, fashion, mobile devices, and so on. These all have come into your life in one way or other through effective sales. You had a need. You sought help to meet that need which led you to a friendly salesman. By asking relevant questions and taking time to understand your needs and preferences, they pointed you towards your answer. The result? You bought a product or service that enriched and improved your life.
Today, sales is a profession that almost anyone can make a career in; however, successful salespeople to a certain extent are a personality and while anyone can get a job in sales, dedication and hard work are key to success.
The beauty of the sales industry is that it gives people a good starting point. It teaches life skills, people skills, and enhances charisma. Sales has an incredible way of building confidence and stretching you beyond yourself making it a versatile job for both extroverts and introverts. Some of the most successful people we know today worked as salespeople while reaching for their dreams. Celebrities who worked as sales reps before making it famous in the Hollywood industry include the following:
George Clooney who worked as a door to door insurance salesman

Johnny Depp was a telemarketer who sold ballpoint pens to customers
