The Art of Sales
So we are all here on WA because we see a great opportunity to make a living, earn an income, live a lifestyle, etc in a way that is different than our parents and the generation that came before us. We realize that the office-enclosed, 9-5, salary-based type of jobs are not the desired choice for making a living like the last century. It is a different economy and it is driven by the activity on the internet.
So how do we make a go of it? What are the secrets to earning that income online? Well we are all learning several different tips and lessons on how to be successful here at WA. In the past, sales was a great way of making a really good income through commission sales. Some were successful through great aptitude for selling, call them the naturals if you will. Some achieved great selling skills through training. Some reached success through a combination of both.
So my question here is...what were the most important traits of a successful sales person from days gone by? What skills or natural abilities did one have to possess to make it in sales? While thinking about that...how do those skills translate to today's online world? Are those skills and talents of the past still relevant in the sales funnel of today?
I would love to hear some feedback on this because I have my own views that I will share in the near future. But I would like to hear from each of you. Thanks in advance for sharing!
