Creating Your Sales Force That Never Stop Selling Your Product Or Service!

Sales Vs Account Manager

There is a BIG difference!

Do you know it?

A Salesperson is somebody who can make Cold-Calls (Action Calls as we say at Make Your Mark) and can actively get out there, establish and build relationships and sell. When you are interviewing for a top notch salesperson you should be asking them if they love Action Calling and getting out and meeting people. Many times we hire a salesperson to look after existing accounts that we have in our businesses and wonder why they are not going out and Action Calling? It’s because they are  account managers or executives that only like to look after established accounts or connections – they do not like starting relationships… it’s often just not their thing and that’s okay!

Great salespeople are like hunters looking for the next opportunity and will jump on the internet and look for places where their ideal prospects hangout and go out without any fear to meet them, build relationships and sell their products.

You have to decide when you hire somebody for a sales role if you are hiring an account manager to look after your existing accounts or a salesperson who knows what it takes to establish new accounts. Both are very important to business, yet it fascinates me how many business owners hire what they believe to be a top notch salesperson and they really are only  a glorified account manager.

One can definitely support the other, just make sure you are very clear about the position and role that you are hiring for.

Master Your Life

The richest persons are those who give most in service to others.

Financial wealth is only one measure of success. The truly happy and successful individual is the man or woman who is healthy, financially secure, challenged in his or her career, and is making a difference in the lives of others. It isn’t always easy to render service to others. The world is a cynical and dangerous place where others are likely to mistrust your motives. They can be convinced only by consistent, sustained, outstanding service that is enthusiastically and cheerfully offered. In time, even the most cynical individual will come to accept your willingness to go the extra mile if you are sincere in your offers of assistance and in the service you provide.

The world pins no medals on you because of what you know, but it may crown you with glory and riches for what you do.
Knowledge is an important component of success in any field. To accomplish anything worthwhile often requires years of study. But knowledge alone is not power; it becomes powerful only when it is applied through positive action. Study after study of successful people reveals that they have a bias for action. They gather the appropriate facts, relate them to their knowledge about the subject, develop an implementation plan, and then get into action. When in doubt, it’s far better to act too soon rather than too late.
