    Re: Qualities of a good sales person

    We like to hire people with proven sales records. It is so easy to hire new people but we sell consulting services and we have a dedicated person who drums up business. It is helpful to have someone who has connections in the industry we focus on (financial). The person should be likable and have solid relationship management skills.

      Most people go for the James Bond type of sales person we go for Columbo. Someone who constantly questions and investigates to better understand the clients so they can provide a better solution.

          Companies spend hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars training their sales people "how to sell?". but the more important question is, in fact a thousand times more important, no, a million times more important, no, a billion times more important is "WHY DO THEY BUY?"
          You see, if you figured this out, then you'd have no problems selling.

              A good sales person should have a good and positive attitude. Sales is a tough business and if you don't have the right attitude it wont work. Sales people should also be outgoing and know how to interact with people. This means knowing when to listen to a customer to see what their needs and wants are. In addition a salesperson should know how to be persistent, as it takes quite a few people until you are able to make a sale.

                  I think it is important for a good sales person to have a thick skin and be quite resilient. When a deal falls over you need them to be able to get onto the next deal quickly.

                      Someone who actually listens to what you are looking for, and doesn't go off on a wild tangent about what they think is best. Listening is the key. And taking a personal interest, so to say, in the customers. Not pushing them into something, but understanding and making good suggestions. Also, knowing what you’re talking about helps. Instead of being clueless about everything, and saying, "Well, 'I think' it's ok or blah blah blah whatever...." Make it seem like you know your stuff. And being polite, curious, and respectful is very important, as well as being friendly....i.e. a warm smile and hello, how are you today!!
