    I agree a good marketing person needs to be able to drag the horse to the trough and the good sales person needs to get the horse to drink even if they do not want to

    The salesperson is central to the success of many organisations, yet job turnover in this role is reported as being excessive. Recruitment of these key individuals must be given a high priority, and practice should be as effective as is practical. This research examines the extent to which the job advertisement may be a contributory factor to this problem, by examining what recruiters say that they look for in today's salesperson and evaluating the potential effectiveness of advertisements placed in the printed media in the United Kingdom. Results indicate that advertised sales jobs tend to be for unqualified,relatively inexperienced, individuals, and who are relatively poorly paid.

    * Goal Oriented - The driving force behind every Company is increased sales and high profits. Most Companies draw out expected sales targets for every year. The onus lies on the sales team to not only meet these targets but go beyond them. Every sales person must be goal oriented and should work towards matching these sales figures.

    * Confident - A sales person should be confident about the product he is selling as well as his own ability to successfully close a sale. Especially in the case of door to door selling, the sales person should be able to interact well with the prospective buyer, gain their trust, arouse an interest and eventually convince them to try a new product. Sales persons should be willing to handle all kinds of tense situations.

    * Patient & Courteous - Convincing a prospective customer to buy a product is not an easy task. Selling is an art and requires patience. A sales person should be able to guide a customer through the entire process which begins with a prospective buyer's indifferent attitude towards a brand and ends with them placing an order. The sales person should be courteous and pleasant while taking a buyer through these stages.

    * Team Player - A good sales executive must be a good team player as well. An ability to interact and devise good sales plans should come naturally to him.
    * Complete Product Knowledge - Every sales executive should be trained well. He should have complete product knowledge including benefits, uses and applications of each product. A good background knowledge will help him to answer all types of questions raised by a prospective buyer.

    Very well said. Of course, the person needs to be goal oriented and technically sound to have complete knowledge about the product he is marketing or selling. He needs to be cool minded and patient enough to see the results coming out.
