Afraid To Sell? 3 Reasons You Shouldn’t Be

By October 18, 2017 No Comments

Our society perpetuates a certain stereotype of people in sales, doesn’t it? You know, the sleazy guy at the car dealership trying to sell you a lemon. Or that pushy woman who won’t stop following you around the department store trying to get you to sample the latest makeup product. Or worst of all, those people who call you up trying to get you to sign up for some promo deal on something you don’t understand or care about. Yeah, yeah, I get it. Even just saying the word “sales’ can make people run for the hills, and with good reason. No one likes aggressive salespeople, and no one wants to be an annoying salesperson themselves.

The truth is, though, that there is a lot more to the field of sales than this stereotype. I’ve worked in sales for a long time, and I’ve pretty much seen it all. I understand the hesitation that people have to get involved, and yet I hope you’ll hear me out when I say that the sales process doesn’t have to be this awful, unbearable experience that you want to avoid. Here are 3 reasons you shouldn’t be afraid to sell:

Everyone’s A Buyer

We live in a culture in which everyone is a consumer. No matter how independent or frugal someone is, no matter if they aren’t a big spender, and even if they aren’t up on all the latest trends and products, in 2017, everyone buys something. Maybe it’s not luxury cars or fancy vacations or expensive toys or nice clothing, but everyone buys food, right? Most people have an automobile of some kind (even if it’s just a beater). You can’t go into public without wearing something, so everyone buys clothes to some degree. Buying is a natural part of our society, and common sense tells us that in order for someone to buy, someone has to be selling. Since we all need people in sales, there’s no need to look down on this profession. Selling is unavoidable, so why not consider being part of it? Also, some people talk about the volatility of the field (some months are good months, some months not so good), but overall, sales is here to stay.

To Sell Is To Share

You’ve heard this one, haven’t you? It’s really true, though. If you’re selling a quality product or service, you’re giving someone a chance to improve his/ her life. Sound a little cheesy? Maybe, but that doesn’t mean it’s not true! The health products we market have gone through a lot of research & development and testing to make sure they are up to snub. If you know of something that could help someone be healthier, fitter, or overall more happy, why would you not want to share that information? Yes, there are unfortunately people in sales who are just looking to increase their bottom line, but that’s not what we’re about at Build Plan B. We truly believe that selling is sharing.

If You Don’t, Someone Else Will

Modern day marketing trends tell us that consumers are buying online and are looking for health products like never before. From a business standpoint, there is a lot of money to be made in this part of the market. There’s no reason that you can’t be involved in benefitting from these trends. Seriously, if someone doesn’t buy from you, they will buy from someone else. In order to help you reach financial stability, why not try your hand in selling?
