At some point in everyone’s career they will be involved in a sales role. For Synergy Client Solutions sales are the lifeblood of what we do and we’re pretty good at spotting the personalities of a great salesperson, but they might not be what you think they are…
There are so many different veins of sales from retail to business to business. Pitching clients or investors is another form of sales too, the list is endless. The skills however, are the same. If you ask a good salesperson why they think they are so successful most won’t be able to answer, for some it will come very naturally. Basic traits are useful for success, after that all the skills can be taught and learnt.
Firstly curiosity is key. Without a hunger for knowledge and information you’re going to find it hard to learn about new services or products. Showing an interest in customers is important to build a relationship with them.
Contrary to the stereotype of salespeople being pushy the best are actually very modest. They focus instead on putting the customer first and finding out what their needs are, that’s the way to ensure a high level of customer service and a quality sale.
Most great salespeople don’t suffer from self-consciousness, they’re comfortable to put themselves out there and have fun. They push the boundaries to achieve their goals and a very comfortable being in various situations.
The very best salespeople are incredibly committed and competitive. At Synergy Client Solutions we obviously have targets that we strive to meet but most great salespeople don’t need targets set by other people. They work to their own personal targets for a sense of achievement. They tend to be people who can see a bigger picture and aren’t discouraged by a single bad day. Most have a personal reason for success whether it is their family or wanting a good lifestyle. They keep those goals in mind and use that as motivation.
At Synergy Client Solutions we work with some of the best salespeople in the country, these skills are the ones that we find most frequently amongst our associates. They’re incredibly coachable and self-motivated which make them a great bunch to work with. We look out for these traits in people because we know that they are going to help us reach and surpass our clients’ goals.
