Therefore, experienced and smart sales professionals are always welcomed and respected in any team as they are often capable of single-handedly turning a business around.
Unlike any other domain, in sales, it’s your confidence and faith in what you are selling that makes all the difference. Showcasing confidence in front of clients leads them to believe you know and understand their needs convincing them to trust your pitch and close the transaction. And developing confidence and convincing skills takes time.
Having a sense of confidence and the ability to convince without a personal meeting has become all the more important post-COVID.
