What is salesmanship?

Salesmanship is not a job.

You’re hired to close, not to show up, suck up, or go through the motions. Accept the latter and you’ll be soon shown the door.

Salesmanship is not shameless promotion.

You’re either solving problems or your noise. There’s nothing in between. Be a doctor not a carnival barker.

Salesmanship is not a steady paycheque.

You’ll earn fat commissions this quarter. Next quarter near nothing. Save for rainy days, or you’ll be desperate to close… and it shows.

Salesmanship understood correctly, is the cure for your company’s disease.

The disease is revenue insufficient-titus.

Who better to cure it than YOU.
