Take what you might think about selling and stick in the trash. Weather stations and instrument sales is not like door-to-door sales, care sales, or insurance sales. So, if you are an aggressive, “motivated,” professional sales person that likes to close “deals,” you’re probably not a fit; go back to peddling security systems.
Technical, B2B sales it is about curiosity, exploration, investigation, learning, networking, and building rapport with leads and customers. In fact, it might share more in common with investigative journalism than anything else. You need to be comfortable initiating phone conversations, writing emails, reading technical documents, and humble enough to learn from leads and co-workers.
You’ll need to respect your boundaries of ignorance and humble enough to involve other staff members before you make fools of all of us. Our customers are specialists in their work and we need to let them teach us before we know if we have a suitable solution.
Since you are a team member and multiple skills will participate in evaluating sales opportunities, there is no commission. You’ll also will be expected to wear a few hats and explore your skills, contributing wherever there is a need.
So, if you like a diverse job, are friendly, and like to learn new stuff, we’d love to show you around and see what you think. No sales experience required.
