What is Sales?

The lifeblood of business and the driving force of growth, sales are the direct result of influence alchemised into profits. An intricate and exhilarating process, sales is the art of persuasion in action, where various strategies, techniques and interpersonal skills are used to build relationships.

In sales, buyers and sellers come together in a dynamic exchange. Here, needs, wants, aspirations and desires are empathised with and solutions are presented through the effective communication of features, benefits and value propositions of a product, service or offer. During the sales process, professionals need to demonstrate laser-focused product or service knowledge, as well as high-level insight into consumer needs to be able to overcome objections and close deals.

To John, ‘sales’ is more than a transaction:

In a world where competition is high and options are in abundance, organisations must refine and perfect their sales processes so that their offerings are the only option in the eyes of their consumers. Mastering the art of sales will see an organisation thrive—allowing them to not only sell more units but expand their reach, create lasting consumer bonds and make a serious impact in the market.

Without sales, there’s no business. For organisations wanting to stay relevant and profitable in the evolving competitive landscape, perfecting a sales strategy is essential. Sales teams must finesse their processes by incorporating emerging technologies, utilising data-driven insights, embracing innovation and developing customer-focused approaches.

Maintain your competitive edge and build lasting customer relationships. Book sales keynote speaker John Sanei to educate on sales strategies that stand the test of time.
