As they say, life’s a roller coaster ride and all we need is to hold it tight. A job in sales team is the most lucrative one in any company as it is mostly seen as the glamorous side of a business. It is where ambitious go-getters work who bring in the new deals and earn handsome rewards.
Almost all the other departments get jealous of the work style of the sales people but it is not what it seems. They might have an ease of working but the amount of effort put in by them is the real game changer. Actually, it’s more of the smart work they do. That is what favours the sales people as they get good cash incentives and rewards in kind other than their fixed salary.
Let’s take you down to the career line of a salesperson, how it all begins and what heights one can achieve in this line of profession.
Business Development – Organisation’s Backbone
Business development is best described as the creation of long-term value for an organization from customers, markets, and relationships. People cut out for business development roles are very different from people in marketing operations — rather than spend their time digging around other businesses, they prefer to build real relationships with potential partners, customers, and influencers.
