Hire Freelance Sales Representatives

Sales representatives are responsible for selling a variety of retail, wholesale goods and services to customers, businesses, organizations or government agencies. They are extremely knowledgeable about the product or service that they are selling, and can help customers find solutions to their problems and ensure a smooth sales process. They can also help perform latent need analysis, where customers may not be aware that they have issues and buying a particular product may solve these issues.

What Sales Representatives Do?

Sales representatives are sales experts who take care of an entire sales process right from generating leads and contacting prospects to providing after-sales support. They either use business directories, word-of-mouth referrals, internet search or social media to generate a list of leads. They also obtain their contact details based on their possible interest in the product or service they are selling. They might contact prospective customers through cold calling or by directly visiting the client and presenting the product or service. In order to make successful sales, they prepare elaborate presentations and prepare for product demonstrations for clients. They also expertly negotiate deals and contracts with potential clients to ensure the satisfaction of the customer and reasonable profit for the company.

Apart from sales, they also carry out cost-benefit analyses of current and potential customers, and needs-analysis of customers to ensure that their needs are met though the product or service. They prepare regular market and sales reports to understand progress, and proposals, PoCs and presentations for their clients. They also work on supply management, maintain good relationships with existing customers, and handle complaints and feedback reasonably for the possibility of referral and future sales.
