Sales and Marketing expert, The Tailored Group, has this week released its position on why it believes a role in sales lays the foundations of any business. Essentially the firm argues that if an individual cannot sell a product, they won’t be able to sell themselves or the company they have created. The Tailored Group is built on individuals who are looking to develop their own businesses, and it encourages its workforce through a business opportunities program to aspire to become their boss. The Tailored Group is confident that it is providing contractors with the perfect foundations for their own businesses, believing the stamina, sales skills and organization learnt through time in sales molds individuals who have the confidence and dexterity to branch out on their own.
In a recent statement, the firm backed up its claims, breaking down the three reasons it believes a sales role molds the most successful individuals.
It is no myth that a job in sales is time-consuming. The roles offer substantial financial potential, but also require vast amounts of hard work and persistence for individuals to reap success. When looking to start a business, young professionals will need to be ready to put in massive shifts to get a business off its feet. Based on this, The Tailored Group argues that there is a huge crossover between those in sales and young entrepreneurs and is confident that the stamina one builds in the field will be directly transferable to the beginnings of their entrepreneurial career.
Without the ability to sell, no one will be able to win over customers looking to invest in the business. The Tailored Group spend huge amounts of time “tailoring” contractors approaches to customers, with the hopes that they will engage and communicate on a more meaningful level.
Further to sales training, the firm also provides each of its contractors with organizational workshops built on transferring one’s goals into a reputable timetable that will allow them to achieve each of these aspirations. The firm understands that structure and organization provide the path needed for budding entrepreneurs to excel on their own.
The Tailored Group hope that its business development program and its contractors time in the field will provide aspiring entrepreneurs with the inspiration to excel with their future business plans. Moving into 2018 the firm predicts a number of its workforce will look to begin their own business and the company is keen to continue the tradition of building the next generation of entrepreneurs.
