Looking For Work In Sales? Here's How To Create Your Dream Sales Gig
Are you a new sales rep looking to find a great account/influencer/business to sell for?
Maybe a current online sales rep looking to find a new position? While most sales reps will be drastically underpaid for the value that they bring to their accounts, this article uncovers how you can create your dream sales gig. If you're more of a visual learner, check out the video below as it walks you through this process:
Key fundamentals you must understand first:
Nobody is going to save you - your life is your choice
“Be of value to valuable people”
Results are all that matter
Why sell for somebody else?
A good gig will market for you
You don’t have fulfillment work
You truly set your own schedule
You can use your commissions to fund other ventures that create wealth
My sales background:
My first “true” sales job was for GNC
By setting company sales records, I was promoted to manager
Once I’d capped my earning potential at GNC, I started my own fitness consulting business, and dove right in
I sucked for a year on my own until...
I got smart enough to hire a coach
By simply using their sales script, I closed 7.5k in new business in my first week
Grew the business to multiple 6 figures in annual revenue over the next year
Got tired of selling fitness, and I left the business
Started selling for the business that made me successful in my own
Wanted to diversify what I was selling to create more stability
I found an influencer that was growing quickly
Reached out and found out he had an affiliate program for 40% commission
I began selling his offer as an affiliate on my own
After making a few sales, I proposed coming on to sell full-time
Took his business from 20k/mo to over 100k/mo in 3 months
Created my own sales methodologies
Began coaching sales in both influencers’ programs
As I documented my own sales processes, I was able to start handing off calls to reps
I now manage sales teams and make overrides on company revenue
Keys to finding a role:
Invest in a program you would love to sell to learn it inside and out
Sell an influencer’s programs through their affiliate program (or ask if they’d be open to setting up an affiliate arrangement for you)
After making sales for them, sell them on why they should bring you onto the team
“Be of value to valuable people"
Go with a sales agency only IF:
You value the coaching that you will receive more than the commissions (because you will make less in the short term, but increase your earning potential long-term)
