Direct sales is a challenging job. Patience and persistence are the main factors that lead to success in direct sales. I was doing direct sales, promoting children educational materials for few years, the experiences helped me in my present job. Due to inexperience, I needed to follow my team supervisor on the job training. After one week, I had to do it on my own.Initially, I was very nervous when talking to clients. I was unable to close any sales because of poor presentation skills and inadequate product knowledge.Luckily, my team manager Mr. Tony kept on motivating me, telling me that I was capable. He told me that he could not close any sales in the first week. With passion and undaunted spirit, he finally closed six sales in the third week. He told me that success needed persistence and determination. He gave me few motivation books to read.After that, I kept on learning the product knowledge and improving my selling skills. I finally closed four sales in the third week, it boosted my confidence.Since then, I worked extremely hard and was promoted to sales supervisor after few months. I started to lead the new team and taught them whatever I had learned about direct sales. I remembered that I had won a camera during the team competition and a free trip to Bali as well.This was indeed a wonderful direct sales experiences for me. Please do not give up if you are in direct sales.
