Marketing and Business – I’m Not A Salesman!


“Everything You Do in Business is Related to Marketing”photo-Allen Bostrom

Every Week I Washed the Truck

I had to wear a nice shirt too. I was only the delivery driver, but Dad would say, “To many of our customers, you’re the only salesman they see on a regular basis.”I don’t think I understood completely what he was saying back then. As a teenager, many of the things he said to me weren’t easy to understand, but he was right. In fact, there have been many times since then that I’ve really appreciated the lessons I learned working for my father.

But the Delivery Driver isn’t a Salesman!

Yeah, that’s what I thought too. But I have since come to understand that every person who deals with a customer or client is one of the salespeople. If I was polite and helpful to our customers as the delivery driver, it helped our salesman when it was time for him to sell.Often, how your customer service department deals with questions or problems will determine whether or not a customer or client does business with you company. Believe it or not, a rude Accounts Receivable person can loose the company’s biggest account in a single phone call. Since I was a teenager, I’ve decided not to do business with some companies because the person I dealt with was a poor salesman. (Many of these people weren’t officially salespeople, either.)

If You Deal With Customers or Clients, You’re a Salesperson

Even if it’s only occasionally. Dealing with your customers and clients makes you a salesperson. Every positive interaction with a customer reinforces their relationship and makes it possible for your salespeople to be successful. Every negative interaction makes it harder for your sales department. In business, sales drive everything. If sales don’t happen, both money and jobs are lost.

The Accounting Department Knows As Much About the Customers as the Sales Department

Don’t say it out load. Nobody in your sales department will agree. Outside the accounting department, who else in your company knows who is slow to pay, processes invoices quickly, has great cash flow or always adds sales items to your invoices?Often, the Accounting Department deals with customers more frequently than the sales force. For that reason, it’s important to remember you are the only salesperson most of your customers see on a regular basis.
