Understanding the Need of Mobility in Organizational Growth
I’m good at sales. I’ve been good at sales for as long as I can remember. Since my youth days, I usually had a way with people; there was something about me that would get people to be easily convinced at any point that I want to drive home. This was one aspect of me that ensured that I was at a position to earn my daily bread. Nevertheless, sales gigs can be taunting. If you do not possess the requisite education credentials needed by most companies, then it can be very difficult for to secure a permanent marketing job in most companies.
These companies may need to enlist your service when they are launching new products and want potential clients to be sensitized about it or when they are facing fierce competition and they want to stay on top. Hence they will run to salespersons like me who can easily drive a sales home and guarantee that a client will be back soon. After that you are expendable.
So for the past 7 years that I have been marketing people’s products, I’ve worked with 5 companies, but none of them found me fit to retain the job on a permanent basis. That can be really depressing. It was a year ago when I lost my job at a time when I needed it the most. It was a time that I needed to take care of my ailing mother and losing the job was a big blow to me because I knew it would take some time before I secured another.
Mobile Technologies are Innovative in Reaching to Potential Clients
I had to go back to the drawing board. I needed to work out something, a formula maybe which would ensure that these companies respected me and would believe that I was indispensable. No solution was coming forth; worse still no job. One night as I was surfing the internet looking for companies that needed sales people, I happened to come across an online sales gigs that seemed exciting. It was about using the power of social media to connect with clients.
Being an addict of connecting through social media by cracking jokes and interacting with my friends, I decided to give it a shot. I didn’t expect much from the gig, because I believed that it was easier to make a sale by convincing a person face-to-face. Anyway, beggars have limited choices, and here I was desperately in need of some income to cater for my mom’s medication, what other choice did I have?
I applied for the gig and within hours I was approved. Then I spent a few days trying to crack a methodology that would be convincing. All that time, I tried to pitch a product on social media built I was I hadn’t made a single sale. In my research I realized that most of the potential clients were making inquiries about the products, but still none was buying.
Incorporating Various Social Tools is Key in Improving Customer Relationships
However, that was the game changer. I figured out that if anyone was inquiring about a product, they it meant that he/she was interested and with much convincing facts I could made a sale. I decided to get acquainted with more information about the company and their products.
This made me be at a better position of connecting with clients and be at a position to develop deeper customer relationship. It’s not rocket science to accept that many clients surf the internet using their mobile devices and thorough the power of social media platform, I was at a better position to reach to customers with better information about the products that I was selling and any other information that they needed before making a decision. With this mobility power I started making sales and within two months, I was receiving decent commissions.
At one point I even communicated about a promotion that was on the offing. I did this mostly to past clients and I got many interested. The company that I was working for noticed this and was really excited about my efforts. The interactions and engagement that I had got by communicating about the promotion was a mile ahead than the company had done. And the best bait about it was that I was too choosy in my wording that I sounded more convincing than they did in their social hurdle.
This made them to call me in for an interview which I successfully past and I got employed as a representative in customer relationship management. I hold the position to date and through the innovative social media technologies, I’ve accomplished in expanding the social data of clients and I usually reach them through emails, tweets and other platforms and I always a notch higher in analyzing the best mobile trends which can improve customer relationships. Through my suggestions the company created a mobile app to connect better with clients and the companies image has never has been better before as it is today. The best part, the job is permanent, I don’t know till when.
