Title: How to Hire a Good Technical Salesperson

How to Hire a Good Technical Salesperson Manual

Do you face the task of converting technical people into sales people?

Hiring a good salesperson for a technical business is difficult. When the new guy doesn't work out, it's expensive and frustrating. In this unique book, you'll find detailed information about how to approach the task to succeed.

If you can get one, a really good salesperson will bring tremendous benefits to your business:

  • Good salespeople bring in feedback from your customers. This can be a source of ideas for improvements or new products.
  • Leads are turned into business, not wasted
  • It inspires your other employees by demonstrating that excellent sales results are possible. By the same token they render invalid the usual excuses.
  • You'll get a strong flow of profitable orders
  • Your company grows
  • If customers like and respect your representative, it increases goodwill
  • You don't have to invest much of your own time, which frees you up to develop other parts of your business


But finding and keeping an outstanding sales producer isn't easy. My experience is that many technology companies, perhaps most, don't set about hiring a salesperson in an effective way.
