THE TRUTH ABOUT COMMERCE*

E-Commerce

Commerce: n. buying and/or selling of ingus in relatively large amounts

Ingus: n. information and/or goods and/or services

A garage sale and auctions are usually not considered serious commerce which truly exists when ingus is bought and sold in the hundreds and thousands and even millions.

THE TRUTH ABOUT SELLING+

selling

Sell: v. to take money for giving possession of one or more subsets which may be ingus and/or behaviors

Selling ingus or information and/or goods and/or services is what most humans understand but it is also possible to sell behaviors. Think of anything which you can do or any behavior and you could probably sell it to someone even though it may just be your parents or close relatives and friends.

Mom or dad. Will you give me 10 dollars for doing 40 pushups? I can only do 30 now. Will you give me 5 dollars for memorizing the words to your favorite song?

 

Money can’t buy everything such as good genes, a good personality, good relationships, or restore wilderness once it is destroyed. However, with money you can buy the services of humans with good genes, good personalities, good social connections, and you can conserve and restore wilderness which isn’t totally destroyed.

8 MYTHS ABOUT GREAT SALESPEOPLE

hs-pano_22139

The 8 myths are as follows and you may at first disagree or agree:

 

Great salespeople are fast talking pushy extroverts

 

Great salespeople have strong academic backgrounds

 

Great salespeople make great sales managers

 

You can transform a good salesperson into a great one

 

Great salespeople want to be promoted in the company

 

Great salespeople can sell anything to anyone and will be outstanding in any selling job

 

The internet eliminates the need for great salespeople

 

A great product or great engineering makes great salespeople unnecessary

There are some relatively rare exceptions to these rules or general principles because people are complex and not totally predictable in every circumstance. For example there may be the rare great salesperson who acquires a managerial education and goes on to become a great manager also.

There may be the relatively rare academician who also has developed people skills or is very good at communicating with people and can transform him or her self into a great salesperson.

There may be an internet ad or video which is so compelling and convincing that intervention by a great salesperson is not necessary and the product or service will sell itself without further human sales assistance.

Humans can have multiple skills and be good at more than one job or profession so absolute rules for them do not always apply.

The truth or general principles or rules about these 8 myths which have rare exceptions is written up in Inc.com by Geoffrey James whose link follows:

MASS MARKETING HAS CHANGED TO FOCUSED MARKETING FOR MODERN SELLING SUCCESS

marketing-strategy

Mass marketing via TV, radio, mail, and newspapers is no longer cost effective and is being replaced by focused selling to smaller identified groups of customers with special needs and demands. 

The practical historical philosophy that one commercial or ad fits all customers is quickly biting the dust and being replaced by customized selling approaches to much smaller audiences.

Here is a link to an article in inc.com which describes the revolutionary changes occurring.
