Working as a salesman on commission can be both incredibly tough and incredibly rewarding. You’ve got to be constantly fresh, showing enthusiasm for your product, describing it time and time again with the excitement of someone describing it for the first time. You’ve got to come up with new ideas to promote your product, to hold your potential buyers just a couple minutes longer than the last salesman did.
What are you going to do? Print off a flashy brochure with diagrams and descriptions of your product inside and out? Give out free mini-models of your product? Show videos of your product in use? People are inundated with flashy advertising and face technology every day, everywhere, whether they like it or not. They’re not easily impressed when they’ve seen everything technology can do.
What can you do that’s original? Something people haven’t seen before? Hmmm… people like free samples. Not just a business card, or a cheap plastic keychain, but something they can use, and learn a bit about your products in the process. What about a USB flash drive? You could combine articles, videos, and images of your product into an interactive presentation that people could plug into their computers and watch at their convenience.
You could get a pretty good deal on purchasing bulk flash drives through a company called CFgear. Got company colors or a special logo that identify your brand? You can select the design and color of the drive and decide if you want a logo and company information printed on. CFgear can pre-load the drives with whatever data you would like on them. In fact, it can be set up to automatically pop up an intro window once the computer recognizes it.
Yes, there are ways to put yourself a notch above the other salesmen on the block. Who’s going to turn down a free flash drive? And potential customers will see your company name every time they look at the drive and see your logo. Great way to build a brand name.
So here’s the drill: going door to door, standing at your company’s booth at an exposition, presenting your product to industries that might use it, you can benefit from purchasing bulk flash drives loaded with information about the item you’re trying to sell. It’s worth a try.
Several companies have given testimonies of how CFgear helped their business. The Brookings Economic Development Corporation was seeking state funding and wanted to communicate the quality of its work. They received flash drives set up with a custom interface linked to web content describing the corporation’s work.
Customization and creativity are the goals. There’s no limit more than how far outside the box you can think. Make your company and your products stand out above all others, and you’ll see an increase in your market.
