Selling is a big part of what you do at Marker America. You are not just selling anything. You are selling technology. You are going to get clients who will automatically buy what you offer. You are going to come across clients who need to be poked and prodded a little bit more.
A former Market America Rep has been gracious enough to offer some special tips to help you first-time reps. These tips are designed to help make your job of selling somewhat easier.
1) Start identifying your goals and what you want to achieve.
“You got to have a goal. Do you have a goal?”
Kit, Pretty Woman 1990
You cannot move forward in Market America unless you know who you are and what you want out of your place in the company. You cannot just say you want to make money. Everyone wants to make money. Your goals need to be more specific and more in tune with your personality. You cannot become a success unless you know who you are and what you can bring to the company.
2) You need to know that selling is not an art form. You might have heard that before, but you need to listen. Selling is as much a part of science and technology as the products are. You cannot treat every customer the same. Every customer brings you something new and different. You will interact with every customer differently. It is a process. Their needs are just as important as yours.
3) You need to focus on the clients in Market America who want to buy. This method is the cornerstone of your business. You cannot waste your time on people who do not really have an interest.
Plant the seed. Some of the seeds are going to grow. Others will remain lifeless in Market America. The clients who want to buy are going to be your bread and butter. The others ones are just going to be icing on the cake.
Each year, the different divisions of the Better Business Bureau that are scattered across the state of Illinois, choose business to award the Torch Award for Marketplace Ethics to. These companies must meet stringent criteria that is set forth by the Better Business Bureau and they are chosen by a panel of judges. This year one of those recipients was Aloha Construction and it is an honor that they more than deserve.
In order to qualify for the award, the companies selected must be meeting six criteria and they are that the leaders of the company demonstrate ethical practices so that their employees are positively influenced; that leaders communicate in a way in which high character ethics are promoted within the company; that the company leaders have beliefs that unify their company’s employees as a whole; that the management of the company implements exceptional management practices; that the company values its employees and has human resources practices in place that significantly benefit employees; and that the company is and has demonstrated a commitment to the community that surrounds it.
Aloha Construction meets all those criteria in more than one way. Aloha Construction is a quality construction company that is family owned and operated. It provides construction service to residents of Illinois, as well as southern Wisconsin. Services that the company provides its customers include roofing of all different materials, siding, and the installation of gutter systems. When completing such projects, Aloha Construction offers something that many other construction companies do not and that is a 10-year craftsmanship warranty on its roofing jobs. Recently, the company has also expanded to complete remodeling jobs, as well as restoration jobs after fire and water damage has occurred.
Aloha Construction only hires individuals who are highly trained to completed the construction jobs that they take on. In addition, the company makes sure that their employees are constantly given updated training as needed on new materials and techniques that enter into the industry. Its charitable efforts in the community are exceptional, as they have many projects that they have a hand in that benefit the community including partnering with the Bloomington Boys and Girls Club. Aloha Construction is just approaching the area of construction jobs with a completely different approach than other companies.
