There are a lot of things that can help people better prepare to do summer sales. First, of all they should practice being a good listener. This means paying attention to what people say and asking good questions based on what they say. Being a good listener also means paying attention to body language; how people stand, what they do with their hands and their facial expressions. Next, summer sales reps should practice getting outside their comfort zone. This means talking to new, and sometimes strange, people in a variety of situations. Stepping outside their comfort zone like this will help summer sales reps to expand their comfort zone, allowing them to be comfortable in a lot of situations which will make them more capable of thinking on their feet quickly and easily. Finally, they should develop a regular exercise schedule. Exercising regularly will help summer sales reps to have more energy to work long hours. Exercise will also allow help them to feel better so they can stay positive. Summer sales reps who are energetic and positive are much more likely to make sales. These three areas of preparation are only a few of the ways that summer sales reps can be better prepared, but they are a good place to start.
