Are you in a sales role – Do you think about starting a small business

You are not on your own. Like you, many sales people realize they have many of the skills needed to be successful in business.

These skills come from the experience you have from your sales job.

The other reason many sales people make a success of a part time business start up, is because of the type of person you are.

Many of the personality traits and attributes needed for sales are the same as you will need if you start a business for yourself.

There are some questions that stop many people going ahead and bringing in that second income.

Before you make a decision on your future read a bit more on this important topic…

The Internet – Are your small business sales getting the full benefit

If your small business sales enterprise is looking to get online, or you have website that isn’t bursting with red hot sales leads, this information is for you. The information here, and on the website, will give you more knowledge before you spend any money on your company or own business website.

See some ideas on how to get online, and how to get the best sales results from our existing website. Then after you have read Sales Prospecting - The Internet - and Your Small Business you can think about what actions to take.

Start a small business using
your sales skills

Starting a small business is something most sales people think about at some time.

You might have pictured the additional pleasures a second income can give you. Or talked about a secure financial future and paying off debts. Perhaps you have looked deeper into the future and what you will want to be doing with your life.

Have you ever thought you could run your employer’s business better than they do?

And haven’t we all at some time thought there must be more than this?

The reason sales people often think about starting a small business is because they have all the right skills and experience.

Think about your skills what you can do, and don’t take it for granted.

If you’re in a sales role you have:

  • Great communication skills that you can put to good use for yourself.
  • An understanding of selling, and making a profit
  • You understand people and what they want

There are probably many more skills and attributes that you have and use every day in your sales role without thinking. When it comes to starting a small business sales people have a head start on others.

I’m not risking my money on huge start up costs

This is one of the things that put me off starting a part time business for years.

Then along came the Internet and all that changed. Starting a small business online involves very low start up cost. A lot less than we spend on night’s out or our hobbies and pastimes in a month. This was the answer to my hunger to start something, and prove what I could do for myself without risking money I didn’t have available.

The next negative thought that put me off was, I don’t have any computer skills or web building experience.

If this sounds like you, read what happened for me at Start a Small Business online.

Are You and Your Small Business Making Full Use of the Potential of the Internet

This page on the website is aimed at 2 groups of small business sales people:

1. Those that don’t yet have a website but realize just how important and beneficial a small business website will be.

2. Those small business sales organizations that have a website but are not getting great sales leads from it.

Take a look at 2 really good ways to get your
small business online

There are some great ways to easily build your own website. Some website providers now supply packages with tools that help you to easily build your own website.

The feeling of building your own website, especially for non-technical people like me, is fantastic. My words appearing online alongside graphics and images, gives me a great sense of achievement. But it took a big investment of time, and it may take a while before you start seeing sales leads flowing into your office from your website.

You can get a website built for you, and this will save you time. But it will be more expensive than the very low cost of building your own site.

Websites that are not giving you a constant
flow of sales leads

What if you already have a website but it just isn’t working for you.

There is a quick test you can do to check the sales impact of your website on its visitors. There are still many large and small business sales companies that don’t understand what it takes to get your website working for you and bringing in hot sales leads.

Take a look at a full page of free information on websites for small business sales. Put yourself in an informed position to make a decision and take some action to get the most out of your Internet presence. Open Sales Prospecting Training for Small Business Websites and learn more.
