I'm 26 years old, have a bachelors degree but I only have a small amount of knowledge regarding the world of sales in general. I've sold security systems and started my own dealership. I don't have capital for advertising so most of my sales in that area come from personal and business relationships that I have created. One sales career which caught my interest was for a company that manufactured and distributed building materials such as bricks and concrete. It included both business to business sales and visits to individual homeowners as well. The reason why my interest was sparked was because many of the sales happened not because the salesman had a vast network. Rather, they occurred because through advertising the company would simply send the salesman out to a myriad of interested customers. It is obvious to state that spending your time talking to already interested customers instead of normal people will create more sales. The question is, what industries and what positions provide these type of opportunities? Also, what types of industries or companies allow you to work for multiple companies thus taking advantage of the advertising of all involved? I've thought about working with five different Home and Business security companies whilst taking advantage of their leads and interested customers but I rather wouldn't want to face legal action for breaking non-compete agreements. Any and all opinions are welcomed.
