Which sales is better..??

#1 Postby khyatiimtn » Mon May 25, 2015 4:59 pm

I personally believe both the sales i.e. outside sales and inside sales has it's own importance. Outside sales deals with people , selling products to them , pitching the products whereas inside sales deals with telephonic calls , pitching over calls , after sales service and follow up with the potential customers.
Moreover , if an individual is not comfortable with travelling and still wants to be a part of marketing and sales can do so through inside sales.
Hence to conclude with outside and inside sales both are equally important.

Well sales is the sole reason for a company to do business.Sales can be done through different mediums.We have the direct sales,door to door sales,internet or web sales etc.Well looking through all kind of sales,we can't make out that which sales is the best,but we know that what are the advantages and disadvantages the company has when it does the different kind of sales.In my opinion the traditional door to door sales is the best.This door to door sales cater to each and every person of the society.So,when a sales person goes to the door of a customer,he is able to market his product well and in turn can also know the requirements of the customer through face to face interaction.Although this form of sales has become a little old,but it is very effective till now.If you ask any common man that what kind of sales they want,all will answer that door to door sales is the best.

Well with the advancement in the technology we can't restrict ourselves to just door to door sales,we need to invent some technology so that the door to door sales can become more effective as the competition is becoming intense now days.The door to door salesperson can add some extra value to his efforts.He can make the use of social media to locate his customers,so that he can make out where the potential lies for his product.This can highly benefit the company.So the introduction of social media is necessary for the effective sales, as the change in door to door sales is needed.You have to upgrade your business,otherwise your competitors will overtake you.So through door to door sales the salesperson can personally listen to the customer and make out what the customer needs actually.So what caters to the general public best is the need of the hour and in today's times door to door sales is doing it right.

Outside vs inside sales
The sale of product or service by sales personnel by going out into the field to meet customer is the outside sales. The sales person often travel to meet customer face to face and to maintain relationship with existing customer. It can be expensive since companies have to compensate outside sales personnel for their travelling, housing and food.
On the other hand the sale of product or services by sales personnel who reach customer by phone or online medium. It depends on the phone and the internet and is common in the retail industry. Inside sales personnel do not travel and make cold contacts. A company may outsource its inside sales to third party instead of conducting sales in-house.
It’s not easy to compare both. It depends on type of customer, type of product and way of buying whether it is online or offline.

As we know both are one n the same sales which are done sitting inside the closed room or door to door. but interesting point here inside sales is more preferable to products or services which doesn't need and any touch and feel concept like house hold products which can be tested in field sales by the customer, instead all they need to do is innovative handling skills, handling different mindsets and pulling out some leads out of it and inside sales can have mesmerizing presentations images which can attract customers. coming to field sales proper presentation skills required convincing and lots of hard work required to travel convince but it has their own advantages that some customer feel safe if they are assured by physical presence and some by other factors.

example buying a product in presence of sales person or buying a product online through website.

which method to choose i purely dependent on type of customer a online buyer or else an offline buyer and type of product offered.
we cant summarize or conclude on any one method as both rest with their pro's n con's.

Inside sales & field sales, Now the question is which sales is better?

It is not a matter of choice rather depends entirely on the nature of the product for opting inside sales or field sales for the company.
Now when it comes to the job holder it differs from person to person on the basis of factors like travelling,Comfort etc.

In general,inside sales is comparatively more challenging then outside sales as it is easier for the person to read face expressions which is possible only in outside sales task.
In my opinion inside sales is better as it saves time also,only important thing is sales personnel should have the tactics of handling clients over telephonic conversation.

the type of sales is depend upon the person dealing with it.

Because if person does not have capacity to work on field and still they are interested in sales and marketing then they can opt for the inside sales.

And if person is capable of doing work on field and can deal with the customers without any hesitation then they should opt for the outside sales.

But in both sales the person should have great patience, confidence and convincing skills which i very much important for the sales either outside
or inside sales.

But according to me outside sales is good because u get the chance to travel to many places and have chance to directly interact with the people,
which make this area so interesting and also we learn about different type of persons and personality. And even we have bonus depending upon the sales where in inside sales there is no bonus only target.

I suppose sales is sales wherever or which ever product we sell does not make much difference .
Inside sales refers to generating leads by virtually contacting them through emails, phone calls, video calls where as field sales generally indicates going to the person and convincing to buy the respective product or service.
Whether inside sales or field sales we should explain them in a detailed manner about our organization, product and negotiate with the clients
In either of the jobs the key tasks are almost similar provided the difference may lie in physical presence.
