What Every New Salesperson Needs to Know
Selling doesn`t necessarily take talent; it takes method. To sell well, follow the right steps from greeting to close.
In clear, succinct, readable fashion, author Frank McNair summarizes time-honored sales counsel. His book is well-organized and straightforward.
