Week 4 Project Update: Final Week!

Hey ya’ll, I’m Grace and this month I took on the challenge to set myself up to become a successful sales rep in 30 days. In this project, I landed a job as a sales rep, traveled with the company to work a booth at a trade show, networked at mixers with new and existing clientele, created leads lists for my area, made cold email sequences, and presented material to clientele.

Creating A Landing Page

Over the course of the month, I’ve been constructing a landing page outline to slowly fill in with the content of the project. The landing page will be a “portfolio” segment on my website. I spent this week going back and editing all my documentation posts and updates and linking them to my outline. I also took the time to fill out the project page with strong copy to present what I accomplished this month.

Presentation Portfolio

After meeting and discussing sales with seasoned sales reps at the Iges Trade show, it became clear I needed a presentation binder or software set up. Some reps told me to do it all as a physical binder, others told me everything should be on the cloud so I could access it whenever it was applicable.

They were both right. I chose to make a folder on my ThinkPad with several subcategories.

  • Database of all past prints
  • 2022 catalog 
  • 2022 brewery catalog 
  • Order sheets
  • Price list 

Then I requested fabric samples to put in a mini binder, so I could still show off the actual quality of our merchandise in person. But having it all on the ThinkPad and copies in my dropbox, I can access everything no matter where I am from my phone or computer.

The other major advantage of the think pad is the touch screen and screen pen. I can draw right on images or presentations and make notes. That way I never forget any details I need from the customers.

Additional Content

This week I also wrote out more content based on sales lessons I’ve learned. I wrote an article on how to naturally make sales, in person, without a script. To talk about different soft skills I’ve picked up over the years of customer service and working in sales this month.

I also created videos to help document my project and link to my landing page.
