80% of sales jobs will change in the next 3 years


Share on LinkedIn

It is a fact. Many sales experts and commentators are telling us that 80% of sales roles will change by 2016.

That doesn’t necessarily mean 8 out of 10 salespeople will lose their jobs, but it does mean that most of us are going to have to change the way we sell.

We already know that the way we communicate is changing. We are having far less face-face meetings than before, as we begin to utilize the array of online conferencing tools available to us.

The way we learn is changing, as we use the internet to research and keep up to date – how long before newspapers and books disappear altogether?

The way we develop relationships is changing: We now connect through social media sites like LinkedIn and Twitter.

And of course the way in which we buy and sell is changing forever …
Are you ready to change?
