challenging when taking over for a salesman who was well liked and extremely valued.
You will have to prove yourself…make them believe you can do the job just as good, if not better than your predecessor.
Your first step should be to contact all of your new accounts and set up a time to meet face to face.
Start with creating a good first impression.
Bring some refreshments along and be ready to do what you do best – sell…sell YOURSELF! Then get back to your office and send this letter.
Your customers know you’re busy, so they will really appreciate the extra gesture and this will give them a taste of your excellent communication and follow-up skills!
