Business Sales

Business Sales

Nearly everything a business uses to make its own product or service is itself a product or service purchased from another business. This creates an enormous, extremely competitive market for business to business sales.

Business sales can be very different to personal sales, you won’t be in a store front and instead of dealing with different customers every day you will often be managing ongoing relationships with a small number of extremely high value customers.
