This is, once again, not my favorite speaker. He makes a good point that we are all salespeople. We all live our lives selling ourselves, selling our product, and selling others dreams. Life is sales and we are the salesmen.
I completely agree that all people in every business is a salesperson. No matter what you're doing, you are selling something. Whether it is you you are selling or it is your company's product. If you are out in public and you say you work for a company, they are seeing you as a representative for that company. Whether you want to or not, you are the "ambassador" for that company's image.
It’s important to always be inviting to people in your area and place of business because everyone is a potential customer. I think the idea of considering yourself to be an ambassador is key because it will help drive that mentality. I can especially apply this in my accounting career because literally anyone and everyone are endless customers. I can make a connection getting coffee, shopping at the grocery store, or just at my firm.

I'd have to agree with what 'ole Tom said in this one. You are an ambassador for your company at all times and you should always act as if you are representing your company. This includes your actions and posts on social media web sites like Facebook.
I believe that everyone is a sales person. Everyone is constantly selling something be it a product, company, or service. Regardless of the profession there is some sort of sales going on. Even if you are just a consultant, in order to make money you have to sell your image and professional opinion to clients. Another good example of sales being a part of every day life is in job interviews. You have to pitch yourself and your resume to potential employers in the hope that they will choose you over the competition.

Great point! Every since I joined my sorority I have been told that I am representation of it, which means whatever I do regardless to if it is related to the sorority or not my actions reflect directly on the organization. I never really paid much attention to the fact that everyone who is a part of any organization not just greek affiliated is a representation of set organization. It makes so much sense to be a great salesperson because whether we like it or not that is what we are.

I am little sad this guy didnt yell at the camera like he sometimes does. On top of that, that's a funny story on how he felt the need to be an ambassador. Ive been hit up by a few people while working at different places, asking me questions. If i notice they don't work for the comp and are a clientele i always try to help them if i can. Best case scenario there impressed by the company and it adds a little something to the customer satisfaction. Ive been hit up with some compliments from bosses for taking the initiative. Worse case i get to take a break from what i was doing before.
I completely agree with this video. No matter what job you have you are always selling something whether it's a product, service, or even yourself if you realize it or not you are selling something. It's important to market yourself well and portray an image that's inviting to other people because you never know when an opportunity my present itself.
Mr. Peters is very right in saying that anyone in business is a sales person. Even when you aren't selling a product, you are always selling yourself or the company you work for. It comes from the pride you have in yourself and your job. You are an ambassador for your company even if you are not making anything. You are an ambassador for yourself.

I think this is true that every person in business is a sales person. But not everyone can close a deal. there are many individuals who are not good at communicating with others and are not a "people person" these people struggle to communicate and can not create a demand for certain situations that they are tying to sell.
I agree with what he is saying. It is always important to remember to always sell yourself and the company you work for in a good light. If it is after hours and someone asks about your business, a bad answer could cost you in the future if it got back. You are always representing what you do and who you work for.

Everyone is a salesperson. Not only do we market ourselves to others, but we also promote our company as well as other companies. Any product or service that we use and talk about makes us a salesperson. If we like a certain brand of shoes we will tell our friends about it. If we like a certain service that we received, we will talk about it. Any time tat we talk about a brand we are advertising for that brand.
I agree with this message, I myself have thought about this when at a store or in town when someone approaches me looking for assistance. At that moment that person is depending on your judgement and guidance. I think that this is good to think about because you never know who will seek you for advice, and it will up to you to either decline and admit you have no knowledge of the inquiry or take the moment to offer up what would be your expert advise.

Mr.Peters statement about everyone being a salesperson is true. You are the ammbassador of your own brand. You have to believe in yourself enough to protray confidence which is a noticeable seller. You have to believe in what you sell, and if you do it will the "selling" part will come naturally because it will sell itself.

This video really hits home to me. I believe good customer service and politeness is essential for ALL employees. Many companies do not put effort into this concept but I think it is important that every single employee from the CEO to the janitor understand that they are the face of the company and it is important that they are always thinking about that at the work place and in leisure time.
