Sales reps are tasked with establishing relationships with prospects and proving the worth of their product or solution to eventually close the deal. The job of a sales rep requires a lot of communication through phone calls, emails, and demos. Regardless of how long you’ve been working in sales, you can still accidentally say the wrong thing, which can cause a big problem.
