#1 Perhaps They Will Someday?
Some prospects will swear that they will call you back, but as time passes, you will realize that they won’t, in fact, call you back. It’s a way for prospects to get out of the conversation with you.
#2 They Kept Their Word!
Though most prospects who promise to call back don’t actually do so, there are those who keep their word. It’s always both a surprise and a rush of excitement about the opportunities that are now open to you.
#3 Congratulations on Upselling Successfully!
Congratulations! Your boss thinks that you just closed a deal and upsold successfully. Shh, don’t tell them that the customer actually did all the work for you and all you had to do is agree with them.
#4 Realistic Expectations
Sales managers’ goals can be extremely unrealistic. What’s worse is that your boss may be completely unaware of this while you and your colleagues suffer.
#5 Wasting away in the cold email abyss
We've all been here... But don't let your past determine your future. Use Sendspark to send video emails that get replies!
#6 Oh My God, Really?
Some salespeople are really lucky or savvy in their job, so they keep getting more and more leads. They seem to be doing their job so well that there are no leads left for you! And that’s when you get desperate…
#7 Confidence Is Key
After completing your training, it can feel like you know everything about sales. Think again! But on a serious note, you can get some help by hiring an experienced writer from the writing service Best Essays Education who will handle your documentation or content creation while you focus on the sales themselves.
#8 I Did It!
One number every salesperson obsesses over is the monthly sales quota. And once you reach it, the feeling of pride can be infinite (and the jealous looks from your colleagues can be equally flattering).
#9 I’m the Top Salesman Now
It’s a great feeling when you hit that monthly quota, but it’s even more rewarding when you become the top salesman on your team. You feel like a boss and a master of your craft.
#10 Cue Nervous Laughter
You’ve probably heard things like “sales is easy”, “it’s not that stressful”, “anyone can sell” – and laughed. They don’t know what it actually feels like most of the time. Good for them.
#11 Cold Calling Is No Joke
Jokes aside... this is why personalized video is far superior to cold calls! Connect with customers they way they WANT to connect with sellers. Instead of being met with rejection, you'll book up to 300% more meetings. 🚀
#12 Rejection… It Happens Even to the Greatest
No matter how experienced you are, you could still get rejected. And when you do hear that “no” or “not today” or any other variation of the rejection phrase, that’s when it finally hits you. It’s rough, but it’s something salespeople eventually get used to.
Perhaps it was a rocky road for you and there were many hiccups along the way. But you finally closed the sale! It’s time to celebrate!
#14 In Your Dreams!
Your manager doesn’t want to let you have a vacation? Or even a day off? Perhaps you could make another proposition to them – they can hire a writer from the writing agency Trust My Paper to outsource some of your team’s content creation that you are responsible for.
#15 It’s Hard Work
They are a newbie and they are eager to learn, but they have absolutely zero experience with sales. Oh, this will be a long day, week, maybe even month... But everyone starts somewhere!
#16 What’s the Deal, Man?
You’re talking to a prospect and they keep asking the same question over and over again. Do they not understand your answer? Should you explain it again? Do they think your reply will change if they ask the question once more?
#17 Nobody Likes Meetings
Every time another meeting starts, you think it won’t be like the last time. But you are wrong. It drags on and on and makes you feel like it will never end. What was the reason for the meeting? Anyone remembers? Why aren't we having an async meeting instead??
#18 I Need to Talk to My Spouse!
How many times has this happened? You spent hours, days, or even weeks on your communication with a prospect yet they tell you they aren’t the decisionmaker. They need to talk to their spouse (or their boss).
#19 Anything for You, My Customer!
Your prospect or customer keeps cracking jokes. In an effort to be polite, you fake a laugh once. Then another time, and another one. You’re very funny, keep going!
#20 Right in the Heart!
You can be disappointed by the amount of time you spend on a prospect who never calls you back. But what really feels painful and hits you right in the heart is when a prospect says they chose your competitor over you.
At the end of the day, the sales department is probably not so stressful, after all. All these memes were created by fellow sales professionals – some of them are reflective of the stressful environment while others look at the “fun” side of working in sales.
