The most aggressive and probably the most stereotyped salesperson is the Pit Bull. Yes, you know them; they will attack anything that has even the remotest scent of "Eau de prospect". And they will attack with a ferocity, aggression and tenacity that is both awe inspiring and terrifying. All they need is a pant cuff to latch onto and they NEVER let go.
Their intensity is rivaled only by their lack of fear. They are the classic thick-skinned, aggressive salesperson. Closing and objection handling is breakfast for this champion.
Keep throwing them meat and they will turn something up for sure. Rest assured however, if you have a Pit Bull in your kennel you WILL receive calls from terrorized prospects and belligerent neighbors and you may even be asked by authorities to restrain this beast. DO NOT send them to cocktail parties without a muzzle. On second thought, send them to a pub … not a cocktail party!
The Pit Bull's success comes from shear power and fearlessness. They will make more calls, field more rejections and keep on selling than any other breed - even when they should really back off. Adversity is simply a wake-up call.
However, what they make up for in aggression and perseverance, they may lack in tactfulness and strategy and therefore, they must be trained properly. Pit Bulls can be very rich or very frustrated.
Learn your strengths and weaknesses, tips on increasing personal sales and tips for avoiding the pitfalls so you can play to your natural talent.
