  5. 5. Any salesperson worth their salt will know that it is so much easier to get a sale from returning client, rather than from a new one. In fact, it has been found that not only does it take more effort to get a sale from new customers, returning customers are likely to spend more during the next purchase.

If you're one who believes in the mantra, "Don't bring me problems. Bring me solutions". You would probably be happy with having someone with sales experience in your team. PROBLEM SOLVERS 3
