    A good salesperson should be presentable. Like in other areas of life, first impressions matter. Tact and persuasivess will make the customers to follow the sales pitch and follow up to make a purchase. A good salesperson should have empathy to be able to place himself in the customers' shoes and address their concerns about the functionality of their product. Optimism and resilience will see him through challenging times and enable him deal with difficult customers.

    One of the biggest things I look for is someone who doesn't overdo it. Whenever I see someone overly excited or even just has too big of a smile I start to think a little more defensively. I do consider that some people may just be naturally like that but just in general it's one of the things I watch out for.

    • Easy to talk to.
    • Willing to learn new things.
    As long as person have these qualities, he or she will be able to drive sales to a company or business. It also helps if the person is naturally positive and happy as this shows to customers as well.
