Job Description for Inside Sales Representative

An inside sales representative works for a company that wants to sell a product or service. It is the inside sales representative's job to complete the process of that sale from start to finish. This may be done over the phone or in person via walk-in clients. The sales representative's job may consist of tracking down new sales prospects and maintaining relationships with potential future buyers. An inside sales representative is responsible for being very familiar with the product or service he or she is selling. This may be accomplished by attending training sessions, testing out samples of the product or service, or even purchasing the product in order to use it and become acquainted with it. Inside sales representatives are typically given a sales quota by management. Meeting the quota on a weekly or monthly basis is the goal. The work environment for inside sales reps is usually indoors, either on the company's premises or at an outside location. Hours for sales reps vary depending on the company, but may extend beyond typical business hours to include nights and weekends. Once a sale is made, the sales rep may also be responsible for ensuring that the product or service arrives on time, as well as following up to find out more about customer satisfaction. The education required for an inside sales representative position varies greatly, but sometimes requires as little as a high school diploma or equivalent certificate. Good "people skills" are essential, along with good time management skills. (Copyright 2018 PayScale.com)
