When people think of sales representatives, says Andre Moxie, they frequently resort to distasteful anecdotes based on door-to-door vacuum cleaner salesmen from days gone by. In reality, according to Andre Moxie, the best salespeople are the honest good listeners who want their clients to find the product that fits them best.
Andre Moxie acknowledges that there are always bad apples no matter where you look, but the key is to look deeper. When shopping for a product or service, advises Andre Moxie, it is not necessary to work with the first salesperson to come along. Pay attention to your sales representative, says Andre Moxie, and make sure they are paying attention to you. If there is not a good rapport with the salesperson, Andre Moxie encourages people to feel free to search out another sales person, as there are usually many others from which to choose.
For Andre Moxie, integrity is a core value that sets the tone for all of his other endeavors. This is the foundation to which Andre Moxie credits his professional success. However, Andre Moxie does not measure those successes economically as much as qualitatively. A satisfied client base, repeat business and friendly notes from thankful customers and employers are the things that Andre Moxie uses to measure his success.
