Assignment title Sales Planning and Operations

Purpose of this assignment

Selling is a key part of any successful business, and most people will find
that they need to use sales skills at some point in their working life – if only
to persuade or win an argument. For anyone who is interested in sales as a
professional career it pays to understand the basics of selling, to practice,
and plan. This unit will introduce learners to the theory of selling and sales
planning, and give them the opportunity to put their personal selling skills
into practice.
The unit starts with an overview of how personal selling fits within the
overall marketing strategy for a business. Learners will be taken through
the main stages of the selling process, and be expected to put them to use.
Once they are confident about the selling process, learners will investigate
the role and objectives of sales management. This is knowledge that can be
applied to a wide range of organisations.
Finally, learners will be able to start planning sales activity for a product or
service of their own choice – this is another valuable skill that is
transferable to many different situations learners may find themselves in as
they move into employment or higher education.
