Joseph McDonald Sales Professional
Motivated and enthusiastic sales professional with a pleasant outlook and ability to sell with conviction. I have so far worked on numerous projects and made them a success. The reason for my success as a sales professional is that I truly believe in the products that I sell. Once you believe in something, convincing others is not a difficult task. However, I have learnt a great deal from my peers and customers and apply this knowledge to my work. Selling products requires more than just selling power. We need to analyze the market, assess customers, review products and find customers who will prove to be an asset. All this requires a lot of effort and consistency.

Green's Farm Products
Sales Professional (Feb 2005 to May 2013) 8 Years & 3 Months
• Responsible for making daily sales to shops, grocers and super markets. • My daily goal was to sell the produce that was brought in. I maintained good relations with all the clients in order to sell all the produce as freshness and expiration of every product was extremely short and we needed daily sales to avoid any spoils. • I did a lot of study on potential market for farm products as there are several areas where people do not cook at home. • I found family neighborhood grocers and negotiated deals with them. I also found many delivery services to buy fruits and dairy products from us and fixed rates with them.
