Overview

Today's fashion retail world is fast paced and based on quick transactions-so how does the art of personal selling stand out among the sea of flashy advertisements and slick commercials? Students often feel that selling is something that magically happens, and they find themselves unprepared when they're on the job. But now, more than ever, the personal approach matters and can determine whether a product succeeds or fails. The Real World Guide to Fashion Selling & Management provides the essentials required for success in the industry: how salespeople define and locate their markets, the importance of developing and maintaining relationships with clients, techniques for top-notch sales presentations, basic professional dos and don'ts, dynamic "behind the label" success stories, and how to anticipate-not just keep up with-today's global marketplace. The roles and expectations of sales managers are also detailed, from setting goals and targets to leading a successful, competitive sales force. Far from being a dirty word, selling is essential. With this book, students will get real-world information they need to put their careers on the fast track.
