And I am going to list down some skills which can get you results for your company or your own business.
Sales / Deal Closing
Every Business needs revenue to operate.
It doesn’t matter how good your products are for the market.
Well, yes, the product is important. But nothing will help if you won’t be able to take that product out of your premises and sell it to your customers.
Every company requires people who can do sales and generate revenue for them.

This is one of the top skills to learn for anyone in their career. It has always been in demand and always will be because who doesn’t want more revenue in business.
How to learn to sell or become a Closer?
To learn how to sell, you don’t need to join any institutes or just learn from books or read different content. Well, yes, these things will help.
But you need to develop an attitude before everything else. A problem-solving attitude, If you want to sell.
Always remember one thing, “People don’t like to be sold, they like to Buy” – A quote by Jeffery Gitomer.
Even if you have the best product in the market, it won’t sell until it solves your customer’s problem. Learn to Analyze how you can solve your customer’s problem, provide the resulting analytics and sales will automatically happen.
The most important part of learning this skill is, don’t call yourself a salesperson.
Treat yourself as a closer (person who closes deals). This is also a very positive and must have-attitude that one requires.
Why? Well, if you treat yourself as a salesperson, your priority will be selling and making money. The customers are smart and they can sense what you care most.
But a closer doesn’t think that way. A closer always prioritizes its customers. A closer always focuses on how to help, not how to sell. And once you develop that attitude, it will result in the form of sales for you.
This is not a one night process to develop this kind of attitude. It will take time.
It gets better deal after deal.
Practice this for a few weeks and let me know how it works for you.
The times have changed when people used to distribute flyers or ads in newspapers or on TV or radio.
These mediums are still used for marketing when your product is generic.
For example, products like toothpaste, candy, pen or groceries, or any other generic items which are almost used by everyone. These FMCG (Fast-moving consumer goods) products are simple, low priced, and attract a lot of repeat buyers. For these products, you need a big audience regardless of what they like or what they do.
But for high-end products where people need more information, and you need to target specific audiences. You need to generate leads, and to generate leads, companies prefer digital marketing.
For example, if you are selling a high-end B2B or enterprise service. Not everyone might be interested in or in need of that product. So there you can use digital marketing by targeting only those people who are already searching for these products.

What is copywriting? Let’s understand that first.
Many people think of it as some legal term and mistaken it as copyrights, but it is not.
A Copy- also called a Sales Copy, is anything in the form of written text that gives you information and engages you with its product.
In simple words, a copy can be any piece of written text content that convinces or encourages your readers to purchase without even having a 1-to-1 meeting or a call. A copy is nothing but the content that makes the sales for you.
It can be in the form of an advertisement or can be just a simple brand awareness post. A copy intends to persuade its reader to take any particular action.
An email can be a copy, a piece of content can be a copy, a social media post can be a copy, a brochure can be a copy as well.
In today’s world of digital marketing, many businesses opt for sales copies to do sales for them.
A well-written copy can be advertised or shared on different platforms to attract multiple prospects in a short period of time. Not only today, but it will also be one of the most in-demand skills for the future for any B2B service company.
It not only generates leads but also results in revenue sometimes if written or explained. And even if it creates nothing, then still it creates brand awareness.

Also, if you want to learn copywriting then you need to learn about content writing and the process behind it first.

But imagine giving digital lessons where you can reach everybody in the world with the help of the internet. You can choose as many students as possible even in a single session.
You can even record sessions and upload them on learning management systems where people can access your courses.
