I work in marketing for a technology company. I’ve been at this job for about 12 years and love it. I’ve had the opportunity to develop strategies, systems, and systems of my own, and my role is to find ways to improve the entire company or company culture.
This is a very common situation in any job. You have to constantly be improving yourself and the company, but you don’t have to be the most technical person around. It’s usually the people who don’t have a strong work ethic who do the hardest work. It’s a common misconception that there are only two types of people in the company. The first is the tech guy who’s constantly working, but he doesn’t necessarily need to be the most technical person around.
While I agree that it’s great to be the most technical person around, I think I’d rather be the tech guy who can be the most lazy, because then all of the other techs are in the situation of asking, “How can I improve our code? I know we should be using X, but I dont know how to code it better.
The second type of tech that we have to deal with are sales representatives. Usually, they are the “real” technical guys who have to be the most lazy. But the ones whose sole goal in life is to sell computers? I don’t know. They’re usually the ones who have no idea how to get information from people. Maybe they should take a break from selling computers, go somewhere where they don’t have to sell computers and get a real job.
This is what I think of when I hear the phrase “real tech sales guy”. They’re the ones who have a real idea of what they’re selling and how to sell it. They’re the ones who have the kind of technical knowledge that goes beyond just knowing the ins and outs of a salesperson’s tool. These are the ones that sell software and hardware to people all over the world. They have these skills because they have a real life.
Many people (including many software developers) are so busy selling their wares to people in other places that they forget what real life is all about. So they forget, for instance, that the real job is to be a mommy. In this case the real job is to work for Google. And Google has an actual product that sells software and hardware to people all over the world. Its a real product because people buy it.
I have been to many tech conventions and these conventions are all about how to sell your wares and make money. In many cases, the people at these conventions are software developers. They are all looking for ways to sell their wares on the convention floor. What they forget is that they have the real job. It’s not selling software and hardware but rather selling their wares to people all over the world.
To be honest, I’m actually not sure if that’s the case. At any rate, it makes sense because software and hardware aren’t something that can be sold. They are sold to people who would buy it for themselves. So if you want to make money selling your wares then I would recommend that you focus on selling software and hardware to people who don’t have the money to buy your wares.
It’s a tricky thing because software and hardware are the things that people buy, so you have to convince people to buy what you sell. I also think that selling to people who arent interested is a bad idea because it leads to a lot of people in their thirties and forties being “the tech guy” and thinking they are an important part of the IT industry.
Of course you can sell to people who are not interested. I have friends who are in their thirties and still sell to the same people, so it’s not impossible. But then, you have to sell to people who are interested. Which brings us to the next point.
