Sales is an evolving industry. No matter how good a salesperson you are, you won’t be making the big bucks if you’re stuck selling a defunct, redundant product. Here are the areas you should be searching in to get you a good payday.
Think Deliveroo, AirBNB, Facebook, Amazon, Honeywell. These companies connect small businesses with large customer bases, and since the rise of smart technology they’re being used more and more. A Market Place is essentially an online shopping centre – one big network through which a consumer can access many smaller businesses, acting as an intermediary between the two. Since the Covid-19 outbreak, online shopping has risen 52%, and it’s looking like that number will keep going up.
Amazon’s adopted the tagline Come and build the future with us, and we’re inclined to think they’re right in thinking that online shopping is the future.

Software as a Service (SaaS)
Software as a Service, colloquially known as SaaS, is a cloud-based system where instead of downloading software onto your device that you have to install, run, and regularly update, you access it through the internet, typically through a subscription.

SaaS products are popping up everywhere, in almost every industry. They’re a salesperson’s dream because they’re completely demo-driven and remote-based, allowing you to sell to and from anywhere in the world.
The typical progression for a SaaS salesperson is SDR, AE, BDM, then Sales Director.

Financial services are here to stay, and sales roles are some of the most sought-after within the industry. From Asset Management to Investments to Corporate Banking, the need for salespeople within Financial Services is on the up.
Whilst many people think the industry is driven by the economy, don’t forget that there are winners and losers in every economic position.
The financial services world has been hugely bolstered by the ever-present world of technology, due to which FinTech has seen a dramatic boost. The global FinTech market was valued at about $127.66 Billion in 2018, and is expected to grow to $309.98 Billion at an annual growth rate of 24.8% through 2022.
