If you want to be a successful salesperson, you will need to be good at time management. According to a new study, most sales representatives spend less time on selling and more time on conducting activities. This study is based on over 720 sales representatives who were interviewed and/or surveyed. About 64.8% of their time is devoted to activities which don't generate any revenue while merely 35.2% of their time is spent on selling-based activities. Field sales representatives devote 3.1% extra time than inside sales representatives to selling activities.
