3 Ways to Celebrate National Salesperson Day

Are you ready to celebrate your salespeople? National Salesperson Day is coming up! Each year, on the first Friday of March, salespeople are celebrated and recognized for the value they bring to their organization. Salespeople are tremendous resources with a deep understanding of what they are selling. They stay up to date with the latest offerings so that they can consult customers and connect them to the best solution.

Being a rockstar salesperson is not about clocking in at a nine-to-five, it’s a lifestyle! Here at Velocify, we understand and appreciate the grind all year long–I mean, our salespeople sell to salespeople! So make sure to take some time to celebrate the sales professionals in your life. Here are a few fresh ideas:

Pay it forward.

One of the best ways to show you care or that you’re grateful is to pay it forward. If you’re thinking about showing appreciation on National Salesperson Day, it’s likely a salesperson has helped you in someway. Whether it was a fellow teammate who helped you close a deal or a friend who referred you to an awesome new job, think of how you can return the favor. The benefits of paying it forward go beyond the help you’re providing now; who knows when your salesperson might think of you down the line and offer to return the favor. What are some of the best ways to pay it forward on National Salesperson Day? Here are a few ideas:

1. Provide a referral or make an important introduction;
2. Give the gift of learning
3. Offer to help.

Give a shoutout!

Ever wonder why leaderboards are so effective? People like working hard to achieve the satisfaction that comes with earning a spot at the top. National Salesperson Day is no different—it’s just a day where all salespeople are at the top of the leaderboard, for that 24-hour period. Take advantage and let all your favorite salespeople soak in the glory by giving them a shoutout. But how you ask? Here are some ideas:

1. Mention their hard work in a social media post;
2. Congratulate them in a team or company email;
3. Acknowledge them through an awards/recognition program.

Just say it!

For some of the salespeople you want to thank, you might just want to keep it simple. Just saying ‘thank you’ can go a long way—and you can deliver the message via handwritten note, email, phone, or face-to-face. If you opt for email, the good news is that you can include some helpful resources in your message (and maybe even crack a smile with meme). See the example below and keep reading for fresh sales tip ideas to include in your National Salesperson Day ‘thank you’ email.
