Importance of salesmanship
Before the Industrial Revolution, the goods were purchased in small quantities. They are sold in the local market without any problem. After the Industrial Revolution, the position is entirely changed. The goods are purchased in large scale.

There is a keen competition among the producers of the goods. Each manufacturer tries to outbid other from the market. In order to survive in the market, the manufacturers must know the promotional strategy of the market. Selling is no more if or miss business. It is an art of influencing people, persuading them to purchase the product.

With the revolution in the means of transport, the importance of sales function has further increased. Goods are produced not only for selling in the home market but also in different other countries. There too, the manufacturers face stiff competition.

The success of business now depends as to how well the goods are sold in the market. Salesmanship can be defined as the art of personal persuasion employed to induce others to buy. In other words, according to Prof. Whitehead,"Salesmanship is the art of so presenting an offer that the prospects appreciate the need for it and a mutually satisfactory sale follows."

It is true that none of the MBA programs teach you salesmanship. The reason may lie in the fact that salesmanship cannot be taught. It is something you learn by doing it.
