    Do Women Have an Edge in Sales?

    Do women produce more sales than men? Do they have an advantage? In retail? In B2B? (business to business)

    Having sale ability is another matter entirely, and a man who has more sales ability than a woman will still do better. But all other things being equal, a young woman in particular definitely has an edge in my experience.

    Re: Do Women Have an Edge in Sales?

    Depends on too many things --- what's being sold, the people it's being sold to, the "selling style" of the men or women involved...

    ...and honestly, who cares?

    Not really, a woman may not be taken as seriously. They do have an edge in some kind of sales. You are more likely to stop if a woman approaches you on the street than if a man appraches you. If you want people to get a massage or go to the bar, then it is a massive advantage being a woman.

    A woman is at a distinct disadvantage as a salesperson, unless you count sex. Undereducated, less professional, and less likely to "relate". Plus one bitch-out on the rag and there goes a client forever.

    Anyone notice how a lot of the pharmaceutical sales reps are incredibly hot women.
    Yea, boobies have an advantage.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Depends on what they look like.

    I have a chick working for me, that has a nice set of 36DD's, a bubbly personality, isn't afraid to showoff and she's a very successful sales person. She's worth every nickel of that 5% I give her sexy ass.

    In medical sales they do very good if they are good looking

    But you also see very few car saleswomen.

    Production versus advantage are two different things.

    Production varies.....but advantage to women.
