disclaimer that i'm well aware i don't have the answers to this and could be wrong - but i just don't think sales people are meant to be influencers. look at grant cardone for god sakes or collin cadmus offering fucking crypto advice on a linkedin poll. hard pass.

there's got to be a middle ground somewhere - but when corp has built a majority of this thing as satire, that should tell you a lot.

you created the platform i'm typing on so you can call yourself whatever you want but i think a lot of people would define you as a sales influencer yeah.

Most will make a quick buck and disappear IMO.


They are just people with popular opinions and the word influencer is only attached to them because that's what they want to be seen as. 

You can like what someone has to say without them influencing you and drinking their coolaid.

I think its worth pointing out that Grant Cardone started as a sales influencer.

Not in the household name sense. But they can definitely create a personal brand to make a comfortable living. A certain bro comes to mind for that…

I think a great deal of being an influencer is being an entertainer.  You're providing a distraction which might be more or less guised as professional development. 

If you're a great salesperson it may very well be more profitable to be out selling. 

In my mind I don't want to be famous necessarily as a great sales person because of the connotations that I'm exercising some control over the people I'm selling to.  I want those people to think buying from me is for other reasons than my sales savvy.

I mean yes and no. Yes in that there are already sales influencers who are doing great and connecting people and they're blowing up... in the sales community. 

But not the way that Instagram influencers or TikTok influencers blow up, no.
