It took me a week to put this together. So, if these sales memes make you laugh, hit the share button and make my day 🙂

Part 1: Daily struggles of sales reps 

A sales rep’s daily life is full of challenges.

Be it dealing with difficult customers, endless prospecting, hitting monthly quotas, or other co-workers giving sales lectures to them.

Can you relate to these situation-based sales memes

1. Marketing v/s Sales – the eternal conflict)

Marketing vs Sales - funny sales meme

This sales meme represents a universal situation. Each quarter you and your team hit the quota, but there will always be marketing guys with Spreadsheets and 5-page explanations of how they achieved the revenue growth with their advanced BoFU, ToFU & MoFU conversions.  (Happy ranting in advance)

2. Revenue targets v/s cold calling

We all have faced it. It’s easier said than done. If you are hitting your numbers using just cold calling, congrats! You are a sales superstar.

3. Non-sales co-workers give you sales lectures

5. Monday Grind in sales feels like

Part 2: The sales pitch roller coaster

A sales pitch is no less than riding a roller coaster. One minute you’re on top of the world, celebrating a closed deal, and the next minute you’re plummeting toward rejection, clutching onto a single thread of hope.

6. When the prospect finally accepts your call after 3rd try

10. When the prospect is unattentive AF

Undivided attention is what a sales rep wants from you during the entire presentation. (apart from your money)

Part 3: Clients v/s Sales Reps

From  CEOs requesting software that reads minds to tech-challenged grandmas asking if the cloud comes with rain – a sales rep deals with it all.

11. When the prospect asks for a quick demo

Sometimes we spend weeks customizing a proposal based on the client’s ‘specific needs.’ Turns out, they just wanted the cheapest and most readily acceptable option all along.

12. When customers negotiate for 20 minutes straight

You internally scream while maintaining a professional smile “Certainly! The basic plan is a great starting point…”

13. Typical budget woes

Prospects often love everything about your product, except the price tag. They keep asking for discounts until the proposal becomes unsustainable, forcing us to politely walk away.

14. The typical “Friend-Zoning” client

We build a strong rapport with potential clients, attending industry events and offering free resources. Despite all our efforts, they keep stringing us along, expressing interest but never closing the deal. This “friend-zone” situation wastes valuable time and resources.

15. Bait and Switch technique to score a deal

If you are doing this for a while, give it a pause. 😁 We at SmartReach never support this type of selling practice by our sales reps. 

Part 4: Sales quotes gone wrong 

In sales quotes such as ‘Always Be Closing’, ‘fake it till you make it’ etc. are very common. But how can they go wrong in certain situations? Let’s find out.

16. “Fake it till you make it” in sales

Pushing for a close feels good, but skipping essential steps like building trust and value can lead to a turn-off for both parties.
