Jun 12, 2013 The Sales Bell A long, long time ago, the ringing of a ships bell would have been proudly struck to mark the passage of a successful watch completed aboard a ship. Today, this aged old tradition has been revived by the Corporate world anxious to recognise when successful sales / contracts are achieved. It works like this; Companies want the world or at least the rest of the office to know when one of their employees has a successful sale. Here's how it works; Rule One: The bell cannot be struck unless a properly executed and signed contract is hand. Rule Two: The bell must only be struck by the person who made the sale - not the boss, not the assistant. Rule Three: No do-overs. Strike strong and well the first time (be proud of your achievement ). Rule Five: How many strikes? Set your own guidelines for your sales team eg: $1,000 to $9,999 - One strike $10,000 to $99,999 - Two strikes $100,000 and above - Ring until your arm muscles fail. Reasons to ring the sales bell: New Client A Sale Speech New born arrival Someone is leaving Awards Friday drinks the list goes one… Besides being a great conversation starter, the ships bell is a simple and historic instrument for the modern day office, loaded with positive energy!
