1. What does a B2B Sales Rep work ? 

A B2B (business-to-business) sales representative is responsible for selling products or services from one business to another. Their primary role involves fostering relationships with potential clients, understanding their needs, and guiding them through the sales process. 

Their responsibilities encompass making sales calls, arranging pitch meetings with prospective clients, conducting product demos, overseeing client relations, and various other tasks integral to the B2B sales journey. 

2. Types of B2B Sales Reps:

B2B sales reps are further divided into two types that require different skill sets: 

Inside sales reps: Inside sales representatives usually reach and talk to business customers remotely through methods like cold-calling, video conferencing, and email messaging. 

Skilled inside sales representatives can secure deals without direct in-person interaction with the client, or at the very least, they can effectively prepare the groundwork for an outside sales rep to finalize the transaction. 

Outside Sales Reps: Typically found in the field, these reps engage directly with business customers and decision makers through face to face interactions. Their activities often involve conducting meetings with individual companies or presenting demonstrations at trade events.
