7. Relationship Selling vs. Traditional Methods: Definition and Purpose
Promoting is an important method of communicating the benefits of a product or service.

Rapid changes in technology can help salespersons streamline their jobs and automate some routine functions. Social media, mobile devices, new applications, and effectively using ''Big Data'' can increase sales.
