Michael Scott: The posterboy of personal Selling

Image result for michael scott

Michael Scott, the regional manager of the fictional Dunder Mifflin paper company from NBC’s “The Office”, may be one of the greatest examples of how to sell with a personal touch. In the show we are able to get glimpses of Michael’s past as the company’s greatest salesman. In multiple episodes Michael is brought into make big sales. The style with which he sells leads to him landing major clients which may be why Scranton was constantly the most successful branch of the company. In order to make sales in a dying paper business with large suppliers offering lower prices the only Dunder Mifflin relied on it’s customer service and Michael Scott while selling is the embodiment of the customer service. Michael’s selling style focuses heavily on making it personal, in the season 5 episode “Prince Family Paper” Michael says “business is always personal, it’s the most personal thing in the world.” and this exactly the attitude with which Michael approaches every sale. We are able to see him step down from his role of manager to help out the sales team a few times but there are two episodes that really show Michael’s selling process and those are the season 2 episode “the client” and the season 4 episode “money”.  In “the client” Michael and Jan are tasked with attempting to land an entire county as a client, Jan wants to get straight into business but Michael takes it slower and enjoys dinner while making jokes and really getting to know the client and establish a personal relationship before getting into business. After some time Michael finally gets to business and is able to use his growing up in the county and says that the discount suppliers undercut smaller businesses like Dunder MIfflin until they’re out of business and then jack up the prices and thanks to the personal relationship established with the client, he lands the sale. In “money” Michael takes a job at night selling weight loss medication and here we see Michael once again establishing personal relationships rather than reading from the script hes given. Michael’s personal touch in sales allows him to land sales. By making sales personal rather than just another business transaction allows the salesman to distinguish themselves from the rest and make sales because people enjoy human interaction.
