Selling means the transfer of ownership of goods or services to a buyer in exchange for money. Selling may be personal or impersonal. Personal selling is a highly distinctive word. It refers to oral face to face interaction or conversation between a sales representative and prospective customer for the purpose of making sales. It is a two-way form of communication that gives marketers the greatest freedom to adjust a message to satisfy customers information needs.



“Personal selling is an oral representation of selling through discussion with one or more probable buyers.”

-American Marketing Association

“Personal selling consists of contacting prospective buyers personally.”

-Richard Buskirk

  2. It involves personal touch between buyer and seller.
