You work in sales, so you need a sense of humour, right? I’ve lost count of the number of funny sales memes I’ve sent my sales team over the years.
They lighten the load in what is normally a pressurised environment, so anything we can do to get a laugh or to release the value is well worth it.
Finding quality sales memes is tough. So, I have trawled the internet, and I have gathered what I consider to be the best of the best. I’ve even categorised them for you into different headings.
Salespeople will get these funny sales memes; others may not unless you’ve worked in the industry.
Take your pick and have fun!
