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!
Need to motivate your sales team (or yourself)? Share these memes with someone who could use an extra push!
Working in sales is challenging, but don’t be too hard on yourself. You are worthy!
Just laugh along, even if the joke isn’t funny.
Laughing at that lousy joke might actually pay off!
Even if you’re struggling now, you can still earn your place as the team’s top salesperson.
Everybody has those days. Just try not to have them too often.
Every level of the sales pipeline matters, from prospecting to closing the sale. Here are some memes that every salesperson can relate to:
Take a deep breath and give the answer again. Maybe it’ll click this time.
It’s never too late to get back on track toward achieving your sales target.
Sometimes, a sale is just not meant to be.
And other times, the prospect is ready to move forward!
Sometimes, you have to hear a bunch of no’s before you finally get a yes.
Whether you’re a brand-new salesperson or a seasoned pro, you’ll relate to these memes about salespeople:
Staring might work for Stanley, but it probably won’t work for you.
There’s persistence in your sales follow up, and then there’s being frighteningly pushy.
And they involve intense LinkedIn searching and aggressively friendly direct messages.
It’s never too late to make another sale!
It’s kind of true, though…
Sales managers have a lot on their plates. Sales team leadership is tough. They need to be a great sales coach and they need to be able to offer the best sales training for the team. That’s why we need memes.
Let’s face it. Holiday breaks and sales jobs are kind of like oil and water.
We all went through this in 2020, and we’re better sales managers for it!
A great sales manager gets everyone pumped up and ready to fight…er, sell.
Being a manager means sending a lot of emails…and often not getting a prompt response.
Once you’ve hired a new rep, it’s time to get down to business.
There’s nothing like a sales contest to get your team motivated. Here are some memes to get them pumped up!
Remember, you must strike a balance between a stretch goal and an impossible one.
Don’t get so competitive that you rush through your sales pitch and forget the details!
When a contest’s almost over, every lead counts.
There’s nothing like offering a bonus to get people excited about a contest.
Celebrate when you pass your target, but don’t get complacent — someone else might be coming for you!
Inside sales jobs are more common than ever after the pandemic. If you and your team have been making more remote sales lately, you’ll likely relate to these inside sales memes:
Before you drop your smile and relax, make sure you’ve officially ended the Zoom.
Always start the day swinging.
Sometimes, those cold calls can work!
It might take months, but all your calls and sales emails will pay off and lead to a great commission check.
If someone isn’t responding, don’t get hung up on them. Keep moving forward and start working on new leads.
We all know how stressful the end of the month or the end of the quarter can be. Use these memes to help lighten the mood!
The end of the quarter means that it’s go time.
The niceness comes back at the first of the month. But for now, it’s time to WORK!
Don’t let jealousy get you down!
Take a break if you need, but don’t quit!
Push to the end of the month, and you can celebrate your wins with your team.
Everyone’s been around “that” person. Here are some funny memes that represent everybody’s least favourite salesperson:
The sooner you learn the difference, the better.
If you’re constantly dodging cold calls, you’re never going to make it as a salesperson.
Rejection is part of the job. It hurts, but there’s no avoiding it.
If you bombard your prospects with giant walls of text (or 20 minutes of nonstop talking), you’ll lose them.
The same goes for shouting (literally or figuratively) at them. You’re excited, but you might make the wrong impression if you come on too strong.
Every sales team needs goals to stay focused and productive. If your team has been falling short of their goals recently or just needs an extra push, these memes can help:
Nothing compares to hitting your monthly or quarterly target.
If you need help motivating your team to reach their sales goals, get them thinking about what they can buy with their commission.
The more leads you generate, the more opportunities you have to reach your sales goals.
Remember, rejection is part of the job. Be willing to keep going!
It really does take a village to achieve your sales goals. Don’t write any department off.
Leads are the lifeblood of any effective sales team. That’s why there are tons of sales lead memes like these floating around on the internet:
Maybe someone wasn’t ready to buy a few months ago, but they might be now!
Sometimes, it takes a while to find new leads, but I promise they’re out there!
The better you are at building connections, the easier it is to generate leads and move people through the sales pipeline.
You can always use another lead, right?
It might feel like the leads have dried up, but more will be coming before you know it.
Nothing compares to that feeling of finally closing a deal. You need to ask for the sale first.
Don’t worry if someone wants to get more quotes. If you’re offering the best option, they’ll be back.
Even if you don’t hear from someone for a while, that doesn’t mean they’ve forgotten about you.
When you’re struggling to close and thinking about giving up, remember how it feels to get that big commission at the end of the month.
Some months are better than others. If you don’t earn a hefty commission one month, the next month might be your time!
Nod along, smile, and start planning your next pitch in your head.
Teamwork makes the dream work! These memes will remind you of how lucky you are to have your sales team behind you:
Everyone on your team plays a role in keeping the company running smoothly. Don’t take anyone for granted!
Even the longest sales meeting has to come to an end eventually…right?
Sales team training is part of the job, but the real learning comes from making calls, delivering pitches, and meeting with prospects face-to-face.
Everyone needs a dance partner on their team!
Working in sales is tough. If you have great people on your team, though, it’s a lot easier.
It doesn’t matter if you’re trying to get your team motivated for an upcoming contest or just need a laugh to lighten the mood on a tough
day. These sales memes can help.
