12 Films You MUST Watch, If You're In Sales!


12. Moneyball

By using this new method they are able to sign undervalued players that are full of potential, building a winning team that can compete at the highest level.

11. Tin Men

2 competing salespeople known for being high-level rivals in the world of high pressured sales go to extremes after crashing into each other with neither willing to take the blame.

10. Jerry Maguire

The film is full of brilliant sales quotes, passion, energy and sales action, it's a must-watch for salespeople out there. My personal favourite part of this film is the realisation of how valuable one single customer might be, compared to trying to sell to anyone and everyone.

9. Boiler Room

This film is often compared to Wall Street, following the life of a small-time stock broker trying to make it big. Ben Affleck's confidence and speeches are just awesome and similar to those you sometimes see from the top salespeople in a company. 

8. Wall Street

Gordon takes Bud under his wing showing that he must do anything to get to the top (which included illegal trading). Yes it's old-school, yes it's an old style sales approach, but it still is an awesome watch and some good core sales messages in there as well.

7. The Founder

The story of how McDonalds came to be is a surprising one, from milkshake salesperson to the man who took McDonalds and made it what it is today, this film is a MUST watch for anyone working in sales.

6. The Pursuit Of Happyness

This is the film the really inspire you to work hard, to work harder than anyone else can or does. After seeing a stockbroker pull up in a fancy car, he pushes himself to unbelievable limits to become one and provide for his family.

5. The Wolf Of Wall Street

This is a common favourite for many salespeople. Full of fast-paced selling, this highlights the energy needed to become super successful in sales (although should also highlight what happens if you sell un-ethically!).

4. Joy

Such a powerful and inspirational story of how someone had to fight through so much to achieve her dream and to turn her idea into one of the biggest businesses out there.

3. Death Of A Salesman

Salesman Willy Loman is in a crisis. He's about to lose his job, he can't pay his bills, and his sons Biff and Happy don't respect him and can't seem to live up to their potential. He wonders what went wrong and how he can make things up to his family.

2. Tommy Boy

Tommy Boy is a movie about the world’s most unlikely brake pad salesman. After the death of Tommy Boy Sr, the family business is in need of some major sales. In desperation, Tommy Boy is sent on the road to make the annual sales trip.

1. Glengarry Glen Ross

The most famous sales movie of them all, and yet I can guarantee so many salespeople out there will never have seen it! Most will know about A.B.C - Always Be Closing, well this is where that came from.


Hope You'll Enjoy, watching these movies!
