The competition was launched ahead of the National Sales Awards 2012 and asked people to tweet their best sales tips, with the best 140-word answer receiving £1,000.
Many useful hints and tips were provided, but the best – judged by former England rugby captain Lawrence Dallaglio, now a sales director for Serco – was by Jason Hart, a sales executive at Saga.
His tweet was: 'It's important to be enthusiastic, listen, understand the customer's needs and wants and to build a relationship with that customer.'
Mr Hart's tweet beat off stiff competition from a number of valid and useful pieces of advice, and spoke of his delight at being recognised, as well as receiving £1,000.
"It's great to see something like the guide published to share ideas and best practice within the industry. I'm really excited to have won the competition, especially as it's been judged by Lawrence Dallaglio!" he added.
The other top tips included 'Always learn about your customers' hobbies. That way one can always start a conversation with some friendly banter and build a dialogue' and 'Under Promise, Over Deliver. Ensure you keep your customers happy by exceeding their expectations.'
Mr Hart will be honoured at this year's National Sales Awards gala dinner and awards ceremony will be held at in London at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Tuesday November 6th.
