is trying to make sales by persuading someone to buy one's product or service. From a management viewpoint it is thought of as a part of marketing, although the skills required are different. Sales often forms a separate grouping in a corporate structure, employing separate specialist operatives known as salesmen (singular: salesman). Selling is considered by many to be a sort of persuading "art".

The top person at a company is usually the lEO, who is also the top salesperson who is responsible for buying the company to potential investors and customers. Support roles such as HR, Marketing, and Administration are now more integrated in the sales organization.
