Dear [Hiring Manager’s Name],

In response to the posting for a Sales Manager at Epic Scope Technology, I am writing to demonstrate my interest in this position since I believe I have the necessary expertise and qualifications. Based on my many years in sales, marketing, management, and customer service, I am proficient and competent in my skills and knowledge.

As the previous Director of Sales at LT Design, I have had experience in recruiting, training, and developing my sales team nationally. I understand what it takes to manage a team, develop strong relationships with clients, efficiently meet sales quota, and maintain a vibrant and ambitious attitude as a representative for my company.

For the past 3 years as the Director of Sales, I persistently exceeded quotas and generated sales of at least $120,000 per fiscal quarter. I am confident in my abilities to do the same and perform well for Epic Scope Technology. I’ve also managed a sales team and have trained each of them to be a motivated sales representative for my company. I’ve successfully taught strategic sales and operations to my team, applying effective sales tactics that have proven to exceed quotas. With this managerial background, I can certainly achieve the same as a Sales Manager for Epic Scope Technology.

I understand Epic Scope Technology is growing rapidly in the tech industry, and you have recently merged with Slackpot Productions Inc, which has a huge focus in both design and technology. I have been in the product design industry for many years and understand both fields very well. With my industrial knowledge in both design and technology, I can easily and effectively meet sales objectives for Epic Scope Technology.

It is with great interest and enthusiasm that I apply to this position. With my strong work ethic and pro-activeness, I believe I can contribute a lot to Epic Scope Technology. Both my sales and managerial background, in addition to my industrial knowledge, makes me the perfect fit for this job.

Thank you for your time and consideration. I sincerely hope you will allow me the opportunity to prove my skills and experience through an interview. I look forward to hearing from you.
