Skills you’ll gain from being a Star Trader

Earning extra cash isn’t the only benefit of being a Star Trader. Read on to find out more about what skills you can gain on your trader journey.

 

You probably already know most of the perks of being a Star Trader – working on your own terms, being your own boss, and best of all, earning extra cash. There are also other benefits that aren’t immediately obvious, though. When you become a Star Trader, you’ll pick up a whole new skillset as you hustle your way through the trader tiers.

 

Don’t force it

No-one likes a pushy salesperson. If your customers see you as friendly and relatable, they will feel more at ease, and you’re likely to enjoy more success with your activations. The more customers you get, the more you’ll be able to polish your people skills.

 

Sell, sell, sell

Of course, a huge part of being a successful Star Trader is the ability to sell. As you travel through your trader journey, you’ll figure out what selling skills work best for you and your customers. Every trader’s story varies, so different tactics will work for different people. For example, if you’re a student Star Trader, you might dish out sims to your mates. If you’re a shopkeeper, you might keep a point-of-sale display at your till to attract potential customers.

 

Learn to listen

As your Star Trader career advances, you’ll learn to listen to your customers’ wants and needs to provide the best result. Don’t be tempted to sell them a sim that won’t work for them. Listen to what they need, and find a solution that suits you both.
