Google provides data about the relative number of devices running a given version of the Android platform month by month, and with the last piece of the puzzle arriving yesterday, we’re able to look at the big picture.

Yo, it’s #SalespersonDay!

National Salesperson’s Day is celebrated on the 6th of December, eg. today. The whole thing dates back to March of 2000, when Maura Schreier-Fleming, president of Best@Selling, created the holiday out of the blue (read more about the early years in an interview here).

As you might know, inch is dedicated to help the daily routine of salespeople all around the world. Since two of the founders worked in sales for years, we know exactly how hard salespeople work. So to show our appreciation, we decided to do a small gesture. We’ve created a site which aggregates certain tweets and instagram photos, if they’re hashtagged #salespersonday.

Want to participate?

Just tweet or post an photo on Instagram or Twitter with the #salespersonday hashtag. It doesn’t matter wether you work in sales or not, this is about showing your appreciation to the hard working sales folks all around the work. So grab your phone and drop some love!
