There are so many types of meeting whether it is through a webcam or even if it is the initial meeting. If you do not know the clients yet then you are going to need business cards.

Wearing the proper attire can be important in a few different ways. Some older fashioned business men prefer that if you are younger then your attire should be a bit more modest. If you show up in the top brands than it can be offensive. For the first meeting you should wear a simple suit with a basic solid color button down shirt. As for socks nothing too crazy with designs. The goal of this is to sell the product and not try and boast by showing up in over the top attire.
Sales can be confusing since it is always evolving depending on the types of people you meet with. Meetings evolve and can turn bad before you know it so do some backround research on the group of people you are going to be meeting with. If your meeting is international then it is important to do research on the etiquette of doing business in that country.
