Prospecting as pollination?

bee feeding at a flowerI have a confession to make, although I LOVE a good analogy, I’m sick and tired of “hunter” and “farmer” being used to describe sales.

So I’m going to use pollination instead!

“Pollination is the act of transferring pollen grains from the male anther of a flower to the female stigma.” according to the US Forest Service

What does that have to do with prospecting?

I’d say prospecting pollination could be translated to “the act of transferring new idea grains from the salesperson to the prospect.”
