Introduction to Sales Seminar

Seminar Outline:

One of the biggest challenges businesses face today is positioning their products and services for maximum marketability. In most industries, all the players have access to basically the same technology and resources; thus, the products they turn out are very similar in terms of features, benefits and pricing.

In such a climate, how does a sales rep get an edge? The best way to stay one up on the competition is to become proficient at selling value instead of price.

Our Introduction To Sales seminar is a two-day, hands-on class that will help you increase sales and profitability by teaching you how to understand the needs of the customer, and demonstrate to them the value of your product in meeting his need.

The course concentrates on the fundamentals of salesmanship, but it also goes well beyond traditional sales concepts. While your competitors may be focused on discounting to gain market share, we will show you how you can stay firm on price and still increase sales by convincing customers of the value you are offering them.

Introduction To Sales

Introduction To Sales uses fast-pace role-plays and interactive small group exercises to help you get real time, real life experience with your new sales skills. Our senior sales instructors, all of whom have built great careers in sales, will provide personal coaching and instant feedback to help you grow and learn.

You will even have the benefit of a unique evaluation tool to help understand your behavioral style, and that of your customer, as you work through the sales process.
