Be Part of the Sales Evolution & Get Ready to Build Some New Numbers!
Is it harder to get in front of a prospect or achieving your new business numbers? As buyers have stopped answering their phones, or responding to emails, new techniques must emerge. Research shows that packaging buyers have completed over 57% of the purchase process before ever meeting with a salesperson! This shift in the buying process requires a relative shift from the traditional sales approach we’ve used for decades. A shift that is founded on proven trust-building methods yet evolved for the modern world.
This course was created, and is taught by, someone that has spent over two decades in the trenches alongside your salespeople. It was designed to build upon your existing sales strategy, allowing continuity with current systems, while elevating results.
- Improved conversion percentage from prospect to customer
- Shortened sales cycles
- True market differentiation
- Break out of the commodity trap
- Customer loyalty, retention and growth
Your salespeople will also learn the eight stages of a sales process. They will walk away with the ability to self-identify where they’re knocking it out of the park and where they need to put in the work to significantly lift their individual results.Research conducted by RingLead shows 15% of a sales reps time is spent simply leaving voicemails. This research showed over 80% of calls go to voicemail and 90% of these are never returned. According to Inside Sales the average voicemail response rate is 4.8%
