Sales Training Highlights
Choosing Your Market: Running for the Hills
A discussion of the participant’s current prospecting techniques kicks off this course. We’ll discuss what’s working and what isn’t in our first discussion. The strategic-thinking tool Lenses: Gaining Focus and Seeing New Perspectives from Business Training Works will then be used to examine current consumers through a number of lenses. The group will begin to define the kinds of clients they want to draw, those they don’t, and those who fall somewhere in between through their involvement in this exercise.
Understanding the Pipeline’s Flow: The Gold Rush
The most successful prospectors are those who are familiar with every facet of their sales funnel. Participants will build a pipeline model for the sales process’ prospecting phase as part of this course assignment. During this exercise, they will determine what needs to occur at each, the average amount of time people spend at each process stage and level.
How to Polish Your Sifting Pan and the Value of Prospecting
The following segment of the program examines prospecting-related data. Participants will examine their company’s hard data during this segment, including the proportion of recurring customers against new customers, customer attrition rates, inbound conversion rates, and outbound conversion rates. We will then discuss objectives relating to the information.
Important Pointers: Speaking, Trade Shows, and Networking
Most individuals prefer to buy from people they like and know if they have the option. The activities salespeople can take to expand their networks are the main topic of this program segment. We will discuss strategies for expanding a virtual network, starting with Linkedin and other digital tools. Next, we’ll talk about tried-and-true networking strategies like going to trade fairs, joining organizations for your industry, giving speeches at events, etc. Participants in this course component will also discover influencers in their network that could aid them in expanding their clientele and creating a strategy to take advantage of those relationships.
Recovering Lost Accounts using That’s My Gold
Gold left unattended is easily taken. Likewise, consumers that we don’t pay enough attention to will frequently be “stolen” by other businesses. The program’s customer retention section examines strategies for recovering lost accounts and lowering attrition in the future. Teams of participants will decide on specific steps that could help them win back some of the clients they may have lost over time.
Mining Hard Rock: Using the Phone
Cold calling is not generally favored, although it can occasionally be required to break new ground. The program’s dos and don’ts are covered in this section on utilizing the telephone as a tool for marketing and sales. We’ll concentrate primarily on language for initiating calls, developing rapport, and requesting authorization to contact you further in this last section of the course.
