Selling is the process of helping someone see the value in a product or service they might otherwise not have seen. Although there is no best way to sell there are certain steps which if executed in a methodical process will attract the right prospects, qualify, convert and retain them as customers and dramatically increase your potential for success.
This hands-on, exercise driven program teaches skills that boost sales and profitability through an increased understanding and implementation of the need-satisfaction sales process. Participants learn how to concentrate their focus on each client’s particular situation, needs, vision, the internal staff who makes all of this and other opportunities possible to increase business. The key is in determining how the product or service will provide meaningful value to a client even in a competitive or saturated market.
The ISM Course Director will take each participant through the step-by-step sales process critical to the pre-approach, approach and after sales service. This will be done through a highly charged, enjoyable 3 day course involving lectures, classroom exercises, role-plays, discussions and extensive accompanying course-notes (delegates are also expected to take their own personal extensive notes).
By all means, bring your pencil case, and yes, there will be handouts, but there will be a lot more discourse, debate, improvisation, role play, technology, practice and group dynamics. The training will be conducted in a friendly, fun atmosphere, which not only allows for different learning styles, but respects each delegate as an individual and ensures each one is challenged and derives maximum benefit from the course. Our aim is that you will be highly stimulated and encouraged to rethink.
