Customer Service Seminar
05/19/2017

08:30 am - 04:30 pm

There are two kinds of buyers out there.

Transaction buyers look at your company as just another vendor. They’ll buy from you on price or convenience. When a lower price or more convenient process comes along, they’re history.

Relationship buyers view your business as an organization they can trust. They buy from you because you consistently overdeliver on service. Relationship buyers purchase more frequently and in larger amounts than transactional buyers.

As the person in charge of customer service, it’s your job to help your reps create relationship customers.

Sales Seminar
10/11/2017

08:30 am - 04:30 pm

Today's economic conditions are creating a more competitive and stressful marketplace. Many salespeople will find it more difficult to make appointments, get sales and stay positive, inevitably causing disengagement. Studies have shown engaged sales people produce more revenue than those who are disengaged. In order to differentiate yourself from the competitors you need to be unique, with exciting approaches to solving buyers' problems.

Most sales training focuses on product knowledge instead of improving performance in what salespeople actually say and do when they are in direct contact with customers and prospects.
