How to make sales by making your customer successful
What is the course about?
Sales professionals must articulate how their company can deliver business value to their customers. It sounds simple, but in practice there are formidable barriers to understanding the customer's needs and transforming often hazy and incomplete ideas into a plan that will give decision-makers the confidence to invest.
This workshop gives you a clear, structured approach that will ensure you discover what you need to know and then, like magic, explicitly align your interests with your customer. It then shows how to use a highly persuasive and entirely non-confrontational method to convince customers why they should trust your company to help them.
The workshop is highly interactive and provides extensive opportunities to practise the new skills in exercises and role-play.
Who should attend?
- Sales professionals
- Business Leaders
- Consultants who want to sell more by earning trust and respect
