About

Ask your salesteam these questions: 1. How many prospects in your pipeline will call you back and do business with you if you stop calling them? 2. Do you need to sell to your prospects more than they need to buy from you? Many business owners and leaders believe that sales training courses don’t work. And since many of them are referring to single, quick-fix events—they’re right! That kind of short-term training does not produce lasting results. However, Sandler’s sales training programs do work. That’s because we’ve built our training programs around the concepts of incremental growth and change over time. We then support our sales training with repetition, reinforcement, coaching and accountability. We realize that salespeople aren’t likely to implement a particular strategy or tactic unless it’s part of a larger behavioral plan. However, a behavioral plan needs to be supported by the appropriate attitude and outlook. That’s why our sales training courses address all three areas necessary for success—attitude, behavior and technique. That’s the Sandler difference! Whether or not we decide to do business together, I am confident our call will be full of insights and actionable steps that can help you grow your business. If your sales team is experiencing: • Painfully long selling cycles • Frustration with sales pipelines that don't deliver positive results • Prospects that demand too much • Overall margins getting tighter and tighter Call me now - 484-534-3034
