Presentation Title
Selling in the 21st Century

How To Sell Effectively To Consumers in 2017

What participants will learn from this presentation:

Next Level Sales Coaching helps both sales professionals and businesses dramatically increase their sales.  You see; most people think that in order to increase their sales, they should increase their advertising and marketing budget.  The challenge with doing that is it costs a lot of money, it doesn’t always work, and it still won’t solve the problem.  The key to dramatically increasing sales is to effectively convert the existing sales opportunities you have.  We teach people exactly how to do that through effective language, mindset training, and up-to-date sales coaching.

Presentation #2 Title
Stop “Selling” and Start “Helping”

Topic #2
Using Effective Questions and a Consultant’s Mindset

What participants will learn from this presentation:

Most salespeople go right into “selling mode” as soon as they walk in the door.  Yet, the one factor that means the most, whether or not there is even a sale to be made, is passed over.  If you want to learn how to sell effectively, you’ve got to follow a few simple guidelines when it comes to communication, effective questioning, and a helping attitude.  The old days of power closing, getting YES answers, and phony rapport building is over.  If you can master the aspects of selling in 2017, your sales will double and your income will soon do the same.
