Sharpening Selling Skills and Effective Territory Management

Sharpening Selling Skills and Effective Territory Management

Effective sales people are not born; effective sales professional must master techniques to achieve success. All sales professionals need to use a systematic process to achieve maximum potential.

Selling, in the old days, was largely an act of personal heroism. The key to successful selling knew the products and the customers. But this approach has little to do with the way sales are made in today’s real world. Today’s customers buy benefits, not products; they demand solutions which don’t come in a box. They must be designed, fashioned to meet the customer’s specific needs.

Making such sales takes a lot more than personal charisma. Today’s selling is a step by step process, which starts from ‘Finding Potential Buyers’ but not ends only at ‘Successfully Selling the Product’ but ‘Proper Following up on a Sale’ and lot more.

This training offers a quick yet comprehensive guide to the techniques of effective selling, prospecting, getting on the customer’s wavelength, dealing with objections, negotiation, closing the sale, and more.
