Great sales people: nature or nurture?

According to Forbes magazine, 55% of salespeople lack basic sales skills. This is not only limited to non-sales personnel. Most still struggle with basic skills like handle rejection, identifying and qualifying customer profiles and preparing for sales presentations. In our evolving socially-distanced world, being able to sell and remain relevant is highly valued.

Course Description

The old model of sales where we inundate prospects with cold emails and brochures in the hopes they buy is starting to become irrelevant.

Customers seek a connection in a socially-distanced world and want to buy from people they trust.

“Sell With Stories” is a story-based selling course that equips sales teams with modern mindsets and skills to build rapport, pave the way for referral business and develop a strong digital social selling presence.

The workshop helps participants enhance their existing approach to sales:
  • Adopt the mindset of a top sales performer

  • Audit your current sales process and approach to prospects

  • Differentiation strategies to cut through the noise and stand out among competition

  • Proven pitching techniques that have secured million-dollar business

  • Going social: leveraging Linkedin to develop qualified prospects that want to buy

Learning Outcomes

  • Confidently pre-empt and handle objections before they surface

  • Leverage digital tools to sell as or more effectively virtually than physically

  • Develop conversations for high-ticket sales that are less focused on price

  • Adopting an ‘always on’ sales mindset that keeps opportunities coming through the door

  • Apply storytelling techniques to more effectively convince and close clients

  • Develop a magnetic Linkedin profile to generate new opportunities

  • Build an influential identity to stand out in a sea of competition

“ I had no proper sales process. The coaching has helped me
close a $15,000 PR project in my first month and a half with them. The scripts, the thought process just clicked and they guided me throughout. They are damn good!”

CHRISTEL GOH

FOUNDER, GROW PR

“ I’ve managed to hit my Q4 2020 goals in just the first month (>$75,000) though only starting the business during CoVid. They helped shape my story for sales in ways I couldn’t do on my own.”

Who can benefit from sales training?

If you need to persuade people and fulfil targets without being pushy, you can benefit from attending a sales storytelling course. This means that training can be suitable for a variety of roles that interact with people but also need to sell products or services.

What can I expect to learn in a sales training course?

Every effective sales person has in their ‘utility belt’ a mix bag of soft-skills and know-how to generate pipeline and convert more clients. We focus on teaching the nuanced aspects of persuasion using story as well as strategies to pitch for high-ticket work. Attendees can also benefit from learning how to sell on social platforms like Linkedin when socially distanced.

 Will training work if I am an introvert?

Some of the best performing sales people are introverted and shy.  Other communication channels that work well but are most often overlooked include emails and texts which are more commonplace in today’s era. We cover some techniques to use these channels to build rapport and convert clients too in tandem with calls and live meetings.

Is sales training useful if I present on video (e.g. Zoom)?

If you regular speak over video conference to prospects techniques learned can be tweaked for video too. We teach you how to conduct effective discovery calls and leverage digital applications to facilitate an effective sales process.

Can I learn sales techniques virtually?

Our trainers are well-versed in teaching over popular platforms like Zoom or Microsoft Teams, leveraging technology like iPad whiteboards, Miro and more to make learning interactive and at times even more engaging than live sessions.

What if I need specific help with my issues?

Our programs are partially customised to meet client needs. However, if you find challenges that require focused help, we highly recommend considering working with our instructors for one-to-one coaching.
