DO YOU THINK that you can grow your company without sales staff training? You’re a fool if you do....FACT! For years, companies believed that sales training was a “nice-to-have” rather than a “must have.” There are several strategic reasons an organisation should invest in sales training. These are not exclusive to just making money; they can extend way into more operational values of your company. Increased Revenue: Of course the most measurable outcome of sales training is revenue. In this highly competitive trading environment, there are a lot of companies also vying for your customers’ attention. The onus is on the sales team to offer the right product (need) to the right customer (targeting) at the right price (value) at an opportune time. Never under-estimate the power of strategy, it's this area that can shift sales noise to sales results. Product Knowledge and Expertise: New sales staff needs to have strong product or service knowledge about what they are selling. Just as important is understanding what your competitors are offering. Sales training will give an opportunity to educate new (and refresh existing) staff about the products or services that they are offering to potential customers. Information (company IP) can be passed on in an authentic and controlled way, leaving no room for ambiguity or misinformation that may have arisen if the staff member was left to learn about it on their own accord (transfer of bad habits) Procedural Compliance and Integrity: Sales training is important to relay the necessary sales procedures and disciplines. Sales fundamentals such as prospecting, needs assessment, qualification, nurturing, designing offers/solutions, through to closing the sale. Having these corporate procedures in place and also formally passed onto employees will remove any awkward situations later (even legal). Team Skills: Selling combines both technical skills, but also creative and personable values. Not everyone has this, nor can be trained for it. By providing training in leadership, team-building and communication skills, employees will be better equipped to showcase companies’ products/services and the use of their persuasive sales skills. It's also a great way to weed out the weak links in your sales team and provide them more targeted or focused training. Motivation: Developing that "Go-Get" attitude. Sales is a high-pressure job that leads to success and also many failures. Managing the highs and lows across a team is important in controlling these frustrations. Sales Coaching and Mentoring provides individuals and also teams with group motivation activities and morale boosting programs. Building "confidence" will ensure that the sales team does not lose focus on the end goal. These sales coaching and mentoring programs ultimately reduce sales employee turnover and increases their productivity. The value of Sales Coaching & Mentoring: If you do not have a formal sales training program initiated now, then I guarantee you that your competitors already have one. Great sales staff move a product/price scenario into a value-added business solution. rev™ Sales Coaching & Mentoring Programs are structured sales training programs that are tailored to suit the needs of both the sales employee, as well as the company. Our programs provide sales staff with the necessary skills, knowledge, guidance, and tools that build self-confidence which in turns increase the probability to close more sales.
