The aim of this workshop is to assist participants to develop a range of skills and techniques required for effective selling and apply them to any specific working or business situation. It also assists delegates understand the importance of following a process and the benefits that accrue through using a structured approach.
The objectives of this course are to provide participants with the essential skills necessary to enable them to:
- Understanding the Sales process
- Identifying common barriers to effective sales
- Build rapport and elicit information
- Develop strategies to overcome objections
- Improving confidence in objection handling
- Improving speed and efficiency of objection handling
- Increasing the number of options available to handle the objection
- Improve their ability to influence others and grow sales
This programme has been specifically designed for people who have little or no sales experience or those who have some practical experience but no formal training in this area. There is an emphasis on practical solutions to commonly encountered issues when selling to customers. Delegates will have an opportunity to develop their own solutions to situations that they find difficult to overcome.
Many Organisations consider that everyone they come into contact with is a customer – either an internal or external customer and the ability to ‘sell’ ideas and motivate others to act is seen as an intrinsic competence for all supervisors and managers
