The following agenda is delivered over 1 or 2 days depending on the existing sales skill set within the team.

The greatest success is seen in team who are currently:

  • Struggling to fill the sales funnel with high quality, well qualified sales leads that convert
  • Missing simple sales opportunities in cross sell, up sell, generate referrals from existing customers, re-activate lapsed quotes, re-engage past customers
  • Have a lumpy sales pipeline where deal flow is slower than ideal
  • Have an overly full sales pipeline with low conversion rates from one stage to the next
  • Find that deals typically stall at the same stage every time
  • Tired of having sales prospects disappear mid -way through the sales process
  • Avoid talking about price right until the very end of the sales call
  • Spend ages doing sales proposals, quotes, requotes and still get fobbed off
  • Falling for simple, avoidable sales objections
  • Have poor sales activity habits, meaning not enough time making valid pipeline contributions
  • Lack confidence in talking about price, value, risk
  • Sound just like the telesales team who work for your competitors.

This course, dealing with the very specific challenges faced by telesales teams and telephone sales teams, removes each of these issues and much more….so you get a super-charged telesales team capable of side-stepping the most common telesales pitfalls.

Finally, giving your telesales team all the skills, habits and confidence they need to close business efficiently, effectively and with greater confidence and motivation to convert and close.

Course Outcomes

The course has a number of very positive outcomes.

Telesales teams report, post attending that:

  • They are more in control of their sales success than they though – via careful prospect selection and tailored call structures
  • They feel confident building enormous value in the sales pitch using their enhanced sales skill set
  • Presenting and selling the product / service price is done with ease, confidence and pride
  • Using value, risk, and benefit matrix to influence and persuade prospects puts them in a peer-to-peer exchange rather than a sales pitch
  • Exploring and exploiting all the lapsed customer opportunities, referral opportunities and key decision makers within their extended networks means they have a strong base to start from which means fewer cold calls

Of course there are additional very specific issues that are covered in this B2B telephone sales training course, the aim is to remove or minimise any risks to closing the sale or having a sales pipeline collapse: for example, how to…

  • Differentiate the opening sales introduction from that of your competitors
  • Build value in the exchange
  • Get comfortable with selling at any price
  • Qualify quickly, effectively and commercially so as to protect time and focus
  • Pre-empt typical objections that case sales calls to stall and opportunities to go cold
  • Build a peer to peer exchange rather than a sales pitch
  • Prevent sales prospects going dark half way through a sales negotiation
