sales team’s potential
Write and craft strong, authentic, powerful e-messages that grab attention, convey distinction and tell your story.
Your sales force is passionate and persistent. They’re gritty and seasoned or irreverent and enthusiastic. Yet you know they stumble when they communicate your value prop. You review their emails and cringe. You watch them pitch and want to scream – or cry. No distinction. No trust. No difference between you and your competitive set. No shortlist. No sale. Change your words, change your world!
COME OUT OF THE GATE
WITH YOUR BEST
Often clients won’t even give you a chance to counter. One client found, using Delphi data, that between 45% – 80% of prospects give them just one chance to win the business!
But really that might not matter. Here’s why:
Most sales people give up after one follow-up email … despite rock-solid evidence proving multiple follow-up emails are needed to advance the sale.
And wait, there’s more!
80% of sales require five personalized, caring, authentic follow-ups!
COMMUNICATE TO WIN! ELEVATE EVERY CONVERSATION!
SpeakerSue uses email as the basis for sales training. Why? Because email is the way we sell today. From building trust while prospecting to becoming a trusted partner through smart, strategic follow-up, respectfully closing the business and creating solid business relationships, email is your advocate and handshake!!
FUNNY, INSPIRING AND DYNAMIC
APPROACHABLE AND AUTHENTIC
INNOVATIVE AND SMART
GENUINE AND CHALLENGING
THE KEY IS HOW YOU PRESENT YOUR SOLUTION
The email of the future is here!
Your sales force is too busy playing whack-a-mole with their in-box and e-channel leads, to get it right. Instead of nurturing and adding insight to the buying experience, they knee-jerk respond with transactional, off-putting messaging.
Business building is even worse. On average, 50% of selling time is wasted on unproductive prospecting.
It’s intent and care that nurtures not information or content.
Double your response rates by articulating your message and telling your story. Smart foundational skills and powerful advanced strategic selling tools change everything.
