sales team’s potential
Craft strong, authentic, powerful messaging to grab attention, convey distinction and tell your story.
Gartner Group says that by 2020 (don’t blink!) 85% of all communications will be digital.
Is your sales team ready?
Are they prepared to use email to communicate distinction, value, care? Can they start, advance and close a sale with email?
And what about when they get your customers on the phone or make their pitch to the decision-makers?
Getting buyers to read, sit up, pay attention and say, “Yes, please!” becomes more challenging every day.
WHAT MATTERS TO BUYERS TODAY
High-performing companies revolve everything around their customers.
They close more leads because they know how to:
make next steps simple,
show authentic care,
align messaging with what actually matters,
infuse positivity and
help buyers envision the ROI they require.
They build more business because they craft smart messaging and have a predictive, clear sales cadence that makes it easy for buyers to move forward.
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.
