Forget the hard sell – no one likes high pressure. This session begins with an overview of marketing and the important role of direct selling. It addresses issues such as what it takes to be good at sales, how to generate prospects/leads, effectively using the telephone, establishing rapport with prospects, handling objections, cold calls, and closing the sale. The instructor has been both a salesperson and a sales manager, and believes if you can’t sell, you can’t succeed. Any small business must sell their services or products before they can succeed.
