Pre-Call Planning Strategies

Braintree Workshop:
Thursday, April 27th | 11:30 am – 1:30 pm

Woburn Workshop:
Friday, April 28th | 11:30 am – 1:30 pm

Are you wasting your time on sales calls?

Pre-Call planning seems like a no-brainer, but, many salespeople don't put in the effort to actually follow through with it. They wing it and then they wonder why they lost control on the sales call. Has this ever happened to you?

In the Sandler Selling System, there are five crucial elements of pre-call planning. Join us for this 2-hour workshop to find out what those elements are and how to:

  • Ensure you ask all the right questions and not forget them in a pressure filled situation
  • Pre-brief yourself before the sales call and debrief yourself after the sales call
  • Avoid looking like a salesperson
  • Formulate a winning mindset
  • Create a process that will ensure every sales call has a purpose, agenda, time commitment and clear outcome

Business Owner's and Sales Manager's Forum

Hingham Workshop:
Wednesday, May 10th | 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Woburn Workshop:
Thursday, May 11th | 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm

More and more Sales Managers are challenged with higher goals in a tightening economy

So, we have created a Forum in which Sales Managers, Owners and Chief Executives can come together and have their sales management challenges heard, as well as leave with solutions.

Even though we may sell in different verticals, marketplaces and territories, and even though we may all come from different businesses, sales management problems are pretty universal.

The Managers' Forum is a fast, efficient and effective way to address sales management problems. So we invite you to participate in one session as our guest. Below are the purposes, logistics, format and what you can expect for results.

Purpose: To help people that manage people that sell, sales teams and representatives, to improve sales management skills and competencies. Topics are varied covering a wide range, including coaching, training, mentoring, supervising, motivating, recruiting, staging sales meetings, employee reviews, conflict resolution, communication, surveying customers, goal setting for self and team, correcting negative behavioral patterns and “growing team members to the next level”.

Logistics: Managers’ Forum meets monthly one Thursday evening per month. Meetings start at 5:30p and ending at 8:30p. Dates are scheduled 90 days out. It meets over dinner and is preceded by an informal “meet and greet”. Meals are included. Guests are welcome to participate in one meeting at no charge.

Format: Participants share problems, challenges, goals and agenda prior to each meeting. These become topics of the next Managers’ Forum meeting. Meetings are facilitated by Greg Nanigian – an accomplished sales and sales management trainer. There are usually one or more hand-outs based on the topics. Participants share a 30-day implementation at the close of each meeting. Results of 30-day implementations are shared at the next Managers’ Forum.

Results: Participants from different industries are co-mingled in Managers’ Forum Meetings and the one thing they have in common is that they manage people that sell. Through the sharing and training that takes place the average manager achieves a 50 percent increase in sales management competency in one year of participation. Given that meetings are fun, no fluff and based on the Sandler Sales Management System, results are extraordinary.

We invite you to join us once for a commitment fee of only $5 which will be refunded upon arrival. You will also receive a FREE copy of "Lead When You Dance: 14 Success Secrets from Sales Managers for Sales Managers!"

Pain Clinic

Woburn Workshop:
Friday, May 19th | 11:30am - 1:30pm

Do you know how to uncover your prospect's real pain?

People make decisions for two reasons: They are either moving toward pleasure or trying to move away from pain.

Although prospects buy emotionally, their decisions are intellectual. The strongest emotion your prospect experiences is pain. Your goal as a salesperson is to get your prospect emotionally involved. He/she will experience pain and reveal the cause of the pain, so you may provide the solution.

Learn how to allow your product or service to gently unfold, as the prospect provides the fit. There is a world of difference between feature and benefit selling and developing pain.
