by Sean Kanan
Many sales personnel are content to “coast” in their sales position particularly if targets are easily achieved and there is little pressure to improve performance. If as a member of a sales team you find that with little effort you are scoring well on all key performance indicators imagine how much more you could achieve if you were to undertake a good sales training course.
The most successful sales professionals are constantly seeking the challenge of improving their sales performance. While improved figures can be achieved to a large extent when a salesperson is highly motivated, motivation alone will not deliver the best results for you. Similarly, if you are in business and have a sales team that is generally delivering good results do not underestimate the benefits of providing that sales team with access to sales training courses.
By doing so you not only demonstrate the value you put on your sales team you garner increased loyalty from your staff. While many employers believe that the wages or salary figure paid to a staff member is of most importance to them, research shows that employees value highly any opportunity of self-improvement or training that will lead to promotion within the business.
If you enjoy the sales environment or are looking to further increase sales volumes in your business then consider sales training course as an avenue to achieve this. Online courses are available but while these might be convenient the reality is that you will achieve a much better result if you look to undertake sales training courses that are either on a workshop basis (with a limited number of participants) or offer a service whereby the sales training course is conducted in-house.
By participating with others in such sales programmes you have the opportunity to “bounce” off one another and experiment with role playing such as telephone prospecting, first client meetings, closing the deal. This gives you a real feel for where you can improve your current approach because you see first hand the response to alternative sales techniques which you may not have previously considered.
By investing in your future through participation in sales training course you will open up many more opportunities. When applying for a sales position any employer will be impressed if you are seen to have regular up-skilled and stayed in touch with new techniques and approaches for prospecting for leads, steering telephone discussion, cementing the closure of a sale. Within your existing work environment you should always take up any offer from your employer to provide sales training courses to you.
