#29 Basics of Negotiations for Sales People
When agendas clash... And a sale hangs in the balance... The art of negotiation can save the day! The common definition of negotiation is "win-win". It is where both sides agree to meet somewhere in the middle of a difference. The result is greater than the victory of the moment. Negotiation also sows the seeds of trust, understanding and long term relationships. In other words, negotiation is the sales person's secret weapon. It is more important today than ever before, yet the basic skills remain a mystery to most. As a result many sales are lost and opportunities are squandered. In this session, we will take another step towards sales mastery by examining the basics of negotiation as they apply directly to sales.

#31 Consultative Selling:  Understanding the Customer's Gap

It’s all of these:

  • the heart of the salesperson’s job,
  • the one practice in which the superstars distinguish themselves from the also-rans,
  • the one thing without which the salesperson becomes just an order taker or price cutter.

In this seminar, Dave will help you…

  • understand the four levels of a customer’s gap
  • see the relationship between the gap and everything else a salesperson and customer do

#32 Developing New Customers
The number one complaint we hear from sales executives is this: "My sales people don't develop nearly enough new customers." The biggest reason for this is that few sales people are systematic about acquiring new customers. They aren't sure how to go about it.

#14 Differentiating Yourself from the Competition
Commodity clone or sales consultant? Is your market becoming a lineup of faceless vendors where commodity thinking clouds the customer's mind and low price usually wins? Let Dave help you break through that status quo quagmire and stand apart as the most qualified person with which to do business. Customers more and more view all suppliers as being alike. It's difficult to stand out in the customer's mind. As a result, you are viewed as a commodity, and often overlooked when it comes time to make a decision. In this seminar, we'll articulate proven strategies and tactics to differentiate yourself from competitive sales people, to carve out a special niche in the customer's mind, gain strategies and tricks to set you apart as someone special, and the one worth doing business with.

#43 Get Organized! Managing Information Before it Manages You
Every sales person I know could, if they wanted to, spend 12 to 20 hours a week studying computer screens, responding to email, and surfing the internet. In today's world, the sheer quantity of information threatens every sales person. If they don't get organized to manage information, they'll find themselves being rendered ineffective. Managing information means developing and adhering to systems to defend against the temptation to spend too much time with information, while at the same time, insuring that you are collecting the useful information. In this program, Dave describes both systems, and provides practical ideas to help sales people get organized to manage information effectively.

#41 How to Deal with the Competition Like a Pro
“It would be a great job if it weren’t for the competition.”

Alas, there always is competition. Most sales people have never been trained in the specific attitudes and tactics that mark the professional approach to dealing with the competition.

In this program, Dave describes several principles of professionally dealing with the competition, and then articulates four specific tactics used by the most professional sales people.

#37 How to Master Key Account Selling
It's one thing to sell small items to a lot of people. It's quite another to penetrate a large, key account. The complexities of sophisticated organization and politics are beyond the scope of many sales people.

That means that many of your highest potential, most profitable accounts are never fully penetrated. Your sales and profits lag behind what they could be.

#15 How to Skillfully Handle Difficult Customers
Wouldn't it be great if every customer was reasonable, easy to approach, and thought like we do? We could sell everyone. Wishful thinking. Many of our customers are difficult. Sometimes they even become angry and upset. That's when our skill and character are really tested. And yet, those difficult customers often hold the keys to better-than-average sales and profits. Untrained sales people are stopped by the difficult customer, and revert to limiting themselves to calling on people they like. True professionals adeptly work with any personality. They have an effective strategy and a set of important skills that sets them above the rest. In today's difficult economy, no sales person can afford to ignore a portion of the market because those customers are too challenging. In this 60 minute session, we'll dissect the issue of difficult customers, and provide you with strategies to deal with people that rub you the wrong way. We'll equip you with specific tactics you can use to effectively sell to anyone. And, we'll provide a simple process for responding effectively to the angry and upset customer. As a result, you'll:

  • gain more confidence in your abilities.
  • look forward to the challenge of difficult customers.
  • sell to people who before wouldn't think of buying from you.

#27 Overcoming Time Wasters for Salespeople

#6 Persuasive Presentations - Part 1: Planning & Preparation
Eventually, every sales strategy comes down to one person delivering your message. Will they be prepared to succeed? The Boy Scouts may have originated the motto of "Be Prepared", but your sales team lives or dies by it. A sales presentation cannot be scripted. It seldom follows a predictable path. Daily shifts in business needs and variations in human nature make every presentation a walk on the wire without a net. The sales person who makes it all the way to the sale is the one with the best presentation. This includes much more than just product knowledge, and in this session we cover the full spectrum of what it takes to succeed.

#7 Persuasive Presentations: Part 2: 10 Tips for Powerful, Persuasive Presentations
Tactics to executing the game plan. Tactics are the tools you use to reach your goal. Be sure your players know the right and wrong ways to carry the ball. Strategies and goals tend to be general: "win the account... close the sale..." These strategies seldom change, but the tactics used to achieve success must be flexible enough to avoid obstacles and objections. Once your team goes face to face at the point of sale, they need a full range of tactics to assure success. This is why the sales master can beat the one-dimensional sales pitch guy every time. In this program I'll teach the tactics and strategies your sales force needs to master the art of powerful presentations.

#33 Positioning Yourself with Value
Two sales people call on the same customer. One is escorted back to see the key decision maker, while another is locked out by the receptionist. Or, one is provided with the real crux of what the customer wants and asked to make a creative proposal, while the other is asked to just send a price. It happens all the time. Maybe to you and to your sales people. What is that mysterious quality that makes one sales person appear to be a professional consultant, respected for his/her value, while another is treated like a "peddler?" Positioning yourself with value addresses this critical and sophisticated aspect of the sales person's job. In this 60 minute seminar you'll learn what it is that makes one sales person appear more competent and confident than another.

"Your price is too high!"

In this program, Dave describes the most common actions, words and attitudes that prompt the customer to challenge our price. Then he offers substitutes that don't encourage the price objection.

This seminar will show you how to prevent the price objection. If price is an issue for you, you need to attend.

#26 Sales Practices to Increase Margins
"Lose a little on each sale, but make it up on volume." That's not so far from the idea that many sales people have of their pricing philosophy. Unfortunately, in many industries the excess margin that allowed for the unrestrained price cutting has already been wrung out of the system. Maintaining and/or increasing the gross margin, is in many businesses, a strategic necessity. Sales people and sales managers can dramatically impact the gross margin by their actions and their attitudes. In this seminar, Dave reveals seven specific practices for sales staff to follow to increase their company's margins. Implement these practices and you'll pay for this seminar in one day!

#30 Sharpening Your Sales Vision: Focusing on Sales Opportunities
I know your seasoned sales managers have suffered through this scenario before. Your sales person is moving relentlessly along on their carefully prepared presentation, completely blind to hints, suggestions and opportunities being tossed out both verbally and non-verbally by the prospect.

This session will focus on the basic principles and simple tools you can use to uncover - discover and generally make the most of these new opportunities.

#8 Strategies for Closing the Sale
Every sales person talks about "closing the sale." The best sales people understand that before you can close the sale, you must open it. Most of your competitors are able to meet the prospect's technical needs. The sale often goes to the supplier who takes the time to understand the personal and situational aspects of the buying dynamics of the customer. Closing is a science, and it can be learned. It just requires some study and preparation. In this 60-minute seminar your people will learn....

  • how to read buying signs.
  • how to earn the right to close.

#28 Strategic Planning for Sales People
"Ready, Shoot, Aim." That little expression, when applied to sales people, would be funnier if it weren't so indicative of the way many sales people go about their jobs. Sales people are, by nature, oriented towards being active. "Let's just do it!" is the typical marching order. And a few years ago, that approach was OK. However, in today's difficult economy, when sales are more difficult and customers more pressed for time, the effective, professional sales person must be thoughtful about where he/she invests prime selling time. In this 60 minute, intensive session, sales guru Dave Kahle shares planning principles, strategies, processes and tools that propelled him to the status of number one sales person in the country for two different companies in two distinct industries. Utilizing key questions and simple forms, you'll analyze, prioritize and plan, far more effectively than ever. As a result, you'll:

  • understand a process for creating powerful strategic plans.

  • culture a greater respect from your customers.
  • achieve more in less time.

#13 Victory Over Voicemail
Challenge: Voicemail is driving me crazy! It seems like I can never get through to the people I want to talk to. Welcome to the club. Not so many years ago, there was no such thing as voicemail. Today, it is almost impossible to call a customer on the phone and get directly to him. The electronic gatekeeper, voicemail, stands in the way. Voicemail has become the number one irritant for sales people in the Information Age. If you can't communicate with your customers, you can't get to see them. And if you can't get to see them, you've been knocked out of the sales process. Unless you learn to work through this electronic obstacle, the likelihood of you making a sale is dramatically reduced. Voicemail strikes to the heart of the sales person's job - their ability to talk to their customers. There is probably no new technology that has caused sales people more frustration than this. In this interactive seminar, Dave will convey some strategies, principles and techniques for both short-term tactical 'how-to's' as well as longer-term strategies for overcoming this obstacle. As a result of this seminar, you'll learn:

  • A powerful, fundamental strategy to follow.
  • The two distinctly different situations to plan for.
  • Three strategies to accommodate the power of voicemail.
  • Five ways to more effectively implement a voicemail message.
  • Ten specific tactics that increase the likelihood of receiving a return call.
