I went to university and graduated in the top 20 percent of my class. I worked for a company for several years before deciding to strike it out on my own. I had the business know how to do this, plus I had the savings to ensure that I did not have to worry about not having optimal numbers for the first year. What I was lacking though was sales training, something that was briefly touched on but not at great lengths during my schooling. Thankfully, a colleague told me about verkooptraining, and I signed up for one of their courses.
It turned out to be the best decision I could have made. I learned a good bit in those classes, much more than I ever would have thought possible for such a short course. I learned all about negotiations, which is the key for any and all sales. There is always going to be some give and take, and I learned how to ensure that I am on the winning end of that. Before I took this course, I was not closing a lot of my sales calls because I just lacked the knowledge in how to do that.
With this course, I learned all about sales. The biggest help for me was learning how to persuade customers or clients who initially showed very little interest in what I was trying to sell them. I learned about consultative selling, and I have been closing the majority of my sales calls now. I know that I needed my university education, but I honestly believe that this sales training is what has made my business so successful. I have brought on a few other sales people by now, and I make sure that they all take this course, and our bottom line shows that it definitely works.
