Maximize the Sale Workshop

Posted to Event by Mr. Jason Garrison of Philadelphia Business Journal at 11:22 AM

Are you tired of losing sales or discounting to win business?

This workshop is designed for Business Owners, VP of Sales, Sales Managers and Sales & Business Development Professionals.


Do you or your salespeople ever:

Find it increasingly difficult to add NEW opportunities to your sales pipeline?
Struggle to create value for your product or service so you can hold firm on margins?
Allow the market to influence you rather than you influencing the market?
Provide unpaid consulting, thus wasting your valuable resources?

In this workshop you will discover a compelling sales strategy that will:

Create that slight edge sales advantage
Take unintentional wasted time and resources out of your sales cycle
Eliminate forecast volatility
Overcome the random approach to sales calls
Close the sale with a think-it-over prospect
