Conversations Into Cash
I’ve been involved in hundreds of sales pitches over the years with businesses of all sizes. From one man bands to some of the world’s largest companies such as Hewlett Packard, Symantec, and Pepsico.
You probably know me best for my unique approach to opening sales opportunities.
However, as wonderful as receiving complimentary responses might be, it means nothing unless you can capitalise on the situation and turn the prospect into a paying client.
That is, you have to turn conversations into cash.
You need to follow up. You need to impress them on a phone call or in a meeting. You need to ask questions. You need to demonstrate your competence.
“Conversations Into Cash” shows you everything you need to know.
This set of training videos will show you how to:
- How to respond to positive responses from prospects and book in a sales call.
