How to Fix the Top 5 Mistakes Made During Sales Demos

Thursday, July 21st @ 1 pm ET

We’ve all sat through demos that are total snoozefests; they’re too long, too detailed, and don’t tell you what you really want to know about a product. For reps, a product demo is a chance for you to get prospects excited about your product, and the quality of your demo can make or break your sale.

In this session, you’ll learn the top 5 mistakes made during demos, plus how to avoid giving a boring demo, and how to keep prospects wanting to know more. By the end, you’ll have a clear plan to deliver a demo that doesn’t suck!

The Ultimate Sales Rep + Manager Relationship

Tuesday, August 16th @ 1 pm ET

We know how tough it is to find great salespeople, so the smart leaders are asking a better question, “How do we keep our reps?” The bottom line is always the relationship between an employee and their manager. So what does the ultimate Sales Rep to Sales Manager relationship look like? Gallup reports that reps with great relationships won’t leave a company unless they’re offered over 20% higher salary. 

Come learn 10 things you can do ASAP to boost the relationship with your reps (and reps with their managers!). We’ll hear from in-demand sellers and award-winning leaders so we can beat the Great Resignation by keeping talent longer, loving our jobs, and all making more commission.

Call Coaching: 5 Things Reps + Managers Need to Prepare

This webinar has passed. Watch recording below.

We all know that we need more and better call coaching – that it can lead to big leaps in quota attainment, improve rep engagement AND leap tall buildings in single bounds. So why don’t we hear any real-life success stories? Why can’t your team find the time? Why are your top managers still avoiding it? And why are our teams still averaging 60% to quota? Because call coaching is HARD!

In this session, we’re breaking down the top 5 things both reps and managers need to prepare before each coaching session and how to ensure every coaching session is productive and efficient.

How to Leave a Voicemail That Gets Returned

This webinar has passed. Watch recording below.

A shocking 90% of outbound calls end in voicemails, and only a mere 3% of those voicemails are actually returned. So why aren’t you receiving a call back? It’s likely because your voicemail is bad. 👎

In this session, we’ll teach voicemail strategies that work! You can expect double to triple returned calls – that’s about 5-10 more conversations a week (or another selling day!). Plus, you’ll walk away with 4 voicemail scripts that you can use ASAP!
