Training Guide 1 - Unleash the sales drive, determination and motivation of your team! 

Retail is a contact sport, you can expect a few knocks. You need a certain level of mental toughness and unending optimism to make it in sales.

There is a belief that anyone can work it retail.  But not anyone can. Retail is an entry level profession in which the majority of new entrants exit. Why?  It's tough.  Especially if you're a 'people person' - which is what sales managers continually recruit. A 'people person' has a strong need to be liked, and win approval and praise from others - customers, colleagues and managers alike. They lack resilience - the bounce back factor, and the minute they are faced with rejection, often fall flat on the ground. You need a certain level of mental toughness and unending optimism to make it in sales. Not anyone can sell. But, with the right coaching they can learn techniques to increase their drive, determination and resilience.

It's important you first create a mind-set for success in your sales team, before introducing new selling skills and techniques.

  • Success = Skills x Motivation.

All the skills in the world are wasted if your team lacks motivation.

This training guide focuses on helping your team get excited and motivated to sell! You'll receive all the latest tools and techniques to enable your team to:

Training Guide 2 - Develop proactive selling behaviors to ensure a steady stream of sales even during quiet periods

Great consultants don't wait for sales, they plan for them.

Customer trading patterns may come in peaks and troughs, but the sheer number of tasks in retail provides some degree of continuity. There is always something to do and plan for. Great sales consultants use every opportunity when they are not with customers to plan for, prepare for, and follow up on their customers

Training Guide 3 - Improve customer engagement with advanced communication and influencing skills

Most retail training programs teach that to really connect with your customer, start with a non-business, original and humorous greeting. But that's wrong!  There are no 'rules of engagement'.  People can't be won over that easily - they're not that naïve!

Training Guide 4 - Personalize client solutions and deliver impactful presentations

There is no magic formula for selling. But there are skills your team can develop. One of these skills is being able to adapt your selling style to each customer. Great sales consultants are highly curious individuals. They find everything about their customers fascinating. They study each one, and use these learning's to help them with future customers.

Training Guide 6 - Learn creative solutions to overcome selling road blocks & Confidently Close More Sales

Our most comprehensive training guide is split into two parts.

Part One - Overcoming Selling Road blocks

A lot of sales people take objections personally. They find it hard to move beyond them and get stuck in a rut. Great sales people are able to take learning's away from each interaction, refocus and reframe. Poor sales consultants relive every rejection over and over again. They turn these objections into excuses for why they can't achieve their sales targets time and time again. Interestingly enough though, what we found from our study of multi-millionaire sales people, is that the more successful they were the fewer objections they had. In fact some had no objections whatsoever. 

There could be two reasons for this:

  1. They spend a lot of time qualifying the customer first
  2. They don't view objections as objections, but rather a point they need to clarify

Objections are just opinions, get curious in them.

In this section we provide tools and techniques which will enable your team to:

  1. Identify secondary objectives
  2. Learn how and when to make concessions
  3. Change their perception of objections as mere opinions we can either ignore or get curious about
  4. Learn how top sales consultants avoid objections altogether 
  5. Identify their own early signs of defensiveness when a customer raises a concern about a product they've presented 
  6. Learn simple techniques for building rapport and enhancing trust once a customer voices a concern
  7. Identify the differences between objections and excuses 

Includes:

  • 3 interesting stories to explain concepts and add variety to your training
  • 3 hand-outs that capture key concepts team members can use as quick reference guides
  • 1 group exercise to help convey key learning's and to add energy and fun to the training
  • 1 individual exercises for each team members self-awareness, personal growth and development

Part Two - Confidently Close More Sales

The best sales are the ones that close themselves, and most do with a bit of help from the sales consultant.

From our studies with multi-millionaire sales people we've found very few use a direct closing technique, or 'ask for the sale'. The majority of their customers close the sale themselves by deciding to make a purchase. This is best, as the product is then something they bought, as opposed to something they were sold.  The majority return to the same consultant time and time again, because they trust them not to sell them something, but rather to provide advice and consultation.

 In this section we provide tools and techniques which will enable your team to:

  1. Realize that not every sale is a good sale, and they need to qualify them first
  2. Understand the thoughts that occur when a customer's deciding whether or not to commit to a sale
  3. Feel confident helping a customer through that moment of hesitation 
  4. Apply a variety of techniques to help a customer make a purchasing decision
  5. Be able to tailor their technique to each customers personality type and the situation
  6. Use a variety of consultative closing techniques 

Includes:

  • 1 interesting story to explain concepts and add variety to your training
  • 3 hand-outs that capture key concepts team members can use as quick reference guides
  • 2 group exercises to help convey key learning's and to add energy and fun to the training
