So, you’re running your business, or leading a communications or marketing department, and you don’t have time to do everything­… You’re tempted to cut corners on your own marketing and PR, and you find yourself resorting to “doing what we always used to do”… Well, that’s no way to grow your business!

This event includes a breakout session where you can explore ideas with our presenters to develop solutions for your business. Of course there will be plenty of networking both before and after our formal program.

NAWBO – Virtual Connect & Learn – How To Sell More and Feel Good About It (DC Metro)
Jun 13 @ 5:00 pm – 6:00 pm

If I got paid a dollar each time I heard this, my piggy bank would overflow! This collective yearning for “more clients” is shared by nearly all business owners around the world. But most of them don’t realize that they are missing a critical element.

It’s not one thing that is missing, it’s a series of steps you need.

In the ‘5 Star Success Blueprint’, the first step is to identify the skill at which you personally excel, your USP, and, finally, your target client. This understanding allows you to narrow your focus and finetune your message. Then you move to the second step–selling.

Here is what we will cover in this boot camp style training:

  • Solid and increasing sales showcase a well-executed transfer of confidence to the buyer. I will share some essential strategies to increase sales, using my method of “Getting Inside the Client’s Head.”
  • You will learn which elements are needed to create a value proposition that is customized to solve each client’s specific need. From pinpointing what clients actually want, to pricing it correctly, to effectively positioning and packaging it, this presentation outlines a unique relationship-based sales solution.
  • Learn how to better analyze clients, negotiate firmly and create mutually beneficial partnerships with those clients—all with the aim of increasing your bottom line.

You will take away:

  • How to solve your client’s problems from a partnership perspective
  • What elements are required to isolate your prospect’s wants and needs
  • How to avoid the single biggest mistake most salespeople make

Invest some of your time now and win more clients, sell them more and feel great! This training is open to ALL business owners—you do not have to be a NAWBO member–so please join us!
