Business-to-Consumer Sales Essentials™ – A Complete Modular B2C Sales Training Program

B2C Sales Skills

This is the sales primer for all business to consumer (B2C) sales personnel! Whether you are new to B2C or sales, or an experienced B2C pro, B2C Sales Essentials™ provides a foundational set of B2C selling and customer relationship building best practices to achieve more sales, higher margins, and happier customers who evangelize for your products and services. B2C Sales Essentials™ is interactive by design and fully applicable to your product and service solutions as well as your specific industry and market.

Begin with the B2C Sales Essentials™ Assessment. The B2C Sales Essentials™ Assessment is an online assessment that measures someone’s knowledge and awareness of the current and emerging best practices in B2C selling. Upon completion of the assessment you’ll have a baseline measurement for the B2B sales and customer relationship building competence levels of both individuals and the organization, as well as a comparison to the international average. You can identify organizational strengths and weaknesses, and build a teaching and coaching plan to become strong in all areas.

Then Select the Specific Training That Makes the Most Sense . B2C Sales Essentials™ is a modular program that allows you to complete the specific modules you want, when you want them. While each module builds upon the principles and learnings of the previous modules, each module can also be used as a stand-alone course, especially helpful when members of your sales team need a refresher.

So Very Much More Than Just Training! How’s this for added value?

  • We’ll embed YOUR culture, brand, products, and services into each training module, so that your employees learn what’s relevant to your organization, not something generic.
  • We’ll train your trainers how to self-administer our programs, and license them to you, bringing your per-participant training costs down, down, down.
  • Want to measure the effectiveness of your staff’s learning outcomes? We can help you do that with our proprietary assessment.
  • Want help in designing manager coaching programs to help your staff master the B2C Sales Essentials™ principles? We do that as well!
  • You can even use our B2C Sales Essentials™ Assessment as a pre-hire tool to help you identify training needs of new hires, and cut new staff onboarding time by 35%.
  • In short, we’ll partner with you to ensure you get a program that changes behavior and provides an ROI you can measure. And speaking of ROI, most of our customers achieve between 10 and 100 times ROI for our programs!
