Do prospective clients seem to take a long time to make the decision to purchase?

Is your pipeline of new business opportunities delivering unpredictable results?

Are you or your team investing valuable resources and time following up with clients that never buy?

Many small-to-mid sized businesses struggle with the division of marketing and sales. This confusion often leads to unfocused effort and unpredictable results. Chip Doyle of Sandler Training will share an easy-to-apply methodology for optimizing the business development processes of small-to-mid sized companies based on the book "The Sandler Rules."

In this interactive session, small business owners, salespeople
and consultants will be able to:
Identify whether marketing or the sales effort is the weaker link in your business development system.
Implement straightforward strategies for managing identified opportunities and make the (sometimes painful) decision to abandon or pursue specific projects.
Minimize fruitless follow-up with prospects that will never buy.
Deploy the 3 strategic systems required for perpetual sales success in this economy.
Employ advanced techniques used by consultative salespeople to enroll clients without awkward arm-twisting closes.
Avoid the expensive marketing mistakes that only big businesses can afford to make.
