Whether your objective is to improve your business’s sales team and future, or develop yourself as a professional and create a successful sales career, The Academy is here to teach you everything you need to be aware of. Starting with sales prospecting, value proposition and helping the customer navigate the sales funnel to closing deals confidently – every time.

Our sales training courses

You may have taken sales training courses in the past and believe you’ve learned everything there is to know. So, what separates us from others? The Academy is a unique training provider offering sales training courses which focus on the single factor crucial to sales performance that will truly assist you in achieving your goals – closing the sale.

You will learn how to approach any potential client, whether you are reaching out to a contact who gave you a business card at an event, or following up with an enquiry from the general public or getting in touch with a prospect that viewed your website.

But how do you turn prospects into paying customers?

We provide sales training courses that provide you with the self-assurance and sales process skills needed to engage buyers and convert early-stage leads into closed sales, without appearing pushy or manipulative.

Our experienced sales coaching team will teach you the sales techniques and personal qualities required in order to reach the final decision-maker and increase the rate of sales conversion by 30-70%. Our proven strategies will enable you to close more deals than you ever imagined was feasible! You can become sales leaders in your industry and finalise major sales to major customers.

Why are "selling skills" vital for big wins?

Whatever sector you are working in, there will be a need to develop sales skills and sales professionals – we all have something to sell!

Sales management training is key. Proficient selling skills are crucial for any job role, but for sales management specifically, without knowing the right sales methodology it is likely that you are burning leads and wasting a lot of your time and money.

Sales professionals must be able to create an effective sales strategy that is thoroughly optimised for the target customer, with the best practices and tailored processes which establish the foundation for an organisation’s sales effectiveness and overall success. This is where our sales training courses come in.

Salesperson stereotype

Imagine the stereotypical salesperson

There is a good chance that we’ve seen the stereotypical salesperson – imagine a sales manager at a car dealership for example. A lively, extrovert who is reeling off the same tiresome rehearsed spiel to each person they encounter. These people usually won’t allow you to get a word in and throw so much sales jargon your way it feels like they’re talking at you, not to you. This method of selling creates the impression that the customer’s cash is more valuable to them than their happiness.

This is one of the biggest mistakes made by sales professionals. Many salespeople do not realise that selling is a two-way interaction. Active listening helps you to identify customer concerns and gives you the chance to address buyer pain points. This increases the value of your product or service that you’re trying to sell and suddenly gives  your business with an edge over the majority of competitors.

Customers want to know that they are heard and you are doing everything in your power help and support them to their purchasing decision. Not only will this kind of customer support you in closing deals for you and your organisation, but it also increases the likelihood of repeat business.

We offer sales training classes that emphasise the importance of relationship selling and prioritise the customer experience, taking you through the entire sales process and explaining how you can close more sales.

THE SALES
  PROCESS

In order to convert a prospective customer from an initial lead into a closed deal, you as a salesperson must follow a specific framework made up of important and repeatable steps. This is known as the sales process or the sales cycle. Our sales training programs will give you the knowledge and tools required to master this practice.

Prospecting

Prospecting is the initial phase of the sales process. Here you will manage sales opportunities, research potential customers and reach out to contacts in the hopes of generating leads and securing the business.

Qualifying

Qualifying leads is a crucial procedure that decides which leads you should treat as your top priority to follow up. The leads you choose to follow should be arranged by the possibility of them becoming customers – this could be based on your primary data, secondary statistics or even customer personas.

Preparation

At this stage you should take time to get acquainted with the business or individual you plan to present your idea to, and also learn about their business and industry in general. This will enable you to find possible issues that you can then offer a solution to with your product or service and resolve customer concerns. Being aware of your lead and their situation will make you look more credible and increase the likelihood of good sales results.

Presentation

This is an essential element in this stage of the sales process. This is where you can tell your lead how your product/service is valuable to them, using the research you have previously conducted.

Make sure you back your assertions with data and statistics. A solution-based strategy can only be successful if you prove to the customer that your product/service can actually solve their problems and bring additional value.

Be sure to know who you’re pitching to – what approach should you take with this lead to initiate an exchange and build a rapport? Conversation will only aid in learning more information that you can use in your pitch.

Objection Handling

Objection handling is where your abilities and soft skills will shine. A customer might have concerns about your product/service. In this scenario you should be sympathetic with them and offer them a counter to their concern to help them overcome their uncertainty and progress the sale.

You can encounter an objection at any stage of the process. This is why it is essential that whenever possible, you anticipate and prepare for any resistance the lead may have to your suggestions.

Closing

Like the name implies, this is our speciality here at The Elite Closing Academy. Closing is the a key stage of the sales process where all your efforts lead to. This is the moment to apply certain strategies to get the customer to affirmatively say yes. Summarise with confidence and assume that they’ll accept what you are offering. If you sense hesitance, offer incentives and address any remaining issues by offering solutions to increase the extra value. Sign up with The Academy today for elite value based sales training.

Sometimes, you must students with sales training programs necessary to manage rejection and use this to gain advantage.

Follow up

Wherever possible, it is important to follow-up on key accounts after agreeing deals. It could be done to put the elements of the deal into action for the client or offer post-purchase customer support. This is key to building trust with your customers and, if you believe they’re interested in different items or services, it could be the point at which you start the buying process restarts.

At the Elite Closing Academy, we will help you through each step of this procedure. We make sure that sales teams are skilled at closing, and we can almost ensure that your organisation can convert leads into outstanding sales results.
