Providing association professionals with the skills, motivation, and tools to successful sell sponsorship, membership, and other products in a way that makes members love you.
Poor performance on the phone or in the meeting can completely scuttle a promising relationship and is the biggest factor for the failure to successfully acquire sponsors and members. It is critical that all staff involved in interactions with members understand the unique sales strategies particular to the association environment. The stereotypical “hard sell” doesn’t work – and doesn’t generate lasting results.
This interactive presentation will provide a fresh perspective to dealing with prospective members and sponsors that will give delegates a renewed enthusiasm for outbound sales calls, face to face selling and proactive engagement. In recognition of the unique challenges faced by associations undertaking a proactive sales process there is an emphasis on membership and sponsorship sales.
This session is ideal for staff and volunteers who have the responsibility of speaking to prospects whether in person or on the phone. Julian understands that many association staff don’t enjoy sales. He has developed strategies to assist these people to perform at a much higher level and with a renewed passon for their role.
Delegates will be able to ask any question and receive practical advice on how to resolve and immediately implement the solution.
This session can be run as an in-house workshop tailored to your organisation. Please contact the speaker for more information.
