Alan Berg - Stop selling photo booths and music, and start selling the experience - BALLROOM

February 20
Monday 12:00 PM 1 Hour

By the time you get an email, contact form request or other inquiry, they’re already interested in your products and/or services. One of the biggest reasons they don’t buy is that you’re trying to sell them what you want, instead of what they really want to have. When you learn how to ask better questions, and ditch your sales pitch, you’ll be able to close more sales.

Come to this session and learn:

How to find out what they really want
How the best words to use aren't your own
How helping them buy will reduce the time it takes to close the sale
How helping them buy will help you increase your profits
