What will you learn?

The day will focus onthree main topics:

Why buyers choose on price

Many printing sales pitches actually encourage buyers to choose on price. We’ll spend the first part of the day examining key factors that make conversations price based. We’ll examine your sales message and actions to see if you might be encouraging people to focus on price.

The three elements of an effective sales message

Most sales messages make print companies sound pretty much the same as the competition. To attract the serious attention of a buyer, your sales message must have three elements: target audience, pain and difference. We’ll go through this message structure in detail. You will build a sales message for your company based on these principles.

How to attract a list of prospects that want to speak to you

Cold calling is still the prime sales channel for the majority of print companies.  However, it’s an inefficient way of selling.  We’ll look at ways of regularly contacting hundreds of prospects.  These will be prospects who have actually asked to hear from you.  We’ll also examine how to turn this interest into orders.

At the end of the workshop you’ll have a brand new sales message for your most important prospects and customers.  You’ll also understand the process for creating more messages like this.  You’ll also come away with a strategy for attracting new prospects, engaging with them on a regular basis and turning them into customers.
