Seminar
Increase sales using relationship-driven marketing with Jeffrey Schmidt!

Saturday, March 17, 2018 - 9 AM to 12 PM

Workshop overview:
“What to say” to make your sales grow now.
“How to say it” for repeat business and referrals.

Good marketing gets you noticed — then you need to close deals. Using a relational approach brings you to where your clients live, where they actually make buying decisions. Here are the relational skills taught in this seminar that will help you sell more.  

    • The most important ingredient to building trust in clients  
    • Seven ways to influence clients without maneuvering them
    • The words you need to sell more products and services
    • How to raise your inner game so your words will be heard

If you have a relationship-driven business these key areas are your foundation for success!

Three Powerful Sections

Trust
Clients will not buy from people they do not trust. Trust starts in the first seconds of an initial contact. In this seminar you will learn the single most important aspect of building and maintaining trust.  
 
Influence
Learn how to influence people without turning them off by being pushy. You know what happens when someone tries to maneuver or push you; an opposing reaction is the most common response. Learning how to be neutral allows people to buy (which we love) instead of being sold (which we hate).   
 
Your Inner Game
Balanced assertiveness, attuning to others and the ability to see and communicate the big picture are crucial aspects to building solid, lasting and profitable client relationships. These are the traits of successful individuals.

These are the fundamentals of building relationships. Just like pro athletes practice their basics everyday you would be wise to develop a regimen around these practices. This seminar is your start!

Who Should Attend
Sales and customer service managers, entrepreneurs and business owners, marketers and sales people, C-Suite executives, anyone in a service-related business, and all those who want to sell more now and in the future.

Relational Marketing Seminar
When you realize relationships are truly the foundation of your business you will see how concentrated learning in this area will help you as a person, as a sales professional and as a manager or leader.
