Frequently Asked Questions about Sales Training in Melbourne

Is sales training effective?

Well, it depends! If you run sales training annually, your staff will probably be inspired and work well for a full month or so… And then revert back to old habits. As a result, your investment will be wasted.

Effective sales training needs to be reinforced on a regular basis. We at Sales Ethos believe it should be run regularly. Consequently, lessons are drip-fed, allowing for maximum absorption and application.

Another major factor for sales training effectiveness comes down to individuals. Are they open to learning new ideas and adapting to changing trends? If not, sales training will have little impact. In that event, you may want to consider re-assigning them!

From Good to Great

Are your sales consultants “B” or “C” performers? If so, sales training may help bridge the gap to turn them into “A” players.

Sales as a Service

Are your customer service staff responsible for selling? Are they struggling to do so? In our experience, these people can make a big difference. Simply teach them selling fundamentals. Consequently, they will discover opportunities that previously went unnoticed.

Sales training is most effective when continuously reinforced. After all, it is in our nature to forget and revert back to old habits. Firstly, regular sales coaching fine-tunes the approach. Secondly, systematic implementation ensures application. Finally, continuous reinforcement will all help you to get the most from your investment.

How do I choose which sales training company to use?

There are many great courses for sales training in Melbourne. We have great respect for them. Consequently, we believe each has their own unique way of contributing to the sales profession. To answer this question, we’d like to offer three main criteria for you to evaluate and narrow your options:

How to Choose Sales Training in Melbourne tip #1: Aligned values

Look for a company that values the same things you do. The sales training must fit the culture of your organisation. As a result, you will to ensure mutual achievement of goals. Furthermore, this alignment ensures better uptake and application. Ask yourself – “Does this company’s vision resonate with ours?” In addition, ask “Will their advice fit with our core beliefs?” If the answer is “no” to either of these, you may benefit from exploring other alternatives.

How to Choose Sales Training in Melbourne tip #2: Accountability for results

Making big claims and promises is easy. Fulfilling them is not! Consequently, ask “How will we know your training is working?” And, “How can the vendor reduce my risk if things don’t work out?” It can be difficult to measure the effectiveness of sales training. Therefore, you may want to implement qualitative and quantitative feedback. Firstly, qualitative feedback this means asking for your sales consultants’ opinions. Secondly, quantitative measures ensure you are receiving a return on your investment. These are usually sales revenue and activities.

How to Choose Sales Training in Melbourne tip #3: Proven Methodologies

Sales training needs to be motivating and practical. Consequently, trainers need to be able to prove that their advice works. For example, they may use case studies or evidence-based research. Questions you may want to ask include “Where do you source your training materials?” And, “What results have you achieved with similar companies?” Choose a vendor that has proven results. Finally, make sure they have based their training on proven methodologies.
