Are your salespeople faltering with 75% of their prospects and customers? Research shows that salespeople only connect well with 25% of customers. This means strong customer relationships are never built with the other 75%, leaving needs unmet and lost deals.

Studies have shown that salespeople can improve their performance by more than 50% by using the skills of Versatility. Versatility allows salespeople to adapt their selling approach to the customer’s buying approach, maximize their social selling capabilities, and create a more engaging customer experience.

This webcast will describe how your salespeople can improve their versatility to build stronger customer relationships and improve sales performance. As a result of attending this session, you will learn how to:
  • Use Versatility to improve sales effectiveness
  • Identify customers’ buying style and how best to engage them
  • Quickly build rapport with customers and prospects of all levels
  • Communicate persuasively with any type of customer
