Overcome Price Wars: Add Value
2020 is near approaching, and demands—now, more than ever— that promotional products companies add unique, creative,and passionate value to the sales process. We must over-service our accounts, make their lives simpler, give them headache relief and take stress off of their shoulders. We must anticipate their needs before they occur, and we must be seen by our clients as interactive partners (shoulder to shoulder) not transactional vendors (price-based and across the table ). Price is price, but value is the combination of price, plus goods/services, plus you. Learn how to navigate our loud and small-attention-span world, and how to break through it; the imporance of value versus price selling, and how to sell value; and how to aim for interactiev partners, not transactional vendors. Seats are first-come first-served for this session.
