Let’s be honest, as an expert in your profession, selling is not something you ever wanted to do. Otherwise you would have wanted to be as sales person!.

The result? Frustration as you and your team spend longer than you should converting & signing up less ideal new clients than your ambition dictates.

We will help you identify your issues and show you how to sell more. We will work on a sales strategy, specifically for you and ensure you get the sales training to be able to use it.

It’s time to get ‘under the bonnet’ and help find the things in your firm that need improving. Then you will be able to achieve your ambitions for your firm.sales training mot is like a normal MOT, but less greasy

Your sales training MOT gives you

This structured sales MOT is more than just sales training. It is specifically designed for ambitious owners of small professional firms that are looking for the elusive £150k personal take home income.

After your Sales development MOT you will have:

  • A clear idea of how to get more clients to sign up
  • The confidence to get out there and sell, without worrying about selling
  • The knowledge of how to manage your team so they sign up more clients for you
  • A voucher worth £250 to spend with us on any of our coaching packages, such as our ‘Get more clients‘ programme.

How does the sales development MOT work?

  1. Arrange a no-obligation 30 minute consultation with one of our coaches. In this consultation, we will find out more about you and check the suitability of the structured sales MOT for you. If there is a good match, we will invite you to sign up for a structured sales MOT. We will also give you any more details about the sales training you want.
  2. Decide. If you decide on the call that you want to go for a structured sales MOT (or any other of our coaching packages), we will give you a 10% discount. The discount is only available for those people who commit to an MOT on the no-obligation consultation.
  3. Diagnosis. The next step is to complete a range of comprehensive diagnostic tools, which we will agree in advance based on your personal circumstances, such as our:
  • Marketing Process health check
  • Strategic Alignment test
  • Social Media profile check
  1. Get your results and identify priority action areas with your coach. We discuss the results of these diagnostics, with priority action areas identified. Our discussion will be delivered by Skype or over the phone, at a time convenient to you with one of our experienced coaches. In this session, your coach will help you identify your next steps, which may include working with one of our coaches to support you to address your priority areas.
  2. Decide on which of our coaching packages is suitable for you, if you want more help with implementation.

Be honest with yourself.

Could you, hand on heart, say you have the following in place and working effectively?

  • Sales process. Do you have a carefully crafted sales process to help you sell more without becoming a pushy sales person? A sales process that links to your client management system is a critical element of your growth.
  • Sales management system. Do you and your team use a tested, carefully planned, sales management system? Does it help you coordinate the activity with an appropriate client record system? Do you get measures and reports on conversion rates and results on a weekly basis?
  • Uniqueness. You have identified and persuasively articulated a Unique Buying Proposition to compel your ideal clients to work with you, rather than your competitors. Most importantly your entire team is using these strengths when meeting prospective clients.
  • Pricing confidence. You and your team are confident with the reasons that clients should pay the level of fees you seek and are rehearsed in dealing with price objections.

My confidence in sales has risen dramatically since meeting with Jon Baker. He made me realise there are ways around being thought of as a ‘pushy salesman’, which didn’t sit well with me. I am now much happier with the whole process of sales. Will Tebbs, Golf Professional
