80-20 Sales Training
Almost all industry recognized and branded sales training methodologies have three key weaknesses:
- Too Narrow: In an industry driven by publishing sales and a franchise based training delivery model, it is imperative to develop a differentiated sales methodology to the exclusion of all others. This means that a lot of great material from competitive providers is overlooked and that the training insights rapidly become unnecessarily narrow.
- Too Theoretical: The drive to create voluminous branded material typically results in great insights being lost in less impactful material. There is a natural bias towards material that is theoretical (good for book sales) and almost all branded methodologies are light when it comes to delivering a simple, practical and repeatable play-book of strategies and tactics.
- Lack of Reinforcement: Research by Neil Rackham, the author of SPIN Selling, has shown that 87 percent of sales training content is forgotten by reps within thirty days.
80-20 is not constrained by a need to adhere to one prescribed methodology and our courses combine the best principles and tactical action points from a wide range of world renowned strategic sales methodologies.
80-20 Sales Training is also anchored by the practical experience gained by the firm’s Principals over two decades of selling complex solutions to C-Level executives at the world’s largest businesses. 80-20 team members have consistently been ranked as the top sales performers wherever they have worked. Our training courses represent a series of theoretical insights reinforced through role plays and references to existing sales funnel activities.
“80-20 worked with us to design a sales playbook that focuses on reframing our customers’ thinking and educating them on the unique opportunity associated with our solution. The combination of customized material, role plays and practical examples, delivered via energizing training sessions, has given us a blueprint for success.”
“Our social entrepreneurs have great ideas and tons of energy. After 80-20 Sales Training, their sales funnels grew exponentially and they now have the sales skills to match their passion for their business.”
