SMB Software Sales Training

For teams who sell either directly to end users, or via channel resellers, this course was developed for a global software leader for their EMEA team.

Selling to Enterprises

Developing the skills to sell to Enterprises means creating engagement strategies that get you closer to your decision makers and maintain their belief in you. Our programme is a proven method for achieving constant value and building on long term and high value sales.

It is also perfect for anyone wanting to sell to the Enterprise at a high level or with multi-level decision-makers.

Train the Coach

Supporting these modules we train managers in a simple and effective method to coach their teams around the principles. This makes sure that behavioural changes actually take place and that managers follow through the training with the right coaching questions.

Presentation Skills

Our two programmes for Presentation Skills are created to generate greater impact from each presentation given, and also to help individuals understand their own presentation style, and improve it.

Embedding Programmes

All of our training is embedded with a series of different interventions. These are Webinars, using the Adobe Connect system leaving a permanent URL for all participants and holders of the unique link. We run Conference Calls, develop online training blogs and also run questionnaires which illustrate and monitor behavioural change and improvement.

Testimonial from Adobe:

‘Reality Training have helped our EMEA Channel team to transform into an SMB sales organization and revitalized our approach to engage with SMBs. In the first quarter of working with us, they helped us to achieve challenging targets and made a difference of missing targets big time before the training to overachieving all set goals thereafter. They have spent quite some time to understand our business model and the opportunities for growth. I would recommend any Business Leader that faces this or a similar challenge to transform the team to contact Reality Training.’
Hardy Koehler, Head of SMB EMEA, Adobe.

Telesales Training Courses With Reality

Our 5 Principles Of Selling Course Develops Exceptional Telesales Skills… But Don’t Just Take Our Word For It

“Overall conversion has increased by 13% – Reality Training were definitely the major factor behind this increase”Darren Grahame-Betts, KUONI, Head of Call Centres and Operations.

Reality Training ‘cut their sales teeth’ in telesales. We spent years persuading people to buy, without meeting them, face to face. We were trained in AIDA, DIPIDA, STUNT and SPIN, LIP and SPIT, SING and BLAG. Ultimately, there are probably as many sales systems as there are departments, yet the principles of selling remain the same.

  • Service Industry Business owners – so they can train their Sales and Customer Service Managers
  • Colleagues who sell on the phone

Skills and Knowledge Covered In Our Telesales Courses

  • How to influence people over the phone
  • Effective questioning structures
  • How to handle both outgoing telesales calls and incoming enquiry based telesales

Training Outcomes

  • Increased conversion rates
  • Increased profitability drivers
  • Uncover any bad habits
  • New ordering of sales conversations for more effective calls.

Chat Training – Selling and Closing on the Internet

Where Persuasive Sales Language Transforms a Customer’s Online Experience

Multi-Channel selling is the new concept where retailers replicate customer service ethics via their stores, their call centres and their internet businesses. Internet Chat is increasingly used to help customers at various stages of their transaction and ultimately lower ‘abandon’ rates on different pages. Brands also need to be able to ‘close’ customers and offer additional information.

The skills required to master internet chat sales are almost the same as for face to face and telephone sales, but of course you have the use of neither.

Sales Agents need to be trained in:

1) Sales Principles and Timing – how are customers persuaded to buy? What are the important pieces of language that will be influential at the crucial research and ‘point of purchase’ stages?

2) Questioning and Product Knowledge – how to interest the customer in a positive way and find out what they need?

3) Objection Handling and Closing – persuasive techniques to check, challenge and prove value.

Our Chat training is a 2-4 day course which mirrors perfectly our proven Retail Sales Training and our Telesales Training. This sequence of programmes, coupled with board and management sessions, makes sure that your whole brand develops consistent and up-to-date customer service standards, fit for the multi-channel demands your customers expect.

This module is also taken with remote coaching sessions for team leaders and agents, as well as train-the-trainer and train-the-coach modules so you can roll-out this programme as your chat department grows.

‘We have fully embraced the principles and have now changed our philosophy to align with the Reality sales principles, it is our way forward’

Karen Samuelson – Director of Offline Sales – Travelocity

” The feedback and the quality of work we have seen since the training has been fantastic.”

Clair Boon,  Thomson (TUI UK)

Reality Business and Executive Coaching

Bob Morrell and Jeremy Blake have been working with Salespeople and Managers for 15 years. Over that time they have developed several effective coaching models, which they use to train coaches in parallel with the Reality Training programmes, and also employ them to coach senior and middle executives.

Executive Coaching gives you access to independent, confidential and innovative techniques that will inspire, develop and support your professional growth.

The format is simple and effective. Reality establish key goals, and spend time working towards them. They allocate time on the telephone, Skype or face to face, to use coaching conversations to take executives from where they are, to where they want to be.

In the last seven years, Reality Coaches have worked with Senior Executives from large Business Media organisations, Global IT companies, Training and Development teams, and have coached managers in the United States and India.

We have one rule, which makes a real difference. Once you engage in a coaching programme and your time is allocated, it becomes ‘A’ time!

Media Sales Training

Media Sales Training has changed over the last ten years. When we began, working with regional newspapers and business titles, there was still, amazingly, a wariness of the digital world. Over the next few years our focus changed from straightforward media sales techniques to developing the way individuals sold their solutions, moving from cross platform advertising, to digital only campaigns.
Media Sales Training in the modern world is about the understanding of how modern marketing works, and that is a subject that is changing all the time.

Media Sales Training is the single most effective intervention you can make to increase sales in the short term. Companies that engage in sustained development programmes hold on to their talent for longer, in a highly competitive marketplace.

3 Reasons why you should use Reality Training to deliver Media Sales Training Programmes

1) We sold media for many years with leading brands such as UBM, Ziff Davis, Yellow Pages and Expedia. We train teams from B2B, B2C, National and Regional Press and Digital Brands.

2) Our book ‘The Death of Late Space – Your Guide to Success in Media Sales’ (2nd Edition) is the only book of its type and is now available on Kindle!

3) We deliver Media Sales Training programmes to larger groups – so you can get your sales force through our training more quickly and immediately see and experience the effect.

Media Sales Training clients include EMAP, UBM, William Reed, DMG, Newsquest, Travel Weekly, Aceville and the IOD.

We have a new series of Media Sales Training Programmes for 1,2 and 3 day courses. These courses cover but are not limited to:

  • Media Sales Training Induction
  • Account Management Training
  • The Reality Sales Structure for Media Sales
  • Rate Card Training (literally, a re-introduction to your advertising rates)
  • Media Sales Management – Inspiring and Managing a Media Sales Team
  • Media Recruitment
  • Presentation Skills
  • Digital Media Sales Training – see seperate page

When we meet you we will develop bespoke training content for you. When we have a clear understanding of your issues and objectives we make sure the training content we develop helps you to reach your goals. Our Pre Training Survey to every delegate adds still further to the development of the training content. We ask each individual questions to give them the opportunity of sharing with us prior to the training programme their major challenges.

An essential element of our Media Sales Training is making sure our delegates understand the fundamentals of marketing. There is little point trying to sell advertising in any medium, or exhibition space, or sponsorship if you can’t work out the value of the marketing proposition for the customer.

What do we charge for Media Sales Training? Whatever our fees are (they’re reasonable) they are nowhere near as high as the cost of having a salesforce who are NOT performing as they should. Neither are they as high as the recruitment costs to replace top talent!

Digital Media Sales Training

While it’s important to understand the nuts and bolts of all things digital, at the heart of our training is the sales conversation you need to have every time you engage with a client. We’ll show you how to structure a conversation that will build a relationship with a client that will bring you greater sales – consistently.

You’ll be training with one of the first companies to offer Digital Media Sales Training. We’ve been there and done it – as Account Director at Expedia and Major Account Manager at Yell.com, so our knowledge of training comes direct from the coal face (so to speak). We are perfectly placed to advise larger media brands and regional businesses.

Who is it for?

Anyone who is currently involved in digital media sales.

Anyone who recognises digital media for the opportunity it presents but doesn’t know how to capitalise on it or maximise the profits from it.

Sales Directors, Managers, Account Managers and Sales Executives.
