Sell in High Definition™ – Become an Expert, Build Trust, Attract Business
Imagine after a few years in your sales job you've created a situation in which a substantial quantity of your sales come from prospects who learned about YOU and your product or service and CALL YOU to explore how you can meet their needs. Imagine your pipeline filled with leads from referrals and never having to make a cold call. Sound farfetched? It's more realistic than you might think when you Sell In High Definition™.
Salespeople who've reached this pinnacle have positioned themselves as experts, advisors, and problem solvers in their niche industry and have become masterful at building trusting relationships. They no longer chase the sale because they've built a reputation as a "go to" person who creates a differentiated customer experience, adds value and always does what's best for the customer. As a result, they become a "business and referrals magnet".
Attracting more customers rather than continually searching for them will require you think differently about how you now sell. You'll learn how to do that and more when you attend this high-energy session with proven ideas that will increase your sales and make you stand out from your competition. You'll discover how to:
- View what you do for a living from a totally new perspective
- Position and promote yourself as an expert and a "mini celebrity"
- Attract warm inquiries from prospects who are referred to you
- "Clone" your best customers and infiltrate your niche
- Pre-call plan effectively to increase your chances of winning the business
- Add value, educate, and be bold to advance the sale
- Critique your sales calls and avoid the most common pitfalls that repel customers
Serve In High Definition™ – Differentiate, Deliver Value and Delight Customers
To attract and retain loyal customers requires a lot more than a smile, a return call, and a thank you note. Good customer service is expected and no longer a differentiator. Has your attempt to create consistency and standards resulted in robotic or impassive conversations? Has your focus on growth overshadowed the voice of the customer?
To grow your business and stand out from the crowd, every employee and department must seek to add value, contribute, and create a memorable experience. In this action-packed program, Barb will give you a roadmap and proven ideas to:
- Increase staff engagement to bring your service and brand promise alive
- Break down silos and encourage collaboration between sales and support areas
- Provide additional value and stay top-of-mind with customers
- Get customer feedback and measure service easily
- Avoid the top three pitfalls that repel customers
- Most of all, inspire your staff to deliver genuine and attentive service!
Live and Work With Purpose and Significance
Faith, Values and Character-Building Programs
In today's consumer-driven, superficial, "what's in it for me" society, it's easy to lose sight of what really matters. We're bombarded with messages that promise wealth, beauty, prestige and happiness but in many cases lead us down a detrimental path of striving, stress and discontentment.
In the workplace, we can be so focused on career and advancement that we often forget how our actions and words influence our colleagues, customers and employees. We need to be reminded that as managers and leaders, it's a privilege to serve and lead our team. As individual contributors, it's a privilege to serve everyone who we come in contact with.
There is a more optimal measure of life and work. Imagine being worry-free and filled with purpose, peace, joy and gratitude despite your circumstances. Imagine a workplace where integrity, empathy and encouragement are valued and recognized. Sound too good to be true? This and much more is possible with a renewed mind and a transformed life.
On request Barb will tailor an inspirational message based on eternal principles, parables and values.
...be transformed by the renewing of your mind.
Value Added for EACH of the above programs
- Barbara Sanfilippo is not only a popular business motivational speaker but a respected consultant and coach to banks and credit unions. Here are some additional ways High Definition People® can work with your organization during or after Barbara's presentation to reinforce and sustain the message, get your attendees to actually apply the ideas, address issues that may impact results and better insure your ROI.
- Executive Debrief − In the course of learning a great deal about your company during her pre-speech preparation, Barbara gains valuable insights into issues that sometimes only an outsider can see. If you choose to do so, she will debrief your executive team on potential challenges, pitfalls to avoid and also provide solutions and proven ideas on how to address them.
- Tele-Coaching − Thirty to sixty days after Barb's presentation a highly interactive telecoaching call can be scheduled with a group of your attendees to maintain the momentum and instill accountability. The purpose is to review key principles, share successes in how they used ideas from the presentation and discuss any obstacles. Attendees are expected to prepare for the call and contribute to the facilitated discussion. These calls put the onus on participants to apply what they learned and prepare for the calls.
- Workshops − If improving a skill or getting specific results is a high priority, a keynote may not be the best format. Allotting more time with some application and discussion exercises can often improve sustainability. Any of Barbara's presentations can be turned into 2-3 hour workshop or what we call, a keynote/workshop blend.
- Consulting - After her keynote Barbara is also available on an as needed basis to assist with identifying challenges, avoiding pitfalls and recommending follow-up reinforcement.
