Overview

If you work in a small business, you have to know how to sell. Full stop. But selling as most people know it doesn’t work anymore. It’s relationships that count.

Real selling is about understanding customers’ goals and helping them to buy, not topping off a template presentation with a pushy attitude. So how do you put relationships first and still get results?

Sales Therapy smashes the age-old sales model with an effective new approach grounded in behavioural psychology. It is natural and effortless to use because it mirrors the way people actually interact with each other. And it really works.

Thomas Power, Chairman of Ecademy, describes it as ‘One of the finest pieces of content on how to sell better in the 21st Century.’

At last, you can commit those terrible ‘closing techniques’ to the recycle bin. Sales Therapy will help you build great relationships with your customers while making the art of selling fun and effective and helping your business to grow.
