Part of Innovate New Albany’s TIGER Workshops Series:

Your early stage company offers great products and/or great services. And people you meet consistently praise what you’ve created. So why is it still so hard to build a solid base of customers and drive sales growth?

As the internet has gained in sophistication, sales training tools and CRM systems are more robust and more accessible than ever. Shouldn’t that make it easier to build your team’s sales skills and win business from potential customers more consistently?

Unfortunately, most startups still struggle to reach their revenue goals. Leaders of companies with the drive and ingenuity to create the most valuable innovations, build the newest technologies, and offer the best customer service frequently do not enjoy selling and lack the experience to be effective sales leaders. Despite all of this, sales must be a priority for startups to succeed – and even sales novices can dramatically improve their companies’ selling effectiveness .

Sales execution expert, Brian Pitzer will provide hands-on tools to grow your sales, even while you continue to focus on what you are most passionate about in your company (not sales!)

Pitzer will help you:

  • Differentiate your company, product, and service strengths v. your competition.
  • Use your rivals’ sales aggressiveness to showcase your company’s superiority.
  • Stop selling products and start selling solutions.
