    With John Visconti

    CEU, CPDT 1, IAABC 1, KPA 1

    You've worked hard to acquire your skill set as a dog trainer. If you're anything like the dozens of trainers I have met, you've spent thousands of dollars on school tuition, books, seminars, DVDs, equipment, incorporation, insurance, and more.

    Yet, if you're also like the dozens of trainers I have met, your business isn't performing anywhere near your expectations and needs. Additionally, the sales process is likely one that causes you discomfort; anxiety and frustration.

    The key to running a successful training business, though, is to first embrace your primary responsibility of proactive selling. The philosophy of "build it and they will come" is a one way ticket out of the field of dog training.

    Learning Objectives:

    • You'll be inspired to sell your services.
    • You'll stop feeling uncomfortable when informing customers about your pricing and asking them to pay for your services.
    • You'll be motivated to talk to prospects - yes, you'll actually be looking forward to incoming calls on your business phone.
    • Prospects will be thrilled that they are going to have the chance to work with you - so will their dogs.
    • You'll be able to have a positive impact on more owners and their dogs.
    • You'll make more money and have more fun while doing so.

    Professionals invest substantially in their websites, logos, marketing, branding etc. but unless they possess excellent sales skills, their ability to convert prospective interest into clients is extremely limited.

    Webinar Objectives

    • Bust myths about sales.
    • Remove barriers that lead to sales avoidance behavior.
    • Define the importance of sales even in this age of websites and social media.
    • Identify ways to channel sales-related anxiety.
    • Build sales through differentiation, emotional connection and value added benefits.
