Inside Sales Training Ideas that Transform Counter Salespeople into Master Sellers

Inside-Counter Sellers “make the world go round.” They are the glue and the lubricant of any sales organization. Why?

These Team Members interface with all of our customers and coordinate with Outside Sellers, Management, operations and vendors. Because of these folks, orders are taken, processed, fulfilled and delivered. Inventory is done, stock is replenished and important “market intel” is shared. These people frequently are the “bench-strength” who become the Outside Sellers and Managers of tomorrow. Or, they represent continuity and trusted confidantes for our customers. That’s right – it could be said that the entire operation rests on the shoulders, hands and minds of the Inside-Counter Sellers.

At the same time, though, and with a little “TLC,” they can rise to another level. Perhaps a “ride-along” with an Outside Seller or in-person visits to the offices of our largest clients can propel Inside-Counter personnel further than ever imagined.

How can this be accomplished? How much better can they be? And, how much real work will it take? That is where our Sales Training sessions come in. With our ideas and strategy, your Inside Sales Team will up its game in no time.
