The first part of our Salesforce brand training lays out the brand’s promise and relation to its sales discussions. It convinces them as to why it is essential.

Salesforce brand training is essential. We share with them a condensed presentation of the quantitative research. The salesforce must understand where the rebranding got its grounding.

In the brand training for salespeople workshop, we remind the sales folks that the brand has more in common with selling than marketing. We ask them questions that show that tight connection. This helps us overcome the natural animosity salespeople have for marketing.

We show them how the rebranding is on their side. Remember that sales folks have first-hand knowledge of the customer. And, in many instances, the prospect as well. Because their relationship with customers and prospects is qualitative, the research salesforce brand trainingmay be jarring to them.

Personality Types

We believe it is vital for salespeople to analyze your market personalities from the research in brand training.

Individual personalities are significant in selecting and purchasing all products and services. salesforce brand trainingOur Salesforce brand training drives that point home. Each type is distinctive and requires a different approach.

Therefore, we show the sales reps cues to identify personality types. And how to craft sales messages specifically tailored to them. We roleplay with them. We show them photos of possible customers and have them identify the personality type.

We also have them identify their own type. This personal identification opens the gate of possibilities. We show them they naturally gravitate to like-personalities, leaving them uncomfortable with many other groups.

The Salesforce brand training provides the sales folks with tools to sell successfully to other types.

Training sales messages
