How much does sales training cost a UK company with a sales team? It is one of those things that many companies try to brush under the carpet.
Due to the recession, many businesses in the UK feel that it is a luxury and the manager will do just as good a job as a trainer to motivate and inspire the troops.
However, are the sales staff getting the best techniques. Are they learning about objection handling, are they learning important negotiation skills?
It is all about building and equipping, it is more than just motivating staff, or reminding them that if they do not sell that they are out.
Would a general send a platoon into battle without proper building and equipment? Maybe in years gone by, but in today’s military, troops would be given proper preparation and supplies for the mission.
IT is needed in order to ensure that each person is able to sell your products or services to your customers.
Prices do vary from agency to agency, depending on their experience, their overheads and their profit margins.
A sole trader trainer (maybe an ex sales manager that has decided to get out of the rat race) may charge £500 a day for a team of 6 people.
A large training company may charge up to £1,000 a day for a team building event.
Sales training prices do vary, so it is wise to shop around and get an idea of prices before making a decision.
They will offer equipping on a whole range of topics (objection handling, lead generation, questioning skills, communication skills etc.) to meet most business requirements.
Smaller trainers may not have the resources or skills for certain selling topics, so shopping around is wise to find the best training company with the best track record.
