Product Description

Sales Essentials Test Drive

The Test Drive is a cross section of The Sales Essentials Online Learning Programme.

The Sales Essentials Online Learning Programme is built off the back of the Barrett Sales Essentials Transformation Programme, which is the first VET accredited, university endorsed sales programme in Australia (that can provide a Diploma in Business, a Certificate IV in Business Sales and/or Certificate IV in Business Administration).

Some things you need to know about Sales Essentials Online Learning Programme:

  1. The purpose of Sales Essentials Online Learning Programme is to help you develop the fundamental knowledge, skills and mindset of successful sales professionals without compromising your personal integrity.
  2. Sales Essentials Online Learning Programme is NOT a series of lectures where you listen and watch and we talk, nor is it a textbook online. It is an 8 module programme that is designed to be applied and interacted with in real life. It is where you can learn about the real world of selling, WHY it is important to you, and HOW to apply selling fundamentals in your career. The modules are designed to give you a mix of learning modes i.e. podcasts, written text, videos, questionnaires, quizzes, worksheets, templates and role plays, which are designed to cater for a wide range of learning styles.
  3. Each module will take approximately 2-3 hours to complete and can be done in one or in several sittings. The content of each module is designed to be practical and applied in the field drawing on the business strategy, messaging, value proposition, customer, competitor, and market information of your organisation to ensure that it is always working in concert with the goals of the business.
  4. Sales Essentials Online Learning Programme will allow you to reflect on your own situation and then create and customise new content that you can use and apply in real life to help you make more sales, generate more revenue and develop healthy, viable client relationships.
  5. All worksheets and templates can be saved and stored for ongoing use and practical application in the field. We also continue adding tools and apps to our Sales Essentials shop.
  6. Sales Essentials Online Learning Programme is designed by an international team with a global market place in mind. Specific cultural nuances withstanding, the programme is designed to provide people with access to the core sales principles, processes, tools, and fundamentals that are common in 21st century sales across a global marketplace.
