We will discuss the importance of understanding your own product and how customers buy from salespeople they trust. They also buy from salespeople that care. This relationship begins at the initial opportunity (the lead) and often results in repeat business through educating these potential customers of your product portfolio (and NOT sending a PDF of menus.) So Show Your Stuff!! We will tap into existing sales “tools” for effective, suggestive selling and discuss why it is crucial to inform your customer that you are knowledgeable, a logistical whiz and THE creative catering expert.
