    Name: Increase Sales by Building the Customer Relationship - A Dale Carnegie Seminar
    Date: May 17, 2017
    Time: 11:30 AM - 1:00 PM CDT
    Event Description:

    How do you get first-time customers and how do you get them to become repeat customers? Outdated sales tactics and gimmicks don’t work anymore. The internet, your website, and social media just make customers too savvy.

    When you work on building relationships your customer wins by getting the exact solution and service they need. You win by generating consistent sales through repeat customers. Join Greater Decatur Chamber of Commerce and Dale Carnegie Training for a Lunch and Learn to discover some ways you can create these win/win outcomes by building and maintaining customer relationships.

    • Understand the foundation of Relationship Selling
    • How to connect with People
    • Identify the Unique Selling Proposition of your solution & know when to use it
