‘Flipping Objections on the Spot!’

Objection handling is a skill that all sales people need to master. Ryan will highlight the six most common objections media sales people face on a daily basis and show you how to flip those objections into closed deals with ease and style. Because Ryan sells every day, thse objections and scenarios are timely, relevant, and practical. Ryan will dig deep into objections like, “I’m moving all my advertising to social media.” And, “I am not seeing ROI from print.” And, “Why don’t you just write and article about my company?” This workshop is designed to give sales reps at all levels the skills they need to walk into any conversation with an advertiser with confidence.
