 Major Account Development Strategies

  Course Code - BC-303 - 2 Days

'Major Account Development Strategies' is an advanced course that examines day-to-day and strategic sales issues within very competitive markets. It addresses attitudes to new customer/existing account development and how to 'maximise' business potential by developing professional concepts and strategies for improved selling. In other words, it teaches sales people to be professional business partners with their customers.



The objectives of the course are to build on the current critical selling skills of your staff and to provide them with the concepts and strategies for improved (and more professional) selling to existing customer accounts. The course also shows how this approach can be critical even after the first 'cold call' to a potential new account thereby creating the best chance for new account gain.
