In 4 fast-paced hours, attendees learn the meaning of The Art of Marketing The Hard Soft-Sell.
Soft Selling is a passive manner that does not jar the prospect... primarily because the the prospect is moving at his/her
own pace. For example, "Call me if you ever have a need," is Soft-Sell. While perhaps genteel in approach, it
does not generate revenue on your terms.
Hard Selling is the constant application of pressure to make the sale at a pace which generally does not meet the prospect's
tempo or preference. Manipulative techniques to trap, or embarrass, are examples of Hard Sell. The comment, "as
any intelligent person can see," is an example of hard sell. While aggressive in approach, it does not generate revenue
on your prospect's terms or needs. Therefore, it is destructive to you in the long-run.
Hard, Soft-Selling integrates the above approaches in a manner that assertively qualifies "suspects," prioritizes "prospect,"
and moves these "keepers" to client status through a structured marketing-mix approach which considers the strengths and weaknesses
of you, your product or service, and prospect. Presented in a Q & A format, The Art of Marketing the Hard Soft-Sell
is a tour-de-force of marketing, sales, and negotiating essentials.
