Sales Mentoring with Think Wow
We work with organisations that want ongoing help with their sales process, sales confidence levels, or wider sales strategy. We help you move away from one-off transactional sales, to a sales approach that helps you grow your share of wallet, and build long-term relationships with your customers.
Because our sales approach has customer experience strategy at it’s foundation, it helps you strengthen existing relationships, grow loyalty within your customer base and also utilise your happy customers to make attracting new customers that little bit easier.
With a Think Wow sales mentor you will not only grow in confidence when it comes to your sales approach, you’ll also shake off any residual negativity you might subconsciously feel about ‘selling’ and embrace the huge potential to build trust, deliver a better experience to your customers with every sale, and as a result – win more business!
Through a combination of structured learning, advice, and constructive criticism, sales mentoring will help improve the sales success of any person committed to making an investment in their own performance (from experienced sales people to brand new sales reps).
Our mentoring service is perfect for:
We work with you to understand your organisation, your continuous professional development objectives and, through our sales mentoring, we work to equip you and your sales team with the expertise and new techniques you need to grow revenue, and feel confident when selling.
A good sales mentor works with sales managers, business development teams, sales team members, or even the MD of a new business, to ensure that your sales activities add real value to your business. Too many mentors are focused on buzzwords and ‘foolproof systems’, but we’ll make sure your performance is measured in a way that makes sense for you and your business, so that you know you aren’t just ‘spinning the wheels’.
Whatever you want the focus of our time together to be, we set aside a fixed number of hours each month to help your business achieve its customer goals.
If you’re considering mentors, we’d love to help!
Still on the fence?
Mentoring can increase staff happiness, motivation and retention, and enhance levels of confidence within developing talent.
Working with Think Wow can help your business to gain fresh perspectives with external expertise, help with innovation, structure and your overall approach to selling.
We’ve found that it’s often the case that an employee will feel more comfortable to admit knowledge gaps or areas of concern to a mentor who doesn’t manage their day to day workload or have any input in promotion opportunities.
Our mentors provide a regular, safe and encouraging space for our clients to connect with an expert at the top of the profession, who can help build tools, relationship building skills, as well as a broader strategic awareness, at a comfortable pace and with a learning style tailored to their needs.
What happens once you're ready for mentoring?
We’ll start by understanding where you and your company are in terms of a sales processes, confidence levels and your current share of wallet with key clients. If you have them, we’ll focus on helping you reach your objectives. If you haven’t created a strategy or objectives yet then we’ll work with you to design and implement one. Remember, it’s your time to use how you want!
We’ll usually recommend that we meet once a week to maintain momentum. This can either be by phone, video call or, for local clients, it can even be face to face. Each sales mentoring meeting typically lasts an hour and we take a person-centred approach, making sure any content we cover is tailored to your learning style.
If you’re ready to get started, we’d love to talk to you!
