    Getting a ton of customer reviews is great. But if you don't have a way to analyze them for patterns and trends, you're missing out on some business-changing data. Artificial intelligence now offers a fast, efficient, and cost-effective way to unlock insights from your reviews, highlighting trends and customer pains automatically. That means you can focus your time on solving customer issues instead of chasing them down, and learn what it takes to delight, surprise, and keep your customers coming back.

    Join this VB Live event to learn how AI, natural language processing, and machine learning can help you become more customer-focused, turn good feedback into great product, improve the areas that need your attention, uncover what really matter to your customers, and more.

    Registration is free!

    You'll learn:
    *How to find themes in your customer reviews so that you can fix the real pain points instead of putting "band-aids" on each unhappy customer

    *Steps to guide your business decisions around what your customers say they want, not what you think they want

    *The importance of addressing your most common negative issues first to see an immediate change in your customer satisfaction level

    *The concept of always improving your customer experience - searching for trends in your good reviews to turn them into great reviews

    The Inner Game of Prospecting: How to Overcome Sales Call Reluctance
    Connie Kadansky, The Sales Call Reluctance Expert Recorded: Oct 15 2019 48 mins
    We all know that you cannot sell to someone you cannot get in to see.
    Many sales trainers and managers give the glib advice of "just pick up the phone."
    Well, for many salespeople, that advice just doesn't cut it.
    Sales Call Reluctance is an emotional hesitation to initiate contact with potential buyers. It is fear, which is a mental response to a perceived threat. The good news is that it is a learned habit. You can unlearn it. Our habits are written in our bodies. Trying to overcome Call Reluctance mentally does not work in the long run. To become confident lead generators who are unstoppable, you need to involve your whole being, which includes your body posture, your emotions, and your language. When you are prospecting, your emotions are controlling the show.

    You will learn:

    1.The four different body postures that will positively influence your lead generation.
    2.The emotions and feelings that stop most salespeople from being their best and what to do about them. You will learn how to navigate through the emotions of prospecting.
    3.The internal language that can shift your focus and attention while prospecting and also on your sales calls.

  • Motivating Millennials
    Motivating Millennials
    Nazma Qurban, Chief Revenue Officer, Cognism Nov 28 2019 2:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    In 2017, millennials comprised 35% of the UK workforce. By 2020, they are projected to represent an astounding 50% of the total global workforce.

    They bring wants and needs which differ greatly to previous generations, and hold more bargaining power than ever before in the labour marketplace.

    With that in mind, companies and business leaders need to be made aware of how to harness that power in their favour. Nazma Qurban, Chief Revenue Officer at Cognism, has built a high-performing sales team that is made up of 98% millennials.

    In this inspiring and insightful webinar, Nazma will demonstrate how to motivate millennials – by being a mentor, not a manager.

  • Show Me the Money
    Show Me the Money
    Bonnie Low-Kramen, International Speaker and Bestselling Author Recorded: Oct 2 2019 64 mins
    Let’s talk money. No more taboos, secrets, or stigma, just facts and strategies. We have no choice. If we keep going with the status quo, it will take 208 years to get to equality. I don’t have that kind of time, do you?

    This webinar will be a bad news/great news hour. The bad news is that the stress about money can be overwhelming. Very few women ever get formal negotiation skills training that could be applied to terms of employment. Too many women are underpaid and do not know what their role is actually worth in their market. The great news is that Bonnie Low-Kramen is determined to fix that and she has the success stories to prove she can.

    This webinar is for anyone who has a stake in today’s workplace. That means professional women, manbassadors, managers, students, human resources professionals, and recruiters. After all, real change in our workplace is going to take all of us – women and men. This webinar will be mind-opening and could be your catalyst for action.

    As the CEO of You, Incorporated, it’s time to address the financial wellbeing of your “company.” Are you ready to make the money that you deserve?

    A multi-touch, multi-channel sales and marketing process will always prove the most successful. Yes, that means cold calling and social both and can work seamlessly. But how do they integrate and how do you ensure success?

    This webinar will be focused on the full spectrum of sales and marketing mix available. Taking you right through the customer journey and how to ensure prospects remain engaged.

    Should you be doing a bit of everything? Or are you better doing a small amount really well? And if you’re only going to embark on an ambitious sales and marketing plan, what are the options that give you the biggest return?

    But what happens when the prospect disappears of the face of the earth? Or if an MQL doesn’t qualify to an SQL? Or even once a prospect becomes a customer. How do you build a process that maximizes your revenue opportunities across the customer or buyer journey?

    Well, that’s what we’ll explore.

    Key Takeaways

    •Which channels are you forgetting?
    •Which channels do you need to explore further?
    •Where are your customers?
    •How are you ensuring every engagement has the maximum opportunity to produce the most value?
    •Where’s the hole in your marketing and sales process?
    •How to successfully integrate sales and marketing processes, to deliver revenue

    Reasons to Attend:

    Some sales philosophies will tell you that - if you follow a simple formula – customers will never interrupt your presentation with an objection.

    But that’s just nonsense.

    And - contrary to popular belief - prospects aren’t sitting in darkened rooms trying to invent new fiendish ways to stop you from selling your stuff.
    If people regularly tell you;

    • that you’re too expensive - or
    • that they’re already happy with their current supplier – or
    • they’ve had problems with your company in the past - or
    • your lead time is too long

    Then you need to jump on to this webinar so that I can share with you how to overcome every single objection that you’ll ever hear.

    Key Takeaways

    Everyone who attends will walk away with this tool box of sales gold;

    • How to overcome every genuine sales objection – including those based on price
    • The names of the four headline objection types and the silver bullet that takes each one of them down
    • The three reasons that salespeople fail to overcome the most difficult customer objections – and what to do about them

    How To Help Employees Find Meaning In Work
    Andre Andersen, Motivational Guide and Trainer Dec 3 2019 11:00 am UTC 45 mins
    Reasons to Attend:

    Leading yourself or others, it doesn’t matter. At the end of each day, we are all looking for meaning and purpose for what and why we get out of bed every morning.

    It's an important aspect that impacts our daily lives.

    As a business and leader, you play an instrumental role in helping your employees finding purpose, and it should start with your business being 'purpose-driven' instead on 'product/solution' driven.

    Many employees feel that they are just working for a paycheck and aren’t contributing to the greater good of society.

    Without a sense of purpose, it’s difficult for employees to connect with their work and their company. Working with a sense of purpose boosts employee motivation, productivity, morale, and overall job satisfaction.

    Key Takeaways

    - What is purpose or meaning?
    - How do I find it?
    - How can I help others to find it?
    - Why should I care?

    Something they didn't tell you in Sales Manager Training 101... YOU are in charge of sales culture. But what does that even mean? What are you supposed to do? And how can one person create a culture for their team inside a larger organization?

    We'll tackle all these questions and more so you can drive sales productivity AND create the environment you want for your sales team. We'll also talk about the downside of not intentionally setting your own sales culture (spoiler alert: you don't want to invite these issues!).
