The Antalis Academy Moving Away From Commodity Print Sales Workshop

Who’s the course for?

This workshop is aimed at sales people who are looking to make a move into solutions selling. The strategies in this workshop are ideally suited to products such as web to print, workflow management solutions or cross media solutions. If you are not selling these services, this workshop is unlikely to be for you.

Workshop details

This is part of a series of 5 workshops delivered by Matthew Parker that are designed to give practical advice and training to printers and print management companies.

 

 These days, everyone is being told to stop selling print

Being a printer is no longer enough. It’s hard to interest buyers if you just put ink on paper. If you want to make money you need to start selling solutions. You need to rebrand your company as a marketing services provider. You should be telling your customers all about your web to print solutions and how you can create great multichannel marketing campaigns.

The trouble is, it’s a lot easier to talk about this than to do it. Selling these sorts of services requires a very different mindset to selling ink on paper.

 

How do you sell these solutions to a prospect who has never heard of multichannel marketing?

There are companies that sell solutions highly effectively. I have spent considerable time researching some of these companies. Matthew has studied the strategies that they’re using. He has looked at why they are effective and has also been spending time working out exactly how these can be applied in the print industry (because unfortunately, very few of these companies come from the printing sector.)

Now he has created a system using these strategies. Any printing company can put this system into practice.

 

Announcing the Moving Away From Commodity Print workshop

In this workshop you learn how to create proposals that work for print solution sales.  You will learn how to increase conversion rates and sell at higher prices.  You’ll also learn how to create great, long-lasting customer relationships.

That means you’ll have a much higher chance of getting your customer to say yes.  You’ll be able to book more business at higher profit margins.  Your company will have more customers.  And you’ll receive more commission.

 

What will you learn?

The day will focus on three main topics:

  1. Creating value

Many prospects (and many sales people) do not value the true worth of what you are selling. It is often assumed that solutions such as web to print should be given away for nothing in order to get print business. In this section of the workshop you will learn about the concept of price anchoring. Price anchoring allows you to raise prices. You’ll discover how to use it.

2. Selling products

Most companies sell solutions as a service. The trouble is that this can make it very confusing for a customer. You will learn why it is important to set out your services as a product. You will also learn the yes-yes principle: this strategy allows you to easily raise prices by 10% or more.

3. Customer journeys

How do you get customers to stay loyal and to continue valuing what you offer? You’ll discover how to achieve this by using upsell paths.

At the end of the workshop you’ll be able to set out an effective proposal for added value services. Customers will understand and buy into what you are offering. You’ll also understand how to charge more for these services. You will have a strategy for keeping your customers for longer.

 

You will also learn

  • How Apple makes so much profit in a commodity market and how you can do the same
  • Why you should use exactly the same techniques that many law firms do when they are negotiating compensation for their clients
  • The sort of buyers that you should be targeting
  • Why most customers cannot set a price and how this helps you
  • Why you should stop offering the customer everything at once
  • What are customer journeys and why you should be creating them
  • A practical action plan to make sure you plan your sale in the right way

 

Here are the details of the workshop

This is a full day workshop.  Attendance is limited to a maximum of eight participants.  This ensures that all attendees receive plenty of personal attention and that there is sufficient time to discuss the issues raised.

  • All delegates will receive a pre-workshop e-mail briefing.
  • Everyone will work on practical exercises throughout the day.  They will learn by putting theory into practice.
  • Pdf notes are also provided from the day.
  • There is a 30-day e-mail help line after the event.
