WEBINAR: IT IS YOUR CUSTOMER SERVICE DUTY TO UP SELL!

Don't just be Customer Service Reps, also be a Sales Person!

Customer service is important to your business because it is often the only contact a customer has with you. When they have a question or product issue, they expect your customer service department to resolve their issues. AND LET'S NOT FORGET, while your customers are on the phone, it is your customer service duty to up sell, but knowing the right time to do this is key.

During this webinar with Sales Guru, Leslie Groene, she will discuss:

  • Effective listening and phone etiquette
  • Manage the Relationship Not Just the Project
  • What do clients really want in a provider?
  • Why clients stop buying from your company
  • Statistics about what drives clients away...make sure you are aware of how your service and attitude affects your clients!

These presses have been featured in many movies and Westerns, including The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962), Have Gun Will Travel (1957), even John Boy’s Press on The Waltons (1971). More modern rentals include TV’s Gilmore Girls (2004), NCIS (2010), Seven Pounds (2008), and the critically acclaimed film Inception (2010). Guests will have a chance to print a special “Newsies Banner” keepsake on the actual press rented for the cult hit Newsies (1992).

The Fair is suitable for all ages. General admission is $10 for adults and $5 for kids under 12 years of age. Students, educators, enthusiasts, collectors, typophiles, bibliophiles, graphic designers, artists, and professionals will enjoy the varied demonstrations and array of vendors.
