Advice On Sales Training Ideas
New sales training ideas don’t just fall out of the sky. I wish they did because it would make my job so much easier. Instead, it takes a lot of observations and time in the field to develop new sales training ideas. For that reason, I wrote this article on sales training ideas and I hope you’ll use this advice to further your sales career.
New sales training ideas take time to be developed for many reasons. Once a concept is identified, it has to be tested in the field to see if in fact, they generate the desired results with sales prospects. Those field tests often lead to modifications and once again, those modifications have to be field-tested. This is why I said you just can’t pull sales training ideas out of thin air. Testing reminds me that I’ll make the mistakes so that my students can avoid them. If a sales trainer isn’t testing new concepts in the field, that sales trainer is teaching concepts that were developed in some classroom. How well do you think that will work?
I’m not a sales trainer that develops silly concepts that look good on paper but never work in the field. Instead, I get my sales training ideas from studying the best practices of the top sales professionals. I study the top pros because month after month, you’ll find their names on the top of the ranking reports. They must be doing something right and when I discover something, a new sales training idea is born. Uncovering new sales training ideas is exciting but you must be sure these new sales training ideas work successfully in the field. So, the testing and refining is a continuous ongoing effort.

Many corporate sales trainers struggle to uncover sales training ideas. All too often, they deliver the same handful of programs week after week. For that reason, it’s difficult for them to stay sharp and crisp. I have some advice for them on where they may uncover a few new sales training ideas…
I’d start my search for new sales training ideas by interviewing a few of my existing accounts. I’d ask these accounts a few simple questions.
- Why did you decide to buy from us?
- What do you perceive is our added value?
- What benefits are you deriving from our product or service?
- What do you feel is our competitive advantage?
This valuable information should be incorporate into your prospecting message. How’s that for a sales training idea!
The next place I’d look for new sales training ideas is with my top sales reps. Spend time with them in the field and understand the approach they take with new prospects. We know what they are doing works so every rep could benefit from discovering the best practices of the top reps in your sales organization.
Last, but far from least, I’d interview some decision makers that decided to go with the competition. Yes, interview them and understand where you went wrong. Don’t be lazy and just rely on some Lost Order Reports. Actually, interview those decision makes and uncover what went wrong. Develop a corrective action sales training program and bingo… You have a new sales training idea.
