How To Sell Vol 1

Now is the time to sell more niche products that can boost revenues year-round.

This highly insightful eGuide, “How to Sell Volume 1,” shares actionable strategies for how you can increase sales of skid steers, chippers & shredders and wood stoves — products that are gaining in popularity among rural lifestylers — and it’s FREE!

Dear Dealer,

There are two things all of us know about sales in the rural equipment market: maintaining a steady stream of sales revenue in the offseason is very difficult and rural lifestylers are often unfamiliar with the more complicated equipment they need to keep their larger properties looking their best.

It may be easy to sell equipment in early spring when rural lifestylers are eager to get outside and commercial customers are gearing up for new projects. But, how do you continue selling when the colder weather is driving your customers inside — and their machines into storage?

And what about equipment that doesn’t sell itself, like a lawn mower or a chain saw? Your salespeople may be struggling with how to sell more complicated categories of equipment and may be bypassing those products for a quicker sale, stifling revenue growth in the process.

To help you and your sales team learn new selling strategies, we’ve hand-picked several of the most informative stories from our popular “How to Sell” series from our print magazine into an eGuide – and we’ve made it absolutely FREE to get it into the hands of as many dealers as possible in a time when every potential sale counts.
