Funding Tuesday Webinar Series: No Sales, No Glory

When starting a company, you start with little more then yourself and your ideas.

It is  quite likely that the first people you hire will be sales people. Without sales, your company does not have a proven business model.
Almost everything in life is a numbers' game. Whether it is your chances in finding the right opportunity, life partner, business partner, winning the lottery or losing it all - your chance of success can only grow if you add more to the funnel.
And this is most definitely true of sales. Not that preparation and planning aren't equally important though.
This webinar, the penultimate in our series of 15, shares tips & tricks to really understand and execute sales. It will show you how to develop a sales strategy, how to set up your marketing story, your strategy and your product development. We will also talk about rewarding your sales people, and how to manage them. Ofcourse all supported with real life examples and case studies.

Dear All,

Thank you all for your registration and attending our Funding Tuesday Webinar! It was a huge success with overwhelming positive reactions! 

We spoke about the importance of sales. Somehow, sales always ends up on the to-do last. A lot of startups and founders hate sales. They rather delegate that to someone else. But that is not necessary wise to do. Make sales your own before you hand it over. This presentation discusses the difference between sales and marketing. How you can build an solid sales team and the most common do's and don'ts for everyone out there on the road. 


We do recommend to become a VIP Member: You then have the right to share your business plan or financials with me, Eva Hukshorn, for 1 time.
