RAINMAKER SALES TRAINING
Sales are the lifeblood of every profitable business and you need at least one rainmaker keep that blood pumping.
In legal parlance, a “rainmaker” is an attorney at a law firm–usually a partner–who specializes at bringing in new clients.
Of course, there are rainmakers in every industry, including accounting, banking, medical practices and even dentistry.
One could argue that every employee at your company has the ability to bring in new business, right?
You’re probably on the lookout for the next round of rainmakers in your business.
If so, Michael Angelo Caruso’s Rainmaker Training can make this happen for you quite quickly.
Part sales training boot camp, part networking immersion, and part charm school, this program gets results!
Quality sales training is vital to your business
This Rainmaker Training program is a wise investment in your company’s short-term and long-term success.
Michael will work with your sales team to get their numbers where they need to be.
Many clients see results within as few as 90 days.
Your sessions will be a customized combination of high-powered phone calls, Skype video sessions, and group training events at your business or a nearby location.
Watch the video below as Michael discusses “Rainmaking for Accountants.”
You can also engage Mr. Caruso for “Rainmaking for Attorneys” and “Rainmaking for Insurance Agents.” The strategies for bringing in new business may vary a bit from industry to industry, but selling principles remain basically the same.
