Manila is a big place with diverse culture, people and profession. My family and I have stayed here for more than 4 years now and there is one thing I have realized here and that is Manila has great opportunities if you go look for it. Survival of the fittest, so they say. Those opportunities that you did not grab today will be seized by someone else tomorrow.
When you look for an effective sales and marketing training in Manila, you have to consider these things. You have to understand that there are a lot of trainers out there who will claim to be able to help you out. I checked a free classifieds site and look for other trainers promoting their services there and I can see that their rates are way cheaper than mine. Although I still consider myself lower than the usual mainstream trainer, my rate is how much I believe I am worth.
Here are some tips that may be able to help you when looking for sales and marketing training in Manila. Find someone who:
- Knows the market in Manila
It is important that the trainer you chose knows the local market or else everything he will teach your sales team will just be theories. The problem with teaching theories is, as it suggests, it is not yet proven. If your sales team asks something during the training then, tendency is he will not be able to answer straight and he will just be going around in circles.
- Understands the local
In sales and marketing, understanding your target market is very important. That is how you can make sure that you have a stratified customer – giving them what they wanted and needed. If you chose a trainer who does not understand how the consumer in your local area thinks then you are in big trouble. It will just be the blind leading the blind. Don’t let this happen to you sales team.
- Has the track record
But of course, nothing beats a track record. If the trainer has done it then, for sure, whatever he teaches is something that he has proven to be effective. I mean, the only way for you to know that training is going to be effective is when the trainer himself has proven that it is, indeed, effective. As they say, walk the talk…practice what you preach.
There may be a lot of trainers out there. Most of them are competent but some of them are just plain bozo who is just in it for the money. Your sales team may enjoy the training session and the trainer may be a good entertainer but that’s all you get – plain entertainment and a waste of time and money.
Choose wisely when you plan to have a sales and marketing training for your sales people. Your choice may determine the difference between failure and success.
