"Professional Selling: A Guide for the Modern Sales Professional"

A note from the authors:

Every year thousands of college graduates enter a career in professional selling, and only a fraction of these students have learned how to succeed as an entry-level seller.
The goal of this courseware is to help students prepare for a career in professional selling by focusing on knowledge and skills. Professional Selling: A Guide for the Modern Sales Professional includes insights from leading selling professionals and videos created by sales executives specifically for this courseware that focus on innovative and modern selling topics such as social selling, CRM, selling analytics, value-based selling, mental aspects of professional selling, and closing strategies.

Instructors will find that the courseware is as much a professional selling training program as it is a traditional textbook. The accompanying slides and lesson plans offer professors a step-by-step guide for in-depth class discussions and application-based role playing which turns the classroom into an engaging and training-like atmosphere.
