Sales as an Owner
Are you a small business owner? If so, then you’re likely overwhelmed with the amount of work you have to do yourself. You may have to produce or manufacture your product. You may have to handle hiring or accounting. You are likely the one to sell your product or service. But what if sales isn’t your thing? Sales comes naturally to some, but not everyone. If you fall into this category of business owners, then you’ll benefit from learning a few sales concepts and methods that we’ll cover in this course. We’ll talk about creating and marketing your personal brand and developing a sales process. We’ll also go over some different sales methods to help you maximize your sales strategy and bring in more profit.

If you’re a small business owner and you don’t have a marketing department or a marketing degree, this series might be just what you need to help your business grow.
