Sandler trainers and new authors, Marcus Cauchi and David Davies, join us to talk about selling through retails, distributors, reps, and other third parties. Whether you are currently using other channels to sell your products or services or you are exploring new channels, you should listen to these two experts and read their new Sandler book.

Click here to buy the new book, Making Channel Sales Work. 

A concise and structured approach to third-party sales management that blends many of the tools and the rigor of Sandler Training with specific guidance for channel managers.

Create a World-Class ­Third-Party Selling Program!

Channel sales is selling that takes place by means of any third party. Sales completed through value-added resellers, partners, systems integrators, independent representatives or agents, licensed distributors, and franchisees are all examples of channel sales. Many companies operate under a channel-sales model without ever having heard of the term!

Regardless of what it’s called, this model presents both special challenges and special opportunities. Whether you are an early-stage venture or a small vendor of products, intellectual property, or services looking to build your footprint quickly and reliably; whether you already have a channel process in place and you want to improve or revitalise it, or you are aiming to create your ­ first channel program from scratch; whether you are working with a group of independent agents or you are looking to build a franchise operation from the ground up—this book has been written with you in mind.

What if Sandler Training wasn’t about sales, management or customer service? What if it wasn’t even about communication skills or learning how to succeed? What would it be about?

Could it be about changing or even saving lives?

At Sandler, we talk a lot about finding and fixing pain. Sometimes pain is physical and real, and sometimes is emotional or even imagined. But what we know for sure is that PAIN is a very strong motivating force, and most people will do anything to relieve it.

That’s why we learn questioning strategies like the Pain Funnel, a proven set of questions designed to help people realize and deal with their pain. Most of the time in sales, we uncover surface problems or business reasons, but sometimes it is personal and emotional. And that is when it is real pain.

We recommend you memorize the Pain Funnel questions because the right questions might save your life or someone else’s… This is a true story from one of our clients.

“I got a text message yesterday from my children’s mother saying she was going to end her life. I called her immediately, and she answered in tears stating that she had lost her children, lost her love, and was done with life.

My initial response without forethought was to fall back on my sales training, I asked “What do you mean, tell me more about that, please.” She responded saying her life was over. I asked, “What you mean and how long has it been that you have been feeling this way?”

She told me that ever since she had left me and the children, she had been addicted to prescription narcotics and in an abusive relationship. By this time, I am in my vehicle racing to her home. I asked her, “Since this realization, what has she tried to do to get help or leave?”

She responded saying she had tried to stop using and tried to leave her lover many times. I told her clearly this has failed to work, and she agreed. I asked her what it has cost her?

She then told me that this has cost her, her family, children, and life… With a lump in my throat I asked her what she was feeling coming to this realization.

By this time, I had arrived at her house and was going to find her. I found a beaten woman who was in the process of ending her life. At this point, I pulled my wallet out and showed her a picture of my beautiful 6-year-old son and my amazing 13-year-old daughter… and asked her, “Are you going to give up on them? And are you done fighting?”

At that point she dropped what she had in her hands and allowed me to call for help. Less than 24 hours later, she is on a plane to Colorado to a treatment center for addiction and spiritual healing.

The skills you teach far surpass sales… You teach how to meet people where they are and to get the root of issues and pain. I thank you, I fully believe without the questioning skills you have instilled in me, I would not have had the clarity to get through to her and my children’s mother may not be here.”

We hope you never need them for this reason, but we will leave you with one question. How good are your questioning skills?

THE BIGGEST NAME IN SALES AND BIGGEST NAME IN MOTIVATION TEAM UP

Sandler Training And Ziglar Inc. To Share Strategic Resources

In this episode, you will learn about legacy from Tom Ziglar, CEO of Ziglar, Inc. and co-author of Born to Win with his father, Zig Ziglar. Tom shares his thoughts on the attitudes, behaviors, and techniques of building a legacy and life worth living. Tom also talks about the new Sandler/Ziglar strategic alliance.

Owings Mills, MD – Sandler Training and Ziglar Inc., two of the major players in the training world, have formed a strategic alliance to share resources.

As the leader of the global sales training market, Sandler Training has 250 offices worldwide, with professional trainers providing more than 450,000 hours per year of instruction in 23 languages. 

Ziglar Inc. has been a leader in the motivational and business space for over 40 years. Zig Ziglar, the founder of Ziglar Inc., has influenced approximately a quarter of a billion individuals, and his son, Tom, carries on his legacy today.

The strategic alliance with Ziglar Inc. enables Sandler Training to offer additional courses, as well as enhancing already existing programs, to their clients. The Ziglar content focuses on attitude, which fits well with Sandler’s proprietary BAT program (Behaviors, Attitudes, and Techniques). Likewise, Sandler Training will bring Ziglar Inc. more into the corporate arena by allowing the company to offer specific Sandler courses to Ziglar clientele. 

Years of mutual respect and admiration for each other’s successes has led to this alliance. “We realize and appreciate the impact Sandler’s had on the corporate world,” says Tom Ziglar. “So we want this alliance to help bring the Ziglar message into the corporate world.”

A driving force for these companies to align began with the idea that millennials are often unsure of what career path they want to go down. Ziglar’s motivational content mixed together with Sandler’s sales training techniques ensures a millennial’s success. “Our combined offerings create a powerful learning path for millennials as well as all levels and generations throughout an organization,” says David Mattson, President and CEO of Sandler Training.

The proven and timeless principles of David H. Sandler and Zig Ziglar continue to drive success for companies and individuals, and both Sandler and Ziglar have demonstrated the ability to transfer those proven and timeless principles into today’s ever-changing and evolving business landscape.

“I love that the biggest name in sales joins the biggest name in motivation,” Ziglar emphasizes. “The corporate world needs what Ziglar has and Sandler is the world leader in helping corporations achieve their revenue goals, which enhances our offerings.”

Sandler Training is known in the industry for its techniques and skills with sales training while Ziglar Inc. is recognized specifically for the attitude portion of effective leadership training. Mattson states, “if you can meld those two together, it’s just a winning combination.”
