Inbound Sales Professional Course (for phone-based employees)
$497 AUD per person
Our Inbound Sales Professional Training course will teach your phone-based employees (e.g. call centre or phone sales team) a set of premium call handling sales skills and advanced behaviours needed for sales success that is proven to work for any product, service or industry.
The five core competencies and specific behaviours within the Five Degrees methodology will influence a perspective and approach that shifts the focus from using a traditional ‘sales process’ to one that makes it easier for customers to buy.
The Buying versus Selling method is perfect for those people and cultures where sales is resisted or looked upon as a fearful or negative thing either internally or by your customers.
It’s sales from a service paradigm that actually delivers more sales by ensuring opportunities don’t slip through your fingers call after call. Sales Conversion, Customer Satisfaction, Net Promoter Score, Call Quality and Employee Engagement are all positively impacted as your staff learn to be both more efficient and effective when customer’s contact you looking for solutions to their needs.
Delivered over 3 x 3-hour sessions across three weeks (one per week!), we’ll teach a structured, yet natural approach (no scripts!) that encourages staff to be themselves and build rapport with customers that will result in increased sales opportunities.
Not only will your contact centre/phone-based employees come away with increased knowledge and skills in premium call handling, but they’ll be armed with a set of behaviours that will deliver improved job satisfaction and business outcomes.
Inbound Sales Professional Training Course Fast Facts
Online or onsite training!
This Inbound Sales Professional training course can be delivered either online or onsite (subject to COVID restrictions and travel costs may apply) with trainee engagement and learning outcomes adjusted depending on your preferred delivery model.
The online model enables employees to learn, apply and practice their new skills in between each session and as it’s delivered online, there is minimal downtime meaning it can easily be scheduled into shifts etc and delivered across multiple locations (e.g if some or all employees are working from home).
Onsite, of course, enables us to do things a little differently and this option is only available for private bookings as it’s not typically cost-effective to run three different sessions across three weeks (this course can be delivered in one full day).
Who should do this course?
The Inbound Sales Professional Training course is designed for someone who already has some experience in a contact centre handling phone calls, but they have never been taught or expected to sell before – whether it’s selling a product or service, upselling, cross-selling etc. The skills we teach are applicable to all industries, products and services!
Typical roles include:
- Call centre agents working in a sales or service role
- Customer service staff
- Telephone account management

What you’ll learn:
The Inbound Sales Professional training course will introduce and coach your agents through both essential and advanced behaviours needed for sales success and positive experiences.
A deeper dive into the advanced conversation and needs discovery skills will help them to uncover what customers want to achieve and also what they need to buy BEFORE products and services are even mentioned.
There’s plenty of role-playing and practice built in to ensure agents can put their new skills to work with the practice conducted in a safe, fun and welcoming online environment.
At the end of the course, trainees will be provided with a certificate of achievement.
Delivered as 3 x 3-hour modules (1 per week over 3 weeks) with an optional follow-up 30-minute coaching session for individuals to focus on key areas.
An exploration of why customer’s buy; the first 30 seconds of conversation to personalise; How to build trust as the foundation for customer buying decisions.

A deep exploration and practice in the art of conversation to get customers revealing key insights into what they want to achieve and exactly what they need from you to make a decision to buy.
5. Educate & Close
How to paint pictures in the mind of the customer with your words as to how your your product/service will deliver what they wanted to achieve; how to ask for the business; how to validate the buying decision; how to show true appreciation to finish the call.

How and when its delivered
The Inbound Sales Professional training course is delivered via Zoom Teleconferencing and users will be sent the Zoom link the day prior to the course commencing. We offer this course both publicly and privately with the differences outlined below:
The Inbound Sales Professional training course is delivered as 3 x 3-hour modules across three weeks enabling students to learn, practice and apply their new learnings in between sessions. As the course is delivered online, there is also minimal downtime enabling your contact centre agents to continue working outside of the training program to limit any impact on productivity.
The times and dates are fixed to enable you to plan ahead and typically we run this course once a month. If you would like to have more flexibility on the dates, times and content please refer to our private options.
Whilst the public courses can be a great way to interact with others and are perfect for small numbers, sometimes you need more flexibility with the dates and times or you’d like the benefits of training larger groups of contact centre agents within your business.
Our private courses can deliver the same course with dates and times to suit you and we can also include custom-built role plays, simulations and call examples based on your business rather than generic ones we use in our public courses.
