Accelerate Sales via Partners

Business to business channel sales training for alliance, distributor, reseller, and retail sales managers.

Channel Sales Training

Selling ' through' is different from selling 'to'. Affecting results through a distributor, a reseller or a business partner depends on a different set of skills and habits. Channel sales training bridges the gap.

This course provides the elements missing from traditional, end user sales training and addresses the needs of channel account managers, distribution account managers, and alliance managers.
