Mirren Sponsorship Sales Training Master Class

FEBRUARY 25, 2020 | NEW YORK

Advanced Sponsorship Sales Training

More Systematically Build & Convert Pipelines of Qualified Sponsorship Leads

Apply the New Best Practices of the Highest-Performing Sales Teams, Ultimately Closing More Deals – at Higher Fees

The first portion of the day will focus on how to more quickly deconstruct and address each client’s business model and growth goals. With this in place, you’ll then move through several principles that outline how to more effectively correlate all your sales messaging and proposals to client business impact. The most important shift you’ll begin making is from selling “audience access” to “client impact” – ultimately selling benefit.

Later in the afternoon, a panel of guest speakers will join the session. Here, several of the country’s top media agency buyers will reveal new insight into “How to Get Me to By More of Your Sponsorship”.

This will be a rare opportunity to learn directly from these key executives, with a particular focus on what has most changed over the last year.

Step-by-step, you will begin applying the new best practices that build and convert pipelines of qualified leads – with brand advertisers and agencies. Our goal is to have your sales teams become more strategic, more effective, and more focused on their client’s business.

Our approach is down to a science – strategic and methodical – but often contrarian. If you follow the rules of the client process and never lead, your ability to convert business drops considerably.

This will be a rare opportunity to learn directly from these key executives, with a particular focus on what has most changed over the last year.

Step-by-step, you will begin applying the new best practices that build and convert pipelines of qualified leads – with brand advertisers and agencies. Our goal is to have your sales teams become more strategic, more effective, and more focused on their client’s business.
