The Furniture Training Company announced that a new online selling skills series, Selling Your Store's Credit Plan, is now available on the Furniture Training Company’s subscription web site. This series consists of three interactive and engaging training modules with confidence building worksheets and graded tests that show associates’ how-to introduce, present the benefits, and close more sales using their store's in-house financing programs. A sales associate recently completing the training said, “Of all the courses I have completed, I believe Selling my Store's Credit Plans to be the most beneficial.”

Mark Lacy, President of The Furniture Training Company says, “Most furniture stores have great in-house credit solutions but few have associates with the selling skills necessary to effectively introduce and close credit sales. This new training series shows salespeople how to introduce without fear or apprehension the many valuable in-house financing options their store offers. Once a salesperson masters the skills for selling furniture on credit, they can over night increase their closing rate and boost the size of their average sale.”
