New Training Shows Associates How-to Track Sales Performance

Furniture World News on

The Furniture Training Company reported that a new online selling skills module, Setting and Achieving Sales Goals Part II, is now available on the Furniture Training Company’s subscription web site. This module completes the two-part series that shows associates’ how-to set, track, and achieve their own sales performance goals. Available anytime and anywhere, the modules are based on the idea “desire is the turning point of all achievement,” championed by Napoleon Hill in his landmark motivational book, “Think and Grow Rich!”

Mark Lacy, President of The Furniture Training Company says, “We show associates the direct connection between greeting more people, closing more customers, and selling more to each customer and their own financial goals for higher income, vacations, and other personal goals. We motivate them to assist every customer like never before.”

The Setting and Achieving Sales Goals modules are part of the continually expanding library of online furniture training resources at the www.furnituretrainingcompany.com subscription web site. Like the other 200+ training modules and resources available on the web site, these new modules consist of fully narrated interactive audio-visual presentations, performance-changing activities, and graded tests. Store owners and managers can monitor 24/7 associate training progress and test scores.
