Course Description

This simple and straightforward course will show you how to get your first job in sales - meaning you can join some of the highest paid people on the planet.

Learn everything you need to get you on a the fast track to a sales career

What are our students saying:

"This is a fairly short course but to the point! I'm pleased that it addresses some common beliefs about getting a sales job or fears like what if I don't have any experience. I got interested in this because sales seems to be a skill that once you get it you will always depend on yourself, and not someone else, to make money. So this is great for anyone who wants to get into the sales business."

  • Learn everything you need to know from scratch, quickly and simply - so you can land your dream job fast
  • Discover the best ways to promote yourself - so you stand out from the crowd - making you the 'obvious' choice for any sales role
  • Build strong self-belief and confidence - making you ready and relaxed for an interview

Salespeople are paid for what they know in practice, rather than what it says they know on paper - in other words anyone can make it in sales, even without the 'right' qualifications. This course will steer you into the fast lane of practical knowledge, knowledge that you can immediately put into practice - and ultimately that is what your future employer wants.

This course is the sum of all my experience as a successful salesperson and salesperson manager, molded in one practical guide. I've 'walked the talk', and so can you by following the simple steps in this course.

Instructor Biography

Stephen Atkinson, Entrepreneur, Writer, Trainer & Consultant

I love being self-employed and small businesses – but it hasn’t always been that way! After leaving school several millennia ago, I joined the ‘University of Life’ and worked my way up the corporate ladder, concentrating on sales and training – learning some tough lessons along the way and making lots of mistakes – but enjoying it greatly.

After several very successful years wearing a suit, a smile, and working for someone else - it was time to go it alone. Needing a new challenge I threw myself into self-employment, and now have several micro-businesses which are enjoyable and profitable.

I like variety - so on a daily basis I walk a collection of motley hounds (and get paid for it), design websites for small businesses, teach IT and occasionally be a sales consultant!
