(OSHKOSH, Wis.)—Hands-on sales training tops the list of sales training methods, according to exclusive new research from promotional products retailer 4imprint. The survey of 118 talent development professionals finds hands-on sales training more effective than micro-learning, role playing and real-world scenarios combined, according to results published in the digital magazine amplify®.
In fact, half (50%) of those surveyed report hands-on sales training is the most effective sales training method. Talent development professionals in four of six industries rated hands-on training as their preferred training method.
That’s one reason both a manufacturing company launching a new product and a veterinary hospital opening a new location used hands-on training to prep their teams for launch. Both companies are profiled in the amplify cover story, “Ready to Launch.”
“Well-done product launches and business expansions can energize both employees and customers,” said Kevin Lyons-Tarr, CEO, 4imprint. “That’s why we asked training pros how organizations can best prep their teams to take advantage of the launch momentum.”
