Virtual Selling

Lead the most successful virtual sales meetings.

The world of sales as we know it has changed forever. 

There are major differences between face-to-face and virtual selling, and your sales team needs a different set of skills and a new sales approach to succeed in a virtual environment. 

In fact, a mere 16% to 34% of sellers do well in the four areas that have the highest influence on buyer purchase decisions.

At the same time, sellers report great challenges building rapport virtually, keeping buyers engaged, changing buyers' points of view, and collaborating with buyers virtually.

Experience Success Like Our Clients

BDO generated over $16 million in pipeline across 36 people 

After a successful multi-year engagement with RAIN Group, BDO was looking toward the next stage of its business development training lifecycle.

BDO and RAIN Group collaborated to create a custom Pod Program. Over 5 months, participants attended sessions where they shared business development principles, discussed and practiced application, and conducted a review of current activity and results. They covered topics from RAIN Selling, Prospecting, Extreme Productivity, and Virtual Selling. 

Now in its third year, BDO has witnessed exceptional results: across just 36 people, nearly $17 million in new pipeline has been generated and there is a waitlist to join the program.
