Business women from Merseyside and Greater Manchester came together for the launch of The Women's Organisations FREE business club. Held at The Women's Organisations brand new offices at 54 St James street the Business Club offered 'Successful Sales' as the topic for the first meeting.
Jo Copoc of Boomerang Business Solutions who set up with help from The Women's Organisation gave and inspiring talk around winning the 'yes' from customers and improving overall average orders.
Speaking from her experience of dealing with large brands and blue chip companies Jo stepped the women through techniques for making your deisred customers know you exist, getting them to notice your potential and building relationships that lead to sales. Jo says of business:
"As business owners we are walking adverts and our sales ability has to be exceptional to compete in this climate.
Word of mouth is the highest quality lead any business can generate, but in the current climate we are all so busy being reactive to the day to day processes that sometimes we forget our sales strategy and growth areas."
The Women's Organisation business adviser Mike Marsden also offered helpful networking tips to the women who attended including "Don't just meet once at a networking event - follow up with key leads".
Feedback from the event included:
"Lovely to see the new building. Fantastic presentation from Jo. Thanks to all"
"Excellent presentation and tips. Thanks"
