Discover the Three Secrets to Consistently Increase Your Sign Orders is the Friday morning seminar at the MSA Winter Meeting, March 9-10, at the Hilton Garden Inn, Levis Commons, Perrysburg (Toledo), Ohio.

What would you do if you discovered an easier way to help your potential customers buy from YOU?

Knowing what's important to them can be as easy as asking the right questions in the right way. And having proven strategies to overcome the "Toughest" price objections will reduce the stress of asking for the order. Join us for a productive and profitable session that will quickly boost your Results.

Following the Friday lunch the program will continue with Improving Sign Sales In Any Market. Using effective body language, listening with your eyes and ears, and connecting with their personalities will dramatically impact your bottom-line!

Have you ever "Hit it off" with someone on Tuesday. . . and during your next sales presentation on Thursday, you feel like something is off. . .even though you are doing the same things that worked before? What if how you are selling is getting in the way for the decision-maker?

Staying in our safe comfort zone sometimes stops the sale from proceeding. In this session you will uncover what you are doing to contaminate the communication. Then watch your sales soar!

This will be a fun and interactive session with on-the-spot coaching.
