What Others Say
About UpSell Training

Here's a sample of the filing cabinet full of compliments. In their words. Unlike most movie blurbs you see, we didn't add any exclamation points. Didn't have to.

We’ve asked her to work with newbies and 10-year sales vets in the same group and it’s a amazing that they all come away saying they’ve learned or re-learned an enormous amount—and they say it with big exclamation points!

Maryellen Ferring would be a huge asset assisting your staff with selling and “building relationships.”  I can tell you the feedback she received from people attending her Upsell selling class I attended was fantastic, especially since it was coming mainly from very experienced DOS [Directors of Sales].  She really does have a way of teaching so it sticks and waking up sales people to their potential.
