Not understanding the markets that you are selling to, is one of the main reasons people struggle with getting results from their sales efforts.
The Sales Foundations course is designed to introduce students to the basic concepts behind how sales works, and how to integrate proven strategies into their sales toolkit. The interesting thing about the world of sales is that salespeople are always learning and continually perfecting their craft. That is one of the things that make careers in sales so popular, and that no two days, or two customers, are ever the same.
