Testimonials

"The most telling feedback is when you hear your salespeople telling others on the floor, 'You've got to get signed up for this the next time they come and do it'"

— Dave Hunke, Former Publisher, USA Today

"Your entire program was such a joy to experience and a worthwhile project that even the 'old dogs' on our staff said they learned many 'new tricks'. In fact, all of the feedback we solicited from our sales staff was totally positive. One senior salesperson said it was the best training he had ever received because the principles were solid." We highly recommend your training to other newspapers."

 

 

 

 

“The Response Oriented Selling System training is different from everything else I had looked at. Unlike most outside training programs, this one is extremely relevant to the newspaper industry and worked very well with our current training agenda. His stuff makes so much sense that it will be easy to retain and use everything. Great style--reps really related well.”

Barbados Advocate

 

”Every one of the sales executives stated that they benefited tremendously from the sessions!”

 

 

Anchorage Daily News

 

"Thank you for your outstanding effort while working with my sales staff and local advertisers. As you know, we had over 320 business people attend one of four seminars. Within the next three months, we will generate a substantial amount of new advertising dollars tied directly to the Response Oriented Selling program. You should also know that the sales and creative staffs accepted your training quite well."

 

 

Allentown Morning Call

 

“There are lots of ad sales training programs to choose from, but your marketing consultants will ultimately use only the techniques that really work for them. That's why we've conducted the Response Oriented Selling® program twice at the Morning Call. If your staff hasn't yet learned these techniques, they're losing sales. There's no better way to make objections disappear and produce a strong response for your advertisers.

 

 

Syracuse Newspapers

 

“It’s the best newspaper training program I’ve experienced. We’ve had more than 40 salespeople and a dozen managers participate–at all levels of experience–and every one of us has had a positive experience. Our staff thinks it’s great. We’ve already experienced a return on our investment and they’re still here!”

 

 

The Times Colonist

 

“Even your most experienced salespeople will benefit... The techniques shared and taught will without a doubt enable our staff to be more effective.”

 

 

Portland Newspapers

 

“Excellent program. Both our salespeople and customers learned a great deal. Compared to other programs, this was better received by the sales staff. We have had many different teachers over the years—this is the first program that was loved by everyone—we would definitely do it again!”

 

 

Montgomery Advertiser

 

“Bob’s approach with the sales staff creates excitement, enthusiasm and has led to increased revenue. Our payback on the cost of the program was tenfold.”

 

Nantucket Inquirer & Mirror

 

“The management coaching module of the Response Oriented Selling System was excellent. It provided us with a detailed, step-by-step system that will keep our investment paying off for years. Nothing was left to chance. We know exactly how to coach the staff with every step of the sales process, where the staff can get sidetracked and how to keep them selling. Even the forms they provided us made a huge difference!”

 

 

Suffolk Times/News Review

 

“Management follow-up will make or break the success of any training program. Response Oriented Selling’s management module was the first one we’ve ever seen that puts as much emphasis on the follow-up system as it did on the sales training itself. It clearly made the difference since it’s been months and we’re still experiencing strong returns.”

 

 

Community Newspaper Company

 

“Finally someone from the sales side of things is telling it like it is! Thank you for finally illuminating and hopefully eliminating the age-old problem of salespeople not giving artists any information and expecting an effective ad. Response Oriented Selling helps to bring the two departments together!”

 

 

 

 

Tucson Newspapers

 

“The merchant’s seminar was more proof that this concept works! All of the merchants that attended were on the edge of their seats for a good hour and a half and many remained long afterwards to discuss specifics.”

 

 

 

American Press Institute

 

“Wow! Your approach to the subject at hand was superb, not just from my point of view but from the member’s as well. I think your expertise and presentation style works extremely well in the conference room. You can rest assured that I'll be asking you back in the future.”
