Selling in the COVID Era
Wednesday, July 20 | 1:15 p.m.-2:15p.m.

Selling in the construction industry during and post COVID is challenging. Some of the tried and true methods are less effective and many new ones are not as effective as they were at the onset. How do you adjust your sales strategy to continue to produce profitable business, increase revenue and even grow in this time period? Giving up on sales is a mistake and will be realized often when it’s too late. What we’ll cover:

  • Is outside sales still relevant
  • Is Zoom the new normal
  • Is face to face selling possible
  • How can you integrate digital selling with traditional selling?

We will dive deep into all these areas and you will come out with a baseline to build a sales plan. Many construction industry related companies are thriving in this climate. This is a chance for you to be one of those experiencing success.

Target Audience: Architects, General Contractors, Subcontractors, Builders, and Remodelers
Networking & Association Use
Thursday, July 21 | 1:15 p.m.-2:15 p.m.
