Low cost training ideas

Low cost training ideas. This is something Associated Learning Systems specialises in – aimed at telephone based teams : customer service, telemarketing, telesales plus managers, supervisors and team leaders.

Investing to increase business value

We believe the UK economy is showing signs of growth at the moment, but nevertheless many companies are keeping a strict eye on budgets. Training is all too often one of the areas that gets squeezed.

Nevertheless the need is clearly there to make sure your team is the best it can be at sniffing out business opportunities and at building better relationships with more people over the phone more often.

Buying some low cost – high value audio CDs which gives you the training material in digital format is a great way of investing in training, and buying some ideas of best practice for a limited outlay. You can view all our products covering

The products are just £34.99 + VAT including delivery. Just one idea that works for 1 of your team will repay your investment almost certainly. There are product bundles available too – saving you even more money.

In-house training 

You may have your own training resources in-house, your own trainers and material. Many companies and organisations buy our audio CDs to add to their own material – which they then use to base training sessions around. Sounds fair enough to us.

Whatever your reason, certainly investing in your front line personnel is of major importance as most companies have to compete more actively for a smaller customer pot.

Associated Learning Systems provides a range of audio CDs and tips booklets developed for people and companies involved in communication with customers on the phone in the fields of telesales, telemarketing, customer service and telephone team management.  We help you BE BETTER AT WHAT YOU DO!

Developing in-house training material – customer service and telesales

Developing in-house training material for customer service and telesales is important for you and your company if you still have restricted training budgets at the moment. The temptation is to cut costs and look for increasing ways of being self-sufficient.

You recognise that training is important – perhaps MORE important than it’s ever been, but you’ve not got money to throw at it. Perhaps you’re reading this looking for some new ideas and new material.

You will therefore be using a number of different training devices to keep the team ahead of the competition, and motivated. One to one coaching is an important part of this.�
Training has become more important this year - and will remain so into 2010
Training has become more important this year – and will remain so into 2010

Also classroom training is a valuable part of the mix. You will have some training material in-house but it can be difficult constantly finding new and relevant material.

That’s why increasing numbers of people are turning to DVD and audio CDs for additional material.
Our audio CDs cover a range of topics for the development of individuals and teams : customer service, telesales, telemarketing,PR marketing and self-development. They’re all here.
You can see the full list of categories plus the latest best sellers and pack offers at   http://www.associatedlearningsystems.co.uk/
Trainers and team managers often use these CDs to either give them more material to listen to, adapt and present themselves. Alternatively you can buy them to use as learning sessions by playing sections of the CDs to the team and asking them to complete exercises about the material – specific to your industry and organisation.
For new ideas and top tips on customer service, telemarketing and telesales Associated Learning Systems is the palce to be. Buying is easy online with credit card or your PayPal account. Prices for each CD start at just £34.99 – so just one good idea will repay your investment many times over.

Get your customer clear – don’t assume

The following tip comes from Amy Roberts who I worked with on a telesales training course earlier this year in Leicester. She wrote ;

“One tip I would suggest – At the end of the conversation repeat back what has been discussed and what both of you need to do – Then follow it up with an email, this reduces confusion and means you both know what is expected of each other.”

This is sound advice as it helps you manage customer expectations. You both need to be clear what will happen next and when. This advice applies equally to telemarketing, telesales and customer service roles. 

There will be a CD launched soon covering the basics of professional telephone behaviour, there are also 3 audio CDs on customer service http://www.associatedlearningsystems.co.uk/product_list.asp?Section=CUSTOMER%20SERVICE%20SKILLS
