About the speaker: Jan Nieges, is a Certified Kitchen and Bath Designer and Chapter Officer of the Rocky Mountain NKBA Chapter with over 27 years of design and sales experience. She has developed over the years a way to improve her time on tasks that cultivate a lead to a sale resulting in 95% closing ratio.
Jan will explain her process and share documents she uses with her clients to help you improve your time on task and increase your closing ratio resulting in more income. If your are spending 8-9 hours quoting/designing before a client commits to buy from you, if your closing ratio is less than 75%; If you are struggling to find ways to earn more income, and if you are working 40-60 hours and making less than $50K, then you need to learn how to Sell to Design by NOT Designing to Sell.
