Event description
Learn how to build a repeatable sales model for your business

About this Event

Discounted price available for current Miami Dade College students, staff, faculty and alumni – Please contact Miriam Kohel at mkohelze@mdc.edu for more information.

This workshop will help you:

  • Understand, build and test sales funnels
  • Distinguish “metrics that matter” and build relevant dashboards for measurement
  • Learn to build, test, learn, adapt methodology as applied to sales/sales channels

Workshop overview:

Through presentation and reading students will learn a step-by-step framework for describing, testing and tuning sales models. Just as Alex Osterwalder’s Value Proposition Design is a detailed zoom-in to the Value Proposition piece of the business model canvas, this course is a close-up of the customer acquisition (channels) piece.

While every entrepreneur and company must find its own unique way to repeatable sales, this framework provides a structured approach to navigating the journey.

At the end of the workshop, participants will have mapped out their 3-year success criteria, determined the customer throughput they need to achieve their goal, reverse-engineered a roadmap showing how they get to their 3-year goal, built a sales funnel, and learned what to measure to determine its effectiveness and efficiency. We will also introduce channels to get to customers - e.g. LinkedIn - and how to use them to find and build relationships with potential customers.

Who should take this?

This hands-on workshop will help students, startup entrepreneurs and small and medium-sized businesses.
