Michael Pedone, founder and CEO of SalesBuzz.com, is a name well known to many in the world of online business. He launched an internet marketing company during the dot com meltdown and defied the odds by turning it into a massively successful venture. A large factor in its success was Michael’s ability to teach his proven phone sales techniques to his ever-expanding staff, creating swift growth for the company.
He sold the firm at the peak of its profitability so he could turn his attention to a new challenge. Michael drew on his background as a commissioned sales person and a sales trainer when he created the programs that form the backbone of SalesBuzz.com.
Michael recognized a crucial weakness in most sales companies seminars: the initial glow of enthusiasm whipped up by charismatic speakers soon wears off leaving attendees several hundred or thousand dollars poorer and selling just as little as before. He wanted to offer sales professionals a more effective, affordable sales training mode.
The online sales training programs he designed for SalesBuzz.com harness the power of technology to help companies keep their training costs under control. The students benefit from learning exciting new sales strategies they can start using immediately. And they learn conveniently, at home or office, without having to travel to a workshop in a far-away locale.
