"This has always been a problem. Years ago, I used a Photo Editor to place my face on a $50 bill. I use this on every e-mail I send to a customer. It looks a lot more like MONEY than a coupon, and I get a better response of people asking for me. -Feaz"

I do sales training not just to get new salespeople, but i will also train your people to do the right job with your customers. You can train salesmen, but the managers must follow the system that the salesmen were trained on. It all starts from the top.
