Online Sales Training That works

A leader in B2B sales training, Michael Pedone is the founder and CEO of SalesBuzz.com.

Prior to SalesBuzz.com and during the dot com meltdown, he founded a successful SEO company. His ability to teach his proven phone sales techniques to his expanding staff contributed greatly to the rapid growth of the company.

Having reached the height of his company’s profitability, he sold it for a seven-figure cash deal so that he could take on a new challenge. Based on his experience as a straight-commission salesperson, Michael created SalesBuzz.com.

Most sales training seminars have a critical weakness: after an initial burst of enthusiasm, the initial buzz of charismatic speakers soon fades, leaving attendees several hundred or thousand dollars poorer and selling no more than before. He wanted to make sales training more effective and affordable for sales professionals.

His online sales training programs help companies reduce training costs and improve the phone skills of their sales teams.

Students benefit from the opportunity to learn exciting new sales strategies that they can apply right away. Additionally, they learn conveniently from home or the office, without having to travel to a workshop.
