How to Score from First Base! (In Sales)

About the Program

Bases Loaded

The intersection of sales and marketing is at the plate and the bases are loaded.

Making the initial connection with a key account, new client, or sales-based marketing opportunity involves many touchpoints (bases). In this presentation, Ray Ruecker, Founder and Managing Director of Connect 5000, helps you connect with key decision makers who rarely
pick up the phone, typically ignore emails, and only have seconds to make a connection – if you’re lucky enough to catch them on the phone.

All registrants will receive the PDF of Ray’s latest book “How to Score from First Base! (In Sales)” available at Amazon!

This is a joint program of the American Marketing Association – Kansas City and the Business Marketing Alliance.
