This coaching methodology will be tracked for implementation and effectiveness.
Q. How do we get our membership started?
Once all your goals are understood and questions are answered, you say “let’s go”. A simple “Letter of Agreement” will need to be signed, a “kick-off” call will be set between our two teams, and from there we script your next 12-36 months of coaching improvement. EcSell likes to work with a deliberate sense of urgency, but will move at a pace that is comfortable for each sales team.

Q. What should we expect for a ROI?
Those that are committed to execution and implementation are most successful with our membership. EcSell members averaged over 28% new sales growth last year.
