In the global economy it is not conducive to train new hires in person. Today’s sales forces are widespread and far reaching. This is why businesses are developing employee sales skills through eLearning approaches. As a result, many companies have high onboarding success rates and low training costs.
A learning management system (LMS) offers eLearning solutions that make remote training possible. This type of training benefits employees who are learning sales skills because it combines the three dominant sensations people rely on when absorbing new material; visual, audio, and kinesthetic communication techniques.
1) Visual learning options:
An online training course needs visual tools like videos, diagrams, slide presentations, profiles, and more. These types of visual training materials can be uploaded to an LMS. This is better than having separate power point presentations, videos, and lectures that stand alone and must be accessed separately.
2) Audio learning options:
With audio communication options, an LMS can simulate a classroom setting and serve as a customizable platform to meet specific needs. Lectures and training curriculum can be recorded so employees have the choice of when and where they will listen to the presentation.
3) Kinesthetic learning options:
It is important for employees to practice what they learn. This raises confidence in their sales skills and allows them to feel as if they are not just learning information, but committing a tried and true process to memory. An LMS creates an interactive learning platform where individual testing can take place.
Bringing social learning to the fingertips of a sales force increases the likelihood they will adopt the best sales skills and practices for a particular business.
When it comes to remote sales training programs, technological tools are an important consideration. An LMS leverages a variety of multimedia and communication tools to create an eLearning center that works for anyone, anywhere, any time.
