Offer a discount and the sales will always come flooding in, right?

But what happens when you put your course back up to its full price?

In many cases….tumble weed.

Discounting is used by so many of us because it’s seen as the easiest and quickest way to sell something.

But the problem with this is that it can actually make it a lot more difficult to sell, especially when you want to put your courses or products back up to their full price…the price you deserve to sell it at.

Sandler Training’s Global Head of Content and co-writer of LinkedIn: The Sandler Way, Mike Montague joins us in this episode to tell us how to sell effectively, without using discounts.

So if you’re sick of only selling your stuff when you offer it for peanuts….tune in.
