They Ask, You Answer

A Revolutionary Approach to Inbound Sales, Content Marketing, and Today’s Digital Customer.

Based on his landmark book, that has sold over 150,000 copies around the world and was named a “Top 5 Marketing Book of All Time,” They Ask You Answer addresses two fundamental and prolific problems businesses (both B2B and B2C) are dealing with today:

1. How do we evolve our business model to fit the demands of a dramatically more informed, less patient, and more digital customer?
2. How can we establish our brand and business as the voice of trust in our space, while attracting enough customers and standing out above the noise?

With these important questions in mind, attendees in this program will learn:

  • How companies must evolve their sales and marketing departments (and their priorities) to meet the expectations of informed digital customers.
  • The very specific types of content today’s buyers demand to see (and learn about) on a company’s website – and how to effectively address these subjects as a business to gain their trust.
  • The role video and visual will play on the buying process moving forward and how companies can effectively embrace this critical
  • The power great content can have when used intentionally in the sales process, and how sales teams can revolutionize their sales process when it’s applied correctly.
  • How customers are demanding more of a “seller-free” sales experience on the front end of the buying process.
  • The up-and-coming trend of “self-service” – and how companies can effectively integrate it with their customer website experiences.

Ultimately, They Ask You Answer focuses on “trust” and “change” and has proven to be life-changing for the 500+ audiences around the world that have received this very program.

  • As the most-requested program Marcus delivers, it can be delivered as a keynote presentation, as well as a half-day, deep-dive training.
  • ‘Marcus uses customized industry examples for every program, so audiences will understand how this knowledge applies to their organizations.

Question First for Leaders

A Transformative Approach to Workplace Conversations for Leaders, Managers, and Team Members

In an ever-growing digital world where people are busier and more stressed than they’ve ever been, never has deeper and more effective communication been more important.

Leaders have witnessed stunning shifts in the workforce. Managers are experiencing new demands and juggling more than ever from their team. And employees are attempting to find a sense of purpose, fulfillment, and growth.

Expectations for everyone have changed. And this means surface-level conversations and average communication skills are no longer
enough. Today, to get the results needed for success, we must be transformational in the way we communicate.

We must stand out. We must know how to handle difficult situations.
We must understand the art of active listening and effective questions.
Ultimately, we must have deeper conversations to form deeper relationships.

The challenge, of course, is that there is very little information available that teaches people “how” to do these things. For this reason, renowned speaker, communicator, and business leader Marcus Sheridan has released this new program, designed around a strategic communication philosophy and framework called Question First.

In essence, Question First will teach audiences three core principles that will unlock their ability as leaders, managers, and team-members to overcome the following struggles:

  • What is the perfect response to any negative situation, moment, or statement in the workplace?
  • How can I get my team to own the solutions to their problems and become better leaders in the process?
  • How can I speak the right way to customers every time, earning their trust and resolving their concerns, regardless of the situation?
  • How can we as a team go beyond surface-level questions to create opportunities for self-discovery and “light bulb” moments

What makes this program unique is that Marcus uses his trademark style to create highly interactive, engaging, and enlightening activities with each audience, delivering teachings that truly “stick”, while also ensuring clear takeaways for each attendee.

Ultimately, if you’re looking for a program that will help your audience members improve their ability to lead, influence, and communicate, resulting in better company cultures, better team performance, more sales, and greater employee retention in the process – this is the program for you.

As a result of this program, your audience will:

  • Develop the confidence to handle any difficult conversation, statement, or moment in a way that builds positive momentum and trust (without flinching or losing your ability to control the situation).
  • Learn how to create a culture of leadership development throughout your entire team, rooted in a communication framework that builds these skills naturally.
  • Understand how to ask incredibly effective questions that immediately get to the “core” of the issue while building stronger relationships in the process.
  • Become more aware of “what could cause this conversation (with a team member, customer, etc.) to go poorly” and learn how to get in front of such issues.
  • Know what it takes to consistently generate “light bulb moments” and breakthroughs with everyday team conversations and meetings.

Question First for Sales Teams

How to Become a Transformational Sales Communicator to Earn More Trust, Win More Deals, and Be Seen as a Trusted Advisor.

The most effective sales professionals in the world tend to be the greatest communicators. In other words, they generally have:

  • The ability to instantly earn a prospect’s trust.
  • The ability to handle any doubt, concern, or negative moment without flinching.
  • The ability to ask discovery questions that immediately get to the true need, problem, or core of the issue.
  • The ability to win every room they’re in by saying the right thing, showing up the right way, and instilling unbelievable confidence in those around them.

But if we’re being honest, how many sales professionals truly have mastery of these skills? This is exactly why Question First is such a powerful and important sales program.

Whether it’s a B2B or B2C sales audience, Marcus Sheridan has developed a program that is loaded with takeaways, actionable items, and real-life sales scenarios that will move your audience and inspire them to become the communicators they were meant to be.

Marcus will teach your audience three fundamental principles of transformative communication, and his interactive and funny style will make the experience incredibly educational, entertaining, and inspiring.

As a result of this program, your sales team will:

  • Learn how to respond to any question (positive or negative) from a prospect in a way that shows confidence and builds trust.
  • Clearly identify “what could go wrong” before sales meetings and learn how to get in front of these issues, doubts, and objections before they are ever allowed to occur.
  • Understand the difference between effective and ineffective questions with prospects.
  • Earn trusted advisor status by asking deeper questions that induce major “light-bulb moments” with prospects and customers.
  • Discover how to masterfully lead a sales call while also helping the prospect feel fully engaged, heard, and understood.
  • Remove habits that are diminishing your team’s authority.
