Sales and Hiring Training To Build Your Contractor Business

Many professional contractor businesses rely too heavily on untrained, under-supervised, and underperforming on-the-ground sales teams to cross-sell and upsell their services.

Why keep hiring new drivers, technicians, salespeople, and other representatives without having solid recruitment, sales, and leadership training processes in place?

Your business can run more efficiently than that.

Build an ideal team

Attracting, screening, and hiring top performers is challenging.  In a competitive job market, the Metahire Sale Hiring System helps you quickly identify and hire ideal candidates before your competitor and enables you to avoid making major hiring mistakes along the way.

Improve sales skills

The Buyer Facilitator sales training is an easy-to-follow sales process that will differentiate your company from your competitors and improve your close ratio and profit margins. With how difficult it is to remain relevant in a crowded services market, training your sales team to operate as buyer facilitators will set your business apart from the competition.

Exceed revenue goals

Many construction and contractor companies promote from within as their leaders already know the company culture, clientele, pace of work, and suite of products and services.  Sales Leadership training develops the leadership skills needed to successfully transition into and perform the Sales Manager role effectively.

Reducing Churn and Improving Conversions

Contractors need a seamless sales and recruiting process to remain competitive. When businesses or independent clients hire a contracting or construction company for their project, delivering a high level of service is critical to creating a successful long-term relationship. It’s not just about closing the first deal and collecting a check. The most competitive and longstanding contracting businesses rely heavily on solid sales and recruiting strategies to lower turnover, reduce wasted resources, and maximize selling opportunities when they become available. Is your contracting company paying enough attention to these parts of your business?

Sales challenges construction and contractor companies face

  • People selling are typically not salespeople. Without proper training, they sell by educating clients and not asking questions to qualify or disqualify their prospects.
  • Ineffective prospect conversations lead to a longer sales cycle and a poor close ratio.
  • Use recruiters better at selling candidates on the company than screening for the right sales skills.
  • Typically Sales Managers are more focused on the numbers than on coaching their teams to be better salespeople.

With Topaz and our suite of sales, recruitment, and leadership training modules, our clients can make hiring decisions with confidence that we will train their new employees to lead, communicate, and close deals with sustained long-term success. We equip our contracting and construction clients to operate more efficiently, develop sustainable and impactful habits, and learn how to facilitate the ultimate buyer experience for their customers.
