Today's consumers are looking for certainty and comfort as they make their purchasing decisions. Set yourself apart from the competition with the distinction NASP certification lends to your level of expertise and credibility. Consumers want to be influenced by someone knowledgeable with their best interests in mind. Time is money, and consumers know that when they work with a certified sales professional they are getting the most for both.
If you're serious about your career in sales, it's time to get the training you need to become a Certified Professional Salesperson™. It takes more than hard work and persistence to be successful. It takes skill, ongoing training and a great deal of self-assessment and self-investment. In today's market, can you really afford to continue being one of the pack as a salesperson?
If you are reading this right now, it means you consider yourself a sales professional and want to continue to expand and grow in your sales skill and earnings. The NASP Certification Program is designed to do exactly that, with three available levels of certification, each building upon the previous level; think of the levels as your undergraduate, masters and doctoral studies.
Becoming an NASP Certified Professional Salesperson means you set yourself apart. You get the "credentials" to show the education, training, and experience you have to potential clients or employers, just as a doctor has the "M.D." to show his patients. As competitive as the market is for high-paying sales positions, every edge helps. Being not only an NASP member, but also a Certified Professional Salesperson, demonstrates "third party" credibility for your sales skills and competency to every potential employer, distinguishing you from all the rest!
Have you ever attended a sales seminar or read a new sales book, gotten excited about what you learned and how you were going to use it, but only been frustrated in the end because you didn't get the results you expected? Where the information seemed good at the time, and you got excited, but it didn't translate into real results?
At first, everything seems fine. You're motivated to implement the new strategies. In fact, you're on top of the world. But when you return to the office to face multiple deals, 25 unanswered e-mails, a price issue on your biggest sale, or even a sick child at home, you promise yourself you'll start tomorrow.
The next day you're excited about trying the new strategies, but for one reason or another, you never get around to it. This happens day after day and by the end of the month, you're back in a familiar rut. As time goes by, you lose your motivation, forget the concepts you learned and, for the most part, end up doing things the way you always have.
The problem is most people are only dealing with the effect, not the cause, of their performance issues. They operate on the mistaken belief that learning new information is enough for them to be able to take that information and automatically integrate it into their daily lives. But the simple truth is this – it's not enough to learn different things; we have to learn to do things differently.
