A few years back, I decided to seek out new agents to sell the goods my company produces. It did not take long to generate interest, given the type of commission I was offering. The issue was how to train these new agents and keep costs within reason. That's when a friend suggested creating training videos.
The approach worked great. I streamed professionally prepared videos by means of web conferences, then held open discussions with my new agents. It worked so well that I still use this method when we take on new agents. The cost of producing the videos was negligible compared to the fact those agents were able to start making sales immediately.
If you're thinking of using audio visual tools to train new agents or employees, let's talk. I'll tell you what worked for us and how fast we began to reap the rewards.
