Securing business sales has traditionally been conducted successfully in-person. In today’s fast paced, global economy, it can be difficult to land personal meetings to secure a new or repeat sales contract. Virtual sales conversations via phone or using other technologies are an increasingly popular and convenient way to conduct sales.
At the third quarterly Women TIES Greater Albany & Saratoga Event ‘Tips to Making Virtual Sales Feel Like In-Person Sales,” Lynn Hidy, President of, a woman entrepreneur working from the Adirondacks, will educate and inspire women entrepreneurs and businesswomen on how to make phone conversations feel like in-person conversations to their prospects and customers.
You will leave this session with a better understanding of how to make the person on the other end of the phone feel like you’re there, along with the first ever hardcopy of the UpYourTeleSales soon to be released communication trilogy: Softening Statements, It’s All About The Pauses, and Ask Questions To Listen.
This event is being co-sponsored by the Women’s Business Center of New York State. Learn more about their free services to help women entrepreneurs at
