“The Retail Sales Academy really resonated with my staff – even the ones who’ve been with me a while. Now my customers are getting the amazing service that I want them to receive and after just one month, I saw a 15% increase in my average sale!

Cathy McKillip, Wish Upon A Quilt
Raleigh, NC

“It’s so important to train to make the gap in your average sale smaller. Back in the day, our Gap was $50-120 between our best and worst sales people! Progress is what we continue to work on and the Retail Sales Academy PLUS is the KEY!!!!”

Angela Skogen, Cooks On Main
Williston, ND

“Before implementing the 6 Steps to the Perfect Purchase, our Average Sale was $62. Now we’re consistently at $85.

Carly Patryluk, House Of Paws Pet Boutique

I love WhizBang!’s Retail Sales Academy. I’ve been in retail since high school and this sales training is spot on!”

Tom, an employee at Anstead’s Tobacco
Fayetteville, NC

“The Retail Sales Academy has made a huge difference! Not only am I seeing overall sales increases in my stores, but the individual employee improvement is amazing. As just one example, Christy increased her items per sale by 80% and more than doubled her total sales volume!”

Cathy Nagle-Ervin, Eastern National
Operating National Park Gift Shops

“We jumped on your Retail Sales Academy right away. The results speak for themselves – a 10.6% increase in the average ticket. So far my return on investment is $7,099 for a $36 to $1 ROI and the month isn’t over yet! That is better than any marketing campaign I have ever implemented.”

Rolf Williams, Jerrol’s
Ellensburg, WA

WV Quilts

Michelle Hill, WV Quilts, Suffolk, VA

“As of January 2, I have instructed my staff to never say, “May I help you?” and to instead engage our customers in conversations and show products. We learned how to do this using the Retail Sales Academy. The difference… My average sales PER DAY is $309 MORE! Yes, that’s 33% more in January and this is just 19 days into the Retail Sales Academy.”

Michelle Annarino, Michelle’s Hybrid Fashion, Suffolk, VA

“We just started the Retail Sales Academy at my store. It’s really fun, and all my girls are learning. (me too!) — We’re just three weeks in, and I’m VERY pleased. I feel like we were all ‘good’ at Customer Service before, but now we are good AND confident! — Not to mention ALL THE SELLINGGGGG!”

Bob Zechel, Cloud Nine Pajamas, Edmonton, AL

“Our average sale has increased by 9% since our staff have completed the Retail Sales Academy. That means adding about $120,000 to our yearly sales… and our staff has only started using the techniques learned. We fully expect that they will get better at helping our customers, particularly with the ongoing homework as they will constantly be working to improve. One staff member even increased her average sales by 33%!”

Debra Purdy - Retail Sales Academy Plus Testimonial

Debra Purdy, Windsor, Ontario

“Thanks to my Red Hot Help Wanted Ad, I had over 100 applicants for the part-time sales positions I was looking to fill and found two incredible new team members. They LOVE the Retail Sales Academy and are carefully putting everything they’re learning into practice. They’ve only been on the sales floor for a total of nine days now and they are already matching my top salesperson in results! I’m so excited!”

“I’m very interested to hear from people who use the Retail Sales Academy PLUS…”

A member of our WhizBang! Retailers Facebook Group asked what other retail store owners who are already using the Retail Sales Academy PLUS thought of this amazing retail sales training. Here are their responses…

Sheri Fowler Retail Sales Training Review
We love it! Once we got it, we committed to doing (mostly) weekly staff meetings where we watched the videos, filled out worksheets, discussed, etc. Not only did we all learn so much, but it fostered a sense of community within the staff that has lasted for years. Our guys still have ‘ Bob Negen’ jokes and not a week goes by without someone quoting the system. Yesterday was all about ‘not selling from your own wallet’ (a lesson we have covered often and STILL have problems doing it! 🙂 🙂 🙂Here is the bottom line, though…. if you buy it, and don’t commit to doing it, it will not do you any good. So really jump in and go for it. It is worth it! I promise!!”

Anna Huthmaker – Atlanta, GA

“I took it as an employee with the previous owner. It made me a great salesperson. It gave me confidence to be able to talk to people. (Horribly shy)

Now as an owner, signed up for Plus for my team. It is definitely what helped me go from employee, to management to owner.”

Cindy McFaden Samartino – Warrenton, VA

 

“Just do it. Your staff will be better and your customers will benefit too”

Bill Atkins – Red Bank, NJ

 

“What was an already amazing tool just went to a whole new level with Plus. Buy it now. You won’t regret it.”

Terri Willett Crowder – Fredericksburg, VA

“Worth it! All my new staff go through it and then there are further professional development videos once they get the certificate. We also watch videos from it during Team Meetings and discuss it in depth in relation to our products/store. So, it is a great retail sales training system for continuous improvement, not just once-and-done. A real lifesaver in terms of training new people and my time, too!”

Cyndi Wells – Los Alamos, NM

“Do it. This is one investment that is truly worth it. When I first met Bob at a trade show, I sat down with him for a private consultation. I showed him how my business had increased about 20% after I bought my store from the previous owners, and he helped me make a plan for my next increases. He promised me my next 20% increase would come from instituting the RSA with my staff, and he was right. We maintain a staff of about 25 people, and all their retail sales training comes from the RSA. We create monthly incentives about every other month to make sure the team is keeping current on their training. It really defines the whole culture of our store and the service and personality our customers can rely on. I can’t tell you how many compliments and positive reviews we receive for our staff’s incredible service. And sales have just continued to go up every year. We started the RSA in 2017, and our sales have doubled since then. Really – you need to give it a try. I’m pretty sure Bob and Susan guarantee your happiness with your purchase, and you can cancel at any time, but you won’t want to. 😉”

Christy Weflen – Hugo, MN

“I use it to train all our retail staff. It really changes the way they perceive “selling.” It also keeps us using the same techniques and terminology so our service is consistent no matter who is working. Very helpful.”

Sharon Town Lee – Santa Monica, CA

 

“I love it so much. It’s so professional, and something that my team looks forward to doing! I’m seeing IMMEDIATE results!!!”
