Following the launch of our “Boost Your Sales: Footwear” course last year, we’re rolling out 12 more Retail College classes over the next several months to help outdoor specialty retailers boost their sales in numerous categories.

We know that you have other training tools at your disposal, but what’s unique about our courses is that they’re designed for retailers and taught by retailers. And they’re 100 percent FREE to qualified retailers and retail employees. These courses are aimed at educating employees on the latest gear tech and most proven sales techniques, whether you’re a seasoned vet or brand new to world of outdoor retail.

We’ve partnered with a successful outdoor specialty shop to create each course, relying on their expert knowledge on how to sell. We’ve also tapped seasoned sales veteran, Malcolm Daly, to create a series of informative videos in which he offers his insights from the sales floor and lessons learned.

Right now, you can access the “How to Sell Portable Power” course, where retailers will learn how to create a display, understand solar panels and different battery storage sizes, engage with different kinds of customers, and close more sales. Enroll here.

This is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of additional courses we’re planning for 2020.
