50 bike retailers get the chance for a complementary training session aimed at assisting IBD sales growth

Turn your store into a ‘sales machine’

Free training is being offered to bike retailers in May to help turn their businesses into ‘sales machines’, courtesy of ACT/ActSmart and Retail Performance Specialists.

ACT/ActSmart have negotiated the free sessions, which follow a series of popular seminars at Madison’s IceBike earlier this year.

Three training sessions will be held across the country for up to 50 candidates and are aimed at helping drive sales and bring customers into stores. The course is being pitched as an opportunity for retailers to discover whether Retail Performance Specialists (RPS), the course provider, is the right retail partner for the dealer’s business.

The training sessions will take place across the country in London on Friday May 1st, Birmingham on Wednesday May 6th and Leeds on Friday May 8th. ActSmart told BikeBiz that RPS has an excellent track record of building sales volumes and putting processes and tools in place to boost top line growth.

The course is being aimed at bricks and mortar retailers with a turnover in excess of £100,000. Dealers interested in using an action plan for their business and investing in the programme itself are being targeted.

RPS also confirmed that it is on the look out for 20 people for the first of a Business Building Programme, which will run over six months and will be Cytech accredited.

Bike dealers should contact jo.james@rps-global.com to register their interest.
