Who I Am & Why I Want You to Succeed

I am a sales trainer and presenter who’s been marinating in the print, signage, label, and packaging industries for the last, oh, 35 years or so.

My sales career started in 1982 and I was fortunate to have been “classically trained” in the fundamentals. The direct sales experience I have in these Graphic Arts industries has earned me great credibility with my audiences and clients. While Sales is Sales – that is to say, universal – there are some challenges to selling print that reps and owners believe are unique to them. [Read More]

    "I've been following Bill since I started in print sales, and he sure delivers. This book is not only sage advice, but a good read, front to back. His tips are invaluable, his writing is humorous, yet to the point. I also recommend this book to those in any type of sales, not just print, but I do appreciate the relevance to the printing industry. Putting Bill's tips into practice has yielded me a great success, and if you follow them they will greatly improve your results as well. Thanks, Bill!"— Amazon.com Review

    "Bill Farquharson is a legend in the print industry and has written a must-read book for anyone in print sales, marketing, customer service or biz dev. His practical, feet-on-the-street advice will benefit salespeople of all stripes, whether experienced, newbie, successful, on the sales roller coaster or in the C Suite. Different parts of the book will appeal to different people, but this is a good thing. Many of Bill's tips apply far beyond the print industry, so I'd recommend this book for anyone in any "tough sale" industry. A couple of examples: overcoming sales objections and his proven prospecting process."— Amazon.com Review
