What We Do
As Trusted Advisors we provide Exec support to fastrack Sales Growth and move the business up multiple levels.
Working as a safe pair of hands, we undertake project based sales engagements with defined outcomes.
Open and In House sales training courses for Business Development, Account Management & Entrepreneurs.
1-2-1 and Group Coaching for Salespeople utilising our unique Work Based Learning system.
Our sweet spot is helping companies develop sales campaigns and then using those campaigns to provide real life training scenarios for their teams. We especially like helping small and mid-market companies take on the giants and big brands in their industry.
The sales campaigns we work with our clients to create are simple, straightforward and effective. They range from simple campaigns for technology services, SaaS and more complex Enterprise sales to large multinational corporations.
Our approach keeps salespeople out of the “classroom” and focusses on learning by doing. Everything we do is supported by live coaching where we are supporting sales teams when they need it the most.
We love sales and have a very practical and hands on approach. Hence one Microsoft Business Manager described Klozers as the ‘Sat Nav for Sales Success’.
With a combined experience of over 100 years in B2B sales, the Klozers team have worked with Startups, SMEs, Mid Market and Enterprise Organisations such as Microsoft, RBS & Vodaphone.
In addition to the many Technology companies we have worked with, we have also supported businesses in Telecoms, Insurance, Financial Services, Manufacturing, Business Services, Oil & Gas.
We provide Adjunct Teaching Support to the Masters in Entrepreneurship programmes at Strathclyde Business School.
In addition to working locally we have clients throughout the UK, mainland Europe, the USA & Canada.
Why we're different
Traditionally sales training companies have focussed on Outbound sales and supported their clients with Business Development, Sales Process, Account Management etc.
Whilst all of those things are important Outbound is only half the picture. In addition to our Outbound strategies, we are experts at Inbound also. We don’t say this lightly and are happy to show you how we generate a consistent flow of Inbound leads for our own business – we practice what we preach.
The world has moved on and selling is changing at a rapid place. Talk to us and find out how you can build a powerful Inbound and Outbound sales engine.
We are pleased to kick off January 2022 with the announcement that our Sales Blog was announced as a finalist in the Top Sales Awards in the category of Top Sales & Marketing Company Blog.
With 10 of the 12 finalists coming from the US Klozers was the only Sales company from the United Kingdom who reached the final.
The Klozers Sales Blog was created to demonstrate best practice in Inbound selling and as of January 2022 has an average page rank in Google of 16.41. Through 2021 the blog consistently generated new leads which accounted for 22% of turnover.
