In this industry, differentiation can be the deciding factor between a close and your prospect going with a competitor's product. It's critical for your sales team to be knowledgeable and smart.

Cost is a factor, but any channel that can increase your industry profile is worth considering.
Make sure you invest in a first-rate website. These days, language schools frequently access vendors through online channels. An investment in a content-rich, user-oriented website is a must.
