Praise for the Adrep.info sales & design courses
"I was skeptical about 'online' training at first, but after doing the Induction course myself, we've now decided to put all of our new reps through it.".
Kelvin Maude. Advertising Manager. McPherson Media Group.
"The dialog and curriculum is excellent. The interface smart, crisp inviting and interesting. Feels good.".
Darrell Morrison. Spectator-Observer Partnership.
"I always look forward to the tips. When I first started as a sales rep I discounted, but after reading your tips I am having more productive discussions with clients. Samoa is a small place where televison advertising rules, but I am now handling objections and customers are now listening to me and taking interest. My objection handling has become more professional and I am glad that I came across Adrep.info for a lot of things have changed from my time management to objection handling and presentations.".
Adrian Lal. Samoa Observer.
"Adrep.info is a valuable tool for introducing our new staff to the world of newspaper advertising and refreshing the skills of our established people. The courses are easy to use, even for those who are not computer savvy. The interactive nature of the course and the instant feedback available is well received by our staff who have found it beneficial in improving their sales and ad design skills.".
Jane Bowles. Human Resources Manager - The Examiner. Launceston.

Jared Loughnan. Managing Editor - Yarrawonga Chronicle.
"I went to a client in the hospitality industry who was considering an eighth page advert over three editions. He mentioned he would like to include details of a new menu he was offering. I plucked the "strategy before ad size" tip from adrep.info, sketched a rough concept on the spot at a half page size including an image of his new menu and he upsized the lot."
Rebecca Downie. Riverine Herald. Echuca.
"A small business client with little advertising history indicated they were interested in gaining regular market presence. I proposed an investment far above any of their previous advertising and not surprisingly, they refuted my proposal. However, I considered adrep.info’s recommendation to never discount upon an initial rejection and outlined reasons why they needed advertising on a regular basis. The client took all of my comments on board and is now in our newspaper fortnightly."
Rebecca Downie. Riverine Herald.
"Adrep.info provides a crucial resource to sales managers. The tangible benefits of quality training are often noted, but few sales managers have the skills, time or resources to do it. Not only does adrep.info provide a solid basis of fundamentals for new reps, the messages are reinforced weekly. Real-world advice that makes us better at our jobs is where adrep.info really shines. It pays for itself very quickly, and many times over.".
Haydn O'Neale. General Manager. Riverine Herald. Echuca.
"As someone with no previous sales experience, adrep.info gave me the confidence to approach clients with a clear set of processes empowering me with the knowledge that I would say the right thing at the right time, and in turn, hopefully walk away with a contented client and a sale."
Rebecca Downie. Riverine Herald.
Praise for the Adrep Insight Newsletter
"Thanks for providing this fantastic material. It's short enough to read at my desk every week but it's still full of useful, practical info. It has really helped pull the many aspects of the the kaleidoscope of advertising into some perspective for me. Thanks and keep up the good work."
Cameron Outridge, Editor, The Range News, Maleny.
"What a great newsletter. This is just the sort of regular motivating reminder we need. Already looking forward to next week's. "
Melanie, Finley SRN.
Praise for the Adrep SMS Mini Motivators
"The SMS mini-motivators are a great reminder and a perfect tool to reinforce training principles. I was about to launch into a 3 day selling campaign when I received my latest SMS. It reminded me that my focus should have been providing great advertising advice, not trying to guess what the client could afford. I went into the campaign with a different mindset and it really paid dividends."
Regan Malseed. Ad Manager. Portland Observer.
