SEN to Host Design Sales Educational Program

Chicago, IL – SEN Design Group invites kitchen and bath designers and sales professionals to the Good-Better-Best Sales School, scheduled for September 8-9 at theMART in Chicago, IL. The GBB Sales School, sponsored by Custom Wood Products, Inc, Bridgewood Cabinetry and Exclusive Cabinet Agents LLC, will be conducted by SEN Design Group’s Senior Vice President, Dan Luck, an industry expert with over 43 years of experience.

The two-day program will deliver advanced training in the successful sales strategies that will help designers and sales professionals increase their gross profit margins by up to 40%. Participants will become proficient in the science of consumer decision-making, effectively drive the sale conversion and understand why the Good-Better-Best (GBB) selling system is so effective, according to SEN Design Group.

“As a cabinet rep wanting our dealers to maximize their sales and profitability, we are thrilled to be a partner in bringing this first class, impactful sales training program to the kitchen and bath industry,” says Vince Hodshire, principal of Exclusive Cabinet Agents, LLC.

“The GBB selling system leverages the prospect’s emotional engagement with the remodeling project,” says Luck. “Consumers like choice, but not too many choices. GBB pricing tiers remove the ‘to buy or not to buy’ step from the decision-making process.” Instead, it guides prospects through a pricing structure that offers a sense of empowerment. When consumers are presented with three options to choose from, most of them will select the middle option, which represents increased revenues.

“We at SEN Design Group seek to help businesses convert more sales and earn higher revenues,” adds Luck. “The GBB sales process has been proven to significantly increase gross profit margins, and this two-day program will give designers the most effective tools to achieve speedy closings.”

The regular tuition fee is $1,695 for this intensive two-day sales training program. Dealers who are part of a sponsor’s network can save $500, using a promotional code to register for $1,195. SEN members who have the SEN U annual education subscription as part of their membership can attend for under $300.

Building on the success of a nine-year partnership with the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) International Builders’ Show (IBS) to create Design & Construction Week® (DCW), KBIS and IBS will co-locate at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, from Feb. 8 -10, 2022.

The KBIS 2022 expo will include over 380,500 NSF and feature an expected 450 exhibitors, including legacy brands like GE Appliances, Kohler and SKS. Additionally, more than 40 new exhibitors such as Lefroy Brooks and CopperSmith will occupy nearly 20,000 NSF.

“We are very much looking forward to getting the industry back together at the start of the new year,” said Suzie Williford, NKBA exec. v.p. & CSO. “KBIS is not only a place for old friends and colleagues to have the chance to catch up, but also a chance for new faces to become part of this talented and inclusive community.”

“We’ve had such a great turnout in Orlando in past years and are excited to host this much-anticipated event in person again,” said Jason McGraw, CAE, CTS, group v.p., KBIS and CEDIA Expo, Emerald. “KBIS 2022 is slated to be one of the most impactful events of the industry, filled with the latest innovative products and programming.

Kitchen Magic Expands Services to Other Rooms

NAZARETH, PA Kitchen Magic, the Nazareth, PA-based kitchen remodeling/refacing company, has expanded its remodeling services to tackle additional rooms in the home, the company announced.

The company’s expanded efforts include solutions for laundry rooms, pantries and storage solutions throughout the home, Kitchen Magic said. To complement this initiative, the company has launched a new line of affordable cabinetry named Barwen. Homeowners will also have access to custom cabinet upgrades, according to Kitchen Magic, which serves Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island.

“The initiative to apply 40+ years of innovation and experience to rooms beyond the kitchen was put into motion as the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns uncovered emerging client needs aimed at making homes more efficient in the work-from-home era,” said Kitchen Magic President Brett Bacho. “We jumped at the opportunity to create solutions that streamline and declutter the home … as well as introduce Kitchen Magic to a wider group of homeowners seeking remodeling.”
