How Sandler supports you throughout the process:

Held at the Sandler Corporate Headquarters in Owings Mills, Maryland five times per year, we use our Initial Training program to help get our franchisees off to a quick start.
Each franchisee is assigned a personal business coach. Your coach will have decades of experience in sales, leadership, training, and in many cases, were successful Sandler franchisees themselves. The coaches will help you personalize and internalize the Sandler concepts and business model so you can learn to practice what we preach.
Twice a year in Baltimore, we gather hundreds of Sandler trainers from around the world to share best practices, announce new products and services, and network with each other to build our businesses. Also, once a year in Orlando, we convene with our clients at the world-class Sandler Summit event.
Your franchise comes with a customizable website template and the marketing support you need to help you generate leads, close prospects, and retain your client base. The National Branding Campaign is a pooled resource for the national promotion of the Sandler brand, public relations, and strategic advertising initiatives. We provide sales and marketing materials, marketing boot camps, social media calendars, and other marketing content assets such as blogs, podcasts, webinars, videos, newsletters, and books.
Held bi-weekly on Mondays and Thursdays, the Sandler coaches lead a best practice discussion for the franchisees. Mondays are beginner-level topics, and Thursdays are advanced sessions. Both are designed to cover Sandler material as well as important business skills, strategies, and tactics.
Our Learning Management System (LMS), known as Sandler Online, houses thousands of additional assets to help you and your clients. Our trainer toolbox includes PowerPoints, Leader’s Guides, and worksheets for training sessions. You can view online courses, search resource libraries, create your talk tracks in a Virtual Playbook, and scour the archives from David Sandler himself as well as past internal conferences.
