I get it.
Trying to figure out how to teach your students in such a challenging environment can drive a professor crazy.
I get it because I sit in your shoes.
Not only am I a sports executive, consultant and ticket sales trainer, but I’m also a professor, just like you. I teach a class in ticket sales and marketing at Johnson & Wales University in Charlotte and yep, this semester, it’s all online instead of in-person.
We originally created Group Sales Superstar to be an online ticket sales training program for teams but now, it is perfect for students willing to learn the skills necessary to get a job in sports and professors focused on teaching their students those skills.
Here are the details for the Group Sales Superstar class for Sports Management.
Online Ticket Sales Course Highlights:
- Training modules. There are 10 modules for students to dive into the tools and techniques on how to effectively sell group tickets to various types of organizations and is taken directly from The Ultimate Toolkit. The material is broken down in to bite-sized pieces in modules 10-15 minutes each for easy learning.
- Built in Quizzes. Each module has a quiz at the end for students to prove they have watched the module. The grading is done automatically for you.
- Role Play Videos. Students have to submit a Final Exam role play video through the program showing they have learned the skills taught on how sell group tickets.
- Grading Videos. As professor, you get to watch those videos and provide direct video feedback to the students to help them get better. You can give them a grade on their first attempt or tell them to try again after receiving your feedback.
- Resume Database. Once the students complete the training, if they choose to, they can upload their resume and their role play video to the site where more than 300 Ultimate Toolkit teams and colleges can see them and recruit your students for full-time and internship positions.
- You’ll also receive a class-wide session with Steve critiquing your efforts and reviewing a group sales Final Exam video.
- Each student receives a copy of the Group Sales Superstar Handbook and the Groups for Sellouts chapter of The Ultimate Toolkit as part of their enrollment in the class.
- Sample sales videos for students to learn from, complete with video feedback from Steve.
- Access to The Ultimate Toolkit Slack Channel to ask questions of other Toolkit teams and full-time salespeople and share ideas.
- Weekly podcast with Steve and industry professionals where students get new ticket ideas in 10 minutes or less in the Ten Minute Tix Talks podcast.
