Prospecting for new and repeat business is the key to sales success in today’s marketplace. Call reluctance, disorganization, outdated processes, lack of accountability, inconsistent training procedures all hinder salespeople’s success. Now there’s a resource to help them overcome these barriers and attract more prospects, retain more clients and drive more sales: The Producer’s Toolbox, a subscription-based, online learning and prospecting system from Steve Kloyda, The Prospecting Expert.

“Companies spend tens of thousands of dollars on recruiting and training salespeople,” Kloyda said. “They’re the engine that drives revenues.

About Steve Kloyda
Kloyda, The Prospecting Expert, began his sales career as a stockbroker in 1980. Without prior sales or business experience, he quickly developed telephone prospecting skills and disciplines that resulted in 180 new accounts in 8 months and a company record of nine new accounts in one day.

In 1989, he joined a sales training organization as vice president of sales, where he developed a weekly one-on-one coaching program for salespeople. Using tape-recorded sales calls, Kloyda illustrated which skills brought desired results and which didn’t. His collaborative hands-on approach, combined with positive feedback and reinforcement, brought better results for his salespeople.

Kloyda created the sales training company Telemasters, Inc. in 1990, based on the same strategies and methodologies he used to help his salespeople previously. After 20 years of teaching and coaching salespeople through Telemasters, Kloyda renamed the company The Prospecting Expert to better represent the vast array of tools available for salespeople today and more clearly reflect his vision for prospecting strategies in the 21st century.

A frequent speaker at corporate training events and industry conferences, Kloyda delivered the keynote at the 2011 InterWest Insurance Services Sales Exchange, and has spoken at The Council of Insurance Agents & Brokers, and the Million Dollar Round Table. He has been quoted and published in many industry trade magazines including the 2010 Insurance Agency Sourcebook and The Million Dollar Round Table Proceedings.

In addition to his blog, Kloyda can be found on social media streams,, and
