[January 24, 2024 – Sandra Beals]
A group of Direct Wine Sales Specialists with the DTC Consultant Network have teamed up to provide live web training sessions in 2024. Winery owners, stakeholders, managers, and frontline staff will obtain much needed skills to remain relevant and grow consumer contact lists. Winery consolidation in the US continues to play out and competitive threats from alternate beverage categories has cut into the total volume of wine sold and shipped direct to consumer last year.
Wine Club Workshop – Great Takeaways!Sarah Johnson, Wine Club Manager
“Sandra – thank you for coming to DAOU and sharing your knowledge with us. There were some great takeaways from our workshop sessions that I plan on implementing to increase our wine club retention and continue to evolve our membership as a whole.”
How will winery teams attract new consumers at all direct sales channels and retain brand loyalists? Now is the time to ensure that ideal blends of talent, tools, and technologies are in place to cut through the competitive noise and attract like-minded audiences. Start with a DTC Wine Workshops Mystery Shop Program to review results and recommendations from a 40-Point Scorecard. Leverage these insights to identify opportunities and sharpen tools already in place.
Tremendous Experience with Hospitality TrainingDavid Griffiths, DTC Director
“When it came time to invest in winery hospitality training for our DTC team at Cakebread Cellars, we knew we wanted to work with Sandra at DTC Wine Workshops. She brought a tremendous amount of experience to our trainings and worked with us to make sure our timelines were met. We learned a lot throughout the process and now have a much better understanding of priorities and procedures around service.”
