Most companies believe that having a GSA Schedule is critical to successfully selling to the government. You will hear this from colleagues, friends, and “experts” in the market. But the truth is that less than 50% of GSA Schedule holders successfully win contracts with their schedule. The challenge is that most companies don’t educate themselves properly before getting a GSA Schedule.
The first of many fallacies you’ll hear is that obtaining a GSA Schedule gives you access to the “low hanging fruit.” Unfortunately, this statement, and many like it, are just the marketing language of firms that target companies like yours, hoping you don’t know any better.
This webinar will walk you through the complete process for evaluating whether or not you need a GSA Schedule. You will also learn the most common reasons companies fail to use their schedule successfully and win contracts.
This webinar provides award-winning techniques and strategies that have directly helped companies win more than $1.8 Billion in government contracts.
