Our sales leadership trained over 850 media consultants and their managers in the first quarter. The remainder will be trained in the second quarter. The consultants now walk in to see each business owner in a new way, showing the owner an analysis of the business local's media profile on the consultant's iPad, explaining how SuperMedia can help them secure more leads and customers and providing examples of the results that we are obtaining for other clients like them.
