SAN FRANCISCO – (February 26, 2009): Good Vibrations (www.goodvibes.com), the legendary San Francisco-based company that takes pride in providing sex-positive products and the leader in adult retail education, is now offering a unique opportunity for higher learning through Good Vibrations University (GVU).
GVU is an interactive webinar program that brings sex-positive sex education directly to adult retailers. In a sex shop or at a pleasure party, profit depends on credible customer service. Sales staff need to be able to discuss all aspects of sex and sexual issues, in addition to having implicit product knowledge. With little time or resources to create their own informational programs, many retailers rely on senior staff to share their experience with new hires. This inconsistent training method often leads to gaps in knowledge.
GVU was created by Charlie Glickman, Ph.D, Good Vibrations Educational Program Manager. Not only does he have a Ph.D. in Adult Sexuality Education, Dr. Glickman also spent almost a decade assisting customers in the Good Vibrations stores. In 1999, he constructed the Sex Education Sales Associate (SESA) Training program for Good Vibrations employees, the most sex-positive and extensive retail sexual education program available in the industry.
"Excellent training gives staff the information and the confidence they need to help customers find the right products and increase sales," said Dr. Glickman, "I designed GVU to bring my extensive experience at Good Vibrations, and our more than 30 years in the industry, to retailers and pleasure party consultants."
All you need to enroll in Good Vibrations University is a computer with high-speed internet access and either a phone, headphones or set of attached speakers. While watching PowerPoint presentations, you'll listen to Dr. Glickman explain different types of sexual products, how they're used, care and cleaning info, responses to customer questions, tips on cross-selling, up-selling and much more. You can ask questions via the Chat function, by phone or USB microphone. GVU makes it easy to train a single new hire or your entire staff. With groups of 6 participants or more, sessions can be scheduled at tailored times.
Each GVU session costs $100, or you can purchase the series of 6 webinars for $500. Offering web-based trainings already eliminates travel expenses, and if you buy before April, you'll receive a significant discount as well. Now through March 31, 2009, individual GVU sessions are just $75 each; get the series of 6 for only $400.
