Can anyone help a friendly geek attempting to learn the mystic hidden art that is sales?
I am in the process of putting together a company to provide ASP.Net training in Leeds. The only thing I am lacking is sales!
Can anyone out there advise me on the best approach to take, help or books on writing sales copy, where/if/how to advertise..?
From what I gather if I get this stuff wrong I could do more harm than good so I am hoping to get it right from the start!

I am looking for a training venue so I can provide ASP.NET training courses. What I am looking for is a self-contained classroom with computers for 10-12 people. It would be nice to have easy access from public transport and parking. I would be concentrating on leeds initially. Having said that it would be great if the company has locations in manchester, york, edinburgh, birmingham and/or london. I found a chain that looked good but the prices were stupidly high despite the fact they only had windows 98 machines, no projector or whiteboard. Please help! If you are interested in attending a ASP.NET class get in contact too
