Our Story

Fred Steensma developed the Simply Selling System, following a frustrating start in corporate sales. During his sales career, he regularly attended sales training seminars and sessions, some of the sales course Fred attended are well known international programs.

However, any increase he experienced in sales success was temporary. He always returned to sales mediocrity. He began to notice that the sales training he received was just theory. In fact so much theory, Fred considers he could have been a professor in sales.

Gradually through his own experiences, he pieced bits and pieces together and created his own sales process. He quickly excelled in sales and moved into sales management.  Others soon sort his sales expertise and this led to Fred formalising and sharing his Simply Selling System.

As Fred shared his sales process, he saw that there were many others who were struggling in this industry, and so decided it was time to share his system and help fellow sales professionals by creating Simply Selling.

“Sales is one of the few industries where when you leave, you leave a part of yourself. It can be one of the most rewarding careers, and most destructive. I know people who have experienced failure after failure. After hearing ‘no’ too many times, they leave sales. And, by that time they’ve lost a piece of their self-worth and self-esteem.

The Simply Selling System can change all of this. You can sell with the confidence of knowing you’re using a system that works, you will retain your self-worth and remain in control.”

Fred Steensma
