IFlipTips is a note-taking and flash-flip card app for iPhone and iPad that can be used for a variety of professional and personal projects. The app is divided into three sections: iFlipCards, iTipsIdeas Cards, and, new with this version, iFlipSlides. iFlipCards allow you to create question and answer cards, iTips Ideas enable you to create quick reference cards, and iFlipSlides help you create presentations.
Preparing training sessions
Prepare for your training sessions using iTipsIdeas Cards. These digital flash cards enable you to create modules of training sessions in advance so you can feel confident in your delivery on the day. Each card can contain text, audio, video and images, all of which can help make your training more interesting.
Visual presentations can help keep participants engaged, so consider creating a display using iFlipSlides. This section of the app allows you to create slideshows without having to use a computer. Like the other cards, you can use a variety of formats on your slides, including text, image, video and audio. Each “card” becomes a slide in the presentation, and you can adjust the order of the slides as many times as you need.
Each section of iFlipTips has its own folders section, so you can organize your cards into different modules for different parts of the training. This means that, in the session itself, you don’t have to worry about omitting crucial information.
During the session
Using a variety of formats in your presentation holds people’s attention and helps them learn faster. Attendees will have different learning styles, and while some will benefit from hearing you talk about sales, others might learn quicker when they can read the information, or watch a re-enactment.
Consider creating videos and audio clips to demonstrate sales principles you’ve been teaching. For example, if you’ve just been teaching employees or course members about USPs (Unique Selling Points), then create an audio recording of a sales conversation between seller and potential client or a video demonstrating what using a USP looks like in action. This will make their training more effective, and add variety to the training session.
At the end of each section or module of the training, you can use the iFlipCards to test participants’ knowledge. These flashcards are slightly different, as they allow you to create question and answer cards. By preparing a quick quiz on the topic, you can test how much training attendees have learned during the session, and discover which topics you might need to cover again.
You can also use iFlipCards for personal preparation. If you have a question and answer time with participants at the end of the session, this section of the iFlipTips app allows you to prepare stock answers to questions you expect to receive.
After the session
iFlipTips isn’t just useful during a training session. You can also use the app to send notes to delegates or trainees afterwards using the sharing feature. Each iFlipTips card is shareable via email, Facebook and Twitter. Not only does this save you time and money printing and distributing physical resources at the event, but you can quickly and easily send attendees relevant information afterwards.
Whether you work with single clients or large groups, iFlipTips is an invaluable tool for sales training. Using the app, you can create engaging, informative sessions that help clients get results.
