Title: You do not want to be considered just the best at what you do.


1
  • You do not want to be considered just the best
    at what you do.
  • You want to be known as the only one who does
    what you do.
  • Bill Graham, Concert Promoter
  • Courtesy of Paul Yeomans, USA Marketing.

  • My mother thanks you,
  • my father thanks you,
  • my sister thanks you,
  • … and I thank you!

Maintaining Relationships in the Digital Age
  • More Important than Ever
  • More Choices than Ever
  • Easier than Ever!
  • Presented by
  • Nowell C. Wisch, MAS
  • National Sales Manager, TradeNet
  • Rachael Davila Owner PromoWeb Service

4
First of all…
FREAK OUT
5
Todays Goal
  • Understand PERSONAL activities.
  • Identify PROCESS activities.
  • Add 3 new Relationship building tools into your
    work activities.
  • Pledge to do them for 30 days.

6
What benefit does this program provide?
  • Help you strengthen your relationships and
    increase your personal value.
  • Provide tools to anticipate client needs.
  • Avoid the ruts in long term client relationships
  • Help you make more with less effort.

7
The Identification Challenge
  • Which activities affect RELATIONSHIPS
  • What activities effect PROCESS
  • BOTH are HOW not WHY oriented
  • Pay attention to ACTIVITY not MOTIVATION

8
Whats The Payoff?
  • Your name remains Top Of Mind with your
    clients.
  • You make more ales in less time.
  • Learn to live with higher margin.

9
The Challenge
Keeping current relationship strong and find new
business

Sales Profits
Investment ( and time)
Most new and growing businesses focus on
acquisition
Most profits are generated by repeat customers
You know you need to keep relationships going.
Do you know how to effectively budget your time
and spend your money?
10
Repeat Customers are MORE VALUABLE than Gold!
  • It is 6-7 times more expensive to gain a
    customer than to retain a customer.
  • A 5 increase in retention yields profit
    increases of 25 to 100.
  • Repeat customers spend 67 percent more than
    new ones.
  • After only a few positive purchases, a
    satisfied customer can refer up to seven new
    customer!
  • Sources
  • Harvard Business Review
  • Bain and Company, 2002

DO NOT FORM A CLIENT RETENTION STRATEGY AFTER THE
CLIENT HAS FLED! Create a strategy to KEEP the
business, not recapture the business.
11
The REAL VALUE of a loyal client
They are Very, Very Valuable!
12
So what do I do, Nowell?

  • NO TOMORROW!
  • RELAX… there are only 3

15
1
  • What else is on your desk that I can help you
    with today?

16
2
  • What else is on your desk that you dont think I
    can help you with today?

17
3
  • Do you know anyone who might need what I provide?
  • Relationships breed new relationships.
  • Referrals are the best way to build business.
  • People like to share success.

18
Why ask for referrals?

Sales Profits
Investment ( and time)

35

37
Email communications are ideal for all types of
businesses
Why Email Marketing?
  • Supplier to Distributor
  • Distributor to End User
  • Featured Products
  • Specials Offers
  • Events

38
The Answer is Email!
  • Its Cost-effective Direct Mail vs. Email
  • Direct Mail can be too expensive for Small
    Businesses, but Email Marketing drastically
    reduces the cost. Making it viable for
    businesses of all sizes and types- saving time
    and money!

39
Why Outlook Fails
  • Standard Email Programs (e.g. Outlook, Hotmail)
    are not designed for group email messaging
  • Limited of emails sent at one time
  • List break up more susceptible to filters
  • Message can be filtered, blocked or undelivered
    without notice
  • No tracking and reporting of email results
  • If messages perceived as spam, entire corporate
    email server can be blocked by ISPs

Social Network Programs Why people use them
  • I use LinkedIn for introductions to other
    business people.  I was trying to assemble a
    panel of entrepreneurs in Silicon Valley for a
    client and I located prospects via LinkedIn and
    used my network to get introduced.  It worked
    very well.
  • Like FaceBook (which I use for personal, rather
    than professional reasons), I see it as both a
    networking opportunity and a way to keep in
    "loose" touch with people. It offers a quick
    snapshot of what people are doing and what they
    are working on without intruding with a phone
    call or an email. It also gives me the
    opportunity to let people know what I am doing,
    what I can offer and who I know.
  • The benefits I reap are knowing that my contact
    info is kept up to date. (Did you know that SOME
    people in this industry change companies??)  I
    can view it at my leisure WITHOUT having my inbox
    crowded by info about those I don't care to keep
    up with. 
  • I use LinkedIn, Plaxo Pulse, and FaceBook for
    networking. It may seem a bit redundant and maybe
    ridiculous to have this many networking platforms
    ... but ... not all of the people I'm connected
    with are on all three. My initial reasoning was
    that I just launched a new business and it was a
    way to get the message out. Now I find pleasure
    into logging and seeing what other people are up
    to.
