What you do speaks so loud
Our February article on the Profits Plus website is entitled,
"What you do
speaks so loud". The story was written as a result of a personal
experience in the pool and spa industry. The question asked is, "You
may talk the talk, but do you and your staff walk the walk?"
February 2002 e-ret@iler advisory: More of what you say
Last month, we mentioned that we had added a couple of new pages to
the site in which we listed the top ten and bottom ten things to say
to customers (Kind of like a David Letterman list). While you may find
it to be interesting reading, the question is how can you use it?
suggestion is that you make it a part of the staff education meetings
that you are having every other week. List them on a chart that is posted
in your classroom, and have a contest. Assign one person to be the salesperson
and another to be the customer. The contest is to see how long the salesperson
can go without saying one of the bottom ten items. The winner of the
contest is the salesperson that goes the longest without saying one
of them. The winner can get a prize like an extra hour off for lunch,
and with the lunch paid for by you.

Our Power Promoting Idea of the month:
Our Power Promoting Idea of the month comes from Tom's book and seminar
entitled, "Power Promoting." Parking Lot Coupons. The business
where we saw this idea noticed there were other businesses near by,
but they did not see the same customers in each business. Thinking that
each business had their own "set" of customers, (which is
true), they co-marketed with many of these businesses by creating coupons
on which each business had printed a coupon. The creative business printed
their coupon on one side, and the second business printed theirs on
the back side.
each business handed out coupons to their customers, and put them on
the windshields of cars in their parking lot, they were introducing
themselves to hundreds of new potential customers. Our creative business
person also mentioned that by doing this with several businesses, the
price for the printing was so low that the amount paid by each of the
other businesses was enough to pay for the entire coupon - our creative
business person paid nothing! What a great idea!
