JERRY CROCKFORD at Tweed Business Breakfast OCT 21

Jerry CrockfordThe October Business Breakfast at the Function Room Blue Owl Restaurant COMFORT INN Tweed Heads 7am Wednesday October21st is all about your Sales and your Internet Positioning— and how to to improve your marketing success.

While there may be some people out there who are just trembling with excitement at the thought of spending money with you, the majority of your potential customers will be scattered across a spectrum that includes (but isn’t limited to):
• Being slightly aware of having a problem that you can solve
• Sort of understanding what they need – but not being quite sure
• Investigating their options (including your competitors)
• Being close to a decision, but not quite ready to whip out their wallet
The questions for you are:
• How do you give them what they’re looking for at each stage?
• And how do you keep them moving through the sales funnel?
I’ve stepped out the answers for you in the video, with practical ideas you can use to get the job done.

Generating leads is a big subject, and I haven’t covered everything (I’d be out of breath and you’d be sick of the sight of me) on the one video. But I’ve put some pretty solid ideas in there that I’m sure you’ll find helpful.

To watch my sales funnel video, please email john@businessexcellence.net.au
We’ve also put a transcript on the site if you’d prefer to read it.

Anyway we hope this has given you some interesting thought starters. I’ll see you next time in our quest to get you:
• More customers
• Who spend more
• More often
