Business Solutions: Prospecting Tools to Super Charge Productivity
 

by Steve Rolla, Senior Partner, Pros Elite Group
Each one of these indicators has at its root, a function of finding or developing quality prospects. Office imaging prospecting is typically limited in scope to cold calling, tele-selling for appointments, blitzes, mailers, and managing the base of current customers (MIF) etc. Another thing is typical of office imaging dealers/sales professionals - they hate prospecting. They hate prospecting because it has become far less productive / call in developing the leads that lead to closeable business.

Good Selling: Fundamentals beat Flash
 

by David Fellman, President of David Fellman & Assoc.
The guys I play basketball with call me “Old School.” I think that has more to do with my age than my playing style, but I consider it a compliment nonetheless. And the fact of the matter is that my game is a lot more fundamental than flash. An attendee at a recent seminar called me a dinosaur. “I came here looking to find some new ideas,” he said. “You didn’t teach me anything about selling comprehensive solutions at the C-Level in the digital arena, just the same old ‘prospect-and-follow-up-and-ask-good-questions crud I’ve been hearing from my boss. Dinosaurs are extinct, man, and you’re not helping me any by telling me to sell like one.” In case you’re interested, this guy was sent to my seminar because he’s at 60% of the sales level he’s supposed to be at after a year and a half on the job. Personally, I think he’s a whole lot closer to being extinct than I am.

IT Services Convergence: The Best Defense is a Good Offense
 

by Gary Stevens, CEO, Agiliant
Convergence has been a fashionable topic lately. Of particular popularity has been the idea that the conventional lines between managed IT (information technology) services and managed print/output services are quickly graying and will soon disintegrate. While fashionable speculation is always aplenty, the most substantial opportunities and derailments are often derived from a business leader’s ability to sift through the fodder in order to identify, evaluate and appropriately react (or preferably “pro-act”) to the trends and changes that are imminent in their respective markets.

3 Real Reasons for Social Media
 

by Corey Smith, Dealer Marketing Systems
In your own office equipment business, you may have contemplated adding social media to your marketing efforts. However, many small and medium-sized business owners don’t know where to start, and wonder if there is real value in running a social media campaign for their business. Let me assure you, there is tremendous networking and branding value in this initiative, and at little cost, as long as you realize that social media’s primary purpose is about being effectively social - and it’s through that social aspect that “word-of-mouth” is empowered.

The Frontline
So You Want to Grow?
 

by Tom Callinan, Strategy Development
In the past few months, you probably made some type of resolution to “grow your business in 2012.” You may have decided to add some sales professionals, change your sales manager, make an acquisition, or open a branch in a new territory. For some, you’ve decided to expand your product and or service portfolio. Each of these could be a sound approach to growth; each of these initiatives could also cost you a lot of money, where by the end of the year you could end up at the same revenue or lower than 2011, with lower operating income. Let me start by stating the obvious: growth is hard work!
