Don’t Complain About The RV Dealerships Leads & Get Your Own

Share The Knowledge

Beggars Can’t Be Choosers

If you’re one of those sales people who tell your co-workers that the “leads are bad” and this is why you can’t close a deal then read this post 100 times. Too many sales associates complain about the RV dealership leads they’re provided yet they never do anything to bring their own leads, and it’s silly to even think about.

Now, I will agree that it is a dealerships job to give their sales associates plenty of leads so they can fill their pipeline and close more deals.

However, I do not think it is fair for sales associates to take the leads a dealership is creating for them and not follow up with them properly or write them off as a non buyer before they’ve even qualified them. Sales associates have to do a better job of implementing at least an 18 month follow up process with their customers to ensure they don’t leave any money on the table; and realistically the longer the follow up process the better.

Side Note: It is a good practice to still follow up with your customers even after you’ve made the sale.

Now, Instead of looking at dealer supplied leads as wasted time and non buyers, start to implement your sales and follow up process with them for days, weeks, months, and years on end.

Start Generating Your Own RV Dealership Leads

On top of implementing a solid follow up and sales process with your dealerships leads, you should also start to do your own lead generation.

With a cell phone and the free tools that you have at your finger tips, it is easier than ever to generate leads for yourself.

As a sales associate you can take the already existing pictures of your RVs (Hopefully they are HD) and you can add your own RV postings on sites like Craigslist.org. You can also have your most recent customers tag you on Facebook and have them give you a review so their friends and family can see who they bought their RV from. There are a lot of powerful tools out there… use them!

One thing a lot of dealerships are missing out on is Facebook Live. Sales associates should start using their dealerships Facebook pages to go “Live” as a way to generate more leads and trust with your customers.

This is also good because it gives your sales team a great platform to demo your RV’s on and its live directly to your customers.

Here Is An Example Of A Facebook Live We Shot For A Dealership

In the digital age there is no excuse for sales associates to not be generating at least some of their own leads, and as technology grows, the need for these types of sales professionals is going to rise. With cell phones, websites, and digital marketing growing quicker then ever; it is a sales persons job to stay up-to-date on the newest and best lead generation and digital sales strategies so they can help their dealerships and companies grow instead of holding them back.

Stop complaining about the leads and start creating them!

5 Things Your RV Dealership Is Probably Getting Wrong (Heres How To Fix Them)

Share The Knowledge

In the digital age, your dealership should only care about one thing. Creating a digital sales strategy by optimizing your online brand, social media, and digital marketing.

A Digital Sales Strategy is the strategy your company uses to create more relevant leads for your dealership using your website, digital marketing, and social media.

In the digital age, your customers are becoming online shoppers, and because of this many dealerships are leaving money on the table. For the last 20 years RV dealers have been marketing to their customers using traditional marketing and has worked wonders

But…

Not anymore. If you want to run a successful RV Dealership you have to focus on digital. Today you can’t just have newspaper ads, billboards, and TV commercials if you want to sell RVs. Your dealership needs to get serious about your digital sales strategy.

If not, you’re making a huge mistake.

RV dealers across the nation are selling more RV’s than ever because of their online brand and digital marketing. If this is not your RV dealership than use these tips to better your digital sales strategy and start selling more RVs.

Here are 5 tips any RV dealership can use to better your Digital Sales Strategy

1) Stop Giving Away Your Price For Nothing

One of the biggest mistakes a dealership can make is giving away your price for nothing in return.

Now, think of this…

If 1 Million people come to your website today, and none of them give you their contact information or come to your dealership, can you start the buying process with any of them?

Can a sale happen before a sales associates takes a lead through your buying process?

No… Every Sale Must Go Through The Buying Process

Therefore, it’s a huge mistake to give your customer the price without taking their information (Name, Email, & Phone). Remember those 1 Million viewers you just had on your website? What if just 1% of them gave you their contact information?

Your RV Dealership would have 10,000 warm leads for your sales team. If you close 8% of those warm leads you would have sold 800 RVs! Not to shabby huh?

But, How Do You Get Customer’s To Give You Their Information Without Giving Them Your Price?

In the RV industry people are shopping nationwide for the best value and for the right floor plans. Once a customer finds the RV and floor plan that will provide them with the most value, they next go online and search for the dealer with the best price.

You might be thinking, “This is exactly why I am showing my price, why are you saying it’s wrong?”

This is wrong because customers will use your price as a negotiating tool to beat down closer dealers who have the same products as you without ever giving you an opportunity to earn their business -AND- prospects aren’t curious about your price so they have no reason to inquire or give you their information.

For example, if your selling price is $25,000, you can cross out $25,500 as a sale price with a call to action button making them give you their information for the lowest price.

As you see in the example below one of our clients uses “Rock Bottom Pricing” as the call to action to get their customers information, because remember, if we never get their information we can’t take them through the buying process.

rock bottom pricing, lead generation

Now, if a buyer is serious about a RV and they see that your price is competitive but they don’t know the exact price, curiosity will take over and a call to action button will entice them to give you their info in exchange for your lowest price.

Once you get their info, your sales team now has a warm lead they can follow up with and hopefully they’re good enough to convert the lead into a sale.

On top of creating more leads, and sales for your dealership this will also help because…

  • Your competition will not know your exact pricing just by going to your website.
  • Your prospects can’t use your price as a negotiating chip at other RV dealerships that carry the same product but are closer.
  • More of your traffic will convert into warm leads instead of wasted traffic.

If you are giving away your pricing for nothing here are a few things that are happening to your dealership that you might not be able to see.

  • You lose potential sales because you’re not efficiently turning your traffic into leads and a lot of buyers never make it into your sales process
  • Customers are using your price to get better deals at closer dealerships who have the same products so they don’t have to talk to you or travel to your location
  • Your competition has a pricing advantage over you because they know your numbers and can adjust their approach because of it

Stop giving away your price for nothing and start converting more of your traffic into leads and sales!

2) No Active Social Media or Facebook Ad Campaigns

One of the next HUGE mistakes a lot of RV dealers are making right now is they have no active Social Media presence and they’re not using Facebook ads. If you ask a business owner why they invest in TV commercials, ads, billboards and everything else, they will usually tell you something like, “It’s where my customers are.”

content users want to see

Your customers are on social media and as you can tell by this infographic, your customers want you to be on social media too! People spend around 5 hours a day on their cell phone which is the same amount of time people spend watching television. 1.28 Billion people will log into Facebook daily and the user rate is growing at an alarming rate. Out of the 5 hours your customers are spending on their phone daily, 2 of those hours are spent just on social media. Beside the fact that your customers are on social media; your advertising dollar can go a lot further on a digital platform than any other, which will help lower your customer acquisition cost if done properly.

Why aren’t you marketing on Facebook again?

With more and more consumers moving in the way of an “internet shopper” the way people are buying has changed. Consumers are looking for companies online who are active and who have good reviews. They’re messaging companies on Facebook to ask questions before they will give you their business and some of them won’t even think about coming to your dealership if you’re not on social media (its a trust thing).

By implementing a daily social media marketing campaign for your dealership you will start to build online authority and trust. Your customers will have another channel for them to talk to you on and you will have another channel that will help your dealership capture a warm lead.

Some buyers prefer to walk into your dealership, some prefer to call your dealership, and others prefer to shop the internet before they will buy. If you’re not allowing your customers to buy from all of these different platforms then you’re leaving money on the table! If you start using social media the right way and start running Facebook ads for your dealership, you will be surprised at the results… and that surprise will probably be a good one.

3) Not Enough Videos

YouTube 2nd largest search engine

People are getting spoiled with the amount of video they have access too and they are looking up videos on everything. YouTube is the 2nd largest search engine and you can go “live” directly from your dealership using just a cell phone but most dealerships aren’t using video to their advantage. These tools are FREE and will create new business for your dealership, yet a lot of dealers are ignoring video completely and it is costing them cashflow.

As a dealership, your goal should be to put a video up for every single RV that ever hits your lot. By adding videos of all your products you will start to get traffic from places you haven’t got it before. Customers who are searching the internet for good videos on the products they’re looking for might land on your dealerships videos and before you know it you have a warm internet lead all because you have high quality video of your products.

Not only is video strong for Facebook and YouTube but it is also really strong in your personal follow up as a sales associate. One of the strongest things you can do as a sales associate is texting your clients personalized video messages of the RV’s they’re looking at.

For example: If I was a RV sales associate and I just received an internet lead from a customer who is looking at the XYZ. I would go out to that RV, shoot a personalized video of RV XYZ and I would text it right over to them. I would also address them personally in the beginning and put my face in there so they can put a face to my name. As you start using this you will find it to be a strong follow up tool and it’ll help you sell more RVs.

Mediocre sales associates always want to send email after email but let me ask you this, how many emails are unread in your inbox right now? How many emails get sent directly into your spam that you never see? How many of your emails are skipped over because we get hundreds of emails a day and its impossible to keep up with? A lot of them I am sure because I personally have 5,000+ unread emails on just my phone and I would guess your inbox is very similar.

Now ask yourself this question, how many unread text messages are sitting in your phone? The answer is probably zero because people always read their text messages and it will bug them if they don’t. Use this to your advantage and stop sending emails your customers aren’t going to read and start sending them text messages (Or preferably, send them an email and a text). Send them text videos of units they’re looking at or text them asking for an appointment. The more you start using videos and text to communicate with your customers the more RV’s you will sell!

One of our clients didn’t have a YouTube channel before they started to use us for their marketing and it was costing them a lot sales. By creating a video for every RV that hits their lot and some informational videos, we have been able to upload close to 1,000 videos and they’re approaching 1,000 subscribers, and these numbers are growing every day. With all of the videos we have created, this dealership has approximately 2 million minutes watched on their YouTube channel all from videos that you can create and upload for FREE.

These videos build a lot of trust with their customers because they get to see the exact RV they’re looking at before they come to the dealership and these videos have been the difference in a lot of their sales. Videos have also been a big part of the reason why people come from all over the nation to purchase from this dealership and if you’re not using video then you’re wrong!

What are your videos and YouTube channel doing for your dealership?

4) No Engaging or Valuable Content Creation

In todays digital age it is important to create ENGAGING and VALUABLE content.

priorities for b2c content creators

Think about the websites that you come to and use everyday. To name a few, Google, Facebook and YouTube. The reason you use these websites daily is because they provide you with a ton of value and new things are added daily that we’re interested in and want to engage with. There are a couple key take aways from this. They provide you with value, they’re doing it daily, and you want to engage with them.

You have to turn your RV dealerships website into a resources that your customers can use on a daily basis. What does that mean? You can’t always advertise sales, products, and services to your customers!!! Dealerships have to provide their customers with valuable and engaging content that will make them WANT to interact with your dealership. You can do this by building an awesome blog and by adding new articles weekly or by running social media campaigns that are designed to add value to your customers while engaging them. There are a lot of ways to do it but the main thing you need to understand is you have to provide value and engage.

We all see 90% of dealerships Facebook pages that are all about showing you the sales they have going on, the new products that hit the lot, and the “just purchased” picture with their customers, but they never seem to provide you with any engaging or quality content. This is a huge mistake!

Most of the dealerships Facebooks pages out there are boring and people unfollow them quick. Nobody comes to Facebook to be advertised to 24/7. Think about it, we use TIVO now because we want to fast forward the commercials. We use apps like Netflix and Hulu because we want to watch our shows with no ads. The same thing is true about your dealerships Facebook business page. If all you’re doing is advertising without providing your customers with valuable and engaging content then you’re wasting your time and energy.

At IMR we use a rule of 80% social and 20% advertising. This means that for every 10 pieces of content we share, 8 of them will be geared towards our ideal customer simply for fun and engagement while 2 pieces of content will be promoting sales or products. When you start to build a Facebook business page or marketing campaign this way you will start to see more interaction from your followers, you will see more new likes on a daily basis and you will see more leads coming from your social media and digital marketing.

5) Your Sales Team Is Not Using Live Video

There are very few dealerships out there who are using live video to promote their products and I don’t understand why. By adding your sales team to your Facebook Business Page they can go live at your dealership directly from their cell phone at any given minute.

This is HUGE because consumers want to see more social media posts and videos and Facebook Live checks both of these boxes.

content users want to see

Instead of letting your sales members sit at their desk and scroll Facebook (like a lot of them are guilty of) make them go out on the lot and start shooting live video. Have them go live from your dealerships page and ask customers which RV’s they want to see and use live video to bring in qualified leads. Your sales team can use live video to get their face out there as a sales associate so people know who to ask for when they come to the lot and it will bring you leads you’ve never had before.

By simply going live for an hour and asking your Facebook fans what RV’s they want to see you will start to build trust with your customers. They will see you’re willing to provide them value and show them RV’s they’re interested in before they come to your dealership and it’s a good way to get leads. A lot of the people watching your live stream will even start to ask you buying questions like

  • Do you guys take trade ins?
  • Do you guys finance?
  • What is a monthly payment on an RV like that?
  • Where are you located?

As you start getting buying questions and qualified leads directly through Facebook Live you can then DM them to get their cell phone and email for proper follow up and boom you have a warm lead.

The other benefit of this is, IT’S FREE FOR YOUR DEALERSHIP!!!

It has never been easier to make your marketing dollars stretch in business. By using social media and all of the free tools we have at our exposure, dealerships can really ramp up their marketing and save money at the same time. One of our clients we implemented a digital marketing campaign for spent 80k less on their marketing than the previous year while selling more RV’s then they have in the 45+ years they’ve been in business.

By simply switching your marketing budget from old techniques and traditional marketing into a digital marketing and social media campaign you will see double the results for typically less money than you’re used to spending.

Start taking advantage of live video and see how it helps your dealership and sales team sell more RVs. You will thank me for it later.

1. Going Viral Takes Great Content, & Better Planning. Tip By John Rampton

Click click click (keyboard typing) you start writing attentively…

You pick a great topic (so you think), have amazing information to share, and write a perfect article. As you proof read the final copy you begin to experience chills, seems like this is the one! This blog is so good, therefore it should go viral… Right?

Not usually, and in fact most viral content is very well planned. John Rampton, Owner of DUE.com describes the process of making content by saying

“It starts with the idea for the post and it doesn’t even end once the post is out and winning shares. That’s just where the next process begins. –John Rampton

According to John Rampton there are several steps that you should take when writing viral content (Click Here To Read John’s Blog About Writing Viral Content). Here is a quick run down of the steps you should be taking when writing viral content.

Select The Proper Content Idea

  • Selecting the proper idea for your content to go viral is very important. Make sure you do research on the trending topics, news, and audience moods in your space. Write content based on current events that effect your customers.
  • Use Google Trends to look at trending stories in your niche, after you find the trending articles take a look at the headlines that are trending. Study the headlines of trending articles and before you write your content this will give you an idea of what people are interested in. (Don’t steal headlines, but use them as a brainstorming tool for great content)
  • For example, if you sell dog food, and there was a huge Law that just passed increasing dog food prices by 10%, write a blog about it! Keeping your customer’s informed is a great way to ride the news headline waves, while providing great information to your readers.

Determine Your Promotion Strategy

  • Social Media – Ensure that after posting your blog that you’re sharing it with your friends. Post it on your Facebook Page, Blast it out on Twitter, and Share it on Linked IN. These avenues will allow others to share your post, and may start the viral spark.
  • Use Paid Ads – Organic reach is limited by many things, so many viral campaigns use paid advertising along with their organic reach. Boosting your blog on Facebook, promoting your tweet, or having a sponsored post on LinkedIn all have their advantages to drive your content further.
  • Email Your List – If you’ve been building your Email list than you want to send them an email telling them about your new content, also it’s a great idea if you ask them to share your content if they enjoy it! Don’t worry if you don’t have a huge email list yet, every list starts at 0 recipients.

Picking The Right Time

  • Post your content at a time when you know people will see it. What good is awesome content if you post it when everyone is offline?
  • Ensure to use your social media insights, and Google analytics in order to see when your content is most popular. Post your content around these times to get the best results.

2. Focus On Your Organic Social Media Reach. Tip By Gary Vaynerchuk

It’s a new age of business, and pioneering this change is Social Media. Social Media is one of the greatest tools that any business can take advantage of, and the best part is that you can have huge results with very little money.

Posting daily on your Facebook pages, going live on Youtube/Facebook for daily webisodes, and even making your own short film can now be accomplished straight from your cell phone! No more excuses that you can’t start a business due to capital, it now has to do with your drive.

“It excites me to no end to think about the fact that most small business (and even A-list personalities) waste $250,000-500,000 a year on tactics like websites, PR, direct mail, or paid media when they could have just gone all in on organic social content and a small amplification budget to achieve more valuable results. – Gary Vaynerchuk

In Gary Vaynerchuck’s article he also refers to social media as “the current state of the internet”, and you have to agree with him. Think about how many hours people scour Facebook feeds, Instagram photo’s, and Snapchat stories…

What number of hours do you think people are using Social Media daily?

According to this info-graphic provided by Social Media Today, people will spend more time on Social Media than they will eating and drinking combined… That’s Insane, but what does that mean for you?

This crazy, but true stat means that people are eating, and breathing Social Media.

Therefore, if you’re really looking to grow your business in the new age start getting active on Social Media, and your internet marketing will see results. (Patience Is A Virtue)

Here Are Some Way’s To Get Active On Social Media

  • Post Daily – Ensure that you are not just posting your buy links, or marketing information because people will unfollow you. Instead share great content that adds value for your customer. Give them coupons, funny videos, awesome quotes and even how to videos your customer would enjoy. When you’re thinking of what content to post it’s good to follow the 80% Social 20% Marketing Rule. This means for every 10 post you do each day, only 2 of them should be direct marketing post. If you follow this principal your social media accounts will grow.
  • Engage With Everyone – Reply to any comment on your post. Even if you just say thank you for commenting, or actually start a conversation, your constant engagement will bring great results.(This Is HUGE For Growth)
  • Stay Constant – Everything takes time, if you stop posting on Social Media you will not get results. Notice how Gary Vaynerchuk suggest for you to focus on your organic reach for an entire year… He doesn’t suggest 2 months, or a week, but a year. It’s very important to stick with social media because when you do your results will reflect your efforts.

3. Never Assume Your Internet Lead Hasn’t Done Research. (Always Give Your Customer The Info They Ask For.) Tip By Grant Cardone

“Companies that make themselves rely on internet leads are 100% more profitable than those that don’t. – Grant Cardone

Internet leads.

When you hear that, do you cringe, or get excited?

Truth is that good internet leads are a game changer if your business handles them properly. Think about it this way… How many “Walk In Leads” would buy from your store if they get punched upon entering?(I’ll Bet Not Many.)

The same should be applied to your internet leads. Never punch them in the face, but help them like you would want to be helped, and you will close more deals.

Here are 3 Ways Grant Cardone Suggest Handling Internet Leads. (GC Is A Sales Genius, You’d Be Crazy Not To Listen.)

  • Never Assume – One huge mistake that your sales team could be making is assuming an ignorant buyer. Internet leads tend to be VERY educated customers, and they will know if you are blowing smoke. Assuming that your customer is uneducated is a huge mistake for any sales person. A good way to not fall into this trap is by asking your customer the research they have already done. Simply saying “What research have you already done on (The Product), because I would hate to waste your time by telling you things you already know” can save you time, and help you close the sale more.
  • Speed Matters – Don’t treat your internet leads like a cold call. People that inquire about your product from your website are looking to buy, and this makes them a great customer prospect. Respond promptly to your internet leads, and you will see better results.
  • Give The Info – As we have stated above, most internet leads are very educated on your product, and competitor products. This means that you should always give them the information they ask for. Don’t give internet leads the run around, provide the information your online customer ask for, and your internet closing rate will increase.

4. Integrate Social Media Across Your Organization. (Not Just Your Marketing Department) Tip By Heidi Cohen

“If you still think marketing when someone says social media, you’re behind the curve. – Heidi Cohen

Social Media is no longer just an internet marketing platform, but it is a way for everyone to connect in seconds. Your best friends, family, and even your arch enemy are just a URL link away.

You can connect, chat, and even stream your daily activities straight from your cell phone! The power of this connectivity is endless for your business potential.

But… How can connecting your digital strategy with your daily practices benefit your business?

  • Use Private Groups For Employees – It’s a great idea for your company to integrate your employees into your Social Media strategy. Start a closed group and make it mandatory for all employees to join the group. Encourage your employees to use the group to discuss work events, schedule changes, and anything else going on in your business. This open line of communication builds strong work relationships, and will help you in more ways then you think.
  • Encourage Your Company To Respond On Your Page – Post social content onto your Social Media platforms and encourage your company to engage with the content. Comments, Likes, and Even Sharing your pages content will increase the brand of your business. If your Facebook Page post something about your product, and a customer asks a question on the Facebook page reward your employees for answering them correctly. Having your customers, and employees engage on your Social Media has huge upside.
  • Open A Facebook Group For Customer Questions – Create a group that your product specialist, and your customers join. Have you customers post questions they may have about your product and have your experts answer. Give your customers great videos showing them how to use, maintain, and other great information about your product and you will start building a lasting relationship with your customers.

Why You Need A Sales Funnel

Share The Knowledge

A lot of companies take the approach that if they build it customers will come, and this is not the case. From brick and mortar locations to business websites; you can tell a lot of them lack a good sales funnel and direction. If you just build your website or business with no direction and no way to convert your traffic to customers then you’re going about business the wrong way. The truth is you need a sales funnel.

Sales Funnel (also known as a revenue funnel or sales process) – refers to the buying process that companies lead customers through when purchasing products. A sales funnel is divided into several steps, which differ depending on the particular sales model.

In basic terms, a sales funnel is the process that your company follows to take potential customers to buying customers.

Most businesses go out of business because of 2 things, they do not have enough attention and they do not have enough cash flow. As I am sure you have heard before, “You may have the best product or service on the planet but if nobody knows about you then who cares?”

I am going to add something to this old saying because I think it is a little off. I believe the saying should go, “You can have the best product/service in the world but if nobody has heard of you or you can’t close the deal then who cares?”

I think this is more fitting because a lot of people believe that by simply having the best product/service or the cheapest price that it will sell itself, and this is not true. To be a successful company you have to have the best product along with a great sales funnel. By implementing a solid sales funnel into your customer acquisition process you will start to close more deals which will increase your cashflow and attention.

Now, you might be curious how a sales funnel is going to increase your attention but the truth is it does. By taking your customers through a dialed in process that is designed around getting your customer what they want, it will make for a good experience and a new customer. As your company gains more happy customers they will spread the word about your product/service and you will have the sales process to turn new traffic into buying customers as the cycle continues.

That leads into the fact that most companies on the market are not taking advantage of the current traffic and attention their product/services are getting because they are not optimized to convert this traffic from a viewer to a buyer.

Think about it.

You go into a retail store and the “sales associate” will ask you questions like, “Can I help you find something?”

As we mostly reply, “No thanks, I am just looking.”

they will then say, “Ok, let me know if you need anything.”

We say, “Ok. I will.”

then we leave the store empty handed while they keep folding clothes on the racks. This is an example of a missed opportunity and a terrible sales funnel.

Side Note: This isn’t just happening at retail stores…

What makes this even worse is companies will spend a lot of money on their marketing to get a customer into the door or onto the website and then the website or store will not be optimized to turn these viewers into buyers. To me this is putting the cart before the horse and a waste of precious marketing dollars that will inadvertently increase your customer acquisition cost simply because you lack a sales funnel.

The truth is that if companies would pay more attention to optimizing their sales funnel, they would close more deals and have happier customers. 

By closing more deals and turning your customers into brand advocates you will be bringing more attention to your company by having more people talk about you. You’re showing your customers that your product is awesome and that it is easy to do business with your company and your brand advocates will start to refer your comapny more and more. They will start to tell people where they bought their products from and what salesmen helped them find it, instead of sending customers away.

You’re only as strong as your weakest link so make sure your weakest link isn’t your sales funnel! 

The scary thing is, a lot of companies I analyze have a terrible sales funnel with an awesome product and it is holding back their business.

On the flip side, what this means for companies who have a strong sales funnel and a great product is that you’re ahead of the curve. While most businesses are trying to figure out how to bring in more customers and increase their cash flow, you will be closing a higher percentage of your current traffic which will increase your attention and sales.

Every company should focus on taking every single viewer/prospect through a sales funnel and follow up process till they turn into a customer. The way you do this is with a solid sales funnel and an optimized company.

Stop wasting your traffic and turn it into cash flow! 

One of the first things you should look at when you’re analyzing your sales funnel for a website is if your site is designed to capture your viewers information. A lot of websites I come to do not have enough call to actions. Call to actions are designed around getting your customer to give you their name, email, and phone number which is all information you need before you can make a sale.

The fact is, you will never gain a customer without gaining their information. Your website needs to be designed to create internet leads by gathering your viewers name, email and phone number so your sales team will be able to follow up with them. Once the internet lead hits the salesmen, the salesmen needs to have a sales funnel and follow up process that they can take the internet lead down till they become a customer.

Side Note: Having an optimized website will also increase the number of buyers who will simply buy because of the information your website provides.

As more and more leads come in to your salesmen and as they get better at the process, they will start to close more deals and you will start to see exponential growth instead of wasted traffic.

When it comes to a brick and mortar location, you should focus on training your current salesmen how to take your customers through a sales funnel instead of just asking if they need help. Your salesmen should be engaging with your customers and asking questions to figure out what brings them in to the store today. Once your salesmen finds out what the customers needs are, they should then take them to the products and make sure the customer has everything they need before they leave.

These simple tweaks to your sales funnel will make a huge difference to your cash flow and customer acquisition. 

Now, these are just 2 minor examples of how to adjust your sales funnel but I hope this will help you understand the importance of optimizing your sales funnel because if you get more attention but have a terrible sales process then you’re just wasting time and money.

Market To The Right Customers and Not Waste Your Money with Targeted Marketing

Share The Knowledge

A lot of companies want an ad in the program for their local football team, post their picture on the billboard downtown, or take out an ad in the Sunday clipper but they never take the time to think about who they’re really marketing to.

In the world of business you want to market and appeal to your TARGET audience (targeted marketing) and not to just anyone who will listen. When you are marketing to an audience who have no use for your product/service all you are truly doing is wasting precious time and money. In the digital age we live in today, it is silly to waste your time and money on customers who don’t need your product/service because it is so easy to target your customers online.

The internet is where people go to solve specific problems they’re having.

The secret to sales is to provide your customers with a solution to a problem that they’re having.

I have never purchased a product or from a business because of a billboard I seen while driving on the expressway or from the ad in the high school sports program. I don’t find my plumber from the mailer your company sent me and I definitely don’t look in the Sunday clipper for the business I want to give my money to.

It’s the digital age people, haven’t you ever heard of the internet?

I find businesses that I want to work with by “Googling” the product or service I am looking for and finding the best fit. After I research a couple of the top businesses and products that will solve my problems, I will choose the one I want to go with and then reach out for their product of service.

Think about it like this:

You’re a heating and cooling company and you put a $5,000 ad in the program at the high school football game. You’re all excited because the games are packed every Friday and you think, “there is no way I won’t get customers from this.”

However, nobody at the game has a heating and cooling problem and your ad is irrelevant to everyone at the game. You wait weeks for a single customer to call about your services but the phones stay silent and you’ve wasted your $5,000 with no customers to show for it and a bunch of wasted time.

Instead, you should’ve put that same $5,000 into an internet targeted marketing campaign towards customers in your area with heating and cooling issues. With these targeted customers landing on your website, and having a site that is designed to capture their information and make them want to call in, you will start to get customer call ins and relevant leads on a daily basis.

Instead of marketing to a bunch of customers who don’t need your product/service, you will get calls and leads from real customers who actually need you. Now that $5,000 loss you had before will turn in to profit and you will make a return on your investment (ROI), as opposed to losing money while you’re marketing.

Work smarter, not harder!

You would think this concept is an easy one to understand, but a lot of business owners are still making this fatal mistake. Small business owners are wasting thousands of dollars for paper mailers, billboards, TV commercials, t-shirts, etc but are unwilling to put money into internet targeted marketing campaigns. This blows my mind and all I can say is, DON’T be that business! 

Do yourself a favor and take the budget from all of the old marketing techniques and put it towards an internet targeted marketing strategy. 

If you do this, you will start to get more relevant customers who are actually looking for your services. These targeted marketing leads will turn into more sales and happier customers who will refer your business to more customers and you will make a lot more money and waste less time.

On the flip side, if you continue with traditional marketing methods and don’t evolve your business into the digital age. You will see your numbers consistently decline till you eventually go out of business, and you will be left wondering where you went wrong. Be a smart business owner and bring your company into the digital age before you get left behind!

How To Not Fail In The Internet Age – Because 80% of Small Businesses Don’t Get The Memo

Share The Knowledge

We are now living in the internet age and the customer has power!

As we continue living in the internet age and technology is growing faster then ever, companies have to be focused on taking care of their customers. If you are not, then you will be joining the 80% of small businesses who fail.

Your customers now have information and reviews on every competitor in your space by searching the internet. Lets just assume your competitors aren’t better then you, because if they are, you will be missing out on a lot of money!

Consumers are now picking the companies they want to give their business to from behind their computers. Your success will depend on high quality services/products and in your visibility to your market place.

With the internet giving people access to reviews and information from Google, Facebook, Yelp, etc; customers are now seeing who the good and bad companies are before they choose who they will spend their money with. Consumers trust these reviews and online information just as much as they do their best friend.

The internet has made it so that crap and invisible companies in the market place will never get that “I wanna give you my business” phone call, while the credible and visible businesses will be taking all of the cash flow.

Now if the above sentence is hard to understand, then just know this: if your online reputation is bad or your product/service is not good, then you will soon join the 80% of small businesses who rightfully go out of business!

So, if you’re one of the small businesses who provide a great product/service and don’t want to go out of business, ask yourself one question. What should I do?

The first thing you need to do is get your potential customer’s attention!

I always tell business owners, “You can have the best product/service in the world, but if nobody knows you exist, then who cares?”

This statement continues to be true, so make sure you are getting attention in your market place!

To get your customers attention in the internet age, you continuously have to be marketing and you need to have an up-to-date website. Your website needs to provide enough information to where a customer will feel safe buying from you.

One of the biggest mistakes small businesses make is that they make it too hard for their customers to contact them. You want to make sure that when your customer is ready to buy, it is easy for them to contact you, or for them to leave you their contact information. You can accomplish this by having a lot of call-to-actions on your website while having many ways your customers can contact you.

On top of having an optimized website you will also need to be all over the internet!

What I mean by this is, you need to be posting on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, and every other channel that your customer is on. Honestly, if you’re not using these FREE marketing tools then you’re more then wrong!

By providing excellent content to your customers on every channel possible they will start to see you as the expert in your field. Once your customers see you as the expert in your field they will start to contact you when they’re in need of your product/service. They may even refer you to their friends when they’re in need of your product/service.

With good content across the internet and your website to capture your customers information, you will be getting a lot of FREE attention to your business and more potential customers to follow up with.

Once you’ve used your website to gain your customers trust and contact information, the next step is to have your sales team reach out and close the deal.

Assuming your sales team knows what to do and has closed the deal with your new customers, you now have to provide them with such an incredible product/service that it will MAKE THEM want to write an online review about their experience with your product/service.

This review is the most important thing because consumers will trust an online review just as much as they will their best friend, and these reviews will get your business a boat load of ATTENTION!

Side note: If you get any bad reviews you should publicly address the issue and make sure that your customers are seeing how you have improved from your mistakes. Customers will be more scared of a company that has bad reviews and ignores them then they will be of a company who addresses their mistakes and fixes them!

If you want to stay in business in the internet era, follow this simple formula for success and make sure to repeat it with every customer!

5 Reasons Your Bad Website Should Be Your Main Small Business Concern.

Share The Knowledge

What is the first thing that comes to your mind when a customer asks for your website?

Are you immediately excited to say

“My website is yourURL.com”

or are you filled with thoughts like

  • My website is pretty ugly, should I just give them my Facebook page?
  • Well I have a website but it’s kind of under construction, here’s my business card.
  • My website? Um just shoot me an email.

If the latter option sounds more familiar, it’s a big mistake to your business because today customer research starts on the internet. It’s kind of like having a building that is falling apart to run business out of… Not very practical, Right?

Now for the good news…

  • You’re not the only business with a bad website.
  • You can still get ahead of your competition.
  • A stunning, yet simple website will improve your brand & business .

Here are 5 reasons your bad website is a huge mistake.

Did You Know?

“57% of customers say they won’t recommend a business with a poorly designed mobile site and 40 percent have turned to a competitor’s site after a bad experience.” – Google

bad website, 5 reasons why your bad website is a major business concern, picture of brittney spears dressed up on the left and her wearing sweatpants on the right

1. First Impressions Matter

Do you remember your first job interview? Of course you do, how could you forget the feeling of being interrogated by your potential future boss. Now I want you to think of what you wore.

Did you wear the sweat pants and hoody with your favorite sports team on it?

or

Did you grab the business attire & look sharp as a tack?

Chances are that if you got the job you probably wore the business attire, and this probably comes as no surprise. It’s human nature to be attracted to things that look good. I mean think about it, when was the last time you purchased something you thought was ugly?

Now think of your under dressed business website. Each person that goes to your website is meeting you, standing there with sweat pants and a hoody on.

Is that the impression you want to leave your customers with?

The fact of today is that first impression matters both in real life, and on the internet. Which is why it’s very important for your business website to look good, while being easy to use.

One of the best ways your business can stand out is by having an awesome looking website. Having a good looking business website will ensure

  • Visitors don’t bounce off of your website after seeing it.
  • Customers look at your business as legit, instead of thinking your business is a scam.
  • Everyone can easily understand your website because it’s neat and makes sense.

All of that being said, I know that looks are not the only thing that is going to keep customers on your website, but it is a great place to start.

2. You’re Missing Free Customers

The internet is such a great thing because it’s one of the best ways for your business to take advantage of free customers. Think about it, what other medium allows you to reach millions of people with just the click of a button?

Imagine taking your gourmet restaurant and opening up in the middle of Times Square. So many customers walk by you everyday that you are automatically going to get customers from the street, correct?

Now think of your website as the restaurant, Times Square as the internet, and the customers walking by as everyone connected to the internet. 324+ Million people are walking by your website each and every day…

Are you going to turn on the Open Sign yet?

nad websites, open for business sign flickering, open sign flickering

Turning on your online business is a little bit harder then flipping on a “Open For Business” sign, but it’s definitely not impossible. The truth is that getting your website ranked organically on search engines does take some time and effort, but the reward is well worth it.

For Example

Think of that same restaurant that you opened up in Times Square. When people search Google for your business by name, or even restaurants in the area you show up! Great, that is a lot of customers that can already see your business. But what if your business also came up when a customer searched Google for phrases like

  • Swedish Meatballs Recipes
  • Italian Recipes From Home
  • Delicious Lasagna Recipes

The benefit your business has when you actually start showing up for different key phrases in your niche is incredible. Your traffic will start pouring in, and people will start finding your business out of thin air. All your work will pay off when you hear a customer say “I really love your blog, and I always use your website, keep up the good work!”

Did You Know?

“Judgments on website credibility are 75% based on a website’s overall aeshetics.” – Invision

3. Bad Website = Bad Business

Let’s make one thing clear before we continue with this section, I don’t think all businesses that have a bad website, are bad businesses.

But with that being said, many customers online DO think that a bad website directly reflects a bad business.

Think about it like this…

Do you recall the last time you were going thru the drive through window, and you saw “that guy” on the side of the road with his pants sagging farther than they should be? Were your first thoughts to trust that person? If not, don’t worry, you have the same trust issues many others do.

Now, I’m also not saying that everyone that sags their pants is a bad person because that is absolutely not true… But what I am saying is that people are more apt to not trust you if you portray a thug.

The truth of the matter is that people naturally prejudge everything. That gorgeous person that’s walking by you, the restaurant on the corner, and everything in between is being judged by your subconscious mind. This naturally occurring judgement happens automatically, so how can you make sure it effects you as little as possible?

Trust is Earned, Not Given

Well for starters it’s very important for businesses to present itself as a business you can trust from the start. As you know trust is a very hard thing to earn, and a very easy thing to lose therefore I wanted to give you some examples of things you can do to gain more trust online.

There are many things you can do to build trust online, below are some great ways to build trust on your website.
  • Add your contact phone number and email to the header of your website.
    • 44% of website visitors will leave a company’s website if there’s no contact information or phone number. – KOMarketing
  • Have current customers give you online reviews on Yelp, Google, and Facebook. After show these reviews on your homepage for social proof.
    • 72% of people entrusted online reviews just as much as personal recommendations. – IronPaper
  • Putting social media icons on your website will build trust and establish communication with your customers.
    • Adding various social media buttons equated to 400% increase in conversions for voice-over service Voices.com – BlueFountainMedia

In conclusion, don’t make your business website start off on the wrong foot by sagging your pants. Just wear a belt and make sure your website has the best chance to establish trust the first time someone sees it.

4. The Mobile Millennium

What time is it? Chance’s are you pulled out your cell phone to answer this very common question. Welcome to the digital age ladies and gentlemen. Where wrist watches have been converted to computers that fit into your pocket… or even on your wrist, Gotta love technology!

Advance With The Technology, Or Be Left In The Watch Age.

Do you remember the last time you forgot your cell phone somewhere? How helpless did you feel? Not being able to call anyone, Google anything, or even get directions to the closest pizza spot. Just an absolute fail, and huge inconvenience to say the least.

Now Back To Your Happy Place

A time and a place where you have your cell phone. It’s time to eat, and you’re craving a good steak. You pull the cell phone out of your pocket… “Hey Siri give me directions to the closest steak house”. As you scroll down the list of steak house’s to choose from you see one that sounds delicious, so you click on it and

Voila

You’re taken to a website that you have to zoom in on… What? No Responsive design? This menu is impossible to see, and forget about figuring out the prices… This website sucks! Back Button

Next Steak House

This time you’re greeted with a gorgeous mobile website, that has contact information on the top. As you scroll through the menu you see the word steak, and immediately click on it. Now what do you see? A sight so good, you almost eat your phone. Steak after steak, beautifully displayed next to mash potatoes and asparagus. YUM, and it was at that moment you were sold, the Steak house won your business, and you are probably still customers today.

Get All Device Friendly Before It’s To Late

With mobile internet traffic growing at an amazing rate, and the internet only getting bigger it’s is extremely important for your business website to display on all devices. When your business can be viewed on all devices your website will get less bounces, more interaction, and longer user sessions.

As you can see the impacts to having a mobile friendly website are great, and very important to your business. Not to mention with only 11.8% of websites on the internet being responsive, you still have time to get ahead of your competition. Don’t wait, get responsive!

5. A Bad Website Makes You Work Harder, Not Smarter

You’re in a room, it’s packed full of people and they want to buy your product. The only bad thing is that you have to personally talk to each person before they buy. So what do you do? You start talking, person after person you talk. At first it was awesome, but after talking to 1000 people you start getting frustrated. The stress starts building, and you begin to wonder if selling your product is even worth talking to all of these people!

Then It Dawns On You

All You have to do is get a megaphone, and a slideshow presentation so you can show everyone in the room your product at the same time. So you put up a “Will Return In 30 Minutes” sign, drive to the store to pick up the needed supplies, and head back your room full of buyers.

Setting up the screen is easy, and talking about your product is even easier. Finally you give the last presentation & are greeted with applause. Everyone is excited! They love the product so much that they all buy, what a success!

A Website Is Your Megaphone, Presentation & Store Front

Good thing today your presentation is possible thanks to the internet. This handy dandy tool allows business owners to talk directly to millions of people at the same time. It is the only medium that connects you to consumers from all over the world & gives you the chance to go viral. Today your website can show off your product/service all year round, get you noticed by Ellen Degeneras, and even take credit card. What A Superstar!

Keep Talking or Show The Presentation, It’s Up To You

Now the choice is yours, you can keep going door to door and talking to every home owner about your service. Continue going to craft shows, and marketing events in order to meet new people.

Or

  • You can present yourself to the world by turning your bad website into an awesome website

What Customers Really Want From A Salesmen

Share The Knowledge

Sometimes it is painful to go into a dealership or a business and hear the pitch some of their salesmen are throwing at me. A lot of them start talking about dogs, family, and life before closing the deal, and its one of my pet peeves. Please stop wasting your breath and learn what customers want from their salesmen!

Your customers are coming to you because you’re the EXPERT!

They do not care to talk about anything other then how you’re going to provide them with a turn-key solution to their problems. It’s as simple as that. Stop wasting your time on topics that have nothing to do with how you’re going to solve their problems because thats what customers want!

As the great Albert Einstein has said “Make things as simple as possible, but not simpler.”

What you have to figure out as the business owner is what issue(s) your product/services are fixing and sell to your customer based off of these rewards. Instead of pitching all of your services to your customer, sell them your turn key solution that is going to fix their biggest problems and you will close more deals.

Customers are coming to you because you’re the expert in your field and they trust you can solve their most frustrating issues.

So what can we do as salesmen and business owners?

Ask more questions! A lot of the time I talk to salesmen and business owners and they can not tell me about their actual customer. A lot of them talk more then they listen and they do not truly understand why their customer is even looking for their product/services.

What you should do as a salesmen is keep asking questions and really listen to what your customer wants.

Ask them how, what, when, where, and why they are looking for your services so that you can truly understand their needs. Get them talking for a good 10 minutes on why THEY are looking for your company and what problems they are looking to address.

Once you have a good understanding of your customers TRUE needs, you don’t have to just “pitch your services”. You can now show them how your product/services are going to fix their problems and they will give you their business.

Implement this simple technique into your sales process and you will be sure to close more deals!

4 Secrets On Building A Website That Gets Results

Share The Knowledge

In today’s day and age every company must have a website if they want to stay in business. 

With that being said, building a website is not an easy or common thing people know how to do. Because of this, a lot of business owners will skip building a website all together or they will pay/have someone make one for them, and frankly most of them look and perform like dog crap.

So, what are the secrets to building a website?

First, you will need a professional web designer/developer (unless you are one) who will be able to build you a professional, up-to-date, and responsive website.

Side Note: There are a lot of different content management systems (CMS) you can use to build your website, but I would recommend WordPress for most businesses.

The reason I recommend WordPress is because it is the easiest CMS to learn and use for people who have never run a website. If you decide to take over your website down the road, you will be happy it is on WordPress.

Side Note: Use a professional to build your website. Customers that see a poorly done website will view this as a reflection of your services and this will make customers NOT want to use you.

Second, your website needs to be focused on YOUR CUSTOMERS! A lot of websites that I come across talk all about themselves. They talk about how, what, and who started the company and have very little information on how their services will benefit their customer.

Do not make the mistake of being one of these websites, because NOBODY cares about your company. They care about how you’re going to help them fix their problems!

What your customer is looking to learn from your website is why you are the expert in your field and why they should go with your services over your competitors. This is truly the only thing they care about, so make sure you pay attention to how your website reads and the value your customers will get from it.

Third, you have to turn your website into one that will make your customer want to come back again and again. (Think of Google, Facebook, ESPN, Etc.)

The way to turn your website into a resource for your customers is to add quality content DAILY for them to read, watch, and learn from.

For example, lets say you are a plumber and you want to add content to your website. You can shoot videos using your cell phone on how to fix your sink when it leaks; or how to prevent water lines from bursting in the winter; or even how to install your toilet.

Next, you will write a summary blog about the video you recorded and then post the blog with the video onto your website.

Side Note: You will want to add new content to your website at least 3 times a week.

What this content will do is build trust with your customers and allow them to truly see you as an expert in your field.

Now, I know you’re thinking, “If I show people how to do my job, then why would they need me?”

The fact of the matter is that there are two types of people. There is the DIY type of person who will not call for help regardless of their situation, or the person who does not want to mess with it and will pay a professional to fix your problem and get the job done right.

By having these free videos/content on your website your customers can use and reference; it will position your website as the place to go for the services you provide. While the DIY person will be using your videos to do their own projects, the customers in your area that would rather pay someone will now trust you and want to use your services.

The Fourth and last step to building a website that will keep your customers coming back is to make your website easy to navigate and not confusing. I know that all of us have been on a website that is super confusing and hard to navigate, and if you’re like me, then you spend no longer then 10 seconds on those types of sites.

DON’T be that Website!

A very simple test for this is to have your Grandparents look through your website and ask for their feedback. If they tell you it was confusing and they didn’t know how to work it then you need to go back to the drawing board. If they were able to navigate it and learned something new from your information then you’re on the right track!

Use these 4 secrets when building and marketing your website and you will be sure to get more customers from your website.

Because Attitude Will Make Or Break You

Make or Break You, Which Will Your Attitude Do?

Attitude is something that will take you to the top, or drag you to the bottom. The main thing about attitude is it’s literally all up to you.

You can choose to be a positive, go getter; or you can choose to be negative and always act as a victim. Whichever you choose is the one that will determine the outcome or your everyday life.

I know you have heard the famous quote by Henry Ford saying, “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.” This is what I think about when I hear the word attitude and this is how I attack situations.

henry ford, make or break you attitude, picture of henry ford with a row of cars in the back ground

When going into your projects, business ventures, or even your daily life, make sure you are taking the positive, “I can” approach over the negative “I can’t” approach.

The fact is that if you think you can’t do something, it will subconsciously bring this into reality and make you under perform. However if you go into projects like “I can adapt and overcome any challenge that comes my way,” you will see such a huge difference.

Knowing this secret will make you never want to be negative again, because being negative will only bring negative results. So why not be positive?

The good news is, knowing this information means that we can use it to our advantage. We can use it to better ourselves and become the best person that we can be.

The longer we continue to have a negative attitude, the more time we are wasting to truly start living a good life, and everyone deserves a good life.

So lets keep a positive attitude and attack each day with an “adapt and overcome” mindset and witness how big of a difference it will make in your everyday life.

Keep your attitude positive my friends!
