Mike recently called from West Texas. He’d ordered two of my manuals and only had them for a few days, so I was surprised to hear from him so soon. Mike is a no-nonsense salesman with over 40 years experience under his belt. He told me that he’d recently signed on with a 56 year old company to help them ramp up their sales.
Mike sees a company with a great range of products that has barely scratched the surface of their profit potential. They’d made a couple of million in 2004 but hardly tapped into the market they could be selling to. What has been holding this company back? No marketing plan or sales strategy.
Mike bought the 15 Second Marketing guide and The Insider Secrets to Attracting More & Better Customers manual and less than a week later called to order Creating Web Sites that Sell. He’d quickly seen the benefits of the small business marketing strategy detailed in the first two manuals and realized that he’d need to learn how to use the company’s web site as part of his marketing efforts to achieve his revenue goals.
And he has set some audacious goals. Based on his analysis, Mike identified a potential for growing the business by a factor of ten.
