TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 943 – Make an Old Sale

 

Tuesday Blog Topic: Content and Consistency –

Quote: “You don’t close a sale, you open a relationship”

 

Have you ever bought anything big?  I remember the last car I purchased… that’s a big purchase.

I bought it and from that moment I said “yes” it was like getting comforted from the sale to the close.

There was the lounge with free soda. The really cool finance room with the desktop that was actually a giant screen computer.  OK it was cool.

Walking out to see my car.  DANG I love new car smell… even in a pre owned car.

And the handshake, presentation of the keys, and wave good bye.

Then what?

What happens next?

HOW do you help your customers make the transition from the wave goodbye to the next thing?

Do you have a next thing?  Most people don’t… but imagine what would happen if you checked in with your customers just to see how they are doing… or every month you sent an email or postcard…

After all, these are people that are familiar with you and like you… so they will buy from you again. 

It’s never too late to rekindle that relationship… as you are trying to drum up business, start with the relationship.  Go through your old records, and talk with someone… offer a “come back” special… What will it cost?  The price of your time, the cost of the discount… but then again what will you gain… new business?

YEP!

Get out there and make an old sale!

As for my car… my sales person sends an email once a month…

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 942 – It’s All About You

Monday Topic: Credibility —

Quote: “Everyone has expertise, just find your thing and life will be awesome.”

 

What is your expertise?  Hopefully it has something to do with the business you run… but I’m guessing you also have an expertise totally unrelated to your business.

What do I mean?  That sounds like a strange statement.  This is a business blog and yet I’m curious what your expertise is that’s not related to your business, why.

Why am I curious what your expertise outside of your business is?

Because it’s very important!

People like to do business with people.  If you stick with the expertise of your business, people are possibly missing out on the YOU of the business.

Do you golf, boat, bake cookies… did you win a blue ribbon at the state fair for your ceramic sculpture?  What is it that makes YOU unique… tell your customers.

WHY???  Well, often people are comparing companies and they look to the About Us page.  This is when you tell your story. Your story is your expertise, not just professional, but personal. 

It’s hard to know exactly why people make a decision of who they will work with, but if you love chocolate chip cookies, and the person searching for someone to work with loves chocolate chip cookies… well, to me that’s a HUGE deal. 

You automatically have a connection.

It might seem strange to include your expertise from your personal life, but again, remember that people like to do business with people.

SO… today get out there and review your About Us section today and add a little of your expertiese that’s not related to your business… tell your story.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 941 – What You Can Learn From This Idea

Saturday Blog Topic – Try This!

There I was, watching TV and sure enough… a QR code on the screen.

This is one of those great ideas you can do too.  Creating a QR code isn’t difficult and it can be a very easy to get someone to the exact page you want.

Imagine doing this in your store.  Someone visits and they want to know how to assemble the product, you link to the manufacturer’s instructions on their website.

You could put a link to the specs of the used car you are selling.

This is just a very interactive way to engage your customers without asking them to type in a website address…

But using this on a TV screen is just whole new level marketing. 

Very Cool.

Thursday Blog Topic: Infinity Customer –

Quote: “Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” TS Eliot

Here

 

Timing is everything… so what do you think of this?

I’m a little like… “too soon” – but I’ll also say this, I’m not her audience. 

However

She clearly made this hat and she knows her audience.

So use your judgement.  Not everyone will be happy with your decisions all the time. 

Once you attract a tribe you’ll know the products they desire, then just go for it.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 939 – The WHY You Talk to Your Customer

Thursday Blog Topic: Infinity Customer –

Quote: “Shifting customer needs are common in today’s marketplace.”

 

I think this quote is the understatement of the year.

Traditionally when we have thought about shifting customer needs we have concerned ourselves with trends or seasons…right?

There are people that remember the mortgage crisis or even the attacks of September 11… well, those are the shifting customer needs we are discussing right now.

In a seasonal trend, you take mittens off the shelf and replace with swim suits. It’s pretty manageable.  You will understand that the calendar dictates your next move…

But now… right now, what the heck are you suppose to do?

A month ago we were just past Valentines Day and heading toward St. Patrick’s Day… change your color scheme from red to green.  Your customer need shifted from heart candy to green beer… well, you get my point.

But shifting from February 25 economy roaring to March 25 shelter in place… all of this without a mass tragedy one time rip the band aid off occurrence… it’s surreal, right?

So what do your customers need?

Your customers need stability.  They are living in an insecure world.  You feel it… and you experience it.

But how do you give that stability… well, look at your core business and what do you actually sell?  Do you dance lessons which are a way to foster the growth and confidence of the child? You can still provide that.  You may be giving video lessons… but how can you help the parent? Can you provide an article and extra assignment for the parent to do a practice check list?

Think of your basic product – not what you sell but WHY you sell.  WHY does someone actually buy your product or service.

Focus on that WHY and provide more love and attention in this area.  This is how you bond with your Infinity Customers and keep them around until we all achieve certainty

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 938 – Choose Forward

Wednesday’s Blog Topic: Midweek Motivation –

Quote: May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears. -Nelson Mandela

 

My wish for you today is that you stop and think about today’s quote of the day. 

Make your choices today… at least as many as you can based on information in front of you.  If you have the choice, choose hope.

Make those decisions positive and based on the future.

Basing decision on fear will keep you from growing and will cause you to shrink.  You have goals… keep striving for the goals if do not keep going forward you actually go backward. 

Today, choose forward.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 937 – Talk To Your Customers OR Someone Else Will.

Tuesday Blog Topic: Content and Consistency –

Quote:  “You have to take action to make it happen” – Jenny Hunt

 

How’s it going?  If you’re like anyone else I’ve talked to today it’s almost minute by minute.

The virus situation has left everyone without a direction.

Well, not everyone.  There are plenty of people that are ready to roll in this type of crisis.

I’m not talking about the people hoarding products.  I’m talking about the people who have been there before…

And by “been there before” I’m referring to a crisis.

It seems like there are two camps. Those that have given up or bought into the bad, and those that are fighting.  I think it has to do more with the stages of grief.  But let’s just say in a time when things are out of your control you need to find something to control.

That’s when the fight in you needs to take over.

One great quote, that you’ve probably hear before, is “the money is in the list” – that means your list of contacts provide you money.

What if you had a list, right now, that you could email and share a special product you made with them.  Something they desire and want to buy…

That is what you are working for… and if you don’t have a list, start!

Take this opportunity to attract people to your business.  Just because you are “closed” or because the phone has stopped ringing… it doesn’t mean that people have stopped buying.

They are just as lost as you and looking for a leader.

Start attracting them by sharing information they desire.  When they get this information you build trust.  I sent an email earlier today to our core customers and it’s sitting at about a 61% open rate… it will grow. 

I’m working on a couple of big projects to help bond this group and build loyalty.  It’s not designed to sell them more, it’s designed to keep them.

If you’re not talking to your customers… someone else will.

Get out there and decide to build the bond.  This will get better, don’t wait until it does, start the chatting now.

Even if it’s just 4 people on your list, just talk to them.  This is a long term plan but it’s a great way to build an asset at your business.

TribeologyBlog.com – Episode 936 – Share Your Audience

Monday Topic: Credibility —

Quote: “…you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back” MayaAngelou

 

Woah, what’s up?  Has live turned completely upside down… like a month ago you never would have imagined your life today.

I know I had that moment yesterday at the grocery store.

It was that moment I was standing in line and felt like I was in an unrecognizable country of empty shelves and 6′ distances.  It makes me sad.

But here’s the deal… this is reality, for now.

You are going through your own individual struggle but one thing I will say is leaders need to lead.

As the expert of your business you are struggling to pivot… but there is one thing you have, your audience.

Now more than ever they need to hear from you.

Not in the bargain bargain bargain sense.  They need you to lead. 

Not in the “everything is going to be OK” sense.

They just need to hear from you… think about what they need know.   And here’s the deal… think out of the box.  The biggest asset you have is your tribe and it’s time to share it.

There are lots of businesses in your area and information is a commodity.  Share information.

Often I use examples from our marina…

Right now we are “out of season”, granted we are rapidly approaching the boating season, but right now we can help our area businesses by sharing information with our customers.  We started a restaurant guide to open businesses… and this week we are starting an online group to celebrate the area by sharing good memories.

It’s a simple thing, but it’s a big value to our customers.  They visit our area all summer and care about the businesses, they appreciate the information.

This is a different form of leadership, but very important.

Share your audience.
