Business Growth Summer Strategy Sessions: More Details Announced

PeterDrucker_ThePurposeofBusinessSummer Strategy Sessions 2016 are all about business growth and increased through new and active existing customers, waking up inactive existing customers.  It couldn’t be any simpler

Peter Drucker says, and I paraphrase, the purpose of business is to create and keep customers through demonstrated value, marketing and innovation.

Drucker’s name will come up often as we facilitate strategy sessions for your business or non profit as CEO, Owner, or Executive Director, or as head of your key Team members who are all in attendance.  Similarly so will the term High ROI, Return on Investment, competitor awareness, and terms like evaluation, ongoing monitoring and analysis.

Bob Rempel, CEO and founder of RempelGroup Consulting and Strategy, and their Integrity Online Services agency will make a special presentation on Sweet Spot Management and Leadership, the title of a forthcoming book.

Bob has a popular presentation for groups about business, organizations, and life called Sweet Spot Living & Managing.

You, the Authority, the Opinion Leader, the Influencer.

Becoming an Opinion Leader and authoritative spokesperson in local, regional and national markets is another key part of the discussion.  Today the term Influencer is used widely to describe their presence and influence on social media and websites.  All participants are also provided immediate membership in the 20-20 Group: Leaders with Vision Network created and co-ordinated by Bob Rempel, which includes ongoing coaching and training.

The luxury 5 star all inclusive hotel in a highly desirable resort location, and a very flexible agenda we create with you, will provide plenty of time for relationship building with your partner and/or your team of key Staff.

The whole process and event will rejuvenate you and your people or partner and prepare you a busy fall and winter seasons ahead as you implement the strategies that are developed here.

Summer Strategy Sessions start on July 1 in Ixtapa, Mexico and last for three months.

For more information please review our previous Summer Strategy Sessions announcement blog post or contact us by email:  bob at rempelgroup.com  Special prices in effect by quote for all July bookings and for all Team bookings.

 

 

Make Warm Contacts, Warm Calls

makewarmcalls

Today I share a very basic but often overlooked method of building solid long term contacts. I’ve always hated cold calling. Selling at its worst, I felt. Most people are the same. [bctt tweet=”Never cold call again to steal a title from a sales book. Make warm calls.” username=”bobremp”]

My personal approach to it is simply look for current opportunities to contact specific individuals generally in your target markets where you can congratulate them on a recent positive announcement, promotion, even offer a referral. Make the connection by having something substantive to say, to offer.

Never ask for a purchase decision, even through referencing an event or a product you are working on it quite acceptable as long as it is part of the conversation. You’ll see opportunities in traditional media, in your social media and comments from friends and others. Phone or an email with appropriate non sales subject line work best. Reference other individuals you both know if appropriate.

Here is Chris “Kubby” Kubbernus’s article, “How To Make Warm Calls” and what he does. Follow Chris on Twitter @ChrisKubby

“Here is a very simple trick to make it rain.

Okay maybe it won’t rain cash-money upon you. I’m not magical, although someone did call me a wizard the other day. But this simple trick has helped me pick up new projects and keep revenue coming in.

You’ve heard of the cold call right? Well the warm call is just like that but…err warm. Let me explain. The warm call is about calling a prospect that you already have real contact with, at the right time. Here’s how I do it.

1.
I pay attention on social media. Is that prospect interacting with me or my company? Liking my posts, commenting? What are THEY posting on social. Can I comment?

2.
I make a call to them, a physical phone call – remember those? Phone calls might seem old school but they give you way more context and opportunity than email.

 

I typically get people on the phone right after lunch or early morning. Once on the call I make a light pitch, or I comment on something they’ve done. I deliver a clear, thoughtful and non-pushy message which basically says “If you need help in (insert your service), we can help and were doing it all ready for Company X, Y, and Z.

See no real magic here, just thoughtful and good communication. If you do this you’ll find people to be very receptive and you might sell something. Typically I end up a lot wiser than I was before the call because people will give you information such as new hires, perhaps they are changing roles soon, or when they are doing their budgeting etc… Make note of this information, the more informed you are the better position you’ll be in to create success.”

5 Great Reasons To Schedule A Summer Strategy Session For Your Business in Ixtapa, Mexico Now!

(View the additional Update to this Post, by clicking HERE)

Stop Please! Don’t Make All Your Summer Plans Just Yet! Are You Letting Your Business or Organization, Your Personal Brand, Your Team Building, and even your Relationship Slide Downhill?

5 Great Reasons To Schedule A Summer Strategy Session in Ixtapa, Mexico now!

CI_090224_127_1It’s summer time and the living should be easy. You’ve heard the song. Most of you don’t live in the land of the Endless Summer that some of us are blessed with, so the pressure to ease off a bit at work is there, and it should be.

You are driven to be successful, for your organization or team, your brand, your family, and yourself. I know that getting more customers, increasing revenue and helping your organization operate efficiently with value for the end user in mind always does not take the summer. For Owners, CEOs, Directors, Managers it’s almost always top of mind.

Or as an Athlete or Coach or GM in professional or amateur sport. The summer time is either Olympics time like this year, or it’s training camp or training time. Plus you’re swirling in the media and social media storm constantly.

Same for musicians, entertainers, actors, actresses, authors. You rarely get downtime. Work is constant. As well, you’re always in the public eye. Tremendous added pressure to anyone’s life.

Don’t ignore all the cross pressures, I suggest. Family and relationships and personal revitalization are essential to a stable existence that makes your whole life better.

Let me show a way you can have it all this summer.

I’m Bob Rempel, and I want to give you 5 reasons to come to Ixtapa, Mexico this summer and early fall for the best business and personal trip you’ll have in many a year. Plus we’re going to work together and build towards a great partnership. You’ll be joining our 20-20 Leaders’ with Vision program and exclusive network of individuals.

1. Amazing, Breathtaking Location with an all-inclusive 5 star Accommodations and Dining. An easy direct trip from Los Angeles and Houston and one stop from many other locations.

2. Romance and Relationship Renewal to the max with your partner. It’s for 2. Or alternatively we can make this a Team event for your business or organization. Strategy, team building, rejuvenation all in one

3. Add ons to the trip that suit you: Laptop and school supply donations to local school classes, cultural immersion, view business and investment opportunities in MX, special local tequila & coffee tastings,Spanish lessons, and much more. Flexibility is key.

4. 4+ hours over 3 days planning strategy together to increase customers and revenues for your business or non profit or 4+ hours training with us on how to master social media with a proactive strategy. Plus more our prep time prior to our meetings and for summary and next steps after the meetings. More flexibility here of course to find the right combination of personal and business time.

5. Value pricing. You’re not the kind of person who usually asks the price first, any ways but you do want good value at the end of the day. So you should.

This is a Beyond Platinum all inclusive personal and business trip. When you add in the value of new customers the strategies we develop will obtain, or the enhancement of your personal or business brand, you might even think you should pay us double.

I’ll be waiting to see you. Our Summer 2016 Strategy & Training promotion ends on September 30.
