It’s Not Sexy… But It’s Time to Talk Conversion Rates

Not properly analyzing the success of every campaign might seem like an isolated issue. What you don’t realize is this lack of knowledge instigates several unintended (and seemingly unrelated) problems.

Article clips:

“With no standard method to evaluate marketing campaigns business owners are left with no way to calculate investment costs, leads generated, appointments scheduled, deals closed or the final conversion rate of specific campaigns. You have no clue what’s working. These businesses don’t have the resources to track the necessary information or set-up these systems to complement their business and marketing model.

There is no solution that will work for every small business owner. But there is a solution that will work for your business, you just have to find it. Once you start looking into the number of qualified leads that come in and the close rate, you will get a better idea of what kind of CRM service you need. Do you simply need call tracking? Do you need web analytics and keyword tracking?

Marketing ROI, Golden Mailer

From personal experience, I will warn you that you might discover you have a bigger problem that needs to be addressed before anything else is done. If your close rate of qualified leads is at 15 percent, you need first to identify where in the process things start to “go off the rails,” and fix it. It could be an administration issue, poor communication with staff or a larger problem related to the kind of leads you are attracting.”

Should Business Owners ALWAYS be “On Call”?

January 14th, 2015 by

How to build client trust and still set boundaries…

I was reading through a discussion posted by Paul Castain on LinkedIn about sales reps remaining “on call” after hours. The responses all seemed to have a single underlying theme. It wasn’t stated out right in some of the responses, but it was at the foundation of their point. You need to set boundaries but still make sure your clients trust that they are a priority.

This is never as simple as it seems. Some respondents went as far as to say that they pick up EVERY single call they get – regardless of the day or time.

On Call Photo, Golden Mailer, Blog

This made me laugh a little because, well, that simply isn’t possible. You can’t take every call – Even when it’s the middle of the workday. You might be on a job site, talking to another customer, or installing a garage door. Of course, depending on your industry, your response time will vary… As will your customer’s needs.

For local businesses owners it’s hard to let it go to voice mail…

This is very true. For many businesses that invest a large portion of their budget into some form of advertising, missing a single call could cost them their entire conversion rate (again, depending on what your median sales point is). So they are left to push against the ocean. A point well made by Lon Lohmiller when he stated, “experience has proven that a work/life balance is critical for optimal performance at the times when the rep is “on”, which implies that there has to be “off” time that in the end I believe should be self imposed.”

Why can’t it be as simple as the “hours of operation” listed on YP.com, Google Places, or Yelp?

Once again, it’s just not that simple. Your customer might have the same work hours that you have listed on your website. So do you play phone tag for the rest of your life? No, most business owners that are out in the field for the majority of the day have what they call a “bat phone” – It’s a cell phone that office calls get forwarded to when they aren’t in the office.

Evaluate your target rich demographic and determine when they are most likely to call and try to make yourself available at those times. Some business owners do need to tweak their hours so customers can reach them on the weekends or evenings.

Set boundaries from the beginning!

If an existing customer calls you at an inappropriate time, don’t pick up, listen to the voice mail, and if it is in fact urgent, call them back immediately. If it can wait a day, call them back within 24 hours. Otherwise, you are setting a precedent that any problem is an emergency and will be dealt with immediately. This quickly becomes a habit and before you know it you’re camping with your family and the “bat phone” is attached to your hip. You get burnt out and can’t perform at an optimal level.

On Call Photo, Golden Mailer, Blog

Even the type A personality working seven days a week will get burnt out or over commit their time and resources to customers. It doesn’t matter how much you LOVE YOUR JOB, you still need to take a step back and focus on something else. Tunnel vision and the compulsions to make every single customer your first priority and your best friend will eventually crash and burn. Every client should be a priority. Make sure the squeaky wheel doesn’t get all your grease, and most importantly, be a dependable and reliable vendor that every client can trust.

Sales Negotiating: Create Sales that Benefit Both Parties

January 8th, 2015 by

“If you want them off the phone so bad, why don’t you just hang up?” – Boiler Room, Movie (2000)

I would like to take a trip back to Ben Affleck’s short, yet unforgettable, role in the 2000 film Boiler Room. It doesn’t matter if it’s B2B, B2C, wholesale, retail or just dreams that you are pitching…

“There is no such thing as a no sale call. A sale is made on every call you make. Either you sell the client some stock or he sells you a reason he can’t. Either way a sale is made, the only question is who is gonna close? You or him? Now be relentless, that’s it, I’m done.” – Boiler Room boiler room, golden Mailer, Always Be Closing, Tristan Barger

We would NEVER operate under such crewed methods, language or overall goals, but he has a point. If you sell tires, every time the phone rings, there’s potential to sell a tire.

According to www.JustSell.com‘s negotiation guide, during negotiation…

  1. Use open-ended questions to confirm your understanding of their needs
  2. State your understanding of how the prospect or customer will benefit from your product or service – confirm this is accurate by asking
  3. Be prepared for tactical responses from prospects and customers – whether it’s the flinch following your price quote or silence – don’t react and instead respond with more questions
  4. Listen
  5. Don’t rush to fill pauses – become comfortable with moments of silence
  6. Be prepared to change the value proposition to support price concessions–support your price integrity by adjusting the overall value (e.g., change delivery times, follow-up schedules, service period, etc.)
  7. Try to identify agreement on small items to help develop positive momentum – summarize these agreements periodically
  8. Take notes to demonstrate you’re commitment to the negotiation and to help you find opportunities to summarize the smaller agreements verbally with the prospect/ customer

Always be cautious of your client’s time, space and boundaries. Don’t over step. Give them room to breath and never force them into something you don’t believe in yourself.

Most importantly… Never end a sales call or meeting with:

“Fine. I’m gonna take you off my list of successful people today.” – Boiler Room

If you haven’t seen the film, it’s not for children; however, it begins with a great quote from the lead character:

“I read this article awhile back, that said that Microsoft employs more millionaire secretary’s that any other company in the world. They took stock options over Christmas bonuses. It was a good move. I remember there was this picture, of one of the groundskeepers next to his Ferrari. Blew my mind. You see *stuff* like that, and it just plants seeds, makes you think it’s possible, even easy. And then you turn on the TV, and there’s just more of it. The $87 Million lottery winner, that kid actor that just made 20 million on his last movie, that Internet stock that shot through the roof, you could have made millions if you had just gotten in early, and that’s exactly what I wanted to do: get in. I didn’t want to be an innovator any more, I just wanted to make the quick and easy buck, I just wanted in. Nobody wants to work for it anymore. There’s no honor in taking that after school job at Mickey Dee’s, honor’s in the dollar, kid. So I went another way; I became a stockbroker.” – Boiler Room

This is when Sales Negotiating comes in…

You need to create a sales that benefits both parties! Everyone leaves HAPPPY!

The realization that it’s real people, with real lives, and real families that you are selling to, that’s the moment you become a sales person. The small businesses, the home loans, the company that employees your neighbor… It’s everywhere and there IS NO EASY WAY in. It takes work, time, trust, experience, knowledge, and most importantly, the ability to fall and get right back up and pick up the phone or serve the next customer. Simply knowing that you are selling them something that will benefit everyone is the only talking point you will need.

“Its strange to think how that knock changed everything, everything, hey don’t get me wrong here, I don’t believe in fate, I believe in odds.” – Boiler Room

How Can My Business Get Penalized On Facebook?

November 18th, 2014 by

Is Facebook the best fit for your business & how to promote your product through blogs & non-promotional posts?

While the “rules” for promotional B2B activity on Facebook change more frequently than the Yahoo! logo design, Google algorithms, iPhones, or American’s hip sizes around the holidays… It is important to keep up with these changes to protect your company’s social media efforts on Facebook from being penalized.

So, how can my business get penalized on Facebook? Facebook recently announced that the networking giant can penalize post boosts that are too “promotional” as of last week. It’s not always clear as to what is “too promotional” but the decision was based on a survey determining that most Facebook users prefer to see stories and friend updates in their newsfeed rather than what Facebook deems product pushing.

According to www.SocialMediopolis.com, Facebook promotional regulations can best be defined as any of the following:

  • – Posts that solely push people to buy a product or install an app
  • – Posts that push people to enter promotions and sweepstakes with no real context
  • – Posts that reuse the exact same content from ads

An excellent article on Jon Loomer’s blog used a great example of what Facebook will consider too promotional:

Golden Mailer Blog

After reading what they determine is “promotional” it’s clear that businesses with Facebook groups or pages should stick to boosting articles of interest that lead the reader back to your website or Facebook page. This is just another reason why frequent blogging and content creation is such an important aspect of your branding. A recent survey published by www.hubspot.com found that blogging is a vital part of lead generation.

How can blogging benefit sales leads and keep your company from being penalized on Facebook?

By pushing your blogs that are educational and timely to your readers (this does not include transparent product or service pitches in the form of a blog), you can reach your social following and also increase engagement. Below are some recent stats collected from www.hubspot.com.

  1. Companies that blog have 97% more inbound leads than companies that don’t
  2. 92% of companies who blogged multiple times a day acquired a customer through their blog
  3. 81% of marketers rated their blog as useful or better
  4. 57% of US online adults read blogs
  5. 97% more inbound links for companies that blog
  6. Two-thirds of blog readers say a brand mention or promotion within the context of the blog influences their purchasing decision.
  7. 80% of adults say bloggers “can be very or somewhat influential in shaping product or service purchasing decisions.”
  8. Companies with more than 200 blog articles have 5X the leads than those with 10 or fewer.
Golden Mailer Blog

Facebook also announced a few weeks ago that sweepstakes and contests would also penalize a page. These rules are much more complex and something businesses should be constantly aware of!

Is Facebook really important for businesses?

In short, yes. But that is something that every business must weigh against resources and rewards. Below are some facts recently printed in a report from www.SalesStaff.com that might help business owners determine if Facebook is really the best place for their financial and time resources…

Mark Zuckerberg, the social network’s founder and CEO, said earlier this month that while a typical Facebook user could potentially view 1,500 updates a day, he sees only about 100. That means businesses that want to appear in that feed need to produce “really good content that’s going to be compelling to your customers.”

Part 3: SEO’s Impact On Customers & Online Reviews

November 14th, 2014 by

Part three of this five part blog series explains the essential need for business owners to understand the increasing influence SEO has on how customers receive and perceive online reviews on sites like Yelp & Angie’s List.

Even if you’re not ready to be on the Internet, your customers aren’t always on your timetable. As you can see below, almost 100% of Internet users read reviews and they affect almost all of their decisions.

Golden Mailer, SEO and Online Review Blog

According to a Channel Advisor survey, ‘Through the Eyes of the Consumer’:

  1. 92% of US Internet users read online reviews
  2. 46% of consumers were influenced to purchase based on reviews
  3. 43% of consumers were deterred from purchasing based on reviews
  4. 3% of consumers reported their decision was unaffected by reviews

Understanding the impact SEO has on online reviews & ratings…

A huge part of properly managing SEO for your online pictures, profiles, blogs, and websites is linking them all to your company. Every directory submission, description, and summary you issue are vital keys to your company branding. Consumers are regularly browsing through sites like Google Places where they will find photos, links, and bios of your company… and your competitors. If you don’t properly leverage SEO for all the content and graphics that you post online, your company will get lost in cyber space while your local competition is showing up in every search and on every site.

…Especially the impact online reviews have on customers.

All these graphics and summaries get linked to various review sites. Local customers rely heavily on these sites to provide them with the best possible information before hiring a company. While you can ask your customers to go online and provide a review for your company, typically the only customers that have the motivation to take time out of their day and review your products or services are the ones that feel you went above and beyond, or the very opposite, the customers feeling that they got burned.

There are multiple ways to look at a negative review:

Although it can be an emotional hit, bad reviews should be handled with care; they should never be responded to rashly or emotionally. Chances are the bad review is about a particular experience, not you as a person.

Look at any negative reviews as opportunities to showcase your company’s excellent customer service, and dedication to quality. Negative reviews can be good PR if you handle them tactfully. These complaints can also serve as a guide for things your company can improve on, because hey, nobody’s perfect.

How to respond to a review?

When responding to a review the best thing to do is to engage the customer. It is important that your tone is not defensive or confrontational; rather it should be one of concern. Be nice, be courteous, and genuinely try to help them. Know that it is incredibly hard to win an argument with a berated customer. Do not try; it will most likely reflect poorly on you and your company. Take the higher ground. Try to understand what went wrong and make every effort you can to put the situation right.

You can read more from the full blog here: “How to Handle A Bad Review

Why are reviews SO important?

One of the first places potentials customers look when searching for local businesses are review sites. Not to mention sites like Yelp and Angie’s List are so well optimized that they rank incredibly high in search engine results. Every review is important. If you can tell a customer isn’t satisfied before the job is finished, take the extra time and money to fix it before they cost you dozens of potential customers with a negative review.

A recent blog on Bnetworking.info stated the following: “Reviews – First of all, do not attempt to make reviews. Internet users will immediately know that they are not true. Reviews are really important in local citations. They are very similar to site linking since they give search engines as well as citation sites the notion that your business is just as excellent as you state it is. You can even find citation sites that will not list you in generic searches if you do not have a favorable review. Thus, once you are done with your profile, spend time to build reviews.”

Local residents search for a business that is in their community, affordable, and trustworthy.

This is why online reviews are so important. You can’t be afraid of the criticisms people leave. You should face these reviews head-on. Never ask a customer to remove a review. And most importantly, you must understand that even if you’re not ready to be on the Internet, customers aren’t always on your timetable.

Don’t hide from bad reviews…

The worst thing is being afraid to deal with it. I’ve worked with some business owners and they didn’t even know that they had dozens of reviews on Yelp. This is customer engagement at it’s best. It’s raw and real. Embrace the good and the bad because that’s what makes you human and that’s how customers trust you.

Part 2: Money-Back Guarantees… Is It A Ploy?

November 12th, 2014 by

Part two of this five part blog series provides a deep look into the relationships businesses have with other businesses and how to trust business service money-back guarantees.

Money-Back Guarantees Blog, Golden Mailer Money-Back Guarantees Blog, Golden Mailer

As a small business owner, it is important to understand the level of trust you are investing into another business when working together, especially when it comes to money-back guarantees. When partnering with other businesses or vendors in regards to advertising, branding, product quality, etc., be sure to have a mutual understanding of what exactly you are being promised and vice versa.

As money-back guarantees often come with a lot of loopholes, reading the fine print is key, and customer satisfaction should always be the first priority when deciding whom to partner with.

Before You Trust a Money-back Guarantee

Prior to making your decision about working with another business for their product or service, be sure to check, double check, and triple check the both of you are on the same page. Here are some questions to consider asking regarding your money-back guarantee before making anything official.

  1. Can I get a copy of the terms in print?
  2. How long before I get my refund?
  3. Will all additional expenses be included in the money-back guarantee?
  4. What if I’m not satisfied?
  5. How do I go about requesting for a refund?

Be sure to get the name of the person you dealt with when making a deal involving a money-back guarantee. It’s O.K. to ask repeatedly for clarification. Consider your potential losses (time and money-wise) if you are unsatisfied. Will another business’ promise to you hurt your business if it backfires? Always be fully aware of the money-back guarantee before you make any decision final.

Where to Focus Your Guarantee Promises

As a small business owner, you will most likely experience having to make up a money-back guarantee policy of your own for a product or service. The most important guarantee you can offer in your policy is customer satisfaction. Whether you promise to increase online search rankings through SEO services or drive more customers to the business through appropriate marketing practices, you must follow through on your contract based on what the customer claims. Money-back guarantees should be focused on products or services that a business invests in to help with marketing, advertising, branding, design, packaging, delivery, or any service that promises to drive more business.

Below is a review posted on Yelp from a business owner unsatisfied with a logo design and storefront signage company. Read the review and take note of how upset the customer is; the customer paints a bad image of the company resulting in the customer losing a client and the client losing money.

“Company X advertised in writing and verbally a money-back guarantee if I wasn’t satisfied with the design and decided not to use it. The manager himself promised me a full and SPEEDY refund if I was unsatisfied but it’s been over four months and I still haven’t seen a single dime, now he won’t even call me back. Not only did they waste my time, take my money, and lie to me, but also they are STILL advertising a money-back guarantee policy. They can’t be trusted and don’t honor their promise to customer satisfaction. I would have been better off tossing my money in the trash, at least it would have saved me time.” *Business name will remain anonymous

Understanding the Fine Print

Money-back guarantees are often littered with loopholes to cheat customers out of money. Sometimes a company will refund the service charge, but not the initial set-up fee. Sometimes a company might refund the labor fee, but not the cost of materials. A company may sometimes even refund the materials, and not the cost of the labor. Loopholes in money-back guarantees can range from anything regarding how long you have to act before your “guarantee” period is over to how much of the money you will actually be getting back. Ultimately, it is your job as a small business owner to be aware of such loopholes and read the fine print when partnering with another business in order to avoid a loss for your business, or even your customers in the future.

Part 1: The REAL Threats Local Businesses Will Face in 2015

Business License Renewal: It’s That Time of Year

November 4th, 2014 by

Business owners in cities all over the Bay Area should be on the lookout for business license renewal notices.

According to Pleasant Hill’s OUTLOOK bi-monthly newsletter:

Business License Renewal, Golden Mailer

The notices for most cities will be mailed around mid December to the mailing addresses on file.

Address Change?

If your business mailing address has changed since last December, notify the city’s Business License Division as soon as possible to update your records and avoid any delay on receiving your renewal notice.

This will allow business owners the full grace period ending for most Easy Bay Area cities on January 31, 2015.

Closed or No Longer in business?

You should also notify the Business License Division if you are no longer in business, have sold, closed, or moved out of the city. Most cities require you to send a brief note explaining the situation; signed and dated, to the Business License Division of the city your business is located in.

No Business License?

If you are in business or own rental property in a city & are not yet licensed, call the city’s Business License Division as soon as possible to have the appropriate forms sent to you or answer any of your questions.

Part 1: The REAL Threats Local Businesses Will Face in 2015

October 29th, 2014 by

This five part blog series takes a deep look into highly competitive industry landscapes and tips to successfully compete with the “Big Guys” and the “Little Guys.”

iStock_000018463864Small-color-118x118

Part one of this series provides a deep look into the struggles local businesses face in highly concentrated markets. Logic would point to highly concentrated markets as being safe investments. Why else would so many people be in the business?

What does this mean for the business owners?

Although there are so many successful businesses in the Bay Area, you MUST appreciate and understand what these businesses have in common and what makes them unique. Determining what parts of each business ultimately leads them to success, or failure, is the key to swimming through local competition.

Many people might assume that the “Big Guy,” or corporate chains, pose the greatest threat to the smaller “mom-and-pop” locally-owned businesses. Whether you sell specialty cupcakes or professionally designed fruit baskets, your local competition is the most challenging when it comes to your bottom line.

Local businesses are faced with some of the most difficult circumstances when it comes to attracting potential clients and maintaining current loyal customers. For example, a locally-owned smog station or auto repair shop competes with as many as ten businesses at any given time. These rival businesses may offer the exact same services, advertising comparable prices, and are just a few blocks away. This is what we call a HIGHLY competitive industry and something locally-owned businesses face everyday. They lose customers everyday as they struggle to meet and exceed discounts, entertainment, and customer service.

So how do local businesses in highly competitive fields survive and maintain a steady income flow?

It’s imperative to create and implement a system that ensures financial stability – this requires much more than simply making sure employee benefits and vendors get paid on time. You must have enough financial flexibility that will allow you to keep your employees happy and your customers satisfied while continuing to fund the research and development needed to offer better services and advertising domination over the competition.

Top 2 rules to surviving the REAL threat:

  1. Employees, honesty, & customer service are the foundation of your reputation: Your customers’ point of contact or sales representative is one of the strongest assets you have when it comes to direct interaction and company reputation. The success or failure of your team in this area will make or break the success of your company. This goes for every industry – auto, food, construction, childcare. The person your customer interacts with the most eventually becomes the face of your company on Yelp, customer referrals, social media, and all other reputation management, consumer review sites, and word of mouth. You learn the hard way when an employee simply doesn’t understand your service offerings, but still manages to sell them. That’s a scary thing. Grow, expand, and develop innovative service offerings, but do not let customers purchase these packages until you’ve had time to perform acid tests and work through any bumps to ensure the production team is working like a well-oiled machine.
  2. Long lines & waiting can lose customers… forever: You aren’t Disneyland. People will wait in line at Disneyland for two hours to ride Magic Mountain because it’s the only place in the world they can. If there are 20 other people in line to buy a sandwich, they will simply walk out the door and go to the deli around the corner. Time is precious and when they can get the exact same thing for the exact same amount of money, don’t make them wait 20 minutes for a sandwich.

Customers Agree! Locally Targeted Advertising Grows Business

September 25th, 2014 by

Developing a Long Term and Trusted Relationship with your Advertising Firm Takes Time and Proof of Success

Partnering with an advertising and marketing team that understands your customers is one of the most important assets to a successful campaign.

Locally targeted Advertising, Golden Mailer

Work with an experienced professional

To achieve the expected level of success and ROI you need to work with someone willing to dedicate personal time and devotion to your company’s success. You should expect an experienced direct point of contact that will help you determine the best places to allocate your budget based on your customer demographics.

“After only 4 months of advertising with Golden Mailer coupons our customer increase was so large that we are adding a second fence crew to cater to zones bringing in such high volume results. We were amazed by the immediate increase in customer traffic and excited to expand to more zones, grow our company, and continue working with the team at Golden Mailer.” G & G Deck and Fence, Landscaping

“My personal point of contact is fantastic! He is responsive and proactive. He has a sense of urgency and always updates me when new mailers are going out. He has patience with my lack of response at times and always follows up with me. My experience has been extremely positive.” – Vitality Bowls & Utopia Tanning and Spa, Consumer Services

Make them earn your trust

Every advertising campaign should have a goal. In most cases it’s to bring more customers in the door. If your advertising partner can’t show you that the tactics they are using work, it’s time to move on.

“Golden Mailer has consistently brought business through my restaurant doors since my very first campaign with them. Customers bring in the coupons on a daily basis, both at lunch and dinner. This is the reason I have been using Golden Mailer’s services monthly, for over a year now!” – Kana Sushi, Restaurant

This was over a year ago and I have been using Golden Coupons ever since. They operate in a professional manner, always stay on top of my marketing needs and readily available should I have any requests!” – Kana Sushi, Restaurant
