nice response... only 11% of people in sales are natural salespeople... you must fall in that 11%
Thanks for the complement Rosita. The reality of it is that a great product will sell itself though ...
...but do i want to be spammed by my florist?
Like I said previously tiger, we HATE spammers. A spammer will buy a mail list on the black market and send a million messages asking people to buy a standard commodity like viagra.
We run personalized, timely, opt-in campaigns on a permission-marketing basis. Don't mistake the fact that just because we use email as part of our overall customer relationship management solution, that we are somehow spammers. There's a big difference. If a customer doesn't want to sign up, then all they have to do is NOT put their name and details into the system ... that's why it's called 'permission-based' marketing. I think Rosita can confirm to you, that there are customers out there who like to be contacted about important dates in their lives. With our system you can remove a customer's name from the database at the touch of a button if they ask you to. Anyone attempting to use our servers for any kind of spamming, will be strongly asked to desist immediately ..
It's very possible that you use permission-based marketing as a consumer already. Have you ever asked your local car dealer to contact you when a new model comes out ? Have you ever asked a bookstore to let you know when an author you like brings out a new book ? Have you ever asked a video store to call you when a movie goes on general release ?
The reality of it is that permission-based marketing solutions are going to roll out in some form in almost every big industry out there. I'll bet you that if you go to a business directory, you won't be able to find a single industry where you can get a bespoke, custom, piece of relationship management software like this for less than $1000's of dollars.
We have an A1 development team behind this system. It's a truly global solution that we can serve to you over the Internet. For that reason, we can afford to offer you such a great deal. If you truly believe that this product has a place in the market, and that you may eventually sign up to this service, let me explain to you why it's a good idea to do so early ...
This is a new technology, the first wave of florists who sign up to our service (let's call them early adopters), will gain extra benefits. Not only will they have more time to build their customer databases, more time to advertise to customers in their area, and more time to attract their competitor's clients away from them. But also, by tying customers to your service, you'll be throwing up what are called 'switch barriers' to discourage customers you have gained, from switching their custom to your competitor's business.
How many of your customers are going to take the time to cancel their reminders with your service, then fill out the reminder sheet again with your competitor ? I'm guessing not many. Especially when you consider the great branding you'll have already achieved by having your company linked with the happiest occasions in their lives (eg. Anniversaries, birthdays, holidays). To put it simply, the early adopters get the biggest slice of the cake. Don't be left dragging your feet on this one !
Furthermore, what I will do for you is this. I will a give you special 'early adopter' promotional ID, which you can use to sign up for our service. We haven't offered this promotional deal to any of our online customers yet. So this is the first time we've used it.
If you sign up for one year and include this five character promotional ID on sign up NEBZB, you will receive one month extra for free ! That means you'll get 14 months for the price of 12 ... ( that's around $17 per month for the newsletter, marketing materials and unlimited personalized customer reminder emails / around £9.57 per month for the UK) for a limited time only. Also, if you PM me your number and a suitable time to call, I will ring you personally and talk you through the best way to use our product to increase your turnover and loyalty !
