Advance Stalled Sales
by Kelli Sample

If you could close just one more sale each week, what would that mean to your business and income?

Why do people get stalled in their decision to work with you?

What do you have in common with those people that are stalled in their decision?

Every business owner experiences time where it feels like everyone in their pipeline is stalling for some reason or another. Learning just 3 simple ways to “release” the indecision of your prospects can make a huge difference to relieve the stress of stalled sales and help increase profits.

Discover how to identify if the prospect is actually interested or if they are just avoiding the ‘no’. Learn and get ready to apply three ways to move prospects from “I don’t know” to “Yes, let’s get started!” How to create urgency without creating pressure. Learn how to know when to move on and regain your time and energy for those prospects that need your help!

Join us if you want to support your prospects in making better decisions.

ATTENDEE BONUS: If you want to have a repeatable, proven process for engaging and converting your prospects, you’ll want to book a discovery session with me.

Create Stronger Networking Connections

Be Prepared to create stronger networking connections.  Be Prepared is not just the Boy Scout motto.  It’s the way to get the most out of your networking efforts.

Whether you aim to do personal or professional networking, Meetup.com is a great site for enlarging your network.   Here we’ll share a couple of tips to use at Meetup.com and other networking sites to help you make stronger networking connections.

Before you go to your networking event or Meetup, take a look at who else will be there.  At meetup, just click on their names and you’ll be taken to the profiles of attendees.  Make a list of two or three (or more) who you’d like to meet.  Have a question or two in mind for when you meet them.  Include “I noticed on your Member profile that your ideal prospect is “X” – can you tell me more about that?  Or, your profile says you’re also a Member of “X” groups; how do you like them?

The first time I shared this tip with a member of Wisconsin Business Owners, just before a Meetup, she was looking at the list of attendees online and exclaimed, “Welcome, Theresa” as the new member who’d registered walked through the door.  Theresa was pleasantly surprised to be so warmly greeted by name, and a light bulb clicked on for the member who greeted Theresa.  Both got off to a strong start for the day.

Of course, if you want to be recognized, do your profile with a picture of you.  This allows everyone to learn more about you and your business before and between meetups.  We have a 5-minute video for doing your Wisconsin Business Owners Meetup Member Profile at https://www.meetup.com/wisconsin-business-owners/messages/boards/thread/49868680

A few of our Members, great advocates of helping others create stronger networking connections

There are a number of ways to create personalized, memorable and stronger networking connections.  Ninety percent of success is showing up.  Ninety percent of the remainder is your attitude once you show up!

5 ways to create stronger networking connections

From TED at Work:

In a tech-obsessed culture, it can be difficult to build genuine relationships with people, especially in the workplace. Robert Reffkin shares his tips and tricks for establishing authentic connections on the job.

Robert Reffkin is on a mission to help everyone find their place in the world.

Why you should listen

Robert Reffkin was inspired to enter the world of real estate by his mother, Ruth, a longtime agent who now proudly works at Compass, the real estate company Reffkin cofounded in 2012. After completing a bachelor’s at Columbia University in less than three years, Reffkin worked at McKinsey, Goldman Sachs and as a Fellow in the White House before returning to Columbia for his MBA. He ran 50 marathons in 50 states to raise $1 million dollars for charities — including for New York Needs You, the non-profit he founded to serve young people living below the poverty line who are the first in their families to go to college. Reffkin lives in Tribeca with his wife Benis and their three children.

WisOwners Lunch & Learn: Plan Your Brand

Plan Your Brand

by Ashley Sebaaly

Do you have a strong, consistent brand that is attracting new customers?

Are you in love with your branding and are proud to show it off to any new prospect and your audience?

Let’s pretend your business is a person. Does your current branding reflect your business’ personality?

Branding can rise or ruin any business. Regardless if you offer a service or a product, work remote or at an office, been in the game for decades or a start-up; branding is important for every business owner.

From my past and current experiences in corporate and entrepreneurship, I will guide you to create a strong, consistent brand that not only you will fall in love with but can use to attract new customers and grow your business.

We all have ups and downs in entrepreneurship. It is important to take a step back and look at the fundamentals of our own business. During this presentation, we will dive deep beyond the pretty, stylistic elements and get into the nuts and bolts of branding. All attendees will be provided with their very own Plan Your Brand Checklist during the presentation.

If you are interested in attracting new customers and growing your business, then join us to learn how to create a strong, consistent brand.

AI & Voice Assistants: The Future of Marketing – February 22

AI & Voice Assistants: The Future of Marketing
By Nick Myers

-What exactly is AI and how does it work?
-How is voice technology reshaping how brands engage with customers?
-How will voice assistants change the way we search for information and review content?

It is almost impossible to not have heard about how AI and voice assistant tech is/will be changing everything. The way that organizations and businesses communicate and interact with their customers is entering a new paradigm shift. Organizations must be aware and learn how to adapt to these rapid advances in technology to go where their customers will ultimately be going; voice and the internet.

During our time together, I’ll share a variety of things. First, I will cover a high-level overview of what makes AI tick, and how it ultimately is responsible for voice assistant tech. I will also go over some case studies of different organizations that have used voice technology to connect with their customers, and how organizations can expect the way that they interact with their audiences to substantially change.

If you are interested in the future of one-to-one customer engagement, then join us and learn what AI and voice assistant tech will mean for your business.
