New Media Marketing
We have seen huge changes in the sales & marketing process over the years. It started with relationship selling, then moved on to solution selling. Following this was process selling….but the internet changed all that.
Now the buyer is in control, they rarely have time for relationships, already know our product, services and costs, so don’t need us to give them a solution.
They also shy away from process step by step selling as they already know what they need, when they need it and where they can find it.
We need to keep doing what has always made us successful and also adapt to the new and exciting marketing opportunities available on the internet.
This session will explore the science of using the internet to connect with existing & future clients, create brand awareness and use the latest tools, software and technology to put you ahead of the competitors and be seen as leaders in your field.
It will share ‘attraction marketing’ strategies to build your company brand, drive traffic to your website, dominate Google and share the strategies of successful companies that are using ‘new media marketing’ successfully.
You can learn new, low-cost strategies for boosting your business with the minimum of effort and at the minimum of risk.
These strategies are proven to work but rarely used because few businesses are even aware of them.
This a totally practical keynote and delegates will leave with many ideas that they can apply to their business immediately.

You can’t sell a Porsche if you cycle to work – Getting the Sale
We have seen huge changes in the sales process over the years. It started with relationship selling, then moved on to solution selling. Following this was process selling….but the internet changed all that.
Now the buyer is in control, they rarely have time for relationships, already know our product, services and costs, so don’t need us to give them a solution. They also shy away from process step by step selling as they already know what they need, when they need it and where they can find it.
If we are still using sales methods of 15 years ago, we will be missing many opportunities.
Organization’s now have three sales forces:
The traditional sales force – they need to be versed in new sales techniques, understanding the psychology of buying (rather than selling) and moving from left brain to right brain sales strategies.
They also need to be well versed with the latest opportunities of finding clients, including LinkedIn, Advanced Google searches and Twitter.
The unrecognized sales force – this is everyone in your organization who believes that they are not in sales, yet interact with clients daily.
By developing a customer rather than operational focus and giving them the correct skills, you will have more ‘sticky’ customers that will stay with your organization because of the superior service
The unseen sales force – these are the potential clients that you don’t even know are looking for what you can offer. If you are not on the first page of Google (for a search term, not your company name), don’t feature prominently on LinkedIn and are not having conversations on the social media channels where your clients ‘hang out’, you will be missing massive opportunities.
Smart companies are now using advanced online strategies like ‘remarketing’ and ‘embedded pixels’ with potential clients that have visited their website.
This presentation shares strategies and real life case studies of the successful companies that have adopted the new sales world and what your company could do to optimize your sales opportunities.
Managing Disruptive Change Objectives
The world is changing and so is the way we do business.
We need to keep pace with disruptive change and how to adapt to the new and exciting opportunities available by implementing practical strategies.
This keynote will explore the challenges and opportunities facing businesses right now.
This a totally practical session and delegates will leave with many ideas that they can apply to their business immediately.
Frank Furness – Sales Technology keynote/workshop equips participants with practical tools and techniques to enable them to discover the disruptive changes happening in business. They include:-
• Offshoring & Outsourcing
What will be covered:
Cultural: The world has become more global. Companies now have staff, customers and suppliers from different countries with different cultural differences. What do your employees need to understand to develop win-win relationships?
Generational: there are now 4 generations working together, all connecting in different ways. They have differences in work patterns, loyalty and motivation. What does your organisation need to do to harness and adapt to get the best out of all these generations?
Technology: What are the key emerging technologies, and how are they being used inside and outside your industry, company, and region to create advantages? Your business can now dominate Google, have its own online TV station and build its brand with the resources available, many free.
Business Models: Are there new business models emerging that you can adopt or adapt to deliver radical improvements in the way you and others do business? Will these improvements drive profitable growth by creating proprietary advantages in the way you do business? How can you become the ‘go to’ business in your industry and create ‘sticky’ clients by differentiation and service?
Globalization: What’s happening in another part of the world that you could adopt or adapt in your environment? What are the proprietary advantages that you have based on your access to people, information, materials, or capital? Are new markets or businesses emerging in other parts of the world that create opportunities or threats?
Offshoring and Outsourcing: Are there opportunities to create value by outsourcing or offshoring activities that you currently perform inside your organization. How and where the best places to outsource are and the benefits to your organization?
