While you’ve probably heard about the 4 C’s of Diamonds – Cut-Carat-Clarity-Color – you’ve never heard of the 4 C’s for a more engaging website. Well, Alan’s going to fill you in on four things that will help your website work better for you, rather than against you. They’ll sound so simple, you’ll wonder why you’re not already doing them.
Come to this session and learn:
The 4 C’s and how to use them on any site
How to convert more of the traffic you’re already getting
Why you probably have too much on your site
Much has been taught about the sales process and how to persuade customers to sign on the “bottom line.” The more important lesson that is often lacking, however, is---how to deliver the type of experience your customers expect and demand once they’ve committed to you and your service or product. It is no longer enough for any business to rely solely on the delivery of basic customer service to build a loyal customer base. Customers want and expect an extraordinary "WOW!" experience, as well.
During Ron’s Presentation You’ll Learn:
Why customers will pay more for a product or service from businesses that provide a better experience
Valuable secrets to making emotional connections that produce customer loyalty
Simple steps to differentiating your business from the competition, eliminating the need to compete on price.
Effective ways to measure the experience and verify that your customers are feeling the “WOW!”
How personalizing the client experience leads to increased sales, referrals and profits.
Do you discount or negotiate? – hint: they’re not the same thing. Whether it’s in-season and off-season pricing, special sales or throwing something in to make the deal, there are many ways you can offer incentives… but should you?
Here’s what you’ll learn:
Whether you should offer incentives
How to preserve the value
The difference between price and value.

It would be so much easier if they would just pick up the phone and call you, wouldn’t it? But these days that’s not happening very much. Do you know why? Does it really matter why? You’ve always had to adapt to how your prospect’s preferences, not the other way around. In this session, Alan will walk you through the ins and outs of communicating with today’s prospects.
Here’s what you’ll learn:
Why they won’t call you
How to have a real conversation via email or text
How to handle price inquiries
and… time permitting, Alan will share some real email examples – the good, bad and terrible!
