What IT Company Logos Should I Have On My Dealership's Website?

The New Way to Win More Deals: Sales and Marketing as Co-Creators of Value

Why do sales people win? Until recently, the primary points of differentiation for companies have been based on two factors:

  • We provide great products
  • We back them up with great service

While that may be true, the challenge is that these provide little differentiation in a marketplace where the great product you sell can be sourced from dozens of vendors online. And while great service is rare, the reality is that there are many companies that provide great service.

In order to win sales, we need to differentiate ourselves. How do we do that? We have to bring value beyond the product and service. 

Today's Buyer: What Are They Thinking?

You’ve probably heard this before: a CEB study revealed that buyers are 70% towards making a decision before they want to talk with a sales rep.

Whether you believe the number is that high given the product or service that you sell, unless there is a glaring emergency to make a decision to fix something that stops working, buyers go through a gradual process before reaching out to talk with a rep.

So, how can you become part of that process to increase your chance of winning? I’ll share a few ideas in a second post. Today, let’s get inside our buyers’ heads and see what they’re thinking before they pick up the phone or fill out a contact form.

Are You Ready for Your Closeup? Create Great Marketing Videos for Your Business With These Timeless Tips

If you've got a smart phone, you've got all the recording equipment you need.

I'm a late convert to video.

I like words. I like to read. When I watch a screen, I want to be entertained with a Saints win, a TV show, or a movie.

One of the critical rules in writing is to “kill your babies.” That means that the witty bit of prose you love that doesn't help advance your point – delete.

The same rule applies to marketing – you have to remove yourself from your personal likes and dislikes and figure out what works for the audience you want to reach.

A quick look at your social media feed – Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn – will show more video this year than last year.

Video creates engagement. It's personal.

A Decade of Hashtags - Social Media Isn’t a Fad

#StillThinkItsJustAFad??? 


Turning 10 is a major life step.
Double digits. Almost a grown up.
Fourth grade, here you come.


When was the last time you saw a fad celebrate it’s tenth birthday? I’m not talking about bell bottoms coming back into style, or wearing flannel shirts with dresses. I’m talking about, a fad lasting long enough to reach ten the first time around. Silly bands, those crazy rubber bands kids were wearing, fidget spinners, fads are everywhere, and a new one pops up almost as soon as an old one dies.


Fads don’t celebrate a 10th anniversary.

When you have claimed your Google My Business page your business/website can show up in a couple places.

What Younger Customers Want From a Service Provider

The older I get, the faster time slips by. Sometimes I wake up and realize things have changed. That’s how I felt when I read that the average age of a network administrator is 36 years old. Let that sink in for a minute. That means over half of the network administrators you serve were born after 1981. They all graduated from high school after 1999.

The Average Age of a Network Administrator is 36-What This Means For Your Copier Dealership

In doing research for a presentation I’m doing for a Copier Dealer Association's service manager’s meeting, I discovered a statistic that should make all of us pay attention: 36 is the average age of a network administrator according to a recent New York Times article. Yes, that’s the average age. That means there are many in their early thirties and late twenties.

What does this mean to your dealership? Even though the people sitting in the c-suite may be baby boomers coddling their 401K’s as they sail into retirement, the youngsters they have hired to manage their information technology are digital natives.
