All the SEO in the world, all the advertising and marketing that you could ever do, all the networking and socializing to put yourself out there and make your phone ring will have little real value to your business if you don’t learn how to sell yourself, your product and your services to those who call.
As a REACH Magazine advertising sales executive with over 20 years experience my sales consultation delves into more than the cost of my advertising program and where to target your advertising dollars. Many times I work with businesses to help them fine tune other aspects of their business. Whether it is sales, how the phones are answered, or other day-to-day concerns, we will sometimes cover them in discussions to improve their business and help their business grow. If I get the phone to ring and it falls apart from there, I lose my client. As an experienced marketing and advertising executive I know that customer service in my business does not stop with the sale of an ad.
