Creating Customer Demand For Your Services

February 26, 2008 by Scott Faver
This article and concepts are dedicated to Michael Port, author of Book Yourself Solid. I saw Michael in October and his ideas that have helped my pitch, sales process and bottom line.Studio 54 has a red velvet rope at the door. Hopeful guests line up to get in but not all make it through the front door. And not just anyone can attend. Is anyone with a check book your client? Or are you selective about who is your client? Three weekends. Three Bar Mitzvahs. Two were great. One was absolutely fabulous! All three were from the same Temple. All three had a similar make-up of guests including many of the same guests. So what made the difference? The first two Mitzvahs had clients with specific needs that I fulfilled, but limited their entertainment options. The fabulous event, that had everyone dancing, par...

By The Numbers

February 10, 2008 by Scott Faver
This week I have a clever way to entice multiple sets of guests to participate in a series games, dances or other activities. During cocktails/dinner visit the tables, be sociable, say hello, take requests, get a feel for the audience as a whole, and check the pulse of certain tables, and specific guests. It's the usual DJ cocktail/dinner banter.At each table ask if anyone has their business card with them. Swap cards with the individual. If there are multiple offers, take all the cards you like, but decide to use only one card from each table for this activity. If there are no cards at the table that's OK - just casually get the name of a person at the table who you think is outgoing. Take notes as you go from table to table. Use the backs of the business cards or a place on your event notes. Once you ... [read more]

Can Paid RSVPs Improve Attendance?

January 26, 2008 by Scott Faver
Poor attendance at one of your December Holiday Parties? Lackluster audience? No prizes to give away due to a limited budget? Here is one solution that is guaranteed to inspire your corporate clients to hire you again this year!Have the H.R. Department send invitations with an R.S.V.P. that explains this year the company will request $5.00 for each R.S.V.P. And then return the $5.00 when they check in at the party. At the check in they will receive their drink tickets, bonuses, and their $5.00 back. Or, they can choose to put their $5.00 into the evening drawing. Based on the number of employees who attend and the number who say, "Keep the $5.00", which is most of them, 100 guests equals $500.00. 300 guests equals $1,500.00! Depending on the amount, the holiday committee will decide to split the amount ... [read more]

“Wetting” Clients’ Appetizer For Your Service – The Drip

January 26, 2008 by Scott Faver
This week it's all about the drip. A marketing drip that is. When a client calls, ideally you want to schedule an appointment. But often clients want to take it one step at a time. So, collect as much contact information as they are willing to share. Then be prepared to send them something via mail, email, fax... And not just one item but lots of stuff. Not all at once of course but a bit, drip, at a time. Each marketing piece should stand alone, on it's own merits, but layer ideas about your services and entice them to call back and schedule an appointment with you. Our tagline is - You have the dream... We make it happen! Dream is the emotional word. Facts tell, emotions sell. So we use a D.R.E.A.M. acronym. Dramatic, Romance, Emotion, Ambiance, Memorable. We have an Email and Mail drip campaign that ... [read more]
