Jun 15 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

Oftentimes, business owners do not want to be bothered by the nitty-gritty of running online marketing campaigns. That is why marketing consultants and service providers for businesses with internet presence are fast becoming popular.

How to Market Your Independent Telecom Business Consulting Services On-Line

Jun 14 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

How do you get more paying customers?

This is the single most often asked question of me, hundreds, if not thousands of times over the 35 + years of my telecom career beginning in 1964 in Canada, and USA.

More recently, over the past 5 years while building a full time internet marketing business on line, these are the kinds of questions that have dominated in spite of the information overload of our technological times.

->> How do you effectively implement all the things involved to successfully market your own independent telecom business online.

->> How do you decide when to stop marketing campaigns that are not producing specific profitable results.

->> How do you get more new clients , and keep them

If you have been around telecom, and on line business at all, you already know there are many books and services about marketing available, but you always find lots of disconnected information about the topic when you search for your answers.

Specifically when you search for information about independent telecom consulting, you find little information except sales pitches by “Telecom Consulting Companies” touting their service and often their real business “selling telecom products”

I may be wrong, but it appears that a lot of telecom professionals have ended up trading their corporate career for an affiliation with yet another corporation as a “independent contractor” at some enormous startup or ongoing fee, rather than creating an independent business for themselves.

That is understandable, after all you were running the show, and as an independent telecom consultant found yourself unwilling or unable to gather the necessary support you needed to run any kind of serious marketing program and run your business at the same time.

There were mailings to do, web sites to build, advertising to plan, and presentations to clients to attend to, as well as do the actual technical work that you excel at

Without support, running a profitable consulting business can actually absorb all those hours and days you had dreamed about for leisure time.

What is your most burning question about what it takes to succeed in marketing your own telecom consulting business?

A Different Spin on Consultative Selling

Jun 13 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

Consultative Selling and its cousin, SPIN selling, are newer generations of the “Needs Selling” of the 1960′s. They have been in vogue with salespeople for almost two decades – with good reason. In today’s business climate, Information Overload isn’t just a buzzword; people are overwhelmed with data. They may welcome assistance in tuning out the noise in order to tune into a viable solution to their problems. A concerned, helpful salesperson may understandably be embraced as an Advisor or Consultant.

The Consultative Selling Process appears well-suited to the needs and challenges of today’s customers. Yet, in my opinion, consultative selling is most often implemented in such a way that it’s merely a new name for the same old manipulative sales games.

Let’s start with nomenclature: A salesperson who refers to her- self as an Advisor or Consultant is essentially misrepresenting her true agenda – to earn a commission. A salesperson’s primary objective is NOT to ‘help’ her clients and customers- she wants to make money. If receiving money for her sales efforts were not possible, she would be doing some other kind of work.

Real consultants and advisors charge a fee for their advice. Good advisors make *their client’s* best interests paramount. How many salespeople frequently advise their clients not to buy their product or service, or to buy from their competitors?

By implication, advising encompasses full disclosure, including warnings about the ‘down’ sides of choosing an option. Most salespeople are very good at explaining the features and benefits of their products and services. How many salespeople disclose the detriments as well – without a prospect’s prompting? Those salespeople say that their job is to emphasize the positives. Some even acknowledge that they are telling “half-truths”. However, it is deceptive and unethical to “lie by omission”. For the typical salesperson, it’s just “part of the game.”

This same old sales game is often dressed up as “Probing for Problems and Solutions” in order to help the prospect. In reality, anything we sell must meet some of the prospect’s needs. It may be an explicit business need, such as reducing the volume of paperwork, or an executive’s implicit want, such as possessing the latest “must-have” gadget. There’s nothing wrong with selling something that someone wants to buy. However, it is deceptively manipulative to “probe for hidden problems” and “identify hidden pain” without disclosing your intentions, which are to *persuade* a prospect that your product or service will alleviate their newly discovered Pain. Furthermore, it is a very difficult and ineffective way to sell.

There is no probing for hidden needs in High Probability Selling. We won’t even give prospects an appointment if they merely know what their needs are, and are “really interested” in meeting with us. In High Probability Selling, we distinguish between Want and Need.

A small portion of the universe of businesses and/or people will need our product/service in the relatively near future. Those that want our product/service- right now- are High Probability Prospects. We will schedule appointments with them now.

Those who will want our product in the future are part of the viable prospect universe. Many of them will become High Probability Prospects in their own time, for their own reasons. The essential difference between Consultative Selling and High Probability Selling is that we don’t attempt to persuade, convince, or manipulate those prospects into Wanting. Selling that way almost always results in low closing averages. Although many may need what we’re selling, most will not buy until they decide they Want It Now. It’s not just semantics- a prospect either wants what we’re selling, or they don’t.

Another distinction between High Probability Selling and “consultative selling’” is Total Disclosure. In HPS, honesty and transparency are core tenets of the sales process. We trust and respect prospects, and require that prospects treat us with trust and respect as well. Practically speaking, we divulge the detriments as well as the benefits of our product/service. In turn, prospects must fully disclose their Wants, or requirements for doing business. At each step of the sales process, the prospect explicitly states their conditions for doing business, and agrees to purchase, if we can meet their requirements.

Ironically, salespeople who implement High Probability Selling usually act as advisors. Like a trusted advisor, High Probability salespeople practice total disclosure, divulging both the strengths and weaknesses of their offerings. Because we never pressure prospects into becoming buying customers, the selling process is relatively stress-free, as dealing with a trusted consultant should be.

What kind of salesperson are you? If you’re still pressuring and manipulating, this is probably reflected in your low closing rate. You may be playing the same old sales game while dressing yourself up as a Consultant. Maybe it’s time for you to get real about who you are and what you do.

How to Find an IT Consulting Company

Jun 12 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

Whether you need a major Web site overhaul, customized software or networking solutions, finding the right IT consulting company to handle your needs is key to producing the desired results and ultimately positively impacting your bottom line.

Finding a professional that delivers what they promise can sometimes feel like finding a needle in a haystack. If you are considering hiring an IT consulting company, conducting some background research can save you time and money in the long run.

First, it is a good idea to ask the consultant for multiple references and then be sure to call the references and follow up on them. Ask the references about the results they experienced and if the consultant was easy to work with. Also find out if they experienced any problems in dealing with the individual. If they have, ask for specific examples.

In many circumstances, it’s typically safer to work with someone that you sought out as opposed to someone that cold called you. While there are reputable consultants that engage in marketing and cold calling, most good consultants are typically too busy with referral business to cold call for new business.

Take the time to learn exactly what services the IT consultant is offering to you prior to seriously considering hiring them. Review proposals and contracts or agreements carefully, and be sure they spell out what services are included.

Any reputable IT consulting company will either have a consulting services agreement on hand or should not object to signing the contract you produce, once it is reviewed and agreed upon. IT consulting contracts are essential prior to entering into any type of business relationship with the company. This agreement will define the terms of the relationship between you and the consultant.

What it protects

IT consulting contracts and other consulting agreement contracts or statements of work, specifically define the terms of the working agreement and specify the work the contractor is to perform for your company. The contractor’s responsibilities to you are clearly outlined and payment terms are determined. Below are common provisions that are essential components of the contract as well as a general outline for what a statement of work should look like.

Agreement provisions:

* Scope of Services
* Price and Payment Terms
* Term and Termination
* Ownership of Intellectual Property
* Confidential Information
* Warranty and Disclaimer
* Limitation of Remedies
* Limitation of Liability
* Relation of Parties
* Employee Solicitation/Hiring
* Miscellaneous Provisions

General outline for statements of work:

* Preamble
* Project Background
* Scope
* Key Tasks and Milestones
* Project Deliverables
* Time and Cost Estimates
* Price and Payment
a. Invoices
b. Payment
* Project Organization and Personnel Requirements
* Supporting Documentation
* Expenses

Before hiring an IT consultant to provide services to one of the vital components of your business – your computer or your network – be sure to verify their credibility and have a solid contract in place. E-mails, oral agreements and other informal agreements will not provide you protection should the service not be delivered as promised.

You must keep in mind that their wisdom and experience will enable the cinema to sail through.

Guide to Washroom Design

Jun 04 2023 Published by admin under Uncategorized

This article will help you design your bathroom.

The first step will be to plan the style and design – similar to the kitchen,Guest Posting a nearby supplier will probably run off a computer-generated plan in accordance with the room’s specifications along with your certain needs.

If you’re adhering to the exact same layout, evaluate your bathroom suite carefully prior to going searching for a substitute so you know the newest items will physically fit.

Re-plumbing and re-wiring are going to propel the price up so stick with the current service points if possible – although this can be unavoidable if you desire to modify the position of the restroom suite.

First, choose the right spot for your bath or shower. If your loo is within your bathroom, make a decision where this may go and then place the washbasin.

After the fixtures are arranged you can work out how to operate the leftover place which often, in modern bathrooms, could be quite restricted. Some type of storage space, possibly cupboards or shelves – preferably both – is required for toiletries, cleaning products, bathroom rolls and also children’s bath toys. In case your bathroom is actually spacious you may even keep clean bathroom towels and also your linen basket in there.

Are you searching for Wash Basin Price? If yes, then check out the website of Aquant India which offers a wide range of bathroom products at reasonable prices. Their wide range of reasonably priced washbasins includes pedestal washbasins, corner washbasins, wall-mounted washbasins as well as tabletop washbasins. Check out now!

Picking out the bath and also basin may be a time-consuming job. Even though you’re not picking something like a jacuzzi or in house hot spa, baths may be found in almost all sizes and shapes – regular oblong, rolltop, corner, curved, larger at one end when compared to the other – as well as colours. Except if you desperately yearn for a specific shade it’s best to stay with white. It’s clean-looking, inoffensive plus will certainly go with any colour you choose to employ for paint and also decor.

Taps, as well, are available in a bewildering array of styles – pick a layout that will complement your bathroom.

Before you make your final decision on the restroom suite it truly is useful to examine your options along with your plumber to determine if there are any prospective snags with the styles you might have picked out.

Whether or not your window has got frosted glass ensure that you use a curtain or blind with a ‘blackout’ liner unless you want neighbours or passers-by watching the silhouette of you showering, washing or even worse.

While searching for reasonably priced Wash Basin I came across the website of Aquant India which provides the best looking washbasin at the most reasonable prices for more information you can visit the website. They also offer faucets and shower panels at reasonable prices. Check out their website now if you are also looking for the same.

On the subject of decor, make sure to make use of – or indicate, if someone else is doing the work – grout that is protected from heavy steam as well as water. Furthermore, opt for paint plus wallpapers that could stand up to heat as well as water vapour – try looking in the ever-expanding ‘kitchen and bathroom’ ranges.

Soft colours whiten a smaller washroom, especially one without having any natural daylight but it’s exciting to test out colour. And a big mirror across one wall, primarily the wall structure opposite the window, will certainly help make a small bathroom appear larger and lighter.

Floor coverings, too, are offered in almost all kinds of materials and also colour – but prevent carpet which will be unrealistic and unhygienic in a washroom. Vinyl, cork tiles or lino will be good choices – cosy underfoot along with easy to thoroughly clean. Nonetheless, if the actual area you decide on is bright always use a non-slip washable area rug for extra safety.

In the event that you’re setting up a shower area – possibly as an independent aspect or over the bath – examine the different forms before determining which to pick out. If perhaps you have great water pressure you could potentially go for a thermal shower that is connected straight to your heating system and also helps to keep the water temperature even.

An electric powered shower system heats up the water itself and is actually mostly employed over the bath. Power showers will certainly give you the ultimate shower experience, even if you will have reduced water pressure.

Choose a non-slip surface area in both bath plus shower. Check with your plumber that the drainage can take the amount of water your shower is actually producing – an overflowing shower tray may cause major difficulties.

Most importantly, the main thing to remember whenever redesigning your bathroom is – decide on a design that works for your own chosen lifestyle.
