Montreal Canadiens Jersey Tote Bag

mtl-jersey-tote-bag




Size – 14 inches x 14 inches x 14 inches with silk screen cresting.

Founded in 1909, the Canadiens are the longest continuously operating professional ice hockey team worldwide, and the only existing NHL club to predate the founding of the NHL.

Aren’t these cool looking – I only have a few left.

The Canadiens have won the Stanley Cup more times than any other franchise. They have won 24 championships, 22 of them since 1927, when NHL teams became the only ones to compete for the Stanley Cup.

The manufacturer are no longer producing these bags. Carry a piece of Le Bleu-Blanc-Rouge history around with you. Make a great Birthday or Christmas Gift.

Why Effective Marketing Isn’t One-Size Fits All

Today I am going to share with you the single most important piece of information that I used to take my business to the next level.

“One Size Fits All Doesn’t Work As A Marketing Strategy”

one-size-doesnt-fit-all

When I first started using email marketing to keep my customers engaged with my business I found that it gave my business a small boost but it didn’t quite do as well as I expected. I was getting my name out there and keeping it fresh in my prospect’s mind, but I was struggling to keep people subscribed to my email list. I was able to get people onto my list fairly easily, but keeping them as a subscriber long-term was a bit of a challenge.

My business, like 99% of all businesses, has a wide range of customers at various levels of success and their needs and interests are likewise different. I was using an email campaign that tried to fill the needs of everyone and as a result it was not very effective. Basically, one email would cater to my small businesses and the next would cover the needs of larger businesses.

What was happening was the emails for small businesses caused large businesses to unsubscribe and the emails for larger businesses caused the small business owners to unsubscribe. So you can see how it was a constant struggle trying to get new subscribers because of the customer turnover.

It wasn’t until I started segmenting my list and developing very specific campaigns that everything really clicked.

To have successful campaigns you really need to be able to

Get the Right Information to The Right People at The Right Time.

  • Lead growth and retention will go way up when all of your email marketing matches their needs
  • Increased revenue when your sales make sense to your customers
  • Increased trust as you can build a reputation of providing value and understanding their needs

In order to do this, you need to invest in a really good CRM/Autoresponder.

I shied away from making the investment for a while and went with a cheaper, basic autoresponder service. When I think back now, I would have achieved success so much sooner if I hadn’t been so focused on the cost instead of the benefits. The first year I switched to Infusionsoft and set up automated campaigns that segmented my mailing list and delivered the right information to the right people, my sales doubled. I know that these results were directly related to Infusionsoft because that was the only significant change I made to my business.

Being able to send the right information to the right people at the right time makes a world of difference. Sending relevant information and promotions to your leads is only possible when you have the ability to segment your email list through automated processes mean they move through your sales funnel easier and with greater speed.

Let me know if I can help you save time while making more money.

Thanks,

Rick

Each and every day many of us open our laptops and cell phones to find our inbox full of emails

And we owe it all to one man – Raymond Samuel Tomlinson.

Ray_Tomlinson1

Raymond, born April 23, 1941 in Amsterdam, New York passed away March 7 at his Lincoln, Massachusetts home at the age of 74.

Raymond is the creator of the “Email” way back in 1971.

1968 – Ray and BBN were hired bythe United States Defence Department to build the first Internet.

1971, Using ARPANET, the forerunner to the internet, Ray poineered network email by combining the SNDMSG and CPYNET programs. Which allowed messages to be sent to people on other computers. To do this he needed a symbol.

The @ symbol actually originated as far as 1884 on the American Underwood Typewriter. It was known as the “commercial a” commonly used back then by bookkeepers and accounts in ledgers. Example; 20 widgets @ 10 cents each.

Big Ticket Dashboard – 1 Click Marketing Plan Software

How to Point’n Click Your Way to Your Own Big Ticket Sales Machine

Hello,
Rick here.

Today I received an email from one of my mentors, Marlon Sanders.

Marlon was telling me a friend of his recently paid $30,000 for a 5-day training on how to sell big tickets.

I swear there is more info in Big Ticket Dashboard than in that 5-day training.

Another friend just paid $40,000 for Big Ticket Training.

Admittedly, Big Ticket Dashboard is advanced info.
If you’re scared of doing a webinar or talking to people on the phone, it’s not for you.

But the upside is this….Marlon’s friend who paid the $30,000 sold $22,000 within the 5 days of training
just by doing some phone calls at night.

Big Ticket Dashboard has 80% to 90% of what you’d get in these high-dollar trainings.

But it will cost you under $100.

Best wishes,

Rick

PS:  I have been using this for 6 months now.  There’s a lot of actionable info in it.

Hey Let’s Talk

Would You Like Me To Help Create a Strategic Plan Customized to Your Business That Will Bring in More Revenue and Customers Right Away? For Free!

As I mentioned in my email, I help owners in your industry attract more prospects and increase sales.

These days, business owners are really confused and overwhelmed.

They get approached constantly from salespeople who use a very traditional mainstream, visibility driven advertising and marketing offers that don’t live up to expectations.

More often than not, the end result is a ton of money wasted and opportunities vanished.

 

The main reasons why traditional marketing no longer works is;

1.The company did not learn what the business owner’s needs are.

2.The campaign design could not track results.

 

Which winds up being a hope marketing campaign. They HOPE it’s going to work…

This comes from my own experience being a business owner.

Everything I have learned from using traditional marketing tactics are wrong and no longer work effectively.

 

If I could show you how to increase your revenue 15% to 30% Would that be worth 30 minutes of your time?

 

The marketing I started using many years ago for my business is very different but extremely successful…

At the time, I had a large segment of new prospects coming into my sales funnel.

Who we’re not converting into customers as quick as they should.

I knew I was offering good products and services and felt the results should have been showing better sales conversions.

So I created a very responsive custom designed sales plan with great success.

 

I’ve gotten very good at working with owners to create sales funnels to suit their needs…

Which has created a positive and dramatic impact on their businesses.

So let me ask you;

Are you happy where your business is now?

Don’t need any more customers and sales?

Frankly, some clients do tell me that, and if so there is no reason to continue our conversation.

 

Or would you be interested in learning more?

With your permission I’m going to email you a few simple questions about your business.

Get an idea of what you do, what you want to accomplish, what you’re doing now for marketing and so forth.

Then I will review your answers and get back to you to set up a day and time on the phone for a 1 on 1 initial planning session and go over your business.

There’s no charge for this, and it only takes about a 30 minute phone call for us to do together.

So Let’s talk!
