#2: Create wonderfully enjoyable experiences

Are you catching the low-hanging fruit?

Are you using a tactical sales strategy to help grow your business or are you waiting for work to come to you?

If you rely solely on one-off emails or telesales to get new customers you shouldn’t be surprised if you’re finding it difficult to gain new business. Our statistics prove there is lots of work out there as many franchisees are proving. The truth is, the gold may just be a couple of feet away! Remember the story about the gold miners on the TTBO course?

Here’s how two existing franchisees have had success this week...

#9: Remain above the line at all times

An interesting start...

Glenn Hoy of our sales consultants, Time Associates, shares an interesting start to his week with us:

‘This Tuesday presented me with the opportunity to work with franchisee, Darren Plowman in creating different versions of the Sales Dashboard’ Glenn commented.

Darren Plowman commented, ‘It has really helped me to understand the Sales Dashboard and advantages of using them. By developing the separate dashboards for current schools and new business, as well as holiday courses, will help me to drive my business forward further and give me real life working targets to aim for.’

If you are planning some new sales campaigns to win business from new schools or more revenue from existing schools and want to see how the Sales Dashboard can help, feel free to get in touch with Glenn.

Glenn’s final words, ‘Thanks should go to Roger Pemberton of Action Coach for introducing this very helpful planning tool to Premier Education Group.’

Protecting your customers from cyber criminals

Following the recent headlines surrounding the Talk Talk cyber liability case and increasing reports of cyber-attacks, the need to implement effective data security measures is ever more paramount and could prevent your business from becoming the latest victim of a cybercrime.

You may handle considerable amounts of data about parents and children, often containing sensitive personal information, which makes you an ideal target for cyber criminals.
