New Technologies, Old Concepts

Sure, life was simpler before the computer age. It seems like just yesterday you could flip between your three television stations and be content. You could walk to the mailbox to get your daily mail. The only Spam we knew of came in a little tin. If you were unsure of who to call, you simply grabbed the yellow pages.

Now, each day we wake up with more choices, more options and more noise. Things are certainly busier, but are they better? That may not be the right question to ask. It is not helpful for a business to bury its head in the sand and long for simpler times.

A Guide to Finding Sales Professionals

It finally happened–you fired the toxic salesperson that has been a drain on your company for so long. But now you are the one running all of the sales calls in addition to running your business.

In a previous article (“Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You Are,” June 2011), I discussed  how to find good candidates, but suggested that the interview process could take hours. How are you going to find the time? You ran an ad on Career Builder and Monster and have a ton of resumes, but now what?

When Discounts Are Necessary

Some dealers build discounts into their marketing strategies and expect a discount in every presentation. Others have a strict no-discount policy. Let’s take a look at how to get the most out of those situations in which a discount is necessary.
