A Secret Tip for Prosecpting via Email

I's like to make a long story short, however that may not be the case with this blog. I figure it out as I continue to write. A few days ago I had a lead come in for a production copier. When I opened the lead I saw that the person requesting information was from my home town. Since my home town is small I knew exactly where he lived or worked. It was a town house complex and I thought he might be running the business from that location, but production print? Thinking that was not possible.

This Week in the Copier Industry 15 Years Ago (Last Week of January 2004)

This week and last week have been a tough go for me. Packing everything into the end of 2019 and getting the flu right before Christmas has taken it's toll for orders in January. Thank goodness quarters are 3 months! I had a great pipeline for January, however almost I couldn't get much of it to move. Okay so I have an even better pipeline for February thus it's time to make things happen! Enjoy all of these threads from 15 years ago this week! Peerless Systems Announces Everest Family of...

This Week in the Copier Industry 10 Years Ago (Last Week of January 2010)

Prospecting never ends, it's the daily grind that we have a love hate relationship with. Some days are good while most are not that good, however if you continue prospecting you'll never find your pipeline dry or be on the unemployment line. Today I came up with an idea for crafting emails. Today I was prospecting very large clients via email. My idea worked! I love it when a plan comes together. If someone can tell me the location of the title picture, I'll give you a free premium...

This Week in the Copier Industry 5 Years Ago (Last Week of January 2015)

It's Friday night and just a little past 10:30PM. The first thread of the post is a blog I wrote five years ago with my prediction for the imaging aka copier industry for 2016. Most of those predictions did not come true in 2016, however Ricoh did buy DocuWare last year, Mega dealers have substantially increase their geographic reach, and acquisitions of smaller office equipment dealers is running at a fever pace. If someone can tell me the location of the title picture, I'll give you a free...

Ask Me Anything

Last Thursday I launched our first installment of Ask Me Anything. For 2020 I was trying to think of something unique, different and not over played in the copier industry. In fact I know of no one or company that has offered this in our industry. Thus, why can't I be the first? In our first installment I was able to connect with a somewhat new rep in the industry. She was there to pick my brain on different ways and or rules of prospecting. At this point in my career I don't have to...

Wow that is surprising. I mean they need to provide replacement parts what do they expect someone to do if one was sold and gets broken.

When you say you tried to order it do you mean the edp code for the option or the part number? Like the part number for the tray is ...
