The Harder I work the Luckier I Get

cases present a whole new idea to the customer. A few years ago, when Ricoh had just entered the printer market and we had a second generation of digital copiers. I had a customer who was in need of a digital copier. They wanted a system that would print and copy @ 85 ppm! We (Ricoh) did not have a digital 85ppm at the time. I could sense the customer being uneasy with my 60 ppm system. I took a chance and asked the customer how many documents they copied off the glass. My customer was not sure

If I Were King of My Sales Department

Since, I've had so much time in the trenches, I've seen many sales people, and sales managers come and go. I understand that many Sales Managers are some times handicapped with what they can and can't do. But, If I were King and I had carte blanche, here's what I would do to increase sales, and moral. 1)If I were the Sales Manager, I would STOP selling. I would divide all of my accounts amongst my reps. You can't be an great Sales Manager and a great sales person. It's not going to happen. 2) I

Great post! 11. Assign a rep a topic (round robin) to present at the next weekly sales meeting. Rules- show the team a new selling feature / function / solution, present it as you would to a client, and keep it short ( 5 minutes max) sweet. After presenting, stand and receive constructive criticism from the rest of the team. Keep it fun and informative- but don't take it the task lightly. This will improve product knowledge, research skills, and presentation skills.

Re: Sold MY First Xante Ricoh Envelope Press today

One was sold from our office. They are having some trouble with feeding so xante is sending them another print engine. I think it looks like a good system and have not read anything bad about them. We have a customer with another machine from us who bought a xante from someone else and they love it.

I like 11.!! I even like the rules better. Your thread also reminded me to add this. 12. Reps, especially new reps would be in charge of training their customers on how to use the system. At first, they would travel with the solutions engineer or (me)and watch them train the customer on how to print, copy and scan.
