Copier Proposals

Why I Spend Time on Linkedin Everyday

Just a short blog for everyone tonight. I'm doing updates to the site, listening to the Yankee game.  Thought this would be a neat short story about Linkedin.

I've always stated that as long as you work hard you never know what tomorrow will bring you.

For years and years I've spent at least 30-45 minutes a day on Linkedin. Whether it's giving congrats for a new job/position, posting links to this site, posting interesting links to other sites, sharing threads, and making sure I send everyone a "happy birthday" note.

It's just something I do. Recently, I heard a statement that it takes 21-28 days of doing something to make it a habit.  Guessing that's the same for athletes when they practice over and over to get that muscle memory.  Linkedin has become a daily part of my selling day, whether it's for the copiers that I sell or promoting the Print4Pay Hotel.  Yup, it's a habit now

Today was kinda busy, I was on the phone (hands free) when I received a call from outside of my area code. I thought it was just another telemarketer (did I just write that!), I answered the call and was pleasantly surprised.  It was one of my Linkedin contacts, and that person was in the market for a copier ASAP.  I stated that I would call back as soon as I got back to my office.

We did the call, defined the needs and the one requirement was that the copier was needed ASAP. Traditionally I don't send proposals, I will send the other docs because it can speed up the order process. In addition the client has all of the T's & C's. There was no time to visit the client, I was told to send the docs for a review.  About thirty minutes later I had the signed order docs in my email. WooHoo!

It wasn't a large order and wasn't a small one either.  But it was a net new account that directly came from Linkedin.

Just thought that was neat that hard work does pay-off and as long as you work hard you never know what tomorrow will bring you.

Top Ten Copier Proposals for December 2017

Yesterday I posted Top Ten Copier Proposals for January 2018. I don't have much time tonight, however please click that link and you'll read why I think seeing competitive proposals is key for keeping up with the latest pricing for hardware and cost per page maintenance agreements.

In addition to the pricing, the structure of the proposal is just as important as the pricing.  I've seen some proposals that I thought "WOW, that's a killer format". Thus I copied that format for my own quotes. Like I said you just never know what nuggets you can find.

To view these quotes you'll need a Premium/VIP membership.  We're running a special right now and we have four Premium/VIP membership left for $99.  Our regular price is $119 annual cost.  The special for $99 is for a Lifetime Premium/VIP membership. We only have four left, so first come first serve. Send me an email if you're interested apost@p4photel.com

Top Ten Copier Proposals for January 2018

Proposals and quotes for end users. 

Canon ir5535iOur Print4Pay Hotel members contribute proposals and quotes that they've found in the field.  Many of you might say, "why do I need to see these"?  There are many reasons why viewing these proposals and quotes can be a treasure trove of information.

For starters the cost per page for black and color is always moving. Why didn't you get that last order? Was your maintenance and supply price to high?  Were you too low? Often clients take a back seat when your price is too low and opt in for a higher pricing because the believe they will have better support.

It's good to know to know as much as you can about your competition, in addition to knowing the T & C's on their contracts. It's also important to see how the competition is pricing their proposals and quotes.  Enjoy!

Konica Minolta Bizhub 951Pricing Proposal Award

Just thought I would put a few points out there with a recent State of Florida contract award for the Konica Minolta Bixhub 951.

For starters, I have no clue how many copiers are included in this award. It may be one or one hundred.  However, what we do have is the purchase/award price for the KonicaMinolta Bixhub 951 and a few accessories.

Those accessories include:

Paper feed unit

100 Sheet Stapler Finisher

ESP Power Filter

Professional Service Unit (not sure what that is)

Amazing

I still can't get my head around how service and supply pricing can be that low.  This quote for service and supply cost per page is the lowest I've seen in the last year.  As some say, the race to the bottom is here and I guess there's still a lot you can get for under a penny.

Oops, just saw it on the quote, it was for four devices on a 36 month lease. Almost two million pages over that time frame. 

If you're interested in seeing how low they can go, you can view the KonicaMinolta Bixhub 951 Award here.

Keep in mind that it might be a good idea to purchase a Premium Print4Pay Hotel Membership. BTW the pricing is ridiculous.

Top Ten Copier Quotes & Proposals for August 2017

Special thanx to all of those Print4Pay Hotel members that emailed me these quotes and proposals! 

I lost a potential order the other day.  I lost because I was not aware of what my competitors practices were with escalating service rates.  You know what I'm talking about, we all have them, we all don't speak about them unless the topic is brought up.  In this case, the topic was brought up and I answered with the appropriate response.  After obtaining a copy of the proposal, I found out why I lost.  Having that proposal will save my butt next time, because I will not forget and will be ready when I run up against the same competitor.

This is why you need to keep tabs on what others are doing in our industry. One little tidbit of data can save your ass and or get you the next deal.

Enjoy!

Nine Butt Kicking Copier Proposals for January 2017

HP LaserJet Enterprise flow MFP M830zWe had some really generous Print4Pay Hotel members send us some awesome copier proposals/quotes for the month of January. 

My Fav has to be the one for the Xerox Nuvera.

At times I will send these off to my VP of Sales.  Since he's really not in the field on a day to day basis, I feel it's my duty to let him know what's going on out there.  He can then make strategic decision with our sales efforts.  Believe me, having the ability to see these quotes and to get a sense of where the market is invaluable data.
