    and then and c be compelled by your ad or letter to take action with you The Challenge One of our clients who operate in the security sector faced exactly this dilemma compounded by the fact that they provided services and products across a wide range of applications and markets These range from building anti terrorist bomb proof safe rooms for embassies to fitting security shutters in retail outlets and access control systems in office blocks and other security sensitive buildings Their 1 000 was going to have to be spread pretty thin The Solution After discussion and much thought their Business Builder Programme advisor recommended that the fastest way for the client to reach multiple target audiences at a time when they actually had a need for the solutions on offer was to implement an online marketing strategy This would combine some new web pages with compelling copy and Google AdWords We started by adding new product specific pages to the website Then we created compelling copy and content to each new product page to ensure that each page delivered genuinely valuable information spelt out the specific benefits of their products and contained multiple calls to action Then we set about creating a carefully targeted Pay Per Click advertising system using Google s AdWords programme The Pay Per Click advertising was divided into Campaigns on specific areas such as blast proofing security shutters and access control and further sub divided into Ad Groups that allowed us to finely target specific ads at particular searchers by keyword groups By doing this we knew that we could have the client s online ads appear in front of people who were looking to buy what they were selling right there and then And they could do this on a very small daily budget spreading the 1 000 over many months which allowed plenty of opportunity for testing analysis and fine tuning The Outcome After 6 months during which we carefully monitored and updated the AdWords campaigns the client reported the following results Total Spend on Pay Per Click 908 Access Control Contracts Won 120 000 Security Shutters Contracts Won 34 000 Blast Protection Contracts Won 180 000 Total Return on Pay Per Click Spend 334 000 at 23 margin And remember that s not total business that s contracts specifically attributed to enquiries generated by the Pay Per Click ads That 908 might have secured them one inside front cover ad in a prestigious magazine or a single letter to 1000 cold leads But the chances of it generating that kind of return on investment through any other medium are tiny Especially as they would have been denied the opportunity to test measure and refine vital to getting great results And best of all the results were completely measurable In tough times this approach has proven time and time again to be one of the most effective especially when the budget is small While there are no guarantees if you re trying

    not a price shopper for fuel I can t even tell you which one is the cheapest I just appreciate being treated with some dignity I m not yet friends with the owner of the new garage But I ve a feeling I will be one day And one day I ll ask about his Porsche funny coincidence that he can afford such a nice car and his business It ll be interesting I changed garage because of a smile the absence of a challenge and despite having to go out of my way to get there Now I m sure that the people who persisted in challenging me for years did that because some people do pay for an item and try to dodge paying for the fuel or pay for the fuel and try not to pay for the goods from the shop But is treating everyone like a potential offender the way to win people over Clearly not I have transferred my allegiance to a new garage all because of a smile and some simple thoughtfulness Gatekeepers on Steroids This reminded me of what is wrong with the way the vast majority of businesses answer the phone Most people answering the phone in most businesses are like gatekeepers on steroids the person answering the phone is poised to repel the sales call They and the business have become a sales call repelling machine a bit like my old friends at the garage who had become shop lifting and fuel theft prevention machines and as a result treat everyone tersely and with initial suspicion They are answering the phone with completely the wrong posture they are ready to launch a vigorous defence and are coiled to repel invaders Result Terse call handling Yet you can often see the contrast when the person answering the phone recognises the caller as a client and instantly changes from a terse sales call repelling machine into a warm and friendly person It s not that we can t be great at answering the phone the problem is that we often don t become warm and friendly until we have established that we are not dealing with a sales call Wrong wrong wrong With the wrong posture you can lose prospects in the first few seconds of the call Two basic rules to help frontline people to be GREAT on the phone It s been said many times that the telephone is the shop window to your business And it s true people make a decision about you and whether they re going to deal with you in the first few seconds on the phone Telephone professionalism absolutely is common sense but then as they say common sense isn t always that common Telephone professionalism starts even before you pick up the phone RULE 1 Smile widely before you pick up the phone Sounds too simple to even mention doesn t it But smiling as you pick up the phone radiates warmth and
