gscoachThere are 4 Pillars to a stable, sustainable, scalable, profitable business. Our friend, George Sierchio, who did a very well received presentation on this material for SMBTN at SMB Nation this year has now laid it all out for you in a quick Ebook he is giving away for absolutely nothing to SMBTN members.

A taste of what you’ll learn:

  • Positioning your company as the "go to" people to create effective marketing, shorten sales cycles, make a well deserved profit and stop leaving tons of money on the table with each client.
  • Laser targeting the correct audience to eliminate wasted marketing time and dollars.
  • Understand what and how processes and systems are keys to profitability and productivity.
  • Get the real skinny on what pricing services and products in any business model is all about and how to go about doing it the right way to make sure you will never lose money on a deal.
  • Learn how profits are properly calculated and what they mean to your business BESIDES deserved cash in your pocket.
  • Realize how all 4 Pillars work together and why a weak or missing Pillar can put a low ceiling on your company’s growth potential, keep it on shaky versus stable, and outright kill your business instead of maximizing profitability.
  • Plus a little extra item at the end that you will love…

The most meat you have ever seen in 30 pages… for absolutely nothing.

Speakeasy is currently offering 2 months free for your customers and double commissions to you for a limited time when you sell our business Ethernet out of select CO’s.  We recently asked our vendor to light up more CO’s with business class Ethernet and they lit up 15 CO’s across the US.  Now we need to sell as many circuits out of those CO’s as possible by the end of the month.  The CO’s are listed below, if you have any customers needing a new connection in any of these areas, please e-mail Scott Goddard (our Speakeasy rep) or call him at 866-306-3001 with the address and he will qualify the location to ensure they are eligible for service and this promotion.

Business Class Ethernet is a very easy sell as it is a full duplex internet connection with the same SLAs as a T1 for much lower pricing per Meg, for instance our 3/3 Mbps circuit starts at $380 a month.  Pricing and more details about the service can be found in the order form attached.  We can also offer dynamic voice via SIP Trunks, Dial tone or VoIP over these connections which could save your customers money on phone services.   

If you  haven’t yet sold any Speakeasy Internet or VOIP service, I encourage you to take a look at it. Our program with Speakeasy offers SMBTN Business Members a recurring 10% monthly commission on all Speakeasy products for the duration of service. Some SMBTN members are making more than $8000 per year on these commissions alone!

Don’t forget to send Karl your favorite “duckie” pictures and take this opportunity to enhance your knowledge of the SMB IT business by picking up one of the many great books offered by SMB Books, the official bookstore of the SMB Technology Network. Remember, all SMBTN members save 10% on purchases from SMB Books every day. Good Luck!

From Karl’s blog:

It begins.

I’ve recieved a few duck pictures.

We gave away almost a thousand rubber duckies at SMB Nation.

Now come the pictures.

This lovely duck found a place to swim — in someone’s beer!

Cell phones are great.

Do you have a better duck picture? Did you attend SMB Nation and come away with a duck?

Well, we want to know what the far-flung flock is up to. We have now disseminated ducks to several continents.

Please join our duck photo contest — and win big at SMB Books!

The rules are simple:

1) You send me a picture of your rubber ducky. Karlp@greatlittlebook.com. You can be in the picture. The duck can be doing whatever turns you on.

2) I’ll send you a coupon code good for $10 USD off any purchase of $20 or more at SMBBooks.com.

3) Promotion ends November 30th, 2008.
Coupons are good through December 31st.

4) The big winner of the “Best Duck Photo” contest will receive an additional $50 Coupon, good for any purchase at SMB Books.

5) If you don’t have a duck, send an entertaining picture and we’ll include a duck with your order. While supplies last.

6) There is no cost to enter.

Good Luck!

– – – –

Fine Print:

Photos will be judged by whoever is walking by the hallway on the last day of the contest.

In the event of a tie, the two winners will be flown to Amsterdam for a night on the town with their entire staff, all expenses paid.

We do not anticipate a tie.

🙂

5000 Reasons to Sell Speakeasy Hosted VOIP October 29, 2008

If you haven’t yet taken a look at Speakeasy’s hosted voice-over-ip telephone system, I strongly encourage you to do so before the end of the year. Why is that? Well, SMBTN and Speakeasy are currently running an exclusive promotion for our business members that will result in one member earning an extra $5000 this year. For each new Speakeasy VOIP deal sold, you earn a one time $250 commission, receive 10% comission on customer billing revenues each month (until service is cancelled) and are entered into a drawing for the $5000 SMBTN/Speakeasy VOIP promotion. Each time you sell a deal, you are entered into the drawing again, so your chances of winning improve with each deal sold.

SMBTN Business Members are already making hundreds of dollars each month in recurring revenue on Speakeasy DSL, T1 and VOIP services. It is a great insulator to the recent issues with the economy. As a Speakeasy reseller, you are also entitled to discounts of up to 50% on DSL, T1 and VOIP services for your business. Not a bad way to cut costs and “eat your own dog food” at the same time.

Want more information about this opportunity, contact MemberServices@SMBTN.org or (888) GO-SMBTN and we will put you in touch with our Speakeasy representative.
