The Value of Customer Referrals

21 Nov

We know that positive customer word of mouth (in person or electronically) can have a dramatic impact on firm performance.

Here is a nice infographic by Forewards, a specialist in customer referrals for small firms:

“If your business is like most other retailers, online or bricks-and-mortar, you probably rely on the holiday rush to play a huge part of your success every year. This year, in particular, the National Retail Federation (NRF) is forecasting that in the United States retail sales as a whole will be well over $600B this holiday season. That’s a pretty huge opportunity. No doubt, a good portion of those sales will happen online as well. This begs the question. Is your online store ready for the holiday rush?

Looking for Something to Do at Lunch? Here’s an Infographic to Give You at Least One Good Chuckle

10 Nov

In our lives and at work, we are often under a lot of pressure and feel stressed. How can we relieve these feelings — at least for a little while?

Try looking at this clever infographic from the UK’s Chair Office:

“Lunch breaks are the savior of the working day. For one wonderful hour every day, we can stop thinking about deadlines and targets, and use the time instead to grab a bite to eat, read some news, and watch funny videos about cats on YouTube (guilty!). So, with that in mind, we’re encouraging  you to make the most of your lunch break this week – and what better way to do that then by breaking a world record?”

This infographic is LOL for me. How about you? :-)

It’s Tough Being a B2B Sales Rep

2 Nov

One of the most critical and important employees in many firms — especially B2B companies — is the sales representative. Unfortunately, some firms do not appreciate or recognize all of the issues that may make their sales rep jobs especially challenging.

As reported by Anum Hussain for HupSpot:

“Sales reps have a lot of responsibilities. Along with selling — which is, of course, what they were hired to do — they’re also expected to spend time researching accounts, generating leads, attending meetings, plugging away at administrative tasks, and so on. Where does staying on top of marketing materials fit in? As a former member of HubSpot’s content team, I know the hard work that goes into creating valuable offers and then distributing them to sales teams with talking points, sharable tweets, and so on. But there are so many hours in a salesperson’s day, and it can be really hard to keep up with the content. As a result, over 40% of marketing materials don’t end up getting used by B2B sales teams.”

The excellent infographic below from Qvidian (a cloud-based sales execution solutions provider) “walks through a day in the life of a modern B2B sales rep, highlighting the challenges that pop up along the way.”
