NEW ALPS PROGRAMS ARE LAUNCHING OCTOBER 12TH!
Book More Business! Sales Strategies For Long-Term Growth
In order to survive…and thrive, speakers need to view themselves as proactive business owners first. Working “in” and “on” one’s speaking business is not one and the same. Whether you hire outside salespeople, or you are operating as a solopreneur, you need to implement a process to acquire new business, maintain a pipeline of opportunities and stay connected to your clients who have hired you previously. Do you have systems in place to track leads and promote your services? Can you clearly articulate your value proposition? Are you satisfied with your negotiation and closing skills? Understanding the fundamentals required to grow your business is essential. In the absence of a sales system and/or support staff, your business is effectively “closed” every time you are on the road. This is your opportunity to learn best sales practices from your fellow ALPS participants and commit to achieving the results you desire.
Benefits of joining:
- Apply consistent sales strategies to secure more business with greater ease
- Get re-energized as you move past buyer obstacles toward higher levels of profitability
- Gain powerful insights (and “need to hear” truths) from your peers and start closing more sales…TODAY
From Author to Marketer! How to Publicize and Promote Your Published or Self-Published Book
As you bask in the afterglow of finishing your book, you realize that the next critical step is to get the word out to the world about your literary masterpiece! Books do not simply “sell themselves”. Book marketing is all about strategy. Knowing where to start once the writing process has concluded can be overwhelming. If you have just completed the task of writing your book, joining this ALPS groups is perfect timing. As you connect with fellow authors, you will discover many avenues available to effectively market your book. The CAPS community is fortunate to have many successful authors. Your ALPS group may decide to have a guest author join in on a Zoom call to share his or her experience, or you might invite a publicist on a call to provide insights and ideas on topics such as press releases, media appearances, book signings, etc. Of course, your goal is to attract interest in your book and generate sales. Whether you are a first-time author or a seasoned book “pro”, your ALPS book “brain trust” will prove to be an outstanding experience as you contribute and learn from each other.
Benefits of joining:
- Learn how to create momentum for your book with less stress
- Tap into the collective wisdom of your peers with ideas to promote your book
- Meet your new book marketing accountability team and celebrate your success!
NOTE: This ALPS group is for members who have COMPLETED their book or are in the very last stages of writing/editing. If you aren’t ready, don’t worry. This program will be repeated!
