Blogging for fun and profit.
Blogs are a great way to get your message across on the internet and have it published almost immediately. It is the ideal way to prodide information, education and if done well, can creat wealth and multiple sources of income for you.
For your blog to be effective you need to ensure that it either solves someones problems, removes their pain or increases their pleasure. To me, it is the perfect online selling tool that will drive business, leads and sales. I have found that the best way of having an effective blog is to make it conversational, interesting with valuable content, but also engaging and involving the reader.

Making Money with Ezines
Ezines - Develop a 10 touch plan for all your existing clients (making contact at least 10 times a year). You can email, phone them, meet face to face or the easiest way is to have a newsletter. Whether it is a hard copy or online newsletter, this is a great way to keep in touch. I avoided having an electronic newsletter (ezine) for ages. My first ezine resulted in 10 International bookings from people that I had never met as my newsletter was passed on to them by my other subscribers. With so many newsletters circulating, content is king and is going to be the one differentiator between getting your newsletter read or deleted.

What Leaders are Saying

Jonathan Gerber, Managing Director—American Express & Seekers Travel South Africa

 

Your very accessible style made the information you shared with our team intelligible and easy to assimilate, and we still talk about the incredibly ‘simple’ approach you adopt to what is often considered the complicated process of doing business. Not without the elements of fun, your presentation was well targeted and well received, and we thank you for your insight and for presenting your ideas in a way that each delegate believed that they could take back with them, and move towards personal and professional growth and success

Jonathan Gerber, Managing Director—American Express & Seekers Travel South Africa

Hans Poortvliet, Managing Director, HSMAI Nederland

 

While working on the details of our 2008 LEADERSHIP programme, Mr. Furness was suggested to us by various people. Were they ever right! After a brief, but very pleasant and ‘to the point’ telephone conversation, I was fully confident that Frank was definitely ‘our man’. Seen his extensive background in sales, we asked Mr. Furness to take care of the ‘HSMAI Leadership in Sales Event. Frank delivered that afternoon an upbeat, dynamic and cutting edge presentation on sales & marketing. Filled with humour, impressive facts, ‘speaking’ pictures and many, many practical ‘sales tools’. Afterwards he left the audience with several dedicated websites full of practical tools for their review and use. The feedback we got from our members was nothing less than superb! I therefore can only strongly advise any organization (looking for the ‘latest in sales & marketing’) to contact or even better: ‘secure’ Mr. Frank Furness for their programme.

Every time I sit in Frank's audience it’s like going to the bank - AND Making a Big Deposit. What do you need to learn to fatten your bank account?

Deborah Fox, Managing Director, Emerging Real Estate Ltd

 

A day of sales training with Frank Furness so inspired our sales team that six weeks on, and they are still enthusiastically employing his techniques.  Each sales person in the office has their goals pinned up in front of them and we have a huge poster in the office which says ‘Think Frank’.

Frank has changed the way we work – he has given us confidence to enjoy the sales pitch and to sell better and more effectively.

Ian Curran—MD THQ

 

Rome, - an offsite meeting with my reports -  heads of business from across the world, different nationalities, different backgrounds and different business areas. Frank conducted a half day session on day two of the three day meeting.
Frank is energised, motivated and engaging. There was no-one in the room who was not captivated by what he was saying. He had really prepared and tailored his material to fit into my required business outcomes. The whole morning was varied, interesting, moving, thought provoking and uplifting.
My team was left highly motivated for the business year ahead, driven, and armed with tools to help realise action plans. Testament to the impact of Frank’s session is that once back in the office, dealing with daily work issues, the team continues to pull on the resources and motivation gained from Frank.
I would highly recommend Frank – he is one of the best speakers I have ever had the opportunity to experience.

After many years in the sales industry, it has been highly refreshing to find a professional who can rekindle the fire in our sales force. Frank's professionalism and knowledge of sales in my opinion cannot be equaled and since his motivational talk, there has been a dramatic increase in our sales figures.
