How to Take Quality Care of Your People (Think: Your Champion)

Sales Funnel Series, Part 5

Take your small business to be the business “everyone keeps hearing about…”

Who are Your People?

  • Your people (they have decided to be your Super Fan)
  • They’ve been coined “your apostles” because they are out speaking the good word of you. We call them CHAMPIONS
  • They feel comfortable (They seek out new ways to) learn from you, be part of your group, or contribute to your cause.

You know you have a champion when…

  • Their spouse, close friends, and beauty shop ladies know you.  By name.
  • They cannot stop talking about you.  Everywhere.
  • The love and buy every, single thing you sell.
  • They volunteer to do more, buy more, or give you even more than what you asked of them.
  • The relationship between you and your champ is what we call “The Ultimate Win-Win.”

Why do your champions matter?

  • Organizations, businesses, and even political parties do not survive WITHOUT them.
  • Example: NFL with the Seahawks fans in freezing cold weather.
  • These are the lifeblood of your business.  Think of Cheers, “Norm…” walks into the room. 
  • McDonald’s shift and the old, curmudgeonly guys come in for morning coffee and pancakes. They know their menu better than you.

How do I influence my champions even more?

  • Figure out a way to be one-step ahead of their request. Keep them happy.
  • Example: NFL with the Seahawks fans in freezing cold weather.
  • These are the lifeblood of your business.  Think of Cheers, “Norm…” walks into the room. 
  • McDonald’s shift and the old guys come in for morning coffee and pancakes. They know their menu better than you.

Why are they so committed to me & my services?

  • They seek connection.  Find ways for these members to meet others like them.  (Membership group. MeetUp of members.)
  • They want status.  (For the Inner Circle of fans.  High paying customers… we offer this…)
  • They want access to you.  (NFL, meet the players day…with purchase of this & this…)
  • Find ways to have “elite club members only” events.  (Only season ticket holders get to attend the event…)
  • If you buy this package AND the membership bonus, you’ll receive FREE _________.

What else can I offer them?

  • Signed copies of your work (great for creators.)
  • An open house of your newly remodeled restaurant (by invite only of those reward members that have 5,000 points of more.)
  • Offer a new experience. 

How often should I connect with them?

  • Surprise them. 
  • Make it personal. Everyone knows a card is coming at the holidays.  I send a card 2-3 times a year in the off months.
  • Leave something that reminds you of them. 
  • Send them tickets to your exclusive event…
  • A simple thank you card for doing business with you.  Buy the staff lunch after your business with them.

 

How do I include them?

  • Something special…just for them.  Think everyone can buy tickets to a concert.
  • Few pay more for the up close seats.
  • They pay more for the backstage passes.
  • And your champions will pay a lot more for the “15-minute meet the band” before the show… (that comes only with  up close seats and backstage passes…)

So, How Do You Quickly Get Started with Your Solid Sales Funnel?

  • Take one step and start moving forward.
  • Next time I'm going to show you how to do even more and get your customers to start talking about you.
  • You have big work to do. I love showing you how to simplify the steps so you are working smarter instead of harder.
