GROWTHRhode Island MembershipOR BUST! A Recent Sales Success Narrative by Dustin Tidwell, FBC Corporate #1 Membership Sales I spent the majority of my time with Kerri Hannoush, per Dick Cromwell’s instructions. I found her open minded, energetic and excited to learn. I left her confident, experienced and eager to show off her new skills. When I arrived on Thursday, I worked with Kerri at the Warwick office. I took control of Sales Optima and began drafting an open house email. That’s when I discovered Kerri had been editing

a template each time she sent out an email, and so had norecord of previous successful emails. I showed her the correctway to create an email, and we set up Friday morning’s BoatShow email.Friday (2/3/17) was the first day of the boat show, and it was alittle slow. We generated approximately 100 leads and no sales.I did receive several replies to the email, and I worked themwith the sale ending Sunday. Saturday (2/4/17) started off with a bang. We had sold our firstmembership within an hour of the show opening. I made Kerrido all the work. It was important to Dick that she be able toduplicate the process after I left.We were able to move the Yeti cooler that I brought to thecenter of the show, near the bar, giving us a second lead source.I noticed several people were stopping at Dick’s booth to taketheir picture with a mini inflatable boat. I quickly seized theopportunity and created a third lead source.We ended up selling a second membership at the show andI emailed agreements to several others that were not at theshow, including Simone, who was actually in Fort Myers!We generated approximately 300 names on day 2, and I taughtKerri how to use the easier lead form. I took the majority of theleads home and entered them into Sales Optima.Sunday (2/5/17) I adjusted the boat show email with a bit moreaggressive wording and added discount pricing for the firsttime. The deals started pouring in right away. We were writingup our first deals within minutes of the doors opening.

This was a great score for Dick as the new quickly. We ended the boat show with sevenmember paid with check and prepaid his first deals and over 500 leads.year!

Our first task was to enter the remaining leads from the show and draft an email forDeals 5, 6, and 7 came in over the phone to the Open House.

I reiterated to her that she could not waiveron the deadline and that no call was to end We made calls from the buzz score with nowithout a credit card payment! She refocused success. We did the same on Tuesday.
