Ok so you attend networking events and you do a great job at collecting business cards.. but now what?

camcard1
Step 1: Install the app called CamCard onto your smart phone.
Step 2: Gather all your cards and scan them in!
Step 3: Put together a “reason” to reach out to them.
Step 4: Email them through Camcard or hire a telemarketer to call them.

Example: You are a Deal Site Marketer. ( This means you put businesses on Daily Deal Sites and take a percentage of the deal.) So you’ve been to networking events and collected a lot of business cards, but you haven’t done anything with them yet!
So lets go through the steps above again:

Step 1: Install the app called CamCard onto your smart phone.

Step 2: Gather all your cards and scan them in!

Step 3: Put together a “reason” to reach out to them.

Call Script:
Hello Jenny it’s Alicia Lyttle. We met at a networking event. Sorry it took me so long to get back to you – I’ve been super busy with all my clients and the deals we are running for them, but I haven’t forgotten about you. Let chat about putting your business on a deal site and how I can help you. I have an opening on Thursday at 2, will that work for you? We will only need 10 – 15 minutes.

Step 4: Email them the script through Camcard or hire a telemarketer to call them. If I was hiring a telemarketer I would change it like this:

Telemarketer call script:
Hello Jenny it’s Amy, Alicia Lyttle’s assistant. You and Alicia met at a networking event. Sorry it took me so long to get back to you – I’ve been super busy with all of our clients and the deals we are running for them, but I haven’t forgotten that Alicia wants to meet with you. So, I’d like to set up an appointment for you two to meet. She’ll tell you all about how we can help you generate more clients, leads and exposure. I have an opening on Thursday at 2, will that work for you? You two will only need 10 – 15 minutes to touch base. Can I pencil you in?

Business Person: Sure that works

Assistant: Great. Write don this number please, it’s our conference line, she’ll meet you on that line at 2pm. I’ll send you an email as well. I have your email as XXXXXXX@gmail.com – is that correct?

Business Person: Yes

Assistant: Great! I’ll let Alicia know. If you need anything between now and then, let me give you our phone number and email. Our number is XXXXXX and our email is XXXXXXXXXX. People usually get so excited about running on a deal site that that have questions before meeting with Alicia, so I like to make sure you have our contact details.

Business Person: ok thanks

Assistant: Thursday at 2pm EST Chat again then, bye.

Pretty simple right?!

camcard2Well you are probably wondering where you will get an assistant from to call business for you … and I’m glad you are wondering because now I can talk about my favorite website again .. www.FIVERR.COM

Got to fiverr.com and do a search for the provider “blingblings” in the search box and hire them to do your calls for you!

Alright – now it’s time to monetize that stack of business cards! Get busy!

In this news story by The Telegraph in the UK, Living Social’ Managing Director in the UK & Ireland, Peter Briffett gives some insight into Living Social and their strategies in working with Local Businesses.

Peter calls LivingSocial the “Future of Local Advertising.”

In this video you will learn:

- Why LivingSocial focuses on local
- Why their merchant center helps businesses to understand the value of their deal
- How LivingSocial delivers customers to local businesses
- The training culture at Living Social “Whale University”

Our Opinion

We use LivingSocial for our clients and we’ve seen some of the biggest benefits as being the ability to:

  1. Generating targeted qualified leads
  2. Generating new buyers/customers for their business
  3. Upfront Payments. LivingSocial pays a percentage of the total amount generated approximately 15 days after the deal has run.  This gives the business a nice upfront cash even before the clients have come in to use their ‘voucher’  ( WARNING: Businesses must manage this properly!)
  4. A spike in traffic on average of 2000%
  5. Brand Exposure
  6. A spike in interest and traffic into a retail location (if they have one)
  7. Repeat customers especially when systems are set up for them to return
  8. Increase online reviews

NOTE: We create the opportunities for our clients to leverage the power of daily deal sites.  Deal Sites are not responsible for helping businesses to take advantage of what they can deliver.  We as marketers have to do that for the businesses.

Got a question?

Call us at 866-523-2144 with your questions about working with deal sites for your business or the businesses of your clients.

Thanksgiving has passed – but today Im reflected on all I’m thankful for.
The past two years have been among the most difficult with my divorce, but on the flip side, it’s also been the most rewarding with our new business “Deal Site Profits.”

Not only has the model done well for myself and my sister ( and our company ) – but we’ve had so many students enjoy succes with this model, that it’s given me such pride to share the model.

For those of you who don’t know our main business – what we do is we represent businesses (online, offline, retail) and put them on deal sites (Groupon, Living Social).
We love it! Our clients are so wonderful and thankful, we have a great relationship with the deal sites and now those that we teach the model to are doing so well with it.

When you find something that works for you, share it. As entrepreneurs we should always be looking to help improve the lives of others as well.
