Quickstart Step 7: What Steps are There in the Sales Process

On Quickstart Step 7, you need to focus on the following:

Step 1 - Free Social Cover Giveaway

Giving away the social covers with a conversion.

Step 2 - Arrange an appointment to review the covers and discuss syndication > Trust Triggle Sale (ex. $399).

Setting up an appointment for them to review the whole cover set you are proposing. This appointment is a comprehensive approach where they can choose the channel they are most interested in and see the potential in creating the covers for all the channels and outlets.

Discuss the syndication and get those covers updated and if there a need to create additional channels for that business to get a trust trigger sale for the full set of covers, designs, and updates.

Step 3 - Upsell Meeting (Monthly Covers and Syndication > ex. $399/month)

Once they said yes to the trust trigger sale, you will have another meeting set up where you will review the final cover set and final results of what happened. 

You will also talk about the monthly creation of the covers, where it will be updated monthly, depending on the purpose. This can be a cover update, branding cover, or reputation cover and tell them the importance of keeping their covers fresh.
