    Overview

    At present, the workforce is 29% Boomers, 23% Gen-Xers, and 45% Millennials. Bad news: what captivates one group is turning off another. Worse news: you can’t just target the final decision-makers with your marketing. During the sales process you–or maybe only your website–will touch all three generations. How do you adapt your marketing and sales pitches, so they are effective regardless of who is receiving them?

    In this fast-paced, action-focused session you will learn:

    • Your own generational blind spots that are sabotaging making a connection with older or younger clients
    • The one piece of research you must do before talking to a decision maker
    • How to accommodate contradictory needs of different generations in one sales pitch
    • How to update your visuals, websites, interactive activities, and even your CRMs so they get your message across to all generations

    Anna Liotta teaches you how to “tickle your audience without ticking them off.” [I didn’t get the exact wording of your slogan] This is a must-attend session for speakers of all generations–well, only if you want to close more business.

    About our speaker:

    Anna Liotta, MA, CSP, is an award-winning keynote speaker and best-selling author with a deep understanding from 20 years of research on how generational demographics and dynamics affect every aspect of business success.

    Early in her career, Anna identified a common theme: a fundamental lack of understanding between different generations within an organization hinders trust, alignment and bottom-line outcomes. This led to her life’s work of helping people develop practical strategies for optimal communications across generations.

    Annaʼs most impressive generational credential however is that Anna is the youngest girl of nineteen children. This means that every Thanksgiving, graduation, or wedding is a fascinating case study in multi-generational communication.

    The founder of The Generational Institute™ and author of Unlocking Generational CODES, © Annaʼs clients range from the PGA of America to the NBA, from Amazon.com to the Womenʼs Foodservice Forum.

    Selling to Association...

    Bypass the Gatekeeper and Sell Through the Backdoor



    Event Description:

    Ed Rigsbee, CSP, CAE, will teach you how to sell to trade associations and professional societies by going after their soft underbelly—publication editors. In building a relationship with any association, Ed will teach you how to first build a relationship bridge with the association’s editor by offering articles adapted from your books, keynotes or seminars. Then, you’ll learn how to use the editor relationship to bridge the divide into the meetings department. And, you’ll learn how to find these associations through free Internet directories and web sites.

    The market: 7,500 national and international associations and societies—and many have local, state, and regional affiliated associations/societies; delivering a total of about 90,000 organizations holding over 280,000 meetings yearly.

    • This is the implementation system designed especially for those who hate to make cold calls.
    • Learn how to let association publication editors connect you with association meeting decision makers—soft sell through the back door!
    • Learn how to find your (paying) association and society prospects at no charge through online directories and search methods.
    • Learn which hard-copy directories are actually worth buying.
    • Learn how to scan the association/society publications and meetings for usable selling knowledge.
    • Learn Ed’s article distribution methods.


    Ed’s Four-Step Association Business Development System

    • Write articles based on your expertise that association editors will want to share with their readers.
    • Make your Relationship Bank Deposits; contact association publication editors and make available your articles.
    • Use your newly developed relationship to connect (warm call) with the association’s meeting planner.
    • Start selling!
