Trouble, oh we got trouble

Posted by Lew Hoff on Feb 2, 2011 5:02:48 PM

There are those who just cannot get enough snow – kids and dogs, in particular. When Bubbles, our Maltese, jumps into a pile of snow, she would be invisible but for her two eyes. In the immortal words of Professor Harold Hill of Music Man fame, when we have snow like we have had lately in many parts of the country, those of us in the exhibition and events industry have

Right here in River City!

Bartizan Lead Retrieval Exhibiting at Upcoming ASAE & The Center's Annual Meeting & Expo in Los Angeles

Posted by Joanna Stasuk on Aug 10, 2010 10:34:15 AM

Bartizan Connects, the leading innovator in lead retrieval, is set to exhibit at the upcoming 2010 ASAE & The Center's Annual Meeting & Expo in Los Angeles, California. Bartizan will be exhibiting and giving product demonstrations of the iLeads app at Bartizan's booth 115 on Sunday, August 22nd from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. and August 23rd from 10:00 a.m. - 1:30 p.m.

We are thrilled to be exhibiting at the ASAE & The Center’s Annual Meeting. We are excited to get industry insiders' feedback regarding our breakthrough app, iLeads. iLeads is the industry’s first lead retrieval app and it's a new and better way to serve our customers.

Trade show organizers, attendees and exhibitors across a range of industries and show profiles, plus Bartizan's focus groups, have all made it clear: exhibitors like lead retrieval but dislike many aspects of traditional lead retrieval. Unlike traditional lead retrieval, iLeads makes adding notes and qualifiers easier than ever. This helps exhibitors identify their best prospects during and after the show. There is no barcode required, eliminating common barcode headaches.

iLeads is a new and better way to collect data and exchange information. It is the most cost effective and easiest to use lead retrieval product available to exhibitors.

With this ground-breaking app, exhibitors can capture, qualify and manage tradeshow leads anywhere - on the show floor, at the airport or even at dinner. They can also quickly attach notes to leads. With the iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, exhibitors can follow up instantly with trade show leads gathered with a text, email or phone call, and send updates right from the tradeshow floor to headquarters, customers and prospects. Exhibitors can also check out lead profiles on Google, LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.

The application is available now for free download and test drive at the iTunes store. To download the iLeads iPhone App, iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad users may go to the Apple App Store within iTunes and search for 'iLeads.' To test and see how easy iLeads is to use: simply launch the app and enter event access code: 1006. Then click on the event and enter test badge number: 8188.

Nothing Takes the Place of Persistence

Posted by Lew Hoff on Jun 25, 2010 10:24:45 AM

What make a great salesperson? Number one on my list is persistence. Without persistence, nothing else matters much. Calvin Coolidge (my favorite president) once said, “Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not. Nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not. Unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not. The world is full of educated derelicts.”

Turning a sales lead into a sale requires persistence. Let me give you one example. Back in the late 60s I was in sales at United Air Lines in New York City. A very successful salesman by the name of Cliff Zabca had been trying to see a major account for months. The man was always too busy. One day Cliff stopped by his prospect’s Midtown office just as the man was about to leave. “Can’t see you now, Cliff. I’ve got to catch a cab to LaGuardia.” Some people would see that as a barrier. Cliff saw it as an opportunity. He accompanied his prospect down the elevator onto the street where he hailed a cab for the man, then jumped in the cab with him. He then had a half-hour of the man’s undivided attention. And, yes, he did make the sale..

By Their Badges You Shall Know Them

Posted by Lew Hoff on Jun 16, 2010 5:44:33 PM

In Manhattan, you don’t open your back door to let Fido take his morning constitutional, you walk him. Of course, there are some busy (and probably very affluent) New Yorkers who hire someone else to walk Fido. I always marvel when I see a dog-walker with a half-dozen dogs happily marching up the avenue. These dogs never seem to bark or mix it up with one another. Good breeding? Who knows?

But for those like me who walk their own dog, Fido, or in my case Bubbles, serves as much as a name badge as the badge you would wear at a trade show. When a fellow dog walker that I see regularly approaches, it is just as likely that he’ll greet Bubbles by name as he will say, “Hello, Lew”. The fact is, as many people know me by my “badge” Bubbles, as know me by name. I, too, will usually know the name of someone’s dog before I learn the owner’s name.
