Get Caught in My “Web”

Filed under: Editorial, Interviews

Hi Everyone!

I’m just back from a long holiday weekend in my beloved Avalon, NJ, where I reveled with such abandon that I now know how Keith Richards feels after a Stones tour.  

Now that September is off and running and school is officially back in session, we’re kicking our education efforts here at ASI into high gear. This Thursday, September 10, I’m moderating a free Webinar featuring three of the smartest, savviest, most talented people I know in the industry: David Nicholson, the newly-appointed president of Counselor Top 40 supplier Polyconcept North America; Vera Muzzillo, co-owner of Counselor Top 40 distributor Proforma; and Memo Kahan, owner of Counselor Top 40 distributor PromoShop. Each of these leaders will be panelists at ASI’s third annual Power Summit, which will be held from November 1-3 at the La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, CA. For more information on this year’s Power Summit, click here.

What listeners will glean from this Webinar are the panelists’ insights and advice on the strategies they’ve been using to keep their businesses above water in a dismal economy, and their stance on topics like new safety regulations and what the industry can expect for the rest of 2009 and into 2010. 

See below for more information on this free education event. I hope to see you log on this Thursday!

More later in the week, and cheers!

    Not a comment…looking for input, Marketing person put me together with one of her clients. AFter a long time, client bought something. Net profit was $500.00. Hoping for a reorder within the year. She has asked about referral payment policy. I don’t have one. Do I take her to a good lunch? Get her a gift card to Panera? Hand er $50.00. Does this keep me from having to pay her again in case of a reorder? Please respond fast.

    Hi Bonnie,

    I would give the marketing person a $50 gift card as a “thank you” for the referral. If the client re-orders, then it’s because of your hard work, creativity and professionalism — not the initial contact’s. Hope this helps! — M
