Apples & Oranges Manned Web Chat

Why use manned web chat?  Well first and foremost, it's really effective!  More and more people want answers whilst they are on your site, they don't want to have to call you, they want the answer there and then!  It also helps to keep people on your site for longer, research shows that a consumer will abandon a site after an average of three clicks, if they can get answers straightaway, it will encourage them to stay.

Don't have a website? Do you run your business via a Facebook page?  That's fine, we can add a manned web chat box to your Facebook page

"To Fasprint, print is about so much more than ink on paper. It's about placing a little piece of you and your brand into everything that you have printed. From your letterheads to exhibition stands and literature, it all represents you at a time when you're not there. That's why we say it's not just putting ink on paper, it's Print with Personality"

The Card Guy

The Fortune is in the follow up!
How do you follow up with the people you meet whilst networking? What about your existing clients and contacts?
Many businesses make marketing all about them, and not about the other person.

Relationship marketing is not a new thing, it has been around for years however people and business seem to have lost that important personal connection...

With MUCH higher open rates than email, and the ability to get past many of the gatekeepers to sales calls, a simple greetings card can be one of the most powerful tools in marketing your business and generating many brilliant referrals.

There are so many creative ways you can enhance the meet like know trust process by showing appreciation and gratitude.

If you want to know how this simple system can help you, come along to our interactive seminar for FREE.
