From the Office…

Don’t miss URSULA MENTJES at our Spring Conference!

We have confirmation! I just hung up on a conference call committee, where we also invited our speaker for the spring conference onto the call. I’m thrilled that we have a two-time bestselling author, entrepreneur and sales expert, Ursula Mentjes. You can read about her in this issue of Paperclips.

Remember to save the dates of Thursday, March 5th for the start of our “Social Event-Downtown Des Moines Pub Crawl” and then we will hit it strong on Friday, March 6th with an all-day celebration of sessions for sales, graphics, and our Ad Award Luncheon. It will conclude Friday evening with our banquet.

The venue is new as the conference is being held at the Renaissance Des Moines Savery Hotel, 401 Locust St.  Don’t worry about downtown parking fees, as the hotel will give us all free parking ramp passes! It will be an awesome 65th anniversary celebration…be sure you are a part of it! Registration details will be coming out shortly.

Back to Ursula…her first session will be for both sales and publishers. Her second session she will drill down on the sales aspect of our business.  On our call, we talked a lot about doubling sales and getting results for your customers. Whether you are a seasoned veteran or a “newbie” and started selling advertising two weeks ago…both sets of experience will gain knowledge from Ursula’s presentation. She will review local selling techniques, giving your customers a choice and Maximum Accelerated Selling! A description of this program is below.

Maximum Accelerated Selling: The Mindset and Strategies You Need to Double Your Sales Fast

Most people believe that it is not possible to double their sales in a short amount of time. Why? Because we’ve been conditioned and trained to do what everyone else in our industry is doing. But that is simply not the truth. If you are ready to double your sales, or for your sales team to double their sales, then this keynote is for you! This power-packed presentation will help attendees discover the importance of shifting into “radical” beliefs and proven strategies that support their action and sales growth abilities while honoring their prospects in this process.

This interactive and engaging presentation will help attendees:

  • Release limiting beliefs about doubling their sales fast
  • Discover that maximum accelerated selling is not only possible–it is NECESSARY
  • Become sales leaders in their industry
  • Implement sales strategies that support maximum accelerated selling
  • And much more!

Ursula Mentjes will inspire and motivate sales professionals and entrepreneurs to act immediately–so they can double their sales in the next 90 days. Why wait?

As I end this article, and we get ready for the Holiday Season…take a moment and count your Blessings. There will be a lot of great things happening for MFCP in the next year! Vickie and I are blessed to represent this Assocation and look forward to connecting with you in 2020!
