BTA Marketing Workshop to be Held Nov. 5-6

Workshop to take place at Muratec America Inc. headquarters 

Kansas City, MO — The Business Technology Association (BTA; www.bta.org) has announced that its next BTA Marketing Workshop will take place Nov. 5-6, 2015, at Muratec America Inc. headquarters in Plano, Texas. Led by Darrell Amy, Larry Levine and Jon Mitchell of Dealer Marketing, the workshop makes sure attendees’ dealerships are ready to implement best practices in online marketing.

According to a recent article in the Harvard Business Review, business decision makers are, on average, 57 percent of the way through the buying process before they contact a vendor or sales rep. The buying process has changed. More of the initial research is done online. The dealership that is not involved in this online research may not even get a shot at the deal.

Dealer Marketing advises office technology dealers to consider these questions: Has your dealership adapted to this new buying process? Or, are you confused by the many local seminars and Internet articles from online marketing people that make big promises but do not understand the office technology industry?

The BTA Marketing Workshop helps to ensure dealerships are ready to implement best practices in online marketing. Attendees will see real-world examples of how dealers use the Internet to generate leads, cross-sell current clients and position themselves as local experts. The workshop prepares attendees to build a solid foundation for online marketing efforts and walk away with a true action plan.

This workshop is designed for dealership principals who want to understand marketing and build a plan for their dealerships, marketing managers who want to learn best practices and sales managers who want to know how to generate leads. Attendees will learn: how to turn their dealership websites into lead-generating engines; what types of information prospects are looking for online; how to get found by the right people; and three ways social media can help the sales process. Attendees will also receive actionable items for online marketing and social selling, and 12 monthly best-practices conference calls.

Comments from past attendees of the workshop are favorable:

“Brainstorming about creating compelling offers was good. I wish we could have spent more time doing this. You have a lot of great content in this workshop. This can definitely help dealers understand how social marketing can improve their success.” —Dave Quint, Advanced Systems Inc., Waterloo, Iowa

“As a one-man operation, this workshop was incredibly useful. Lots of ideas and information to go back to Stratix Systems with. Thank you!” — Anthony Viscariello
Stratix Systems, Reading, Pa.

“This workshop was really useful in helping me frame a strategy for our marketing efforts.” — Ronald Hay, DOCUmation Inc., San Antonio, Texas

For the past 10 years, Amy has helped dealers develop online marketing strategies that support their business goals and challenges. Previously he served as a sales rep, sales manager, branch manager and DSM for Toshiba.

Levine is the director of the Dealer Marketing Social Sales Academy. Drawing on 27 years of industry sales experience, he coaches copier/MFP salespeople to use LinkedIn in the sales process.

Mitchell is the social media and campaigns director for Dealer Marketing. He manages social media for dealerships across the country. Mitchell’s previous experience includes working for HP and managing a document management system for a Blue Cross affiliate.

BTA member tuition for the BTA Dealer Marketing Workshop is only $995 for up to three people from a single dealership. BTA members may apply their $150 educational discount received with their membership toward this workshop. Non-member tuition is $1,425 for up to three people from a single dealership; registration includes a one-year BTA dealer membership.

New Xerox Color Printer, MFP Put Big Business Capabilities Within Reach of Small Offices

NORWALK, Conn., Nov. 15, 2016 – Most small business printers and multifunction devices are serviceable, but with limited capabilities and reliability. They’re difficult to set up and don’t deliver what offices need today. But that is about to change. Xerox today introduced the Xerox Phaser® 6510 color printer and Xerox WorkCentre® 6515 color multifunction printer (MFP). Right out of the box, both offer easy setup and high-productivity tools such as two-sided, single-pass scanning. The MFP also features a 5-inch, app-based, tablet-like touchscreen user interface that offers scan preview, editing features, intuitive navigation and the ability to customize workflows. Ample paper capacity of up to 850-sheets and new Super-Fine EA toner deliver the type of performance typically seen in large enterprise environments. “Until now, the options for small business printing have been mostly products with marginal capabilities, limiting the types of jobs small businesses can manage on their own,” s..
