For Partners – PBS™ Manufacturing Email Content
This post provides reference material from the 2018 Summit’s “Quick and Easy Marketing Tips,” focusing on PBS™ Manufacturing ERP for small businesses.
The following email content, drop-off letter, and phone script use questions in a manner suggested by the book Proactive Selling by Skip Miller.
Questions are placed in the email subject line, in the drop-off introduction letter, and even the phone message script to increase engagement.
[Subject Line:] I spoke with Patti (Trader Joe’s gift bag) – Are you 100% happy with your current Manufacturing ERP system?
I hope you enjoyed the gift bag with Trader Joe’s snacks that Patti passed along to you.
As you can tell from the brochure, Passport Software is a local company that has been providing manufacturing software for over 30 years across the US – for both the financial and operational sides.
I’m not sure if you’re happy with your Manufacturing ERP system, but have you experienced any of these challenges with your current system?
· The system wastes time, effort, and human resource – due to manual or redundant entry
· Production/profitability is held up due to lack of visibility
· No ongoing visibility of profit margins – instead, one GL report at end-of-month/year
· Lack of comprehensive real-time reporting to facilitate expansion
· Financial commitment to a new and unnecessarily large system is unappealing
If so, it might be worth it to see if we can help.
