Map the Experience
Tuesday, May 16, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. ET
We all know it's getting harder and harder to definitively separate ourselves from the competition. We come up with a new product idea or improvement and it's quickly copied. We say we have the best customer service, but so do all our competitors. And we DON'T want to rely on price competition! That's a killer, to be sure. So what do we do? IMTS resident Marketing Gunslinger has a method that can help. It's called Map The Experience. It's not a new tool, but one that is not used a lot because it can seem complicated. Not with Steve. He's going to fully explain this powerful tool, peel back the layers of complexity, and show you have to step-by-step create your own map. And then he'll show you how to use it to find those specific areas you can use to help create that UNCOPYABLE advantage you're looking for.Speaker/Host:

The #1 Muffler Salesperson in the World Talks Sales
She was the only woman on an international sales force for Walker Automotive, a division of Tenneco, and the world's largest manufacturer of automotive mufflers. Her husband said she could bend pipe with the best of them and called her "Muffler Mama."
But before she hung up her welding mask and order book, she was Walker's Salesperson of the Year. She got a trophy that was as tall as her and her picture taken with John Madden next to the Walker Cruiser, the bus that transported Madden across the US while he announced NFL Football games.
A woman succeeding in a man's world, especially in sales, must REALLY know how to sell. Join her as she's interviewed by our resident Marketing Gunslinger, Steve Miller, who happens to also be that husband.Speaker/Host:
