Franklin PLP Pre-Event Conference

The Next Level of Profit

Convert your company’s brand equity into more cash.

Expand to read more

When you started an HVAC business, you had many of the same goals as any successful entrepreneur. One common goal, in particular, was to increase the level of your company’s brand equity. Your company’s reputation (aka, brand equity) in the marketplace is often the difference between being successful or not.

If you agree that your company’s brand equity is one of the most important business assets you have, then you don’t want to miss any opportunity to harness that equity. Because when you harness brand equity, it can drive more sales.

Please accept our exclusive invitation to participate in an exciting and motivating opportunity.

“The Next Level of Profit”

Meet best selling author Weldon Long, author of The Upside of Fear, The Power of Consistency, and Consistency Selling. Weldon will explain how “Fear” prevents HVAC entrepreneurs from achieving the desired outcome for themselves and their families every day. He will provide guidance on how to change many things that might prevent you from achieving the business success you deserve.

After defining the items holding you back from success, EGIA Contractor University will present several proprietary business tools available to select HVAC dealers. These tools are designed to help train and develop the capabilities of your entire team. The EGIA Contractor University has established itself as one of the premier HVAC Development organizations in the industry with state-of-the-art learning management systems and impactful regional and national conferences and events.

Discover the benefits of Private Label Plus, a program offered by Goodman Distribution, Inc.

Who Are You? Presented by Drew Cameron Next Generation Marketing Strategies to Connect with All Generations
Are you speaking the language of the consumer in a venue that reaches them? Are you connecting with suspects, prospects, and existing customers at a level that is meaningful and translates into sales? People are dialed into a specific frequency and most contractors only broadcast static with their marketing and sales messages that fall on deaf ears and blind eyes.  

Words have meaning. Words have power. Choose wisely.  

You need to say what you mean and mean what you say, but only as it’s relevant to the consumer. Unfortunately, most consumers and contractors feel like, “I know you think you heard what I said, but I don’t think you understand what I meant.” In other words, we have mutual mystification and failure to communicate.

Today’s consumer is bombarded by over 3,000 marketing messages a day, has more modalities of communication, and yet less of that communication and marketing registers to move the needle. If you don’t listen, hear, understand, and communicate effectively what consumers need, want and must have, how they can easily buy and own it, and the life impact and experience it will provide … GAME OVER! Oftentimes, before the game starts.

You need to know the consumer’s story before you share your story, or you are not telling a story the consumer wants to hear. You need to learn how to tell a better story than your competition in order to differentiate you and your value proposition to inspire consumers to aspire to something more, and desire to not only do business with you, but catch and share that fire to create consumer loyalty, ambassadors and refer a hire.

Drew Cameron will share a compelling, thought-provoking, eye- and ear-opening message about the disconnect between contractors and consumers and why so many contractors struggle to connect, convert, and create profit.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • Consumer evolution and how the marketplace needs to respond to be relevant
  • How to speak the same language consumers understand
  • What today’s consumer wants and how contractors can connect
  • New and creative approaches to marketing, branding, and lead generation
  • How to create your own pond, instead of fishing in the same pond as your competitor
Stop Leaving Millions on the Kitchen Table Presented by Brigham Dickinson Start Giving Homeowners a Better Buying Experience
83% of homeowners choose a better buying experience over price or brand. When you and your team consistently create customer experiences and serve beyond what the homeowner expects, a whole new world of customer loyalty will open up to you.  

Customers want to buy from people and companies they like, yet without memorable customer experiences, they simply will have no reason to continue using your company. At a minimum, you have to learn how to set expectations for your customers … and keep hitting those expectations time and time again.  

Those organizations that stand out, however, are the ones that EXCEED customer expectations. This is what we are referring to when we use the phrase “customer experience.” With world class customer service, you’ll be able to gain customers without spending a ton of resources on marketing that may or may not work.

In fact, the best marketing you can do for your business these days is to turn a customer into a raving fan! If you are ready to take your business to the next level and stop wasting marketing resources on customer-gathering and retention strategies that no longer work, it’s time you empower your team to create a world class customer experience.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • Consumer evolution and how the marketplace needs to respond to be relevant
  • How to save money on marketing dollars by maximizing customer referrals
  • The science of setting (and exceeding) customer expectations
  • How to reach unparalleled levels of customer loyalty
Sparking Sales Success Presented by Mark Matteson Achieving the 75% Close Ratio
Change the way you look at how and why you sell.

Plus, bestselling author and internationally in-demand speaker Mark Matteson will lay out some of the primary differences between residential and commercial sales and what drives the decision-making process in each, as well as how to use the right open-ended questions and simplified active listening during prospect-qualifying to drastically improve your close ratio, and much more!

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • Why “Activity, Activity, Activity” is the starting point to sales, and how to fill that sales funnel and track your progress
  • The secret question to ask when presenting to a committee or couple (you have to attend to learn it!)
  • Three closes that work better than 75% of the time: The Silent Pen, The Choice of Yeses, The “Next Stop” close
  • How to build breakthrough relationships with prospects to ensure long-term success
  • How to reap endless referrals from your existing relationships
Inspired to Succeed Presented by Weldon Long Discovering Your Motivation to Prosper

Understanding what truly motivates you and gaining clarity about your “Why” will help you stay focused on what is important to you and put your life and business in overdrive. It will allow you to create higher levels of success than ever before.  

Join New York Times bestselling author Weldon Long as he helps you uncover the hidden secrets that define your life and business. Get ready to gain an entirely new level of clarity, purpose and prosperity in your life and business.
