#ArcDrive Does Not Do Trials. You Shouldn't Either.


Something has been on my mind for a week or so regarding sales. (go figure)

The Free Trial.

Do you send a fully configured copier to a prospect as a trial? The practice was common back in the day and carried a close rate in the high nineties. I don't hear about trials all that much anymore - I mean, who hasn't seen how a copier works?

The other day, we had a request for a 'trial version' of #ArcDrive.

We won't do trials, we don't do trials. Why would you ask for one when the investment is less than 0.001 percent of your total revenue - why are you hesitating?

I know why.



It's a matter of trust. I get it. Trust is a difficult thing to earn, measure and keep. It is a cliche, but once lost, trust takes a long time to rebuild.

This has nothing to do with trusting ArcDrive; it has EVERYTHING to do with you NOT trusting yourself.

When did you stop believing in yourself? When did you start second-guessing? For both prospect and provider, trials are for the weak and #ArcDrive will not be your enabler. A "No" from #ArcDrive is a version of tough love. Deal.

At the risk of future sales, saying "no" will help you rediscover the trust you've lost - that trust which once spoke to you.

As the owner of a business generating over $1M in revenue, you must have made risky decisions in the past. What happened? Why are you hiding behind "due-diligence"? You're in the shadow of prudence & status-quo - maybe that's why you've stayed at the same revenue level for the past 20 years.

I'm not saying you should make decisions 'willy-nilly' and I know you've been burned in the past. I am asking you to remember the early days when every decision was a risky proposition yet passion ruled.

That day has returned.
