Why Are Copier Dealers Demanding Staff Return to the Office?

June 2020

The past few months, paid ‘experts’ yelled “change or die”.  It’s been a broken record for decades.  In the end, no matter how loud and often these pundits shout, “You are not changing!”, you HAVE changed – you ARE changed.  It is inevitable – everyone and everything transforms. 

Instructing us to change is nostalgic.

 

Today, in the turbulence that is Covid19 are the ways of 2019 still viable? Your customers have changed.  They now wish for fewer face to face meetings, prefer working with an existing relationship, and no longer consider “remote” a dirty word.  Many companies are moving to a remote working relationship with employees.

The Covid19 Illusion: IV Manifest NightMare




May 13, Wisconsin was released from Covid19 lock-down and just like that, the virus disappeared. 

Not really.

The Covid19 Illusion: III


How mad would you be if you found out that shutting down the country was the correct tactic executed at the correct time but delaying the removal of lockdown(s) was not based on reality?

Would you be mad enough to 'peacefully protest'?

'They' said there would be a spike when we opened the polls and voted in person - it did not happen.

'They' said if we didn't maintain 'six feet' distance - indeed, 'they' sent cops out to backyard parties, unapproved haircuts, dangerous playdates, hooligan sports activities and small businesses trying to stay afloat - this was just in Oconomowoc.  

Again, 'they' predicted a spike and again, no spike was had.

'They' squawked and whined after the supreme court ruled 'No Mas' - and again exclaimed 'the spike! the spike!' Nope.

'They' shamed everyone with ears but no mask. "If you don't wear a mask, you're killing everyone around you. SHAME."  Guess what?  No spike.

State Fair, Summerfest, Germanfest, Beer gardens, bandshell - all canceled because of the spike(s) that never were.

Fear is the motivator...

The Covid19 Illusion: II



Tell me what you see? 

Is there 'science' on this graph? 

Tell me how this is wrong? Tell me how the complete lack of social distancing since re-opening has caused a spike? 

 And then tell me why there are still lockdowns. Tell me again why we destroyed the greatest economy in history? Tell me why we can't throw the switch. Tell me why most of the casualties occurred in Democrat-run states. 

Tell me again why a barber in Michigan lost his license. Tell me again why they arrested a hairdresser in Texas. Tell me again why millions were spent on an unused hospital at the fairgrounds, why both hospital ships, after being rushed into service, left without utilizing more than 10% capacity?

While you're at it, tell me why Summerfest & The State Fair are canceled. 

Tell me again why so many tattle-tales in Lake Country turned our Police Officers into hall monitors. I EXPECTED to see a jump in Covid19 - Lake Geneva was PACKED with both 'Sconi's and IllinoisMe people. But... 

Maybe the spike is there, buried under statistics. 

Maybe the spike will happen in Oct & Nov. Either way, it sure is quiet out here on the interwebs...

The Covid19 Illusion


Wisconsin opened up completely May 13. 

Fifteen minutes after the announcement, bars filled up, and the CDC 'rules' became recommendations. A day before, local PD's were enforcing 'social distancing' as "Karen" after "Karen" felt the need to snitch on neighbors. 

The next morning, it was like Covid19 never happened. 

Some predicted doom. Others were not so sure. Regardless, Wisconsin ended up being the nation's Petri dish; either the Covid scare was overblown, or the entire state was going to end up with Corona Virus. 

What if...what if all the experts are wrong or simply exaggerated. More accurately, what if certain politicians took advantage of a crisis? What if locking down, destroying the economy, & creating a huge social class dependent on a central government was simply the result of a leveraged opportunity? 

 - everything has changed.

New to Copier Sales: How to Write a Blog or Article


You’ve heard it before: “You’ve got to create content.” Your LinkedIn feed is probably littered with all sorts of influencers pitching their personal branding and content generation classes.

Distinguishing yourself through content is undeniably effective, but how? Adding one more task to your selling process is daunting. But writing about how you’ve helped others is a great way to project expertise and build credibility. Above all, writing can be a catharsis.

That’s the trick to good content — write for yourself, to yourself. There are two basic audiences: those in the industry — coworkers, vendors, and the like, and those on the other side of the table — prospects, and customers. Talking with either audience requires relevant ideas, subject matter and empathy. Put yourself in their shoes. For example, if you recently had a great prospecting or cold-calling experience, tell the story. The odds are good that not only will your peers find it interesting, your prospects will as well. Remember, they sell things too.

So what is the process? How can you create content easily and quickly? Authors each have their own manner of writing and without getting too detailed, I’ve put together a suggested list of activities and steps:

Subject: Determine what interests you. It is much easier to write about something you enjoy and weaving in relevant lessons as a metaphor.

Outline: A simple list...

Greg Walters - The Bourbon Interview


I was on the radio.

No really. Somebody, somewhere, somehow, was impressed enough to risk putting me in front of a mic and letting me talk - about BOURBON no less.

And bands.  And Oconomowoc, Wi.

The times were fun.

#Sales - How to Write an Article.

Cute! And so innocent.

Everyone is telling you to 'create content', get out on LinkedIN, build your brand, on and on.

It's easy to do, you just "...sit at the keyboard and bleed..."

I've been writing blogs and articles since 2008 - for Xerox, Ricoh, most of the industry journals and The Death Of The Copier. From LA to Orlando to Sydney to Tokyo.

There is no magic, but I've learned a thing or two and I'd like to share a bit with you:
