Increasing our value to the Ipod generation
Rick A Dolezal, ABB
Plant Managers and key decision makers in our business going forward will be products of the Ipod generation. You may recall, other electronic music players started this craze. RIO had the best selling portable MP3 player a decade ago, but they have not had the success Apple has had with the Ipod. The Ipod succeeded because it was easy to use.
In the same way, our marketplace going forward is looking for ease of use and an ease of doing business. As we package our marketing message to our sales force, it must be quick to understand, show immediate benefits and communicate a sense of urgency. We'll show how you can set up a marketing plan and the sales message that results in sales in this evolving environment.
