  • Thank you for taking the time top see me today. I’m really excited to explore areas of opportunity between our organization. I asked for just five minutes of your time today and I plan to keep that commitment, unless you wish to meet longer. Let me introduce you to Proforma, the one source for all your promotional product, printing, document and eCommerce solutions.
  • As a businessperson, you know how important making the right connections can be. When you partner with Proforma, a leading provider of graphic communications, you connect to the power of a large North American organization with the responsive service of a local business.

  • People don’t buy a drill to have a drill. They buy a drill because they need a hole. Companies do not buy promotional products, printing, documents and eCommerce solutions because they want to buy these things. Companies purchase these to drive profitability in their organizations.

  • At Proforma we make Printing and Promotions more profitable. Ask Several additional probing questions to encourage additional dialogue: • What projects does (company name) have coming up next? • In of the areas we just reviewed do you feel is the biggest opportunity for profit improvement? • How do you feel I can bring value to (prospect company name)? Make sure you create a reason to come back before leaving the prospect!
  • Thank you again for the opportunity to speak to you today. If, from time to time, I find something that will benefit your company may I stop by and drop them off?”
