  7. 7. Strategy 2: Performing Client Health Checks • Considerations: – – – – Frequency Client audience: business principal vs. users Focus on business health first Remember budgeting cycle • Case: Non-profit client – ~25 employees – End-users are using slow, outdated computers to complete work – People were unhappy – Budget was small and unpredictable 7 © 2014 eFolder, Inc. All Rights Reserved.
  8. 8. Strategy 2: Performing Client Health Checks • Strategy: – Pick your battles on budget front – Allocated an additional $1,000 per quarter to replace outdated computers • Key takeaways – Business owners and end-users have unique problems that often go unreported – User pain can lead to new budgets – Become the virtual CIO and be a trusted advisor • Approach your clients as an engineer, NOT as a salesperson 8 © 2014 eFolder, Inc.

  9. 9. Strategy 3: Using Free Trials • Case: Restaurant client – District managers of franchise restaurants are using a remote desktop to access the file server • Process is rudimentary and not flexible • District managers are using Dropbox in their personal life and introduced security risks 9 © 2014 eFolder, Inc.

  10. 10. Strategy 3: Using Free Trials • Strategy: free trial – Offered client an initial 30-day trial with 100 GB and unlimited users • Provided all aspects of deployment, maintenance and support for free – Cloud-enabled the file server – Field managers loved it and quickly adopted Anchor into their workflow – Converted service into monthly recurring revenue source 10 © 2014 eFolder, Inc.

  11. 11. Strategy 3: Using Free Trials • Key takeaways – Free trials are the most sure way of demonstrating benefits and overcoming decision makers that are resistant to change – Always offer a generous trial package and your time – Successful trials and high utilization makes negotiating easier because the organization has already bought in 11 © 2014 eFolder, Inc.

  12. 12. Strategy 4: Pricing for Profit • Case: Financial services client – File server had already been cloud-enabled using Anchor, but other features were under-utilized • Client had already purchased and paid for 250 GB of storage – Other file sync features not in use – Lost upsell opportunity 12 © 2014 eFolder, Inc.

  13. 13. Strategy 4: Pricing for Profit • Strategy: – Drive user adoption of personal productivity features – Get the solution to go viral – Upsold business owner to 500GB package • Key takeaways – Price and package for future growth – Constantly train your clients on new features and functions – User adoption and satisfaction is the lynchpin 13 © 2014 eFolder, Inc.
