Tips On Getting The Most Out Of Your Trial

If you haven’t tried out the free trial for Next Level Suite here are some tips on how to get the most out of your trial. Chances are you do not buy a new car without doing some research and at the very least give it a test drive. The same should be true for your Next Level Suite CRM trial. To do your research check out the You Tube Channel and FACEBOOK.

1. The trial period is a short time to really see the true value of Next Level Suite. However, set a small measurable goal for your trial period. After you see how you can quickly reach that goal imagine what you can do with unlimited time and setting bigger goals each week, month, and year.

2. CLICK HERE to schedule your private demonstration. They will ask you questions to learn more about your business, what features you are most interested in, and we will show you how you can use some of the other features based on some best practices we have picked up along the way. It will be specific to you and your business. You might even want to have a few others in the office around to see the demo too.

3. Get the office involved in the trial. Leading from #2- chances are more than one person in the office would be using Next Level Suite. The more people you have using it in the trial the more things you will learn and the better the ideas will be.

4. Add your contacts to your trial account. Yes, really import a list of clients. You do not need to import all of your contacts but import enough to be able to give it a good test run.

5. Use all of the features. Sign up for the executive account and try them all out. You do not know what you want unless you try it all out. Think BIG about how you can use each of the features.

Taking and Seeking Advice

By : mnwAdmin |January 21, 2015 |Blog |0 Comment

 

NextLevelCoachingsnip-2

 

Taking and seeking advice is less about the advice itself and more about the person who is offering it.

I reflect on the great advice I received and acted on as a young man to follow my cousin and join the Army National Guard. The idea of joining the military never hit me until he said I should join.  I scored well on the testing and was offered a variety of roles and bonuses to join different branches of the military. I again listened to my cousin and enlisted for a job that would have me holding bags of gunpowder over my head. Needless to say I lasted 6 months and quit before leaving for Basic Training.

I could have listened to other people whose background, experiences and successes would have allowed them to provide better insight and advice. My cousin was of great intentions but not the best advisor for me.

Who are you taking advice from? What is in their background that you want to achieve? What training and education are they coming from? What are their goals and aspirations?

Before you seek and accept advice from anyone. Ask questions and learn about who they are. Next Level Coaches are a great place to start. Our Coaches are experienced, successful and certified. Don’t leave your advice up to chance, interview a Next Level Coach today!

To inquire about our coaching services or if you would like to explore becoming a Next Level Coach, contact Rich Fino, VP of Next Level Coaching;coachfino@masternetworks.net. You can also request a complimentary coaching session by clicking here.
