    321SETAPPOINTMENTS.COM comes alive in January 2016!

    in Marketing

    In late 2012, our company was formed to make appointments for select small business owners. Right out of the gate, we connected with a homebuilder who was experiencing difficulty with sales.


    Although the homebuilder had a broker, sales were still sluggish. Then, we connected with an insurance agency with low productivity. This is when 321SETAPPOINTMENTS.COM began to diagnose and provide sales solutions to both real estate and insurance agents.


    After about 14 months, developing a unique sales training program which strengthens salespersons' knowledge in business and delivers a one-of-a-kind sales process, our company is returning to its original business plan.


    321SETAPPOINTMENTS.COM sets appointmentments and provides business development services for the following industries in the U.S. and Canada:



    Certified Public Accountants
    Real Estate Brokers
    Insurance Agencies
    Dentists
    Cosmetic Surgeons
    LASIK Surgeons
    I.T. Firms


    Business services include:



    Sales training for real estate brokers, insurance agencies and companies with sales staff.
    Short-term business loans from $5,000 to $250,000
    Business and real estate lines of credit
    INC and LLC formation services

    2015...What a Great Year to Grow and Learn!

    in Marketing

    321SetAppointments.com has completed a full year in business and a total of sixteen months since we open in September 2014. Our first customer was a homebuilder with 170 lots in Northern California who needed advice on what to do differently to sell homes.


    Next, an insurance agency owner gave a heartfelt speech about the need for agents to increase productivity. This special moment in time created SWAS (Selling Without Appearing to Sell), a unique sales training system developed using 20 years of corporate and independent insurance and real estate sales experience. SWAS opened the minds of over 400 insurance and real estate agents in 2015.


    The biggest message 321SetAppointments.com communicated in Northern California and in a few states across the country was sales training is not product training. Personally, I never realized that many salespersons and some managers did not understand this very important distinction. Did we connect with everyone we reached out to? No. Are we going to continue to attempt to work with agencies and organizations seeking to improve sales performance and productivity? You bet!


    What we learned in 2015 is sales training is outside the acceptable norm of selling insurance and real estate at mostly independent organizations. We were unable to help most managers extend the boundaries of thinking about how to increase sales. However, we did see a number of agencies improve performance and help many agents feel better about sales. We also added real estate and insurance recruiting services. 


    Finally, in the last 90 days of 2015, we entered the small business funding and development market. We were able to help a handful of traditional business owners get alternative funding and establish small business credit histories.


    We are really excited about 2016.
