Talking to Clients

Talk to your customer, not above them

One of the biggest things that turns off prospective clients is when someone is talking way above their heads.

It’s insulting, it’s confusing, and it shows the client that the business person doesn’t care about them or their feelings. All they care about is making money.

A good way to generate leads is to talk to prospective clients in a way that they can understand. The last thing that anyone wants to do is to feel like they are dumb, and when they don’t understand what you are talking about, that
is how they feel.

Customer relationships are built on trust. Basically, it’s how you are perceived by the business owner. When I speak to businesses I mostly listen to what their needs are, and develop a plan to turn those needs into solutions.

By listening to a client, you can develop a keen sense of what their needs are. Such as:

  • Are they Really Interested?
  • Are they Really Busy and Need to Reschedule?
  • Are you Just a Windbag…Full of Yourself?
  • Or…Do you have a genuine concern for their business!

Whether you are making a flyer, a brochure, or your website. write it in layman’s terms so that people… whether it be the owner, manager or secretary…  can understand what it is that you are saying.

It’s easy to think that clients will be impressed by the vast knowledge that you show, but it can have just the opposite affect if they get turned off by terms that they don’t understand.

If there are terms that you have to use, consider including a glossary (list of terms and their definitions) so that people know that you thought of them when you were creating the information.

This will not only impress them but it will also show that you really care about them being well informed.

Don’t assume that everyone will know what you are talking about, or will be impressed by big words and a lot of jargon. Depending on who the target audience is, it may make them decide to turn around and go with your

My strategy is simple…meet the business owner or client. Describe quickly what I do…then listen for telltale signs of “What are their Needs!”

I always carry my business cards, flyer, or handout describing exactly what I do…and how I can help their business reduce overhead while controlling costs.

Using an Energy Consultant for Energy Brokerage Business

If you are considering jumping into the world of becoming an Energy Brokerage Consultant but do not have experience in this type of marketing, it is definitely worthwhile to consider teaming up an established consultant to assist you in your business endeavor.

This is important because they can do a great deal to assist you in ensuring that the marketing effort is a success. You may pay more for their services than you would to handle the building of an Energy Sales Brokerage on your own but the results you gain from the effort will likely be significantly higher.

Hiring a consultant to assist you in your Energy campaign is even a worthwhile endeavor if you have some experience in Energy Consulting but are competing in a competitive niche and need some additional assistance to help you rise above the competition.

The key to working with a seasoned consultant to assist in an Energy Brokerage business campaign is to choose the right consultant. You will find there are many different options available to you as Energy Consulting has become a huge industry.

However, not all consultants are created equal. You may find that some create significantly better results than others. There are, however, a few characteristics to look for when seeking a qualified consultant in the Energy Consulting industry. Surprisingly cost is not one of the most important considerations.

Experience and past performance are much more important. You can compare costs among consultants who are similarly qualified but using cost as a primary source of evaluation is not recommended.

Experience is very important when it comes to selecting a consultant to assist you in an Energy Sales business building campaign. Experience is critical because consultants who have a great deal of experience also have a great deal of understanding of which techniques work best and which techniques are not as effective.

This can save you a great deal of time and money as there will likely not be as much experimentation necessary as there would be with a less experienced consultant. More experienced consultants will also likely be better skilled at dealing with clients and will likely answer your questions more quickly and keep you better informed about the progress of your campaign.

All of this is important because you will likely be very interested in receiving progress reports and staying up to date on everything that is going on with your business.

Seeking out an expert in the Energy Consulting industry with an excellent past record of performance is also very important. This is so important because consultants who have had a great deal of success in the past will likely have a great deal of success while assisting you as well.

Past performance is considered to be one of the best indications of future performance. This does not mean that new consultants are necessarily going to perform poorly but there is some risk involved in selecting a consultant who does not have a great deal of experience or who has not performed well in the past.

You can feel much more confident putting your Energy Consulting campaign in the hands of a consultant who typically generates the type of results you are looking for in your own Energy Consulting campaign.

Once you have evaluated consultants on the basis of experience and past performance, it is time to start considering what you are looking to achieve. Considering attainable goals early in the process of seeking a consultant may cause you to be influenced by sakes pressure over performance.

Some consultants may be incredibly convincing but if they are not capable of producing the desired results, it may end up being a complete waste of time. However, once you have narrowed your list of potential consultants down to a few qualified candidates, it is definitely time to start comparing exactly what is needed to reach your goals.

Once you are confident each of the candidates on your list is well qualified, choosing the least experienced candidate is not a wise choice. However it is important to note all of the training and support involved to ensure you are making an accurate comparison.

As an independent Energy Consultant operating my own business, I have already asked the questions and received the answers. So if you’re seeking out a knowledgeable, motivated sponsor for an Energy Consulting Brokerage business I’m offering my services. You will not be disappointed, watch this video and call me right away.

How to Choose an Energy Broker

Using an electricity broker will allow you to focus on your core business while your broker focuses on finding the best available market pricing for your electricity needs. The deregulated energy market is a real-time trading exchange (just like the stock or bond market) with pricing that is time sensitive and could change on an hourly basis.

Your energy consultant will be able to provide you with the most current best pricing, provide detailed analysis, and cost savings all in one place. At the Emex this is all done in a one stop shopping atmosphere. Locking in to take advantage of historically low rates is as simple as taking a nap.

We are a licensed and bonded electricity broker providing service to countless commercial businesses in energy deregulated states. (For a list of deregulated states Click Here)

The Energy Consultant (that’s me) is an independent energy broker helping customers find the right energy product for their business. As your energy broker I will help your business save time and money by securing real-time offers from National Suppliers serving deregulated states. We will use our proprietary online technology to help you compare electricity providers and enjoy the low electricity rates your company deserves.

A power broker can provide commercial businesses a must have substantial savings difference than if the business had to contact and negotiate a contract with several different suppliers. A reputable brokerage will have established trustworthy relationships with major electricity suppliers. Thereby, taking advantage of the relationships to enlist the greatest savings for their clients.

The competition and cut throat nature of the commercial energy markets has meant that it is essential for businesses to employ a business electricity broker in order to obtain the cheapest commercial electricity rates.

What many businesses don’t know is that it’s free and easy to switch.  In addition to the fact, your default utility will still maintain the lines, service, and emergencies along with monthly billing. What would happen in the event of a power outage?  You still would call your utility.

So, how is this process done?

Your energy broker will provide you with competitive pricing based on your organization’s usage, credit, and load factors. Contracts for each supplier bidding, terms of service ie: 6 months, 12 months etc…

Discuss and provide what is included in the pricing, such as, taxes, generation, transmission and go over each line item as shown on your bill. Do a comparative analysis of all suppliers bidding on your contract, and advise which offers the best pricing, terms, and savings.

Then you lock in your rate.

Several other factors such as the natural gas market, will allow the broker to negotiate with several providers to compete for your business, and in return provide you with the best possible rate.

Brokers are not in any way, shape or form associated with any major suppliers except on the most ethical business level.This allows brokers to give an actual apples to apples comparison of suppliers providing business owners unbiased and factual transparency in securing the best offer, and solutions for their customers.

The relationship between natural gas prices and electricity rates are often intertwined. With Natural Gas at historic lows. Now is a great time to lock-in to a low electricity rate for your business. Don’t have the time to look around? No problem. By partnering with The Energy Consultant you will see everything upfront and above-board. I will work with you to ensure you achieve the most beneficial services for your company.

In Closing,

Whoever supplies your energy, the electric utilities will continue to deliver uninterrupted, ensuring that sufficient electricity and service are provided. You will continue to have access to customer service representatives, and utility crews will still respond to emergencies and power outages.

What’s an Energy Consultant?

An energy consultant works with the management or owner of a business to improve the profitability of the business by reducing energy costs. Working with the top management, you can rest assured the consultant is sought after to solve problems and develop solutions.

The need for problem solvers for business problems among large and small businesses world-wide has never been greater.

Until a few years ago, the title “consultant” was more or less
limited to retired diplomats and top corporate officers. In other words, until recently, the consultant’s position was looked upon more as honorary than actual.

But that has all changed dramatically in the past few years.

The field of energy consulting continues to grow. In fact, independent consulting is one of the fastest growing businesses in the country today!

The ever-changing moods of the buyer plus the myriad of crisis situations faced by businessmen almost daily, have created this “seller’s market” for the alert consultant. How do you become an energy consultant?

Sell Yourself-

It is not necessary for you to have owned or operated a successful business to become a successful energy consultant. Nor is it imperative that you have been in management or have held a titled position. An understanding of what your industry is doing in today’s current economy will be most of the information you will need to succeed.

You will, however, need the ability to sell yourself, and an up-to-date understanding of the area in which you intend to assist others.

The first step is to make an honest evaluation of your own training and experience. You might be an ambitious go getter, retired or just looking to supplement your income, but looked upon as someone who was never recognized for your abilities.

You might be especially good in such areas as:

  •  Customer Service 
  •  Marketing
  • Scheduling 
  •  Expediting
  •  Productivity…

Start-up Considerations-

You don’t need a big, fancy executive type office in order to get started, especially if you start your consulting business on a part-time basis.

A spare bedroom, a section of the basement, or even a corner of the dining room, will do very nicely.

If you handle your own bookkeeping/filing, you will need a ledger of some kind, and a file cabinet or two. You will need a good printer if you plan to do your own correspondence.

Get the kind of file folders that hang from the sides of the file cabinet’s drawers, allowing you to position the file folder title anywhere across the top of the folder.

Then as you add clients to your file, you can keep them in order without a jumbled-looking file drawer in which you have to search for each title.

It’s also a good idea to keep your active accounts in one drawer, your “no response yet” accounts in another-

And master copies of all letters, proposals, business contact information and records in still another drawer.

You’ll also need business cards. Go to they’ll make 250 business cards for free.

Get the Word Out-

One you’ve decided on energy consulting as the field you want to conduct business in, and have your office or working space set up, the next thing is to let people know you’re available for work and who you are.

Definitely use some common sense and applied knowledge before spending any money on advertising. Generally speaking, you will pick up some customers regardless of the problem area you specialize in, by advertising in your own area’s most popular newspaper.

However, we wouldn’t recommend much more than a small ad in the Sunday editions, unless you’re in direct mail, MLM or a garage sale consultant. See this article on what MLM, Direct Marketing is all about.

Check with your Chamber of Commerce for a list of trade and specialized business publisher’s in your area. Either pick up a sample copy of the business journal at the local newsstand or write to the publisher and ask for a sample.

Look through those catering to the type of business you want to serve. Check the editorial styles and types of advertising they carry, then select the one that corresponds with your needs.

Basically, unless a publication reaches the people you are trying to sell to; don’t advertise in it regardless of the style, quality, or advertising rates.

Your First Client-

All that’s left is meeting with the prospect, listening to their problems, and hearing what they want or need, then bring them into your online pricing platform and solve their energy problems.

This means selling yourself to the prospect assuring the business owner you know what you’re talking about, and that you can make their high energy bills a thing of the past.

You now have a plan that can lead you to success as an Independent Energy Consultant. Remember, though, no amount of research, reading, listening or investment can make you successful until you do something with them.

Take advantage of the newest web-based technology in the energy brokerage industry and become a registered Independent Energy Power Broker.  The first real-time, web-based service allowing comparison of current and historical energy rate data.  EMEX, founded in 2007, has established relationships with the top energy providers to help secure business owners significantly lower rates.  We have created a unique online platform that simplifies the process of finding the lowest energy rates and switching suppliers.

You can help commercial customers reap a significant savings on their energy costs while earning a true residual income.  Get paid on acquiring new clients and a monthly income on their energy usage.

You are simply offering your potential customers savings on their electrical energy bill.
The only cost is the time and energy needed to get started and maintain your business.  Become an Energy Consultant and work in the Deregulated Electricity Market-Part-time or Full Time.  You do not need to learn how to be an energy broker to make money.

Action on your part is the absolute ingredient that must be added, and that’s up to you. Your future is in your own hands.

We wish you success!

Need a Recession Proof Income?

There’s without a doubt about this: The economic recession that’s raging all over the United States and other countries around the globe, thanks to an absurd quantity of lay offs, massive amounts of home owners defaulting on their mortgages, an inflation rate that by and far crush current changes to earnings and also the resulting reduction in consumer investing has hit everybody hard.

Not to mention banks and entire countries are or will default at some time soon.

As people in America find it difficult to pay their bills and set enough off to ensure their retirement, companies everywhere take a significant hit in profits. In some way buying a brand new Ferrari just doesn’t look as appealing considering the impact that expense will have in your retirement account.

Unhealthy news is this factual trend doesn’t show any immediate signs and signals of seeing this recession conclude, particularly as gas prices are still soaring.

The good thing is that the economic decline isn’t necessarily a bad sign! Actually, if you’re a savvy investor and business proprietor a fiscal recession can really assist you to. Why? Because you will find some things which happen throughout an economic depression that, if used properly, will help you to be sure that your security and also the security of your loved ones could be stable years into the future. By developing a recession proof income on your own!

It appears as if any time you turn on the news there’s another story in regards to a plant that’s closing, another company that’s outsourcing their labor and reducing their employees along with an all too familiar type of people waiting in the unemployment office. Maybe you?

The things they don’t let you know about may be the 100′s of individuals behind the curtain who are benefitting out of this economic decline. Why would they? Great news doesn’t make great news!

I firmly believe we are likely to have our way of life and our futures tossed around just like a fart in a hurricane thanks to this fiscal recession. Every man, woman and child has the right to understand how to secure that future with the possibilities which are staring them in the face.

As individuals we can’t change a single thing that’s going on “out there”. What we can do is change the way we look at things and learn to seek out the hidden jewels of opportunity that can turn this economic recession into a gold mine for the savvy individual.

Opportunity presents itself in some very strange ways. There’s no way 2 years ago I thought I would be doing what I’m currently doing to generate my income. It is work, but I get out what I put in.

In closing there are right ways, and wrong ways to do things. When I was shown the right way to conduct my business, and generate a sustainable income, it really wasn’t work anymore! It is something I actually ENJOY!

If you want or need to generate an income, make some money part-time or full-time then you need to watch this video, and you can get started right away!
