AMMC 2019: On-Site Sales - Voices of Experience
On-Site Sales: Voices of Experience
On-site sales are critical to all our institutions. Your staff at the gate is an important part of your visitors’ positive first impression of your institution. Just as critical is their impact on membership. Typically, 40% to 60% (and in some cases, higher) of membership sales occur at the front door of institutions. This means your on-site sales team needs to be thoroughly prepared to maximize each encounter to promote, educate and sell memberships to people who might not otherwise consider it. In this panel, find out what these organizations do to make the most of each encounter and their best practices to convert visitors to members. We will cover topics such as key messaging; whether to offer a premium (and what works); whether to incentivize or not; and, lastly, we will share how each institution on the panel measures their results.
