Is Your Club being victimized by Lead Loss?

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Ever wonder why sales aren’t happening more quickly?  Ever wonder why even though inquiries are coming in about membership or other services your Club offers….sales do not follow?  Ever wonder why guests of members often express interest in your Club but wind up having their outing or meeting at another Club?  Your Club could be a victim of one or more of:

The 7 Deadly Sins of Lead Loss! 

To find out whether you or someone at your club are committing one of the 7 Deadly Sins, please honestly ask yourself if any of the following is happening at your Club:

1. A prospect calls to inquire about the Club, and the note, in all the daily business going on in the Club, gets misplaced.  Maybe the person will call back….maybe not.

2. A salesperson decides that a lead is dead and needs no follow up because the person inquired a few months ago but did not join the Club or book the event.

3. An events coordinator makes a decision that since the date the person requested their event on is already booked, there is no need to call him back and throws away the message.

4. Your staff falls into the “until trap” and decides that until… the new menu is finished/the pool is resurfaced/our greens are ready for play/or another amenity driven reason ……… it’s not a good idea to call the person back.

5. It is decided by the person responsible for sales that more research on the person and his needs is required before a return call can be made.

6. The Club’s salespeople are too busy creating the newsletter, planning the 4th of July Party, or doing other administrative tasks to get around to calling the prospect back in a timely manner.

7. Scripted, formalized sales training for all members of the sales team and other Club staff is not in place and there is no system in place to handle requests for information, so they go unnoticed.

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then you need a Marketing Commander website!  www.marketingcommander.com.  If you did not answer yes to any of the above questions, then you must already be a Legendary Partner!

All kidding aside, what does all this mean? It means that prospects that should be YOUR new Members, Outings, and Private Events are going to your competitors!

       If any of these things are happening at your Club you are wasting valuable leads that will result in sales for your Club if properly managed.  With Marketing Commander’s sales management tool you will never again have a lead fall through the cracks.  By directing all of your inquiries through our website technology, the right people, including the General Manager, gets an e-mail notification that there has been interest expressed in Membership, an Outing, a Private Event, or other products and services your Club provides.  At the same time, this information is automatically populated into the CRM/Sales Management tool of our website and can then be assigned and followed through to its logical conclusion.

What’s the next step?

Private Golf Courses In Orange County, Ca

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Orange County in Southern California has long been known as a mecca for golfers; the Mediterranean climate means golfing year-round. There are literally hundreds of public golf courses in the LA metro area, but private golf courses in Orange CA may have more to offer.

Now, we don’t want to “diss” public golf courses; many of these are fine facilities that don’t cost a lot to use. If you only play golf occasionally, this really may be a better option for you. However, for the true golf aficionado who is out on the green several times a week, it may very well be worth your while to join one of the fine private golf courses in Orange County, CA. The only other reason you might stick to public golf courses is if you get bored playing the same course all the time – but then, private golf courses in Orange County, CA offer more than just golf.

There’s also a world of golf beyond Orange County, if you’re willing to drive a bit, or live in another part of Southern California, such as Palm Desert or San Diego. Palm Desert California golf courses are located only about an hour east of the LA metro area, but offer a much different atmosphere. These private clubs (and there are several) are also more exclusive and less crowded; Palm Desert California golf courses are ideal for a weekend golf getaway. Of course,  Palm Desert California golf courses are only a small part of what this region has to offer in terms of golfing fun and relaxation.

Further south near San Diego is the Chula Vista Golf Course, located on Bonita Road. This particular one is a favorite with local golfers; the  Chula Vista Golf Course offers a full eighteen holes amidst some of the San Diego area’s most beautiful landscape, watered by its own water hazard, the Sweetwater River. This course is certain to keep you challenged!

Other San Diego country clubs include the La Jolla Country Club, a full service resort near the ocean; the La Jolla Beach & Tennis Club is right next door, and when you get hungry, the on-site cafe offers reasonably-priced meals that are comparable to higher-priced   San Diego country clubs.

Heading back north, Long Beach golf opportunities include three major courses and at least a dozen driving ranges and pro shops around the town. Bixby Village and Recreation Park are two Long Beach golf facilities that cater to beginners; if you are a novice or introducing the kids to the game, either of these places would be an excellent choice.

Public or private golf courses in Orange County CA and the surrounding area have much to offer players of all levels. The only issues to think about is how often you play, how much you want to spend and what other amenities you want; chances are there are several  private golf courses in Orange County CA that can meet your requirements.

Golf Tips From The Pros

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

When weekend golfers watch the pros hit unbelievable shots their amazed. The typical reaction is often “How do they do that?” It’s not magic. It’s solid fundamentals, plus hours and hours of practice and constant attention to their swings. Or course, the fact that most of the pros have been honing their swings since they were kids doesn’t hurt either.

Weekend golfers can learn a lot by studying the pros. They just need to look closely. Below we describe some golf tips derived from watching various players over the years. These mini golf lessons may not help you hit the long, straight drives, towering long irons, and delicate wedge shots the pros do. But they will improve your swing and cut strokes from your golf handicap.

Power and Accuracy In The Swing
Chip Beck isn’t nearly as famous as Tiger Woods. But he is a respected member of the Tour. Beck’s known for his accuracy off the tee. It stems primarily from an on-plane swing. He swings his arm up the plane rather than around his body. That keeps the club moving toward the target, generating accuracy. If you were to draw a line from his hands to the ground when he’s in his finish position, it would point exactly where the ball was at address—a sign that he swung up the plane.

Mark O’Meara is known for his power. He generates it by making a complete shoulder turn at the top of his swing. A right-hander, he keeps his back pointing at the target as long as he can before committing to his downswing. Keeping his back facing the target allows his right elbow to stay close to his body, dropping the club inside. This starts his shots to the target’s right. When combined with the proper clubhead release, this swing draws the ball back to the left. It’s a good way to eliminate a slice.

Brad Faxon is known for his putting. But he also excels at getting off the tee. The secret to his swing’s success is in his right elbow. A right-hander, he keeps the elbow bent and close to his right hip as he approaches impact. This delivers the club to the ball from the inside, eliminating pulls, pull-slices, and pop ups. In addition, Faxon keeps his right shoulder markedly lower than his left before impact. That keeps his head behind the ball. It also produces more leverage, which in turn increases clubhead speed.

Tips On The Downswing
Vijay Sing is among the world’s best golfers. He’s also among the world’s highest money winners annually. His classic swing combines precision and accuracy. It includes a narrow downswing with the clubface close to his left shoulder. A wide follow-through with the club and arms launched from his shoulder sockets also contributes to his classic swing. To create this swing, he keeps his arm and hands relaxed. His legs and hips power the downswing as the club’s weight lags behind until impact. Once the club is released, his arms follow the club’s wieght into the finish. This creates a free flowing swing.

Although he’s small, Shigeki Maruyama generates enough power to play with the big boys. How does he do it? He does it with solid mechanics. Most notably, he keeps his hands high at the top of his backswing. High hands expand the swing arc and increase clubhead speed. Meanwhile, a massive shoulder turn allows him to keep his head behind the ball. It also allows him to shift his weight properly and sets up a more powerful and athletic downswing. To better rotate his hips, Maruyama flares his right toe out at address.

Watch the pros whenever you can. It’s like getting a free golf instruction session. So use the opportunity wisely. It can provide valuable golf tips, like those discussed above, that can cut strokes from your golf handicap. They might even transform your game. So keep a close eye on the pros on Sundays.

Developing your Own Golf Style

Wednesday, June 30th, 2010

Some beginners think that all they have to do is mimic Singhâ??s or Tiger’s every move and voila! Instant golf success!

Unfortunately, it is not that easy.

Really, no two people ever swing at the ball in the same way. Because of your unique body build, you develop your own individual set of muscles. A method of golf used by one person whoâ??s of a different build and has developed a different set of muscles may not be of value to you. Golf will always be individual. Find a method of playing that produces results for you, and then go with it.

While it is often a waste of time to try to copy someone elseâ??s style or imitate someone else to a T, coaching by a professional can help in finding a fault that you have developed and getting suggestions on how to make corrections. But you want to hire someone who works with the natural swing you have rather than a teacher who tries to teach you something totally different.

If you hire a pro, make sure he is a top notch player. You do n0t just want him to stand there and watch you swing either. Have him actually show you how to get out of sand, mud, and water and the principles of some less obvious shots. Then you will really be getting value for your money!

When you are ready to play a game, and you are faced with a shot, make your decision on how you are going to do things. Do not be persuaded to change your methods every time you have a bad game.

Granted, some techniques really are fundamental principles and need to be observed. But it is impossible to make a shot and the whole time be thinking of seven or eight things like your grip, where your feet are, where the ball is, keep your eye on the ball, follow through, keep your head straight, etc.

Here are two basic tips to improve your individual game.

The one foundation you need no matter what stroke you are making, no matter what club you are playing with, is balance. You must keep balanced during the striking of the ball.

Another basic tip is to always keep your eye on the ball. Make sure any stance you take allows you to see the ball from every point of the stroke.

Take your time and develop your own methods that work for you. And when youâ??re doing well, be sure to give the kid who is trying to mimic you the advice above!

Adults Night Club is Online

Tuesday, June 29th, 2010

ADULTS NIGHT CLUB IS ONLINE

With Adult Entertainment taking such a hit with being tacky and sleazy, Adults Night Club was built as a refuge for adults seeking.. adult only entertainment

Over a year ago while sitting in front of the computer surfing the web for Adult entertainment when the idea was born to create a true one stop site just for adults only, after seeing how cheesy the sites looked. Sex in the entertainment industry exists and on most occasion tastefully shown, however on the internet it is displayed tacky and sleazy.

The creator of Adults Night Club being a Woodstock baby from the era of Jimi Hendrix,the Rolling Stones (when they were really raw!), Janis Joplin etc. had a broader vision. Create an environment where adult sex, love,and entertainment was free and open. Especially after witnessing Hugh Hefner of Playboy, at 80 years old ,still kicking,happy, and one BIG grin on his face with his 3 twenty something girlfriends on Larry King this past month, he wondered which side of the fence did he want to be on? With this in mind he decided to build entertainment sites for adults only with a unique model.

Only the hottest companies would be placed under one site. The idea was to create a place where not having money wasn’t always an option .The theme of the site is to have fun, therefore there are plenty of free galleries,free adult games, free adult chat,free dating,free movies,etc. for adults to have fun. There is a astrology and meditation section,golf section,advice section,for adult entertainment. The creator of the site stated, “We don’t advertise to kids, and make it a point to focus on adults only” ! So far there are over 7000 top adult entertainment like Playboy, Penthouse, Hustler, Adult friend finder, Girls Gone Wild, etc. This is indeed a true one stop for adults !
