Monetize Your Network!
You have worked hard, spent untold hours planning, and constructing your FTTX network, now the fun begins. A critical part of supporting the business plan and financial model is execution of the marketing and sales plan. This fast paced, interactive and fun workshop will explore market demand, market supply, how survey and market study results drive marketing decisions, what part does branding, advertising and community engage play in a successful market launch? Go Big or Go Home? What makes for a great brand? How does interaction with installation, customer service and support affect market outcomes? How many people should be in the marketing and sales department? How to build a master schedule. Presales, what to do and not do. Business customers, how do they differ from residential customers? These and many other topics will be explored and examined all we need now is YOU!
