Definition: A Rainmaker creates a significant amount of new business for a company. The Sales Lab Rainmaker Series is one rainmaker technique for technologists during the first 300 seconds (five minutes) of the monthly Capital Technology Management Hub Meeting. This is the handout for our December meeting.
At the beginning of this Rainmaker presentation in December, 3 of the 25 technology professionals indicated they had put up a Google Plus Business Page. At the end of the session, two more planned to put up a Plus Business Page next day – 20% adoption in five weeks of availability.
Google released Plus Pages just for business in November. Who cares – I got a website. CARE!
Be found – show your stuff – give some value – share your knowledge
- Searchable from anywhere on the web
- Pictures and videos to showcase your offerings
- Live links to pages, website, blog, catalog…the world
- Blogs and articles from you, resources from other thought leaders, and your community highlighted (list automatically updated)
- Small group video conference ability
