Corvette Nation TV Show

With two of the people behind the Corvette Nation television show at odds in a lawsuit over a loan used to guarantee its air time, it appears the show may not return for a planned third season with its existing cast, if at all. In the lawsuit, which co-host Michael Brown filed in April against Howard Lipkint, the owner and developer of Corvette Nation, Brown asserts that a $75,000 loan that he made to Lipkint before the start of the show’s second season has yet to be repaid in full and that because Lipkint put Corvette Nation up as collateral for the loan, he should be relieved of ownership of the show. Lipkint, reached by telephone last week, admits that he failed to pay off the loan by the date the two agreed on, but said he never put the show up as collateral and will thus fight the lawsuit. “I admit there is money due, I’m not disputing that aspect, but there was no collateral required for this loan,” he said. “The series will go through for its third season.” Brown and Lipkint met after Brown’s documentary on one of Chip Miller’s Corvettes, “The Quest,” debuted in 2011. With several seven-minute segments on various Corvette collectors already filmed, Brown agreed to contribute to the first season of Corvette Nation, a show that co-host Bill Stephens created and that Lipkint developed for air on the cable network Velocity. Toward the end of that season, according to both Brown and Lipkint, the latter owed Velocity about $55,000 for air time under the time-buy agreement Lipkint made with the network. According to Lipkint, while Velocity does develop some of its own shows, the rest of its programming schedule is made up of programs that independent producers fund and create; the producers then pay Velocity for certain blocks of air time. “So we don’t get paid by the network,” Lipkint said. “The only way to stay on the air is by raising sponsor money. There are good and bad parts to the scenario. You have to raise all of your own money, but you also retain ownership of the show and can find other revenue streams.” He said that air time for the first season of Corvette Nation cost him between $200,000 and $250,000. Production costs rang up another $200,000. – See more at:

Accept “A-Grade” players

In This Video:
00:33 Breaking up the Sales Process
01:16 Everything you need to know about the Triage Call
02:15 When Things don’t Work Out

G’day Rockstar!

Taki Moore here from Coach Marketing Machine. Today I’m going to tell you a little secret about what we do at the end of a Triage Call to make sure we only accept “A-Grade” players.

Stay tuned! If you’re not running a Triage Call, you should – stay tuned, we’ll show you how to do it.

Breaking up the Sales Process

Alright, so let me break this down – In our four-part Black Belt sales process, you know the stuff we do with our clients, really there’s four key phases in the sales process. I want to, kind of, dig deep into the last step of part three so you need to get some context.

1. So, number one we have, education based marketing – could be a webinar or a live event or a video series, etc., which builds the need.

2. Then we have step two, a funnel filter.

What’s the funnel filter do?

  • It filters people in or out. It helps you work out, who’s worth talking to and who’s not!
    Typically, at the end of the webinar we’ll do a little piece of, you know, “you must be this tall to ride the ride”, like you do at Disneyland or Lunar Park – let people know who qualifies and who doesn’t.
  • And then we have the short questionnaire that people fill in. Those two steps get people excited and then three, filter some people in or out.

3. The next step is that we have a ten minute Triage Call and finally, a strategy session.

A strategy session is where the money is made and if you do it right, if you do this process, you’ll be converting around 90 to 94% of the people like we do and like many of our clients do as well, cool?

Everything you need to know about the Triage Call

Let’s talk about the Triage Call.

What’s the Triage Call’s job?

Well, we might have talked about this on a previous video – it’s really simple. Its job is to work out really quickly, who you want to work with and who you don’t! And at the end of the Triage Call, the last step is we’re going to show people the door.

So, the truth is, there are two doors we can show:

1. At the end of the Triage Call we can show people the door and say “Hey, we’re not a fit but I recommend you this” or;
2. You can open the door through to your strategy session

Does that make sense?

So, at the end of the Triage Call, you’re going to ask them a bunch of questions, work out what their top three problems and their impacts are, and then you’re in a place to choose. If you feel like you’re a really great match and this is someone you’d like to work with then you say, “Great, so I said before my job today was really simple – to ask you a bunch of questions and work out if or how I can help. The good news is, I eat problems like that for breakfast! So, the next step for us is to book us another call to talk about how.”

Then you can explain, position your strategy session and tell them how it’s going to work and you’ll let them know that either you’re going to email a link or your VA’s, cool?

When Things don’t Work Out

What if they’re not a good fit?

What if you had that kind of little voice in your head saying, “Stay away from this person, they sound bad!” or for whatever reason, you don’t want to work with this person because you only work with A-Grade players.

Well then you show them the door! “Hey, thanks so much for taking the time today. I said right at the start, my job is to ask you a bunch of questions and work out if or how I can help. Based on what you’ve told me, I’m not sure I’m the best guy for you or the best gal for you. You really want someone who can x, y and z and specialises in a, b and c.”

“That’s not me, but I reckoned, if I were in your shoes, the first person I’d check out is, you know, insert name here, because they can help you with x, y and z. What I’m going to do is I’m going to shoot you an email and introduce you both.”

What have you just done?

You’ve opened the door to people who’re great for you and you’ve shown the door to the people who aren’t! That way, you can bring you’re A-game to people who are world class! Does that make sense?

So, that’s this week’s Coach Marketing Tip.

What’s your number one secret for filtering people in or out in a sales process?

Leave me a comment below – let’s continue the conversation down there.

Take good care.

Top 10 RV Selling Tips

10. Clear away personal items from your rig to show off how much space it has. Buyers will be much better able to visualize how they will use the space, which will increase their interest.

9. Include photos with your listing to show buyers how great your rig is and pique their interest in seeing it in person.

8. Set a realistic sale price for the quality of your rig within local market ranges. If your list price is too high, some buyers may walk away rather than haggle with you.

7. Take out ads in several places: local newspaper, online classifieds, community bulletin boards, etc. The greater the exposure the more potential buyers you’ll have.

6. Clean your rig until it sparkles-inside and out. A detailed once-over can get you top dollar when you rig looks new again. Consider hiring a professional cleaning service if the task seems overwhelming.

5. Use an escrow firm to exchange goods between you and the buyer to avoid scams.

4. Pick a spot to display your RV for interested buyers to take a peek. Main roads and large parking lots are great for pass-by traffic. Interested parties can then call you to check out the interior.

3. Take your RV to a qualified RV mechanic to check for any needed repairs. Fixing minor problems can get you a higher sale price.

2. Make sure your contact information is correct and that you are readily available to take inquiries. Buyers may need to reach you “after hours”. Don’t forget to include your email address, and check for new messages daily.

1. Advertise special features or any extra equipment as a package deal. It could be that extra perk that gets buyers drooling-and willing to pay a little more for your RV

Free & Non Exclusive Listings

Hi,

I have a network of buyers that is both Nationwide and International, and we have new buyers on a daily basis.

If it meets all the requirements of a buyer I’m currently speaking with, do you mind if I get back to you?

Do we have some room on price?
If the buyer I’m thinking of is not interested, I have a few others in mind. Also, I’ll upload in my system, in case someone else in my network has a buyer.
I’ll get back with you if he’s interested, otherwise, I’ll call when I have another buyer.
If you sell it in the meantime, I’d appreciate it if you let me know. It sure is a great boat, I have no doubt we can find you a buyer who will agree with us!
If I need more pics or info, I will give you a call.
Daniella
