Start Here: Simple Ideas to Convince Your Boss
Idea #1: Play the “ideal outcome” game
Ask your boss, “what would be the ideal outcome for my marketing results next year?” If they say, double sales, or increase leads, reduce ad costs, or something similar then you’re in a great position.
Next, ask, “Are you willing to invest in my training so I can get us there?” If they say yes, you’re ready to present an annual membership in the Social Media Marketing Society as the solution.
Idea #2: Flip the script
If your boss is stuck on the numbers, position the Social Media Marketing Society as an investment instead.
With your annual Society membership, you’ll get immediate access to 140+ on-demand workshops, live monthly workshops, and an always-on supportive Facebook group full of marketers just like you.
So, take the annual membership price, divide it by 12 and ask: “Would you be willing to make a training investment in me for less than $XX per month?” If they say “yes,” then simply explain, “Great, we just need to pay upfront for the best price.”
Plus, if you purchase something that generates more value than the cost, it’s actually an investment, NOT an expense. Right?
