“GOOD RELATIONSHIPS WITH GOOD COMPANIES BUILD GOOD BUSINESS”

What are you doing?

FROM THE PRESIDENT

In reviewing well over a hundred shipments that were involved with the Bluefrieght issue for Platinim Plus, I was amazed.  These were shipments from almost a dozen members, from all over the world, and yet, they pretty much all had one thing in common.  Can you guess what that was?
For those who have been managing a P/L for some time, this is a no brainer.  The Gross profit margins were all paper thin.  Not one of the shipments produced more than $250 gross profit!
So, for those who understand the impact a low gross profit margin has on your overall business, we have an amazing gift for you.
Globalink is upgrading its referral program.  With a maximum of two emails, one to the company you wish to refer, and one to us, telling us you are referring them, we will now send you $500, if you choose to collect it immediately, or you can apply it to you renewal.
What would happen to your gross profits if you blend in a couple of referrals, that bring $500 with no labor, no overhead and basically no costs against it?  Better yet, there is no tracking, no liability, no regulations and no cash outlays.
How could this be any better, and now, with the Global Value Network open, the world is wide open.
Frankly given all the work, costs and risks it takes to move shipments, I can’t understand why more members don’t take advantage of this program.
As I said, it terms of gross profit, its a no brainer.

-Bill Siemens


Globalink Coaching is well underway. What we thought would happen is happening. Those members who bring consistent effort and focus to contacting members in the network, are seeing great results. Some of the other benefits from the coaching program have come in proving independent sales management input and insight into different elements of various members’ sales process.

You can sign up for Coaching anytime

EXTRAS!!

Of the eighty plus networks in our Industry, from the largest to the smallest, ONLY GLOBALINK, attended the ASSOCIATION MEETINGS CONFERENCE, THE MEETINGS SHOW, in London in June.   Globalink is always looking to upgrade and benchmark its approach against industry standards.  We are also on the look out for new ideas and new technologies that support our continual improvement approach.  Our motivation is to continue to build value for your company and your experience.   Please join me in thanking Mr. Paul Lockwood of Meridian Freight, a Globalink Advisory Board Member, who attended on behalf of our group.   We made some good contacts and came away with some new ideas to consider, some of which you will enjoy in our upcoming meeting, this next March in Danang, Vietnam.


FROM THE ADMIN

As we start our planning for the 2016 Worldwide Meeting in Danang, Vietnam, one of the highest priories in our office is to familiarize ourselves with the visa policies. We make ourselves, a local expert if you will as to what it will be required for you the member to attain your visa for the meeting. This year, with Vietnam we are still researching all of the options but feel that the simplest way to ensure that all of your paperwork is fully completed and processed through the embassy might be by a visa service. We will be learning more about this and what it entails and will surely keep you posted on the updates as they are received.
If you have any questions about the meeting, visas or anything else, please feel free to contact me at sschoelman@glnk.com
