“GOOD RELATIONSHIPS WITH GOOD COMPANIES BUILD GOOD BUSINESS”

What are you doing?

FROM THE PRESIDENT

IF YOU’RE TALKING TO YOUR FRIENDS/ COLLEAGUES ABOUT OUR NETWORKS…….

Several of you have shared with us that you are talking with your friends and colleagues about our networks, GLOBALINK and GLOBAL VALUE.  This of course makes good sense, since a conversation or two, or an email or two, can result in a profit contribution to you company which is 10 or 20 timesmore than some of the profits made on average shipments!   Of course,

I’m talking about our referral program, which nets your company $500.00 every time one of your referrals joins either group.

We sell our networks every day, and to do that, we have to distinguish them for all the rest.  I would like to share a few of these points with you.

Please check with any of our long time members for verification of these points.

First and foremost, we are committed to quality over quantity.    We believe our approach builds business more effectively than many of the others.  Why?  Because we limit membership to companies that are well established, we consistently enforce our standards, our customer service is very responsive, and we continually look to add value.  What we know works for sure is putting quality companies together in smaller groups works, and jamming thousands of people in a room doesn’t work very well at all.   We are the only network that has gone to the expense and time to create a quality ranking tool, in the industry.  We put our money where our commitment lies.

We’ve proven our model as successful now for over 15 years, we’re not going anywhere.  And, we’ve stood by our model, haven’t changed it, just refined it.

We support our members and have helped several over the years with untangling issues or situations.  We don’t have payment issues that remain unresolved of any kind.

We see our role as much more than a speed dating service.  We’ve attended other groups that call a meeting one big one on one event.   While we appreciate the value of ONE on ONE MEETINGS, we are engaged with issues facing all the members, like our proactive approach to the issues surrounding AMAZON, as well as highlighting various risks such as the FMC’s current posture towards fines.   We are committed to serving, informing and alerting the group as to issues affecting all of us.  We take a leadership role on behalf of the group.

And, we put on great annual meetings, as verified by our member surveys.

We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished together, and having a friend or colleague join, has never been a disappointment.

We’re here for you, and your friends and colleagues to help them make a win-win decision.

SALES UPDATES

The Hour Long Phone Call

This week I was kept on the phone for over an hour while a prospect I had called talked non-stop about how worried he was that companies like Amazon and Hapag Lloyd are making moves in the logistics industry, and how independent forwarders don’t stand a chance.  But when I offered up the network as a solution, and a way to compete with these large companies, he didn’t want to hear it.  Huh?

There are so many networks out there today, and it seems to me that most companies are so desensitized that they automatically assume that all networks are created equal.  But, as all of you now, you can waste plenty of money on a network that doesn’t offer value.  I can’t imagine there is another network that is half as concerned as we are in facilitating a discussion among our members regarding a way to adapt and grow with the industry…we have even gone as far as organizing a regional meeting!

Don’t forget to let all referrals and all of your trading partners know about this value, about how Globalink exceeds other networks, and let’s continue to grow the network together!

I am here to assist you: willsiemens@glnk.com

FROM THE ADMIN

 

As we enter the post meeting season and find ourselves looking for ways to improve for the next year, the staff at Globalink has been working hard together to bring new ideas to the table. To offer new value to the network and to improve upon what we see working. Many of these ideas and points of value have derived from conversations with you, the members that they impact.

So, I am asking for your help, for your feedback, for your opinions; I know for those of you that attended the meeting you heard us asking you what we can do better and we listened and you will see many of these ideas and values being implemented into the network in the weeks and months to come. I am asking for more. What else do you want to see in the network? Do you want to see something changed about our meeting structure or the processes? Do you have suggestions for building relationships? How does your company approach this that seems to be working for you?

I would love to schedule a call with you if that works better. I want to hear your ideas and am ready to listen.
