ESA Group Searches for Outstanding Referral Programs
Sales & Marketing Professionals Will Salute Winners on June 27 at ESX Nashville
Irving, Texas (March 7, 2012) — An effective referral program is a cornerstone of business growth for security dealers and installers of all sizes. This year, the Electronic Security Association (ESA) Sales & Marketing Professionals (SMP) group will honor dealers who have taken their referral programs to the highest levels of performance.
SMP will present the Referral Program Best Practice Awards, which will recognize dealers who are poised to reap the benefits of their dynamic personal referral and peer-to-peer marketing efforts. Winners will be announced on June 27 on the ESXperience stage at the Electronic Security Expo (ESX) in Nashville, and will also be featured in ESA publications.
Entrants will be divided into three categories of dealers and installers: small, with $2.5 million or less in annual sales; medium, with more than $2.5 million up to $5 million in sales; and large, with more than $5 million. Winners will receive an award and will also be featured in ESA publications.
Dealers that have a successful referral program should submit a summary, in 500 words or less, describing your company’s efforts. Upon review, you may be contacted by SMP Chairs for additional information and supporting materials. The entry form, as well as additional details, can be found online at www.ESAweb.org/SMPreferral.
