Technology Sales: Upselling Your Customers Using ABM
ABM or account-based marketing is one of the most effective ways of delivering personalized messages to prospects
"When combined with upselling, it can create a powerful avenue to supercharge your sales.

From creating target lists to automation, we show you how you can harness the power of ABM to upsell B2B tech products.

The Beauty of ABM in Upselling

vBeersPlus @ General Provision Downtown Ft. Lauderdale
General Provision Downtown - Fort Lauderdale - 2nd Wednesdays of the Month

Monthly networking for Enterprise IT Professionals at a private co-working space with food, beer, wine and soft drinks provided by sponsors

Spend some quality time with a wide variety of IT professionals in a relaxed, private environment. Arrive at your convenience after 5:30PM. People will be around until 8:30PM.

We will short presentations starting at 7PM. Three minutes max. per presentation, and a maximum of 30 minutes.

Note that GP has two locations, one in the Fort Lauderdale's Art and Tech district (GP FATVillage) and the other in the middle of renovation of downtown Ft. Lauderdale, right next to Autonation HQ.

Recommend parking at the "Government Center Parking Garage" on SW 2nd St., next to the train tracks that are now used by the Brightline trains. Parking in this lot is $5 for the evening and is less than a block away from GP Downtown.

Sponsorships Available

We look for sponsors to deliver short commercial talks during vBeersPlus. The idea is for a sponsor to describe an IT problem such that people will relate to it then briefly describe the sponsor's solution. Attendees will be able to visit the sponsor's table, after the presentations, to discuss the presented solution.

Sponsorship fee is $300 for one event and include promotions in the email and social media that will reach 15,000+ South Florida IT professionals.

Non-profit groups are also welcome to "pitch" their group in a 3 minute or less talk. (no charge)

If you are interested in sponsoring please email sales@itnewsandevents.com or call/text Lauren McLaughlin for details at (954) 729 9130.

My Own CEO Fired Me
I wasn't good enough yet. I was focused on too many things and my insecurities were getting the best of me
Kelly Merbler writes, "I had just started my own organization and I was being overly critical of everything. I was trying to be good at things that I was never going to be above average at completing. The process of attempting to do those things was so frustrating to me!

I was the boss of my own organization and I was just trying to keep my head above water after walking away from my career of twenty-one years. I had so much pressure to do so many things quickly while trying to overcome the fear of possibly failing. I blamed myself for every error made and became highly critical of every mistake that I had made in my entrepreneurial journey..."
