    From Mary Lanoue-Gers: I've been selling for the same group for 28 years - if I had to turn in a daily call report I would have quit years ago, We turn in a weekly pending report with info on progress on our target accounts, digital sales, spot and event pending and prospects - it's an online form that has our billing automatically updated by management (comptroller). Micro management is the worst thing you can do to a sales team. Weekly reports and a weekly meeting with direct supervisor (in my case my GSM) are OK - I have billed around $2.5 million for the past several years and never had to turn in a daily call log - use that for rookies if you need to micro manage - but leave the veterans alone. We know what we need to do to hit our goals and if we need help I can assure you that we will ask for it. Daily call reports are archaic!!

    If the client is open to a little humor, maybe they encourage you to have your "mind in the gutter," as in they want you thinking about going bowling. Or perhaps the woman who is upset with her man because his mind is always in the gutter...but it's because he always has bowling on the brain, rather than spending time with her. 
    Another idea, I've seen bowling alleys that promote joining a "Lousy Bowlers League" for people who enjoy bowling but just aren't very good. It's more about having fun than trying to get the best score.

    Can you tie in a charity event? our local Big Brothers Big Sisters hold a "bowl for kids" event every year - our stations host one of the nights (all local radio stations host one night) - maybe you could do something similar? but you could own it as an annual station event?
    the community enters a team (minimum team entry) - and then get pledges and all money goes to the charity. https://lethbridge.bigbrothersbigsisters.ca/event/bowl-kids-sake/
    Or come up with some kind of fun tournament where you can get new bowlers out to give it a try? and turn it into a station event / or even a fundraising event. i.e. Bowl for Babies, Bowl for (fire relief?) or whatever is relevant to your area. Turn it into a theme night - so some fun bowling things (like bowling backward, on one foot, etc.) - team who raises most money wins a prize, team with best costume, etc. etc. - prizes could be free games of bowling, movie passes, restaurant gift cards, maybe a grand prize draw to enter to win a pair of hot tickets to a concert?

    nope... not at all.  we use written and record testimonials from area business.  it's in their own words and is more factual and powerful than any quessed-a-mate!

    Sellers are not big on reporting and often feel threatened being ask to  qualify their work schedule but ....!  The sheet above from Rod is wonderful .. basically you need to know who they called on .. was it a drop in or confirmed appointment .. what the meeting produced .. the next step and a time table for the next step .. might also put a percentage on closing .. basically you need detail .. in short form .. of what the seller is doing daily .. all calls need to be logged .. phone .. email .. text .. personal .. etc.  Seller can turn in the report at the end of each day or weekly.  Sellers will not like it but you are entitled to know what a seller does with their time each day and how they intend to reach their goals.  Sellers should go into the month with no less than 70% of their monthly goal .. spend the first 2 weeks filling in the next 20% and then move on to the following month .. the remaining 10% will kinda fall in during the last two weeks of the month.  Do remember that 80% of a stations revenue is produced by 20% of your sales force! 
    Have a great day .. Tom Collins
