Halloween Golf Update

Every golfer’s brain is full of ghosts, ogres and demons. The ghosts have names like “I’ve Always Done It this Way”…. “I Can’t Do That Because I’ve Never Done That And That’s Not The Way It’s Done”.
The ghosts are in active conspiracy to make the future the past.The ogres are the unwilling, the uncooperative, the incompetent, the uninformed and ignorant who sabotage change and progress at every opportunity.The demons are our own fears, doubts, insecurities and anxieties, our worries about what others will think of us if we do ‘x’, our hostage-like separation anxiety over firing our playing partners who provide lousy golf advice, the IDIOT club fitter who also tries to be a swing position expert, our fearful preference for what we have even if it is not working well or making us happy vs. a different path with uncertain outcome.
 
Most golf pros that I know and work with are fearless even to a fault, most ordinary golfers are fearful to fault.
It reminds of General Schwarzkopf’s insistence that making a bad decision and plowing ahead implementing it is better than making no decision at all, because it is usually easier to change course than to get started.
He said “usually”; he didn’t say “always.” And hardly anything is “always” true. Which connects to a particular aspect of most golf pro’s fearlessness: we are quite willing to take a lot of lumps, to suffer losses and embarrassment and occasional public flogging in order to get what we want, and quick to rebound from our mis-steps.
Egg on our faces just doesn’t scare us. Freddie on the other hand… Freddy Krueger

Weird E-mail Trick Gets You Free Golf Insight

This Weird E-mail Trick Gets

 

You Golf Insight For Free

 

I’ll get back to the free golf insight in a moment but I have a short story to tell first.

With the rain storm that came in the other day my clients were rescheduled and it gave me some time to reflect on the year. And what a good year it has been. Our golf lesson business is up 176% to date compared to 2008 and profits are up 856% to date. But of greater importance to you I am implementing a new program where you can get FREE golf insight and help with your marketing.

Earlier this year I had a local company employ my services to consult with them and help them increase their profits just as I had increased our own. And in the short time we worked together (I only offered them a few hours per month so I could continue to teach golf full time) during the most challenging time since the 1970’s and early 80’s, their sales were up 10%. And they are in the luxury goods market none the less! Additionally, throughout the summer I continually had clients complimenting our marketing and requesting assistance with their own marketing.

So I faced a dilemma — Take time away from assisting my clients with their golf needs to help them with their marketing needs, or ignore their requests all together. After some reflection I found a solution! This solution allows me to remain your full time golf instructor and consult with your business without taking any time away from golf. Let me introduce you to the:

 

GET FREE GOLF INSIGHT AND

 

HELP WITH

 

YOUR MARKETING PROGRAM

This program is exclusively devoted to helping you get better at golf and increase your ROI from marketing dollars so you can afford to play even more golf!

Here is how the whole thing works.

1. Schedule your lunch with Scott Seifferlein at The Highlands any day Monday through Friday*.

2. Send an e-mail to info@grandrapidsgolflesson.com with a preview of materials you would like to discuss over lunch.

3. Talk golf or marketing whichever you prefer.

4. Buy lunch and implement the strategies you learn immediately after lunch.

*lunches will begin at 2 minutes after the hour and end promptly at 5 minutes before the next hour. (That’s 53 minutes for the mathematically challenged)

 

Why Am I Doing This?

Simple.

1. We have lunch every day. We ought to make it productive.

2. The more you think about golf and learn new strategies the better you will play.

3. The more efficient your marketing and sales become the more time and money you will have to play golf.

Here’s What West Michigan

 

Businesses Say About

 

Scott Seifferlein’s Marketing

 

“Scott Seifferlein’s dynamic approach to marketing and proven willingness to “think outside the box” has brought us significantly improved results in 2009. In this challenging market, our golf dues are up almost 10% in comparison to 2008 and our other membership dues (social and dining) are up 5%. Scott brings to the table many ideas and more importantly, ways to incorporate those ideas, to help ensure successful results. I’d also have to add that many of his ideas would never have been considered by myself or our Marketing Committee. Thanks, Scott, for your energy and unique approach to a very challenging matter.”
