Grapevine, Texas - MERA, the Mobile Electronics Retailers Association, has negotiated a discounted price for member dealers to take advantage of Ascend Marketing's marketing-coaching services.
Ascend's marketing coaching program is a four- to six-month 16-session program in which enrollees receive one-on-one marketing coaching. The program also includes group instruction via teleconference every two weeks and access to turnkey marketing programs that retailers can implement.
Ascend Marketing offers a 400-precent ROI guarantee in which tuition is refunded if a dealer doesn't achieve an ROI of four times the program cost after good-faith implementation of the program for a year, MERA said.
Ascend Marketing was founded by speaker and business coach Jim Ackerman. His company produces seminars, books and other content focused on increasing retail profitability and efficiency. Ackerman gave the keynote presentation on the opening day of MERA's KnowledgeFest 2011 trade show this past weekend.
