(PRWEB UK) 5 February 2013
Despite fifteen new entrants in the Conservatory Outlet Network Sales Competition in 2012 seasoned campaigners Jim Oliver and Nick Trigg took the spoils and retained their crowns.
Jim Oliver, owner of Lincoln’s James Oliver Conservatories, packed some heavy punches throughout the year and his eventual victory was relatively emphatic as he notched combined sales of double glazing windows, doors and UPVC conservatories that were 6% higher than his impressive performance in 2011.
It was less comfortable for Mid Wales Windows’ Nick Trigg, with fierce competition coming from his counterparts at Clearview Home Improvements, but the man who also been shortlisted for FIT Show’s Sales Professional of the Year demonstrated exactly why by registering the most window and door only sales in the Top Dog competition.
There were other very notable performances as five of the top ten spots we occupied by employees of the Lancashire and Cheshire-based Clearview Home Improvements – one of whom sold more than £315k in July alone - and other entrants from the likes of Housemaster Home Improvements and Premier Windows & Conservatories picked up several monthly awards between January and December 2012.
With even more Conservatory Outlet Dealers and their sales forces set to join the competition this year, Top Dog 2013 has a new format which offers even more opportunities to compete and win Red Letter Day experiences, trophies and bragging rights. One, all inclusive league table will be operated on a points-based system with points awarded for the type of products sold, as well as the financial total of sales, and ‘monthly specials’ will be introduced to reward sales of particular product lines.
‘Top Dog started life three years ago as a fairly light hearted sales competition but it has evolved into a hotly contested and well supported network activity that we fund and coordinate,’ said Conservatory Outlet sales director Greg Kane.
The monthly results are privileged information that helps Conservatory Outlet Dealers benchmark against one another, and with over £500 worth of Red Letter Day experiences available every month the competition offers a real incentive to the sales men and women working on the front line.’
