LBS 2nd Tuesday Webinar

Tuesday, January 12, 2021 Webinar
11am-12am Central; 10am-11am Mountain

Providing Broadcast and Digital
Magic in Today’s Disenchanted World
Presented by:  Gary Moore, LBS President

Your clients and prospects are looking ahead and hoping for days where business gets back
to normal… whatever “normal” is and will be. As broadcast sellers, we have never had an
opportunity like this one to lead and influence the rebuilding of LOCAL business owners’
professional lives!
Through your own recent experience, you know full well that most advertisers are
determined to forge ahead, many are in survival mode, some are pessimistic, a few have
become unlovable, and a couple of others are now just outright rude. Your entire sales team
from your managers to career sellers to new reps will benefit from this discussion on how to
best serve your LOCAL clients no matter their outlook and attitude!
