I had the opportunity to take a teleclass with John Hollner on Building Relationships Using the Internet. I had no prior knowledge of John when I signed up for the class except for a brief 1-time meeting at a networking function. Throughout the class, I was quite impresed at his knowledge of the subject matter and his effectivenesss in communicating it. He seemed genuinely interested in helping the class members grow our businesses and improve our skills. I gained very valuable information to help my business and that of my customers. John is a great asset to business owners.

John is very knowledgeable and practical when it comes to his recommendations. He does a great job asking the right questions and listening to the answers before making recommndations. His recommendations fit my budget and worked almost immediately! I would highly recommend Hollner Promotions to any young business looking to grow to the next level.

I have had the chance to see John Hollner speak on a number of occasions, so I knew that when I asked him to be our keynote speaker at a recent meeting of the American Business Women's Association, he would do a great job. Not only did he meet my expectations, but he exceeded them. His presentation was dynamic, insightful and packed with very practical points. The workshop John presented for us was on membership development and retention. John effectively shows how sales psychology applies to growing any organization, from a club to a company, and how everyone plays a role. He helps even those people that do not feel comfortable with being involved in membership development process feel more comfortable. In addition to being our speaker, he had a number of guests that he introduced to our organization. We were able to add new members directly as a result of his efforts to promote his presentation. If you need a speaker for your professional group, organization or company, I confidently and strongly recommend John Hollner. You won't be disappointed. President, Paulding Charter Chapter, ABWA

As a newer business owner, I had considered getting some assistance but didn't realize how early on I would need it. Meeting with John and Hollner Promotions has been very helpful, right from the free consultation. He was able to recognize certain traits in me that could have really impacted my ability to grow my business and helped me see them. He also provided helpful suggestions on how to position myself with clients and how to increase the impact of the company name with my package recipients. Within hours of meeting, he was able to connect me to some excellent contacts for my company. I am looking forward to continuing to work with Hollner Promotions and highly recommend that you call them. Having a resource with as many contacts and as much strategic business knowledge is something that every business owner, new or experienced, can benefit from. Do not let money be a factor to prevent you from calling him. What you learn in the free stategy session or maybe even in the consultation could be enough to help you earn the money to get into the program. Also, ask about the referral program that can get you into coaching for free.

I have known John Hollner and Hollner Promotions for over a year now and continue to learn helpful business strategies from him. I've had a number of chances to see John speak and can strongly recommend him as a trainer for your next event. He is a great storyteller and helps you think about the necessary yet unasked questions that every business owner needs to address. I recently participated in his tele-class seminar to learn an effective approach to teaching others about my 30+ years in construction. I found it to be very beneficial and well laid out. Surprisingly, I found the development and use of tele-classes easier than I thought it would be. John does a great job of simplifying complex concepts to something that is easy to understand and apply. If you need to educate your clients about why they should be using your services, I would ask John specifically about this program. John has been instrumental at helping me identify the types of businesses that I can strategically partner with, and has made a number of introductions for me. If you would like a strong ally in your corner, get to know John and Hollner Promotions. Take advantage of the free offers and see what they can do for your business or career this coming month.

Hollner Promotions has been very helpful to me as a new business owner. John taught me how to assess my sales process and how to approach the complex selling situation that my services require. He help me develop some direct marketing pieces to help potential customers raise their hand and identify their needs. He is a master of relationship building and showed me how to structure some strategic relationships to reduce my marketing costs and open up additional revenue streams. He is always sending me people to talk with for my business; it's almost like having another sale person on staff. The group strategy sessions are helpful to really dive deeper into the fundamentals behind the techniques he presents to make sure you can adopt it to your situation. As a sole proprietor, I barely have time to keep up with all of the educational aspects of my therapy business, let alone worrying about reading several books on sales and marketing. John shows only the techniques that I need that apply to my business, so I maximize my business educational time without having to search around and research numerous techniques that might not be as good a match. Starting during my free consultation, John is constantly providing me with fresh ideas and new ways of seeing things. He is a valuable business contact to know in the Atlanta area. Call him and find out for yourself.

As a frequent attendee of telephone seminars I recently had the opportunity to participate in one hosted by John Hollner of Hollner Promotions. Coincidentally, the seminar topic was "How to Effectively Host Telephone Seminars". In addition to being quite informative and touching on many things on which I had been thinking about for a while, I was very impressed by his ability to take complicated subjects and express them very clearly and concisely. It is often far more difficult to communicate through the telephone as compared to face to face. However, he has been able to master the skill of communicating with this medium extremely well. I highly recommend his services to businesses who are trying to determine an effective and efficient medium to communicate their message to a targeted, captive audience. Additionally, Mr. Hollner can assist business owners in finding additional opportunities in becoming more efficient in marketing themselves and delivering their unique message.

John Hollner and Hollner Promotions is a source of constant encouragement and empowerment. Before I started working with John directly, I had the opportunity to gain unique insights into business ownership during his regular business training tips in our business group. In my past roles, I never had to get involved with self-promotion. I was not very confident doing public speaking. John was instrumental in giving me peace of mind for a presentation that I had to make to promote my business. He also offered a unique perspective on the sales message that I needed to present as well, which enhanced the impact of the presentation. The effects have carried over, as now I no longer dread sharing my one minute commercial that we also worked on. He is currently helping keep me focused on the priorities I need to address for my weekly schedule to maintain consistency in my business. Additionally, he is developing a revenue generating marketing plan for my virtual support services business. If you need someone to help you think critically about your business, to motivate you to push on when things are tough and to be the creative department that you never had, call Hollner Promotions.

I have worked with John Hollner and Hollner Promotions for over a year now and he continues to show me new and creative ways to expand my business. Many of the other people in our networking groups have also benefited tremendously from his weekly training tips, articles and packages. He really helps you ask the questions that you never think to ask about how you are investing your marketing dollars and offers many low cost promotional suggestions to help stretch that budget. I particularly benefited from his Internet Research and Marketing package. He is also excellent at preparing customer education programs, knowing just what to say and how to position the material to increase sales. Working with Hollner Promotions is like having a board of directors for the small business owner. An extensive networker, John is constantly introducing me to new patients and strategic contacts, helping me see opportunities that I hadn't though of in the past. I'd highly recommend taking him up on his free consultation to see where your business can be enhanced.

What I like most about John Hollner and Hollner Promotions is his consistent efforts to reinforce the techniques that he teaches through constant feedback. He is always watching my presentations and offering critical feedback to increase their effectiveness. His work in the training and direct sales industries gives him a unique perspective that enables him to point out things I've never though of or been exposed to, in addition to reminding me about the importance of things that I usually overlook. He is also an excellent coach, helping me to remember my goals and strive toward them. On an almost weekly basis he is trying to introduce me to a new person or client or sending me some information that I can use in my marketing efforts. If you need to adopt an upline that will support you, give Hollner Promotions a call.
