Andrew Penman Hatchet Job

As the article by Andrew Penman which was in The Mirror a few months ago is still riding high in the rankings I would like to again put my viewpoint forward to defend myself against his extremely skewed arguments.

And maybe if he revisited the business and realised that such as Bristol Rovers are now a FlexKom partner and there are Flexkobis all around the UK he might just have second thoughts?!

The article can be found at Penman Checks Out Flexkom  and my response to it can be seen below:

I was contacted by e-mail from Mr Andrew Pennman in regards to the Flexkom Business, who is an Investigative Journalist for The Daily Mirror. In that e-mail he questioned me, my background and the Flexkom Business. I was more than willing to meet with him.

I had Flexkom provide a response in a statement to all of his questions regarding Flexkom. He did not report that I was fully open and wanted to meet with him. He uses the phrase “Too Good to be true” but work and effort are required in everything we do to create success. Once received, I arranged a meeting with Penman in Bradford. I firstly questioned him on his factual knowledge of how the Referral Businesses and the Direct Sales Industry worked and was quite shocked at his lack of knowledge in both Industries and had to explain to him how they worked, as I said I was shocked !!!

I openly discussed with him my background and bared my soul. Yes I have been in Referral Marketing for 25 years and Direct Sales for 15 years and have run my own conventional business for 30 years and to my knowledge Pennman has been in a JOB for his career.

My research on Andrew Pennman revealed that as an Investigative Journalist all I can find is complete negativity in all he reports. I do not deny that in some of these cases it has been for the common good and some people have been exposed for running scams. Indeed whilst I was with him I gave information on some unscrupulous schemes that are currently running in the UK and certainly hope that he will act upon this information.

The article that he printed would never have been positive no matter what because as we all know full well negative articles sell. So whilst many of his comments as usual were taken from context but I am not perturbed by the Article as it is simply his opinion on things. As a small business owner for 30 years my mission is to help the SME (Small Medium Enterprise) i.e. Family Businesses and Start Up companies to have a highly effective Mobile Marketing Platform to communicate with their customers and have a digital loyalty alongside. When Pennman asked me what if the shops don’t pay us I did say: “We are open to abuse, I do not dispute that.” but I followed that with ” Because I do not believe that the business owners as a whole are thieves ”

So the good news is that we can make that Article look nonsense as we move forward in the UK and the rest of the world. I have nothing against Andrew Pennman and I got on with him quite well. But for all the tea in China I could not be embroiled in the negative side of life and people as a JOB. I do recommend to Andrew that he Reads Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill as that book changed my life 30 years ago. I am more than happy to speak with anyone!!!!!

I wanted to give Andrew the FlexApp so that he can keep a check on our progress to have on his phone but when I checked he had a phone that ran on steam and admitted to me ” I am not into this technologies ” So I could not do that. He took a picture on this Phone and e-mailed me back saying it did not come out and requested that I send him another picture; that I did. I was more than fair with them and feel I did not get that back in return, but hey the British Press!!

Moving Forward With Flexkom

Looking at Flexkom, particularly from a UK perspective, it is clear that there have been some significant strides forward over the last few weeks and months and now it is all systems go. The business model is now fully operational, and GTM`s are beginning to see the fruits of their labours with commissions beginning to roll in (as long as they have ensured the Kobis they have opened have fully understood how to run the POS machines, how the system works and how it will benefit them both in the short and long term if they actively promote Flexkom to their customers). 

Looking at areas of the UK on the Flexkom App it is very encouraging to see so many Kobis in many of our major towns and cities, the initial breakthrough has been made and so it is now a lot easier task to promote Flexkom to other potential Kobis when they can clearly see that other businesses are coming on board. 

There are certain essential steps that all Global Team Members should be taking to ensure they get the fullest rewards from their Flexkom business: 

  • The more Kobis you open the more commissions you will earn which seems kind of obvious but the obvious is not always acted upon. Actively promote the business and you will reap the rewards.

  • Once you get a Kobi on board it is absolutely imperative to help him get up and running. Stay with him until he is fully conversant with his POS machine and remind him of the benefits of promoting Flexkom.

  • Help him promote Flexkom by giving him some support and giving out some Cards and/or Apps and ensuring the customers are fully informed of the uses and benefits.

  • Ensure the Kobi has enough promotional materials to help him promote his Flexkom business by using the fully compliant leaflets, window decals etc available.

  • After this initial support for the Kobi do not go away and leave them to their own devices but call on them (at least once a week initially) to ensure there are no problems and they are actively promoting the business. 

  • Always, always ask for referrals from your Kobis. These warm leads are worth 10 of any other type of lead so do everything in your power to encourage them to give you as many leads as they possibly can. 

  • If there are any issues at any time with either a POS or a FlexApp etc deal with them as swiftly as possible. People can cope with glitches as long as they know you are doing everything you can to help them. 

  • The more people you can get involved with the business the better as building a team is a much quicker way to building a large business from Flexkom  than just opening Kobis all by yourself.

  • Have a weekly plan of action and have targets to hit each week and each month.

  • Rinse and Repeat and most of all enjoy yourself!! Give yourself a big pat on the back for being a visionary, seeing an opportunity, taking action and helping your local business area improve their customer base and profits. 

Here is a very interesting and must see article about how most UK SME`s lack any sort of mobile presence. This of course can easily be remedied by inviting them to join Flexkom.

M-Commerce To Play Vital Role In UK Sales Over The Next Decade

The Economic Intelligence Unit has brought out a new report which is the result of predictions regarding online shopping up to 2022.

And it makes very interesting reading indeed. E-Commerce is predicted to be on the increase dramatically along with M-Commerce and S-Commerce (social media sales). It shows that online purchases will probably make up more than a third of all sales in the UK by 2022, which is quite astonishing. At present M-Commerce, E-Commerce and S-Commerce account for approximately 10% of all sales in the UK.

Chief retail analyst of the Economic Intelligence Unit, Jon Copestake, had this to say about the trend for online sales:

“The opportunities for retail over the next decade and beyond are enormous.” However, he also went on to say “But where the future markets will reside and the way in which we will buy goods will change dramatically. Retailers will need to evolve to adapt to this new landscape.”

IMPORTANT INFORMATION RE KOBI PAYMENT 25th April 2014

Message From Ian:

When you go to your Kobi’s, show them how easy it is for them to pay Flexkom the Cashback so that it turns Green on the Customers App:

Log into Kobi back office
Go To Finance
Go to Account

Go to Sales and confirm the payments by ticking those that are required and click Confirm Selected Sales
Then go to Confirmed Sales and it will show how much is to be paid to Flexkom. Continue and it takes you to the Pay by Card Option. Simply put the Card Details in and confirm and it is done.
The Kobi will get a statemant of the transactions so full records are there.

This Process takes 2 mins and the Kobi customers will in seconds see that their Flexmoney is Green AND CAN BE USED
Simples!! I ACTIVATED SOME TEST TRANSACTIONS TODAY and the GTM’s can see them as usable cash

So we have the full working system and things will go on improving all the time I am 100% sure of that.

YEEEESSSSSSSS!! As soon as the Kobi pays Flexkom the customers transaction is GREEN and more than that in your back office you see payments to YOU for people shopping at their local shops, and you get paid on that. It is a Vision I have had for 20 years and after many companies tried to do this Flexkom have succeeded. So proportionate to the number of Kobi’s you have brought on board you now have Residual Income For Life. FILL YOUR BOOTS YOU FLEXERS WE REALLY ARE GONNA ROCK!!

PS Don`t forget to order at least 1 Kobi Pack for each Kobi you have on board, to order

Check Out These Statistics To See The Growth Of Ecommerce & M-Commerce & The Huge Potential Of Flexkom

There has never been a better opportunity for retailers to promote their business to a wider audience, get more customers to their business and sell more of their products and services than there is at this moment in time. All the statistics point to a huge growth in Mobile Commerce and Ecommerce over the next weeks, months and years.

People are beginning to feel more comfortable shopping online, and with the smartphone taking on more and more importance in the lives of such a large percentage of the worlds population, it is only natural that they are now using their smartphones to purchase their products directly. 

Lets look at a few statistics, which have been taken from a number of sources:

  • Around 50% of online sales are expected to be made by mobile phone by the end of this year

  • Around 30% of shoppers now change their mind about purchasing an item in-store after researching on their mobile phone

  • Ecommerce spending is expected to reach the staggering total of £45 billion in the UK this year

  • An increase of 15% in online spending this year is expected

  • 1 in 5 people will place an immediate call to a business after viewing it on their smartphone

The major companies are now working hard to use all the latest digital technology available to them to promote their products and services. Many, such as M&S and Amazon, are re-designing their websites, particularly their mobile and ecommerce platforms, to reflect the new trend in mobile shopping. 

Take Starbucks for instance, they launched a promotional campaign called Tweet-A-Coffee.

 

Mobile Commerce

In 2011 Starbucks developed an App that would accept mobile payments, and would allow customers to connect Starbucks cards to the App, and then reload them through PayPal or a credit card. In this way customers could then pay for their coffees in Starbucks by opening up their App and holding up their phone to the cash register. This was way ahead of its time.   

They have now launched their Twitter campaign called Tweet-A-Coffee, which allows customers to buy a coffee for anyone on Twitter by tweeting @tweetacoffee along with the persons twitter handle. In doing this and connecting their Starbucks account to their Twitter account they can get a $5 gift card. This promotion is believed to have generated over $180,000 worth of sales in just a couple of months. 

So as you can see the big companies are running with the new technology at a fast pace, it is up to the small to medium retailers to keep pace by harnessing the global power of Flexkom and joining a worldwide shopping community that is going to be using all the latest digital technology to promote and grow all its Kobi partners businesses. 

If you are a retailer and want a low cost, simple way to harness all the latest technology and use it to your businesses advantage, then contact us today for more information.
