November Daisy Dab winner announced!

Jess Turner from NSW takes out the December Daisy DAB competition winning a cool Parrot Drone and $200 worth of pool supplies from Splash’s Pools Tuggerah!

Jess went above and beyond submitting multiple very creative entries and getting over 140 votes too for her efforts. At the presentation of her prizes at Splash’s, Jess said that she had a heap of fun with this because she loved photography and that our Daisy challenges are a great avenue to explore more photography. It gave her the challenge to set up her photos and videos.

Jess’s dad, John, said that she had a lot of fun and put a lot of time and effort into the entries so great for her to win a prize from our local pool shop.

Andrew Clubb from Splash’s Pools Tuggerah said “how good is Jess winning a Daisy challenge twice! What are the chances! Regular customers have had a heap of fun with the photos. Thanks Daisy for having a challenge that helps people have fun around a pool…because that is what pools are all about, fun!”

Here’s Lee Schatkowski from Daisy showing Jess how to fly the drone…. We think you need to take it out of the box first Lee!!

What’s Trending in Backyards

When style meets innovation

Gone are the days where pool covers and rollers only came in one colour and style option, and too bad if they didn’t suit your backyard!

For over 30 years, Daisy Pool Covers and Rollers have led the industry by constantly innovating with new, on-trend products that fit the bill for Aussie backyards.

With a focus on design and style, we’ve come a long way from the standard white roller and blue pool covers. Aussie families don’t have to compromise their stylish backyards if they want a pool cover or roller.  Today, Daisy has so many options in colour, style, and shape – you can essentially customise your roller and cover to your own back yard!

For example, Daisy’s recently released hot new stainless steel 316ST Rollers are designed to complement the modern pool setting of any backyard. Then of course there is the newly released Daisy Under Bench Roller. It is practical with its multiple uses – a seat and a roller – adding style poolside and is available in three modern colours in aluminium, wood-look finishes. Combined with a titanium blue or green pool cover and well, we’ve got style!

Daisy is constantly reinventing the wheel and looking at new styles and trends that will transform your backyard, lifestyle and the way your entertain.  Explore our website and keep coming back for something new – we love our Daisy but we’re biased!

Buying and Selling a Daisy Pool Cover Should be Easy!

Quote & Close = Selling More!

When a customer asks “how much will a pool cover cost”, what they really mean is “can I talk to you about a pool cover for my pool?”

Rather than jump into attempting to quote and then trying to close the sale just on price, here are some suggestions:

1. ASK QUESTIONS

Ask them what they want from a pool cover? Is it to save water (evaporation control), keep their pool clean or to warm the water? By asking these questions, you’re establishing yourself as a Daisy Expert. As soon as they reply, you’re engaging them in a dialogue and starting to build a trusted relationship.

2. BE THE EXPERT

Start providing some advice – use all the tools we have on the Daisy website in our FAQs and more! If you need any training, just let us know – we’re here to help.

3. START THE QUOTE

Pricing up a quote is as simple as multiplying the square meters of the pool by the pool cover m2 price.

Daisy has made quoting pool covers easy. Every pool cover has a square meter price.

a). Simply measure the length and width of the pool. Then multiply together to get the square meters (length x width = m2)

Example:

8.2m long pool by 3.9m wide. The cover they want is the 525 Blue at $17.50 / m2.

(8.2 x 3.9 = 31.98m2 x $17.50 = $559.65)

b). Step area? If the pool has steps, here’s another opportunity to show your expertise. Here are some tips and FAQs on how to measure step areas.

Mobile? We all have a mobile device that can access the internet. Simply log into the Daisy website to get the latest retail pricing using the quote calculator.

Pop in the pool measurements, select what you want and the tool will calculate the recommended retail price immediately.

4. ASK FOR THE SALE

Don’t forget this! Once you have done all the hard work and designed the solution and price for the customer, ask for the sale!

Some simple questions:

  • What colour do you want? Is it the 525B or Titanium Blue you wanted?
  • Do you want to install this yourself or would you like me to do it?
  • Would you like me to place the order for the cover and roller now?

Oh and add on if you can – what sort of décor is your backyard? Is it modern or contemporary? If modern, why not sell them a 316ST stainless steel roller or compact, why not a UBR which is a great dual purpose product!

The close: A customer is just as busy as you are. The more you can make it easy for them, the easier it will be to close the sale.

Remember, don’t let them walk out the door saying that they’ll get back to you. If they do, try and get their contact details and follow up!

If you need help with a tricky quote or would like further training on measure, install or sales contact your local Daisy Area Manager or email us.
