The Daisy Sales Process – New Sales Tool

We have recently developed a handy cheat sheet to remind you to use opening questions with customers, in conjunction with last month’s “Selling Ideas and Techniques”. This document will help by giving you some examples of questions to use to get the conversation around pool covers and rollers started.

The Daisy Sales Process is an easy, four point reminder of the process of selling a Daisy Pool Cover or Roller so you can maximise your sales penetration and profits.

Click here to view and download the Daisy Sales Process document.

If you want to know more on selling Daisy Pool Covers or selling techniques, please call your local Daisy area manager Shannon, Lee, John or the admin team via email or 1300 55 18 11.

 

 

What is your Cover to Roller Ratio?

Daisy is available to have a confidential conversation about what your cover to roller ratio is in your store sales. We can let you know if you are ahead of the industry or if there is an opportunity for us to work with you to sell more rollers, over covers and refit kits.

When we look at your sales data we can show you if there is any opportunity for more pool roller sales or more refit kit and over cover sales. Continuing on from the Daisy Sales Process document, this is to not only make sure you are maximising every opportunity but to also ensure your customer is getting everything they need for a great pool cover buying experience.

Imagine how hard it is to get a pool cover off the pool without a roller? Believe it or not, there are plenty of retailers or staff that decide a roller may be too expensive or not worth it so they don’t offer a roller solution to the customer, they only sell the pool cover. Now, the customer may end up unhappy with their purchase because they were not even offered a solution to make using their new pool cover easy.

A pool cover is what we want, a pool cover roller is what we need. The same goes for those who have an existing roller; putting a new pool cover onto a pool roller without a refit kit is pretty difficult, especially when a new refit kit is available for only $27.20.

While you are talking to the pool owner about their existing pool roller, have a look at their over cover. Hold it up to the light, and if you can see anything through it, especially where the fold is, they will need a new over cover to protect the pool cover from the sun. An over cover will normally last up to two pool covers, so it’s always good to ask the pool owner when they bought their last over cover.

Using the old adage of “Do yo want fries with that?” means you are not only making more sales, but you are looking after your customers.

The Daisy Pool Covers team are here to help you maximise your pool cover and roller opportunities, so please ask your Daisy Area Manager or contact our team for more information.

Summer Pay Back Campaign 2020

Daisy Pool Covers are kicking off our Summer 2020 Campaign: Summer Pay Back.

Summer Pay Back launched in 2019 with great success for our customers, and we awarded six winners over the spring/summer period who received the cost of their pool cover back!

This campaign is an eye-catching, easy to implement way to drive consumers, and ultimately sales, to your stores during the spring/summer period.

Customers who purchase a Daisy Pool Cover from October 2019 to February 2020 will go in the draw to win their purchase back once they have registered their warranty, to the value of $1,000.

The mechanics of this promotion are as follows:

  • Consumer purchases a Daisy Pool Cover
  • They go to daisypoolcover.com.au/payback
  • They enter their name and email on this page to be taken to the Daisy Register Warranty Page
  • One National winner drawn each month (five winners total)

You will receive a pad of A5 flyers to hand out to consumers when they purchase a Daisy cover from you.

This campaign is being supported across the country by digital marketing including social media and display advertising.

Thank you for supporting this summer promotion.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us for any further information.

Below Ground Box Winder Special

From now until Christmas, Daisy are running a Below Ground Box upgrade AND a FREE pool cover with all BGB purchases through your stores!

We have also released a BGB Winder upgrade. There was an issue with our winder mechanism on larger pools so we have fixed it.

The revolutionary new Vertical Winder is now mounted at the maximum BGB width, giving you not only more roller tube to the box size (there is now an extra 200mm of roller tube in the box), but also a vertical winder that has a cast stainless drive gear that is held into the drive gear mesh with the specially designed mounting.

The added advantage of the new Vertical Winder is the ability to maximise roller tube length as well as making the winder side totally reversible from end to end simply by removing 4 bolts and spinning the roller to change drive sides.

 

So, now the simple installation of digging a trench and installing the BGB just got easier! No need to concrete in and no need to worry about drive ends, just order the BGB needed and Daisy will quickly dispatch the unit to you.

Stock is planned to be held in both Perth and Sydney factories for immediate dispatch once ordered.

Special offer for all BGB orders until Christmas: Free 400B pool cover with every BGB ordered!

Simply order the BGB needed with the pool cover size and Daisy will charge the BGB and supply the pool cover at no charge.

Contact your Daisy Representative for more information, or call us on 1300 55 18 51

Daisy Completes New SPASA Training

Getting the best out of our team to give you the best service!

 

Daisy has always believed in constant and consistent advertising and marketing, and this is the bit you see. We also have a solid commitment to constant product and staff development.

The Daisy sales team continually embarks on personal development and training to keep motivated and up to date so we can deliver better results for our trade customers.

Daisy recently turned to our peak industry body that is our industry RTO to design a tailored Sales delivery module.

Wednesday 19th June saw a 7-hour training module delivered by Luke from SPASA Australia and I (Derek) have to highly compliment Luke and SPASA Australia for such good content. The whole team got so much industry related training that cut through the theory to put us in location at the coal face, giving us better outcomes for our customers.

I can’t recommend this enough, SPASA Australia delivers positive, real-life training that is relevant.

With further SPASA Australia development modules coming, all of us at Daisy are looking forward to further learning to help you more.

SPASA and Daisy are always looking to help customers from domestic pool shops, to builder and commercial markets, helping them to sell more through positive experiences and real training in B2B2C.

We have uncovered many more techniques, hints and pieces of advice to help you with your customers and Daisy products.

Here at Daisy, we are all pumped, looking forward to helping you expand your markets and helping you sell more. We may have just started our ‘off season’ but the Daisy team is flat out preparing for the season, just wait to see what we have in store for you!

It’s going to be a great season for us all.

Under Bench Rollers’ Growth Continues

Our installation teams have been so busy with Under Bench Rollers, this product just continues to grow!

The UBRs have been so popular at SPASA Pool, Spa and Outdoor Living Expos around the country and our teams are getting asked about them at every show, which is turning into huge growth for the product.

From commercial to domestic, we have been installing custom under bench rollers as well as the full colour range including a new install of a Charcoal Shimmer UBR.

What we have found chatting to people is that those who are building a new pool tend to look at the Below Ground Box (BGB) first because they are doing major works around the pool before paving being installed. People with an existing pool usually are looking at the Under Bench Roller (UBR) to get some poolside seating in and around the pool area while hiding the roller system. This has been perfect for those with limited space around the pool. The UBRs are less prone to scratching and have a wider range of colours to suit the pool owner’s backyard.

If you need more information or a refresher on the UBR range, contact your Daisy Representative or click here to contact us, we’re happy to help!

 

Water Restrictions for Sydney Commence June 1

Water restrictions will be enforced in Sydney on June 1st for the first time in a decade.

We have the following information from SPASA NSW on the water restrictions announced by the State Government:

The Premier of NSW has announced Level 1 Water Restrictions will commence June 1 under the state’s Metropolitan Water Plan even as the Sydney Desalination Plant ramps up towards full capacity.

Sydney Water have said the city’s dams have fallen faster over the past two years than during the Millennium Drought, with inflows at levels not seen since the 1940s.

Water restrictions will apply to everyone in Sydney, the Blue Mountains and the Illawarra.  This includes both residents and businesses.

SPASA has been working hard with Sydney Water to ensure they have a better understanding of how the swimming pool and spa industry operates as well as advocate to limit the impact on swimming pool and spa businesses and owners.

Click here for the Ministerial Release.

Level 1 water restrictions:

  • You can’t leave a hose unattended, unless you are topping up a pool
  • You will need a permit to fill a new or renovated pool or spa greater than 10,000 litres. Having a pool cover that is *endorsed by the Swimming Pool and Spa Association of Australia (SPASA) is a condition of the permit 
  • Your hose must have a trigger nozzle, wand or other attachment with an instant on-off mechanism, and you need to water your lawns and gardens before 10am or after 4pm
  • The use of sprinklers and watering systems is not permitted, except for drip irrigation systems or automated watering systems with controllers that automatically adjust watering details based on changing soil moisture or weather conditions
  • Hosing hard surfaces like paths and driveways is not permitted. However, you can always spot clean areas for health and safety reasons, or in an emergency
  • You can only wash vehicles, boats and buildings with a bucket, a hose fitted with a trigger nozzle or high-pressure cleaning equipment

* Endorsed means under SPASA’s Climate Care Certified program.

Level 1 exclusions:

Exclusions are a list of water sources and uses where restrictions don’t apply. There is no need to apply for these, and they available to everyone. The following are excluded from the restrictions:

  • Topping up swimming pools to replace water lost through normal use, including evaporation
  • Recycled water (from non-potable pipework)
  • Greywater
  • Bore water and water taken from rivers
  • Rainwater (as long as the tank/dam isn’t topped up from, or switched to, the drinking water supply)
  • Water parks
  • Water used for firefighting, testing and related activities
  • Water used for dust suppression & concrete mixing
  • Auto (drive through) car washes
  • Flushing boat engines and using hoses with trigger nozzles/high pressure cleaning equipment to clean bilges and essential safety components on boat trailers such as brakes and wheels
  • Drip irrigation systems, or automated watering systems incorporating soil moisture sensors
  • Watering of newly laid turf by handheld hose or sprinkler for a period of 7 days from date of installation

More information on Water Restrictions can be found here.

WA Commercial Going Strong!

Over in WA, the Daisy Commercial team have been very busy!

Here are three of the latest commercials installs from our team.

Manjimup Aquatic Centre
Replacement covers for the three indoor pools 25m x 18.4m plus their leisure pool and a leisure pool with beach. These were all Thermotech 4.5mm Foam Covers.

Most aquatic centres replace covers as soon as they are worn out because they have had the tough experience of maintaining the heat and condensation (indoor pools). It is just too expensive to not have pool covers on when the pools are not in use.


Aquarius Towers

This outdoor swimming pool required a 12.5 x 6m 525B solar commercial cover with edge binding installed onto an existing Daisy commercial roller.
This was another replacement commercial cover job. Stopping the heat loss and evaporation is paramount here.


Koorda Shire Pool

Another massive outdoor pool measuring 33m x 12.8m. This pool needed a 525B solar commercial cover with wind skirts, and new mobile Stainless U frame rollers with 150mm tube and 900mm stainless hand wheels.

New solar pool covers were needed to help with heating when the pool is closed and to stop evaporation along with the new Daisy Stainless Steel Rollers.
