APPLETON GREENE CLIENT PROSPECTING SERVICE (CPS) DESCRIPTION OF SERVICE AND TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SERVICE
These terms and conditions of service have been developed by Appleton Greene & Co for all clients, learning providers and consultants, who will be referred to as the “customer” within this agreement. Customers consent to abide by these terms and conditions of service in the nature of goodwill in which they represent.
This contractual agreement is directly between Appleton Greene & Co Global Limited (referred to in this agreement as AGC) and clients, learning providers, or consultants (referred to in this agreement as the customer). Upon completion of this agreement via the Appleton Greene web site, it is considered to be completed and authorized by the customer and constitutes a legally binding agreement between the customer and AGC.
Appleton Greene provides B2B Prospecting as a service to clients, learning providers and consultants within most major cities worldwide, a low risk sales support service that can be switched on or off on demand. Prospects are identified and engaged in a format designed to flow naturally into your sales pipeline. Building your ideal prospect list, the AGC team will build a qualified prospect list based on your target business criteria, target industries, locations, business size, specific job titles and other key parameters. The AGC platform is integrated with a range of data sources and brokers enabling us to source and verify business contact details on a reliable and cost-effective basis, including valid email and social handles such as LinkedIn profile URLs. Excluding current, old and soon-to-be customer exclusions can be supplied at company level or on an email specific basis. We usually reach out to prospects initially via email, in-mail, or over the telephone, depending upon the target market. Prior to messaging, AGC will passively engage every prospect on behalf of the Customer in a step designed to familiarize the prospect with your Client Information Guide (CIG) or Client Information Hub (CIH). Passive social engagement significantly improves conversion. Engaging each prospect personally, AGC then engages each prospect with a personalized introduction to your corporate training program or consulting service, using a conversational tone to invite them for a telephone conference to evaluate and assess likely synergy. To ensure a daily lead flow into your inbox, AGC will engage a fixed number of prospects each day, on behalf of the Customer in a manner designed to flow directly into your sales process. This incorporates: a designated AGC email address, such as firstname.lastname@example.org; leads flowing directly to your inbox, responses from interested prospects arrive on a daily basis, fully qualified, engaged and ready to learn more; chasing non-respondents to generate more responses, any non-responders receive a follow up nudge communication, 6 – 9 working days after initial engagement generating a further wave of responses; further follow up messages are then scheduled as required.
The AGC Client Prospecting Service (CPS) is not an expensive service, the value comes from the reliable, disciplined approach taken towards identifying and prospecting a fixed number of prospects every day on behalf of our clients, something even the best sales people find difficult to maintain. AGC Client Prospecting Service (CPS) campaigns offer a far more effective lead generation solution than internal sales staff or call centre campaigns. Based on results AGC represents one of the best B2B lead generation solutions in the world today. The AGC prospecting approach cannot be replicated without significant capital investment in staff, process and the development of proprietary systems, 3rd party integrations and data supplier contracts. There are no significant like-for-like competitors in the market and our business case is straight forward and simple to trial.
SERVICE FEES, PAYMENT TERMS AND REFUND POLICY
The cost of one Client Prospecting Service (CPS) campaign is $5,000.00. Campaigns are available on a quarterly basis, during the months of January, April, July and October and usually run for a consecutive period of three months. Each campaign incorporates 1,000 prospects. Payment amounting to 50% of the service fee, that is to say $2,500.00, will need to be made at the time of order, in order to reserve your campaign position. The remaining balance of the service fee, i.e. $2,500.00, will then need to be paid 30 days prior to the proposed campaign start date. If campaigns are due to commence within a period of 30 days, then the full service fee of $5,000.00 will need to be made at the time of order. All service fees need to be paid by international bank wire transfer and are not refundable under any circumstances. Campaigns are subject to ongoing availability and as such a campaign position will have been specifically reserved for the Customer and AGC will not therefore have an opportunity to offer the campaign position to an alternative customer in the event of cancellation.

4. Campaign Performance
4.1 All campaigns will be undertaken on a best efforts basis. AGC ensures that the Client Information Hubs (CIH) of Learning Providers and the Client Information Guides (CIG) of Accredited Consultants, will be promoted to the featured 1,000 prospects throughout the duration of the campaign. The Customer can monitor both the implementation and performance of the Client Prospecting Service (CPS) campaign for themselves by accessing their own Client Prospecting Portal (CPP). This enables the Customer to see the 1,000 prospects that are being targeted during the campaign and to exclude any that they would not want to prospect. The Customer will be able to see the communications that are being sent to the prospects, the replies that are being received from prospective clients, both positive and negative, the open rates, click rates, lead rates and prospecting rates and these campaign portals are updated on a daily basis in real time.
5. Campaign Liability
5.1 Each and every individual Client Information Hub (CIH) or Client Information Guide (CIG), will feature a Unique Program Proposition (UPP) or Unique Service Proposition (USP) respectively, that will be based upon the unique core skills and interests of each individual Learning Provider or Consultant. As such, success will always understandably be determined by third party client interest in each program or service proposition, their interest in each individual Learning Provider or Consultant personally and their willingness to place a program or service order. The Customer will also be responsible for personally hosting and managing any appointments generated, either over the telephone, or via video conference online. The customer therefore accepts that AGC cannot in any way be held financially or legally responsible for the results of these campaigns. AGC is responsible for placing the Client Information Guides (CIG) and Client Information Hubs (CIH) of Accredited Consultants and Learning Providers in front of prospective clients by implementing the Client Prospecting Service (CPS). Success will then be determined by willing third party clients and the performance of the Customer during conversations with the prospective clients.
6. The Use Of The Customer’s Own Personal Linkedin Profile and Sales Navigator
6.1 The Customer has the option of choosing whether to allow the AGC Client Prospecting Department to use their own personal Linkedin Profile during the (CPS) research and outreach process. If you have your own personal Linkedin Profile and you have subscribed to Sales Navigator, then the AGC Client Prospecting Team can use a technical algorithm during the research and outreach process, in order to personalize communications through your Linkedin profile. You would need to subscribe to Linkedin Sales Navigator, if you have not already done so, at an additional cost of $79.99/mo, which you can then cancel at any time after your campaign has finished. The benefit of doing this, is that it tends to personalize our research and outreach procedure and enables us to establish personal contact with prospective clients on your behalf and it ultimately improves your return on investment during the campaign, usually by some 27%. While you would need to provide our AGC (CPS) team with your user name and password, they simply use a technical algorithm to access Sales Navigator within your Linkedin Profile account and would not have any other access to your account apart from this and would not have any visibility regarding any confidential information contained within your account, so there is no potential for risk. Nevertheless, this is still entirely optional and the Customer will have the opportunity to decide whether or not they would like to use this feature, when completing their service application form.
