INCREASING YOUR EXPOSURE and
giving you the competitive edge are ways All Pro is committed to helping
your golf green business grow! We have conducted 24 nationwide workshops
and 26 nation-wide tradeshows in the last 12 months and the response
has been nothing short of phenomenal! We have met some of the finest
contractors in the industry and they have asked for the same thing…..
CertificationTraining! We are now offering certification training to
contractors and retailers.
With the growing number of referrals that come into
our office (hundreds a week),and the fact that we don’t have an
installation division of our business. We had to come up with a solution
for referring the best installers in our industry. This solution is
our brand new certification training classes. Only certified installers
will be referred to homeowners for estimates and installations. It is
in your best interest totake advantage of certification training. You
do not have to be certified to sell our product,but the knowledge and
information you take from our training class will exponentially grow
All Pro is currently enrolling for installation certification
classes at our corporate facility in Fort Oglethorpe,Georgia. We will
have certification classes throughout the U.S. and Canada within a few
months. But do not wait to take advantage of this training. This is
a one day certification consisting of class room training and hands
on advanced installation of a putting green. Certified contractors are
10X more likely to generate leads, turn those leads into sales and to
be successful in this business.
There are 3 areas that can cause problems with installations,
base prep, adding infill and seaming. We will cover the complete installation
techniques covered in our DVD with additional techniques to save time,
money and eliminate any call backs. Make sure that you and your staff
are properly trained and certified as installers.
The reason we started these training classes, is
that we have contractors that are doing high quality, first class installations
and others that are doing very average installations. We want you to
be successful in this business and for every installation to be great.
We have had contractors that have been installing
our greens for two years show up to the certification class and learn
more in 1 day than they did in 2 years installing greens.The response
has been great and many of our contractors agree that the cost of thecertification
is minimal compared to the expense of just 1call back from a bad installation.
For a minimal cost of only $399 per person ($200
per person for 3 or more), this will entitle you to know the proper
installation techniques, successfully market and sell theproduct and
exponentially grow your putting green business. Remember,that certified
contractors will receive referrals and participate in our new marketing
programs. Formore information or to schedule yourself and/or your crew,
call us at 800-334-9005 for acomplete class schedule.
Some may say “I’m too busy”or “I
don’t have the time”. “Too busy? ”Too busy to
create a brand new revenue stream with existing equipment and employees.
“Don’t have time? ”Don’t have time to learn
the proper way to install a green that will cost you much more money
and time in unnecessary call backs. We hear from contractors every week
that are seeing their profit margins shrink from increased competition.
It seems that every high-school kid with a pick-up truck and a lawn
mower is calling himself a landscaper. Selling synthetic golf greens
is a way to differentiate yourself in your local market and create a
new profit center for your business.

WHAT CONTRACTORS ARE SAYING ABOUT “CERTIFICATION
“The class gave us the finer points,finishing touches to a greatinstallation.
Great hands on. Wellworth the money.”— David Gray, CornerstoneGolfscapes,
“It was informative and well worth it.” — Ed Bailey,
“The installation DVD is good, but you learn much more from
the hands on training. It was also helpful to see the manufacturer,belief
and conviction. It is easier to sell the product when you know the manufacturer
is behind the product and is supportive.”— Greg Lecuyer,
Leisure Greens,Winnipeg, Canada
“Learning the tricks of the trade is the best benefit because
you can’tlearn everything from watching a DVD. The hands-on approach
is very helpful. I did a tradeshow after attending the training class
and sold 6 greens. Also from the show I had several people interested
in getting certified. Because the class we have become a “Mater
Distributor” in South Carolina.”— Matthew Knight,
BackyardPutting Systems, SC
“The class was perfect timing for me. I was concerned about seaming.
They showed me how to seam. I was also glad to learn about the new installation
techniques and marketing programs. Since the training I have sold 3
greens which valued $29,376.00.”— Don Ellis, Tee Time Greens,Sparks,
“We were pleased with how thorough Chris was on step by step.
We had no problem with our first installation at the mall. Everyone
knew exactly how to do the install. The marketing literature is outstanding.”—
Dave Garland, CreativeLandscaping, Walnut, IL
“The demonstration was very helpful. It showed
all the hands-on details we needed. There was a lot of information on
marketing but was broken down to be simple. Being able to do a “Build
a Green Day” is going to help our company stand out from the others.”—
Bob Hanson, R. Hanson, Inc., MN
