Knowledge is Power. Stay Informed.

Sales tips, industry news, RS&I events, and much more.

Have you ever tried hitting a clay pigeon with a single bullet? It takes some serious skill or a lot of luck, but most likely a lot of both skill and luck.

Trying to generate a sale with only one marketing tactic is a lot like trying to hit a clay pigeon with a single bullet. Chances are pretty high that you won't get that sale.

Just as a clay pigeon is meant to be hit by dozens of pellets from a shotgun shell, a sale is meant to be generated by using a variety of marketing tactics. Keeping this simple analogy in mind will help you take a broader approach to the tactics you use in 2019.

But while we're on the topic, let us help you do some brainstorming for the coming year.

Business owners with multiple TVs in one location have often had the onerous task of managing all those screens with all those remotes and making sure their customers are happy with what they're watching. It can quickly turn into a juggling act based on different customer preferences and requests.

What if every TV could be individually controlled from one central location? What if it was as easy as opening an app on a tablet and tapping a few selections to update all those TVs? No matching remotes with TVs. No finding lost remotes.

That's the beauty of DISH's new remote app—and it's called DISH OnePoint.

It was that time of year again. Last week, we held our annual national sales meeting in beautiful Idaho Falls, Idaho. It's a noteworthy event because it's the only time each year we're able to get our entire sales team from all nine of our locations together with our corporate partners.

Folks fly in from all over the country to be here. We learn a lot and we play a lot—all for the purpose of "sharpening our saws" and building stronger relationships.

The theme this year was "Y'all Tough Enough", which gave us an entertaining western style to each of the individual events over the course of four days. It also reminded us that we have what it takes to help our large network of small businesses succeed.

It's still time to believe in DISH's technology, especially when it comes to high-definition DVR receivers. As customers consider the number of TVs they have in their home to the amount of storage space they need to record their favorite movies and shows, they can put their trust in all of the technology DISH has to offer.

DISH Authorized Retailers, who run their own business selling DISH products and services in their local communities, can also put their trust in knowing their customers are able to experience the next-generation home entertainment that DISH provides.

But how does a customer know which DVR receiver to put into their home? How do they make the decision to pick the receiver that will match their wants and needs? Let us answer these questions as we break down the differences between the four best DVRs from DISH.
