Global Graphics Network Expanding With 50 Development Executives
Global Graphics Network (GGN), a new Tampa, Florida-based business accelerator for print-shop owners, plans to add 50 development executives throughout North America over the next two years.
“Thousands of print-shop owners throughout North America need a solid path to grow their sales, increase their profits and have more fun again in the printing business,” said Greg Muzzillo, founder of GGN. “Our development model is similar to the proven development agent program used by Subway Restaurants to generate their explosive growth.”
GGN is a sister network to Cleveland-based Proforma, a $500 million network of print and promotional product distributors. Proforma offers its members more than $4 million per year in sales and marketing programs, buying advantages with its supplier network and back office support. GGN will offer these advantages to its print-shop members.
“Print-shop owners also need local business development support to grow their sales,” Muzzillo said. “Most print-shop owners are more comfortable running a print shop than running a sales department. The key role for the GGN development advisors will be helping build successful sales teams for GGN members.”
GGN and its regional development advisors (RDAs) will focus on three key areas of support for its members. First, the RDAs will help GGN members position their businesses as total solutions providers and immediately increase sales to current customers. Second, the RDAs will help recruit proven sales leaders with existing business to create instant sales growth and leadership for continued momentum. Third, the RDAs will assist GGN members in acquiring area printers.
“This is a multi-billion dollar opportunity for us,” Muzzillo added. “As the Subway development agents helped explode Subway’s growth, many of them became multi-millionaires. We look forward to a similar explosion of growth and wealth-building for our regional development advisors and our Global Graphics Network members.”
GGN reported that it is already in serious discussions with more than 15 qualified prospects for its regional development advisors program. According to GGN, most of the best prospects are seasoned sales veterans from paper merchants or print consumables companies.
