'Get with the social media program'

November 19, 2014Amy Canfield

ORLANDO, Fla.—Jeffrey Gitomer, best-selling author and sales and customer service professional, likes to quote Bob Dylan—a lot. “The times, they are a changin',” he said during his keynote speech at Honeywell's Connect2014, held here.And those changes, he said, in front of a backdrop of Dylan, all point to social media.“Social media has changed the way you sell and serve forever,” he said, energetically making his way through the audience aisles at the annual dealer...

Honeywell ads 'Mad Men' worthy

May 7, 2014Tess Nacelewicz

Honeywell's recent advertising success is on a scale that would make Mad Men's superstar adman, Don Draper, envious. First, the company recently won a coveted Telly Award for a Tuxedo Touch music video that it introduced this past December during the holiday season. Also, it got actor John Slattery—who plays the suave but mercurial Roger Sterling on AMC's Mad Men television series—to star in a new TV commercial where he demonstrates the voice control capabilities of Honeywell's Wi-Fi...

Honeywell gets to the heart of the holidays

December 18, 2013Tess Nacelewicz

Many security companies produce holiday ads featuring their products. But Honeywell took an innovative approach in promoting security this season—actually commissioning a Nashville band, Telecommunicators, to create an original song, “You're My Heart,” and using it in a music video that highlights the features of Tuxedo Touch. The resulting video tugs at the heart while showing the ways Tuxedo Touch can enhance a family's home life. And Angela Remmert, media specialist at Honeywell...

The Honeywell Connect2013 event, which took place November 8-10 in Los Angeles, was declared a success by all the dealers I spoke to. Of course, dealers generally enjoy themselves at these conventions. There are networking events and parties, educational sessions and parties, awards and parties, speeches and more parties. You get the idea. Honeywell works hard to ensure that its dealers are treated well. But this particular event was new; It's the is first time the manufacturer gathered all three...

Day 2 at ESX: Looking ahead, on technology, leaders, and sales

June 26, 2012Tess Nacelewicz

“Forward thinking.” That the term that Hank Groff, national director of Pittsburgh-based Guardian Protection, used today when I asked him about his impression of the second day of the ESX show, being held here in Nashville. Groff told me that's a theme he's noticing at the show, and said it dovetails nicely with Guardian's approach to the latest technology. “We're really driving our dealers to sell everything cellular and mobile app technology,” he said. He also said a Texas...

Pet owners lapping up security

May 9, 2012Tess Nacelewicz

Honeywell pointed that out in a blog posted today during National Pet Week, which runs May 6-12. Angela Remmert, a media specialist with Honeywell Security, writes that 72.9 million homes have pets and that many owners...

Protect your customers from 'flood season'

April 20, 2012Tess Nacelewicz

OK, up until now we've had kind of a drought this spring here in Maine, but normally this time of year is known as “mud season,” because of how wet the combination of melting snow and spring rain can make the ground. And lots of rain is in the forecast for the coming week, which is why a recent post about protecting homes from "flood season" on Honeywell's The Security Channel Blog caught my eye. Jason Lutz, district sales manager, Honeywell Security & Communications, wrote a piece titled,...
