On 11am on Wednesday, January 18th, HeatSpring will be hosting a #geochat with guest expert Martin Orio, VP at Water Energy Distributors on twitter. Read more about the #geochat here.

The topic for the first #geochat is “Best Practices for Selling Geothermal”. Like we discussed in our last episode of HeatSpring TV, Geothermal is a better investment then the stock market, notice how the tweetie bird is dreaming about dollars. Believe it or not, he’s dreaming about how to sell more geothermal systems.

In this post, I’m going to go over a few basics so anyone interested can get involved.

What topics are we going to discuss?

We’ll be discussing the best practices for selling geothermal. Here’s what I’ll ask Martin.

  • Best way for getting leads
  • How to┬áseparate┬áhot leads from cold
  • Top objections and how to handle them
  • We know referrals are the engine of renewable energy businesses. What is the best way to get referrals in the geothermal industry?

Why Are we Hosting a #Geochat?

The idea was stolen borrowed from Raina Russo of EcoOutfitter and her #solarchat (the #solarchat is taking place tomorrow at 1pm, read more about the #solarchat here)

The purpose is to provide a place for professionals who are OBSESSED with geothermal a place to connect with each other, share knowledge and best practices.

Our Guest

Our guest for this week will be Martin Orio. The geothermal industry needs more Martins. He’s loud, loves geothermal and will tell you about. Martin spoke at HeatSpring for ‘How to Make Money in Renewable Energy’ meetup and I liked what he had to say.
