So I don’t exactly have a green thumb but if gardening helps me get new ATMs placed then perhaps I’ll pick up the gardening hobby.
Sunday Kathy, her older sister and I were gardening all day at our house. It is so not fun for me, but alas it’s my house too. Well I began to dig out one of our rose bushes because we were moving it.
Next thing you know: CRACK! SPLAT!
I look and there apparently was a robin’s next in there and 3 little robin’s eggs cracked. I felt soooo horrible (I’m a huge animal person.) Anyway, Kathy and her sister told me to stop with the bush and get some lunch for all of us.
I head to a local place around us that makes cheese steaks. They have a minimum for credit card orders but I forgot what it was. I ask the lady. She said $10.
I say no problem. Then I follow that up with…..are you ready for this? “Have you guys ever thought about putting an ATM in here?”
Simple, eh? It’s one of the key phrases I teach in my ATM Business Blueprint course.
Well she proceeded to tell me that they use to have one but it was always out of order and the ATM owners never kept it filled with cash. So they got rid of it.
I told her about how I own a small, local ATM business and I live 5 minutes away so keeping it in service and loaded with cash isn’t an issue.
She was thrilled and gave me the owners name and phone number. Now I left the owner today and I don’t know if we’ll end up putting a machine there or not, but the point of this entire post was for you to learn this key phrase: “Have you ever thought about putting an ATM in here?”
