The year-end countdown has begun, and Lenovo is making sure it gives distributors the best possible support to sell up a storm.

Borrowing from the Xmas tradition, Lenovo is visiting distributors with an advent calendar that showers salespeople with sweet treats and exciting prizes.

All they have to do is make a sale to pick a door and pick up the treat hiding behind the door. These could be chocolates, adult colouring books, notebooks, speakers or vouchers.

At the end of each floor day, one lucky person stands a chance of winning a Lenovo product – either a Lenovo Tab7 Essential, a Lenovo Yoga 520 or a Lenovo Legion 520.

There’s also a Mystery Caller who will phone sales staff during the day. If they get the call, sales staff respond with “Lenovo: designed to be different” to win both a spot prize and a spot in the lucky draw at the end of the day for a Lenovo product.

Not only do sales staff take part in fun activities, and get rewarded for selling Lenovo’s world-leading product – they also get valuable training on Windows 10 and Windows 10 Pro, as well as an introduction to the Lenovo Channel Portal.

The countdown programme is already underway, with Pinnacle, Rectron and Axiz having experienced the first of two floor days.

So far, a Lenovo Tab7 Essential has been won at Rectron and Pinnacle, with Rectron – Palesa Matsiloane drawing the tablet during the Rectron floor day, and Jayde Menke getting lucky at Pinnacle.

Staff at Axiz couldn’t undercover the Lenovo Tab7 Essential on 8 November, but they’ll have another chance to win it on 22 November, during their second floor day.

The second round of fun and prizes, starting at Axiz when staff get to spin the wheel to uncover prizes, will see more prizes, more treats, more fun – and more Lenovo sales – unfold through November.
