We all know that to be true. If you want to get a response or a decision from anyone, you need to FOLLOW UP.
Now, FIRST of all, the person that you are following up with- aka...the "follow-up-ee" (yes, I made that up) is not only responding to your offer, but perhaps they are responding to YOU.
You may have heard this statement: "People are not rejecting you, they're rejecting the opportunity." This is true in some cases, but not all. Because there is also another element here, and that is your
RELATIONSHIP with that individual.
"PEOPLE do business with people they KNOW, LIKE & TRUST."
So, in order to see more results in our business, we need to do 3 things.
1) Get to know people. What do they like and enjoy? What are their goals?
2) Get them to like you. Be genuine. Be patient. Be kind.
3) Earn their trust. Become trustworthy. Be honest. Be real.
YES, following up is essential, but having a good relationship with that person is key.
Without the follow up, there can be no "step two." Because of today's busy lifestyle it's seldom to have a prospect that will take action without some sort of follow through.
This will not only remind them of the beneficial aspects of your product/service, but it will remind them of YOU.
When you meet with someone, whether for business or pleasure, it's proper etiquette to thank them. Everyone likes to be appreciated and valued.
You can enhance relationships both personal and professional by becoming an APPRECIATOR and practicing APPRECIATION.
One way can be to Send a thank-you card. Tell them you enjoyed meeting with them. Give a genuine compliment and be sincere. This will set you apart and you will be remembered.
Follow up with a greeting card and get results. Do you know how easy and effective this is?
What if... you had a "relationship building system" that helps you build relationships?
What if...you started sending real, heartfelt cards? AND -you don't have to address the card, stamp the card, or even mail the card?
You had a system that keeps track of addresses and important dates such as birthdays, anniversaries etc?
You just pick out a card or create one, then just sign it and click SEND? (Ask me about the "magic" of the "send" button)
THAT'S HOW SENDOUTCARDS WORKS!
This is an effective follow up (relationship) system that puts your name at the top of mind.
How would you feel if you were on the receiving end and got a card and a box of brownies in your (real) mailbox? Actually, your head would be spinning. Because most people don't reach out in kindness like that these days. (But you're not like most people)
I personally love our system! I'd like to help you succeed in relationships and or business. I invite you to visit my website and take a look. There is also an option to send a free card and try it out.
SEND A CARD TO SOMEONE YOU APPRECIATE TODAY.
HOW MUCH DO THEY COST?
.98 cents each plus a stamp! WAY LESS expensive than any store, and very HIGH QUALITY!
(and remember- they are mailed for you, that's insane!!)
The fortune is in the follow up! Your real fortunes will be those lasting relationships that flourish.
By the way, if you're looking for referrals- they will come naturally.
