#1 Key to Success is Follow-up
We all know we should do it but often it is something that goes by the wayside. I am talking about follow-up. Studies have consistently shown that the difference between people who are achieving great success and those who are still struggling is the FOLLOW-UP.
See if this is familiar to you. You have a great conversation with someone either on the phone or you meet them at an event. Perhaps it is a sales conversation and the person is just not ready yet to work with you. Or you meet someone at an event and you want to stay connected.
And then a week goes by, then a month and by then it feels hard to reach out. What if they don’t remember me or if they have hired someone else? What do I say to even reconnect with them? I know I have been guilty of this and it does not feel good.
You are missing some great opportunities and potential clients/partners are missing the opportunity to work with you. Definitely not a good situation for anyone. You need a simple way to schedule your follow-up so this does not happen to you.
Well, these two templates will help you to create a system for your follow-up. The first is an email you can send (again change it up to be in your voice) after you have had a phone consultation.
The second one is an email you can send after you meet someone at an event or conference.
