One of the Best Ways to Create an Exceptional Cash Infusion for Your Business
“Business is slow!”
“The economy is horrible.”
“The political structure creates fear of spending.”
Which of the “stories” you say to yourself?
Have you noticed that some people do their best while others keep telling themselves how bad the business is? It’s based on story. Stories make us go forward or stop us in our path.
For those who convince themselves that their business is sluggish, they probably will not do anything to generate income. Those who find opportunities, regardless of outward appearances, under any circumstances, are likely to take massive action to generate cash.
Fastest Track to Cash
One of the fastest ways to earn money is to pick up the phone as part of your follow-up strategy.
Follow-up by phone seems to be a very lost art. Recently, I passed a shelf in my office that is a “collector” shelf. You know that. You get something by mail and plan to get there … someday. One of the Best Ways to Create an Exceptional Cash Infusion for Your Business
Recently, I found a package that someone sent some time ago. When I receive it, I experience many things and never feel the urgency to open it.
The package contains examples of oils, creams, and other items that may cost enough to be sent to me.
The woman who sent her was never followed up. Not once.
Well, maybe he followed up with an email, but if he did, I never saw him.
Waste of money. In his mind, he might have thought he was being productive by sending me his package. He would have been much more productive if he followed up with picking up the phone to make sure I got their package. Chances are, I will try to sample some time ago. Who knows, I might have turned into a customer.
Email is not the best choice
Yesterday, I got an email from someone who asked me what to do if someone has not responded to his email for more than two months.
I asked, “Did you pick up the phone and call them? You never know … they might not get your email.”
He did not think to pick up the phone. He guessed the man was blowing him.
You can not just rely on email as a communication tool. There are too many things that can happen as your email is flagged as spam.
There is no magic bullet
Why are people so hesitant to pick up the phone? It’s like a ton of phones and they’ll hurt themselves.
The phone is your friend The phone is making money. Mobile phones are a great tool to use in your daily business practices.
You may be surprised at how many businesses are lost because you rely on a very unreliable source of communication.
Recently, I hosted an event in Portland, Oregon. 40 businessmen attended Passion for Thriving.
I took one day after the re-assembly, arranged my call list and started calling. Over the next few days, I contacted at least 90% of those present.
Not just registering private clients as a result, I sell information products to some participants and show, for example, that picking up the phone is a very good thing.
If you feel the business is slow, get out of your own way and pick up the phone.
Set the destination minimum number of calls you will make each day. The point is this; Your business success is not based on some secret or magical formula. It’s based on consistently doing what works.
Phone calls work Simple like that.
