Business Success Thursday Volume 179! Follow up is King!

Here is another extract from our upcoming book, The Premier Way!…

I hope you enjoy this resource and receive some value for you and your business!

If cashflow is the king of finance then follow up is the undisputed king of sales!

If you only take one thing from this program, then do yourself a massive favour and add follow up to your sales toolkit!

Creating a culture of obsessive follow up is absolutely critical to your success. End of story.

Here are some stats to prove the point:

48% of businesses never follow up.

25% make the 2nd contact and stop.

12% make 3 contacts and stop.

90% of sales are made on the 5th contact or more.

So 10% of the worlds businesses are getting 90% of the sales.

Say no more!

Are you in the 10%?

Or are you rotting away in the 90%?

Today you can move your business into the realm of growth and enduring success simply by implementing a simple follow up system!

Follow up is a LEAD measure. And you can control lead measures!

It’s a numbers game! Work out your conversion %!

Then you can predict your sales! Eg 50 calls = 5 meetings = 2 sales!

Always leave a voicemail! Always add value! Be compelling!

Every follow up call should move your client further down the funnel!

Every no is closer to a yes! Make it fun!

Your quote bank is your goldmine! It is the most neglected asset in 90% of businesses! It loses value by the day by the hour!

Follow up has many many benefits!

Here are some of them:

1. It helps you grow your business!
