This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from someone who wishes to remain anonymous.
I have a quick question about sales and email marketing. I will send a client an email. I then don’t follow up until two days later because I don't want to bother them too much. Is there something wrong with that? Am I just trying to play it safe?
First off, any decisions about sales and marketing should be based on data… not how you feel.
Not doing something because you “don’t want to bother someone too much” is most certainly based in the fear of what others may think of you…
Here’s the truth:
Sales and marketing is all about helping people… it’s about being IN SERVICE.
You can’t look at sales as bothering someone. A sales call or email is an opportunity to help someone, and that's where you need to make the mindset shift.
When you make a sales call or send an email, look to find a way you can help that individual, and shift your thoughts and feelings from “getting” to “giving”.
If you developed the viewpoint that your product or service is there to help other individuals, then…
your job is to sort through those individuals to find the ones that you can help.
If you have the belief that you need to “get” from someone, you will actually repel sales and money.
If you have trouble receiving money, making sales calls (even though you’re in the red), sending marketing emails or directly reaching out to prospects on social media, you have an issue with your money mindset. For one reason or another you’re carrying shame around money, and that shame is detrimental to your ability to make the money you desire.
Here’s what I’d like to do…
I’d like to invite you to join me at Noon ET Monday, when I’ll be hosting a FREE 4-Hour Workshop specifically designed to help you shift your money issues. We’re going to work on 1) How to charge what you’re worth and actually RECEIVE that money 2) How to make decisions that make money rather than repelling it and 3) How to shift your thinking (and energy) from getting to giving.
