So yesterday while I was doing a 121 day, I realised there was a ‘chink’ in my armour that if I could fix – quickly
My overall progress would accelerate rapidly
So while we were wrapping up (and well within acceptable business hours) I found 4 people that could serve my new
Now because of the way I am?
I HATE being crap at stuff
So for me at the start of anything new skill wise (or if I look/feel like shit) then I will go for a private or intensive option
I messaged all 4 people at the same time
I wasn’t ‘known’ to them (this need was on a local level) so just an ordinary lead – enquiring as they told me to – via message
All 4 read the message
Only two got back to me saying they would reply first thing
(I don’t think Midday is first thing lol)
One chap got back to me 7am
I wasn’t up but replied straight away – worked out a package – and signed up
When I was in the building stages of my gyms, copywriting, agency and consulting business
Leads were RARE
And when they came in – qualified, not ‘toe dippers or enquiries – I DIVED on it
Especially if you are in a service business speed IS crucial
Don’t get me wrong you shouldn’t always be on, have defined hours/boundaries and set limitations
(And if you don’t have them you can’t blame someone for not adhering to them/going elsewhere if tot don’t work C hours etc)
I was an EASY sale
I said in the message:
- ready to start now
- have checked your prices and stated which one I wanted
- was totally flexible with my diary
I’d like to think I’m an ideal client
And due to SPEED one individual has a new client who will invest long term in them and 3 others who simply couldn’t even bother to reply?
If someone is interested in your their emotion = high and their likelihood of buying = high
ESPECIALLY if they have sought YOU out (not ads or funnel or promo or something incentivised or required sales strategy)
Those that act fast?
So if you’re the sort of person that actually gives a crap about growing your biz and acts fast?
You have nothing to worry about because the majority or people just simply don’t
