The Even Bigger Losers!!!!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Weichert, Realtors® - SBA Group 9074493

You will be amazed to learn the number of salespeople who do not follow up. They get a lead, send one e-mail or make one call and then report that the prospect didn't get back to them. Some will try again, but after the second attempt they give up. People are busy and they may not necessarily need your service this minute, but you need to be in their eyes when they need you. Don't be a pest, but be persistent and provide valuable information they can use as means to stay in front of them so they remember you. Many deals go to competitors because people are ready to make a decision and can't find your contact info. Be there when your prospects are ready to take action.

Following-up is a lost art form because it requires that you believe you're not wasting your time.

Interesting post.

You are right we need to remain in front and top of mind of all potential clients.

Then our odds of success will dramatically increase.

Good point, you need to stay in touch with them in a round about way without being a pest for sure.

As Brian Buffini is fond of pointing out, you have to call prospects many times before they engage.  I typically give up after 10 emails but usually get some response well before that.

Thank you all for warm appreciation. It gives more motivation to share and sharing knowledge is a great way to admire your profession.
