Hope you are not going alone in business this year too? I know it is challenging finding the right partners, employees and even clients but doing it all by yourself sometimes can be overwhelming you know…
Let’s do a little exercise, for one hour every week, write out 10 people you know that you haven’t been in touch with for a while. Call to check up on them, ask them how their year is going, find out if there is anything you can do to help with whatever they may be doing and do what you can to ease any burden they may have in building their business, growing their career or handling life issues.
Note: If their challenge is with money and you can not genuinely help out, please let them know immediately without giving them any false hope.
Now, follow up with a whatsapp telling them how good it was to hear from them and wish them the very best of their day. Now be sure to keep your whatsapp status updated with your products, services, promotions or offers. There is a high probability those you checked on will check your status and if they like what they see, you may have some requests, referrals or offers.
Question… why should you not just go straight to telling people, especially those you know, what you do without showing interest in them or what they do?
