4 Tips for Following Up With Prospects

4 Tips for Following Up WIth Prospects

4 Tips for Following Up WIth Prospects

Did you know that so much money is left on the table, and business missed out on, simply due to not following up?!

Let me give you a couple of scenarios…

– A potential client reaches out to you and are not ready to book at the moment. Do you reach out to them at a later date to see where they are with their decision, or wait until they call you back (which may never happen).

– You submit a proposal (to book a gig, speak at an event, facilitate a workshop, etc.) A week or more has gone by with no response. Do you wait for a call, or do you reach out to the organization/person in charge?

– You meet some really great people at a networking event that have the potential to be a customer, or possibly has the connections and/or resources you need to help take your biz to the next level. Do you contact them within two days after the event, or do all business cards end up in a pile of doom, only to be found months later with no idea who they are or where you met them?

Does any of this sound familiar?

Well, the good news is, there are a couple of simple fixes that can help you raise your follow up game, and make the process easy peasy!

1. To follow up with a potential client, create a simple spreadsheet or document that lists the name of the prospect, date you met/spoke on the phone, a brief note with important details about the consultation/discussion, and a follow up date (don’t be afraid to ask the prospect when is a good time to follow up.)

2. When attending a networking event, don’t simply collect cards. Jot down a short note on the back of those cards that you are interested in following up with, and something that will help you remember who they were (ex: lady with the red hat). Reach out via phone or email within 24-48hrs, as anything after that may cause them to forget you or your conversation. Remember, this person may have collected a ton of biz cards too.

3. Invest in a CRM software. This will allow you to schedule follow up calls or email, keep track of your appointments, and set reminders.

4. Be persistent, but not overbearing. It’s totally ok to reach out to your prospects via different channels. For example, if a phone call goes unanswered, send an email as a back up. Don’t write it off as the person not being interested and avoiding your call.

If you are wondering why you don’t have the amount of clients that you would like, start by taking a deep look at your follow up skills, and decide how you are going to improve upon them.

MITM Entrepreneur Spotlight: Tiffany Lanier

Hey there, future moguls! I’m so excited to bring back the Mogul in the Making Entrepreneur spotlight series.  We took a little hiatus, with the craziness of the holidays, but I have a great lineup of super talented, inspiring, and passionate entrepreneurs to showcase over the next several weeks!

First up is Tiffany Lanier, of LiveWithTiffany.com.  Tiffany helps entrepreneurs fall in love with what they do, from wherever they want to do it by creating, packaging, and marketing their brilliance online.  Read on to find out how she fell into entrepreneurship “on accident” and how she plans to take her business worldwide!

Name: Tiffany Lanier
Location: Denver
Business Name: Live with Tiffany
Years in Business: Almost 3

Tiffany Lanier, founder of Live With Tiffany

Are you a full or part time business owner?
Full-time

Why did you start your business?
Well…I started my business on accident. I was planning to quit my first job out of college at a Startup as a Social Media Marketer to go to Costa Rica to “find myself.” I knew I wanted to do something on my own but I didn’t know what at the time. But I did know that working 9-5 wasn’t for me. Right before I bought a one way ticket to Costa Rica I was offered another marketing job at a local Marketing and Advertising firm but quickly discovered it was not for me.  I knew I didn’t want a job but at the same time saw an opportunity to learn from other marketers to increase my skill-set. But after only 2 weeks of working there the boss came in screaming at everyone for what reason I’m not sure. I was not a fan. Later that night I wrote him an email simply explaining that I wasn’t please with his level of disrespect and because of it, I could no longer work FOR him but I would consider working with him and the company, if he’d like to contract me.  To my surprise he said, “ok.” They became my first client and I started freelance marketing business.

Around the same time, I started a Women’s event business. And after about 20 months of mistakes and not being fulfilled later, I decided to start my Online Coaching Business, where I provide Business and Online Marketing coaching and strategy for entrepreneurs looking to build their personal brands online. I really wanted freedom to do my business anywhere I desired to be, as well as create a business that was scalable, allowing me to have several business models under one umbrella brand.

Tiffany Lanier, founder of Live With Tiffany

What has been the most rewarding aspect of having your own business?

Waking up every day knowing that I’m in control and that I literally create my outcomes.

What are your biggest challenges?
Some of the biggest challenges I’ve faced being entrepreneur was not knowing what I didn’t know and not having the capital to make bigger moves faster. I think those are two challenges most entrepreneurs face, especially in the beginning. I strongly believe it’s important to invest in help and support before you think you need it. Hiring a coach or a strategist, even if it’s for a one-time session, can give you more clarity than 6 months to a year of fumbling around.

What is the best business advice you’ve ever received?
“Charge what you’re worth.” You know why that’s so important? Because if you don’t you start to resent your clients and yourself which doesn’t allow you to love your business.

Tiffany Lanier, founder of Live With Tiffany

Do you have a team or are you a one man/woman show?
For the most part I’m a one-woman show, but I do outsource certain task here and there.

Where do you see your biz in the next 5 years?
Wow 5 years. My long term is 6-12 months lol. I see myself Speaking world-wide, continuing to coach and really expanding on retreats and Live events.

What advice would you give to other Moguls in the Making?
Start where you are. There will never be a great star aligned time to start your business. Take what you have and what you know and just take action. It’s better to build a little every day than to put it off for years and never start at all.
