This week, we're talking about Feeling Fabulous At Follow-Up!
There's a reason for the saying, "The fortune is in the follow-up," and we talked a little bit about this last week during our "How To Create Magnetic Messaging" series, so this week, we're going deeper and going into exactly HOW to follow-up in a way that feels good--and works!!!!
I used to be really confused about how to follow up and felt like I was pressuring people or being annoying. So, when I connected with someone I KNEW I could help and was so excited to support, but they said to me, "I'd love to work with you, but _______," I was so bummed and frustrated and I didn't know what else to say other than occasionally getting up the guts to write them an email that basically said, "How about now?" Can you relate?
Now, I feel really good about following up because I know that each time I do, I'm adding value to their life, and here's one way I do that:
I send them an article, or video, or some other resource I think would be helpful to them and what they're struggling with or looking for.
It can be something I created, or something someone else did. What's important is that I'm sharing a resource they can use right now and that's relevant to their current struggle. I let them know that I'd love to hear what they think of it to further the conversation and build the relationship.
Here's an example:
I know that when we talked, one of the things you were struggling with was procrastination. I was thinking about you and wanted to share this article that I think will help you as you consider whether working together is the next best step for you and your business: https://journal.thriveglobal.com/how-procrastination-is-kil…
I'd love to hear what you think of it, and either way, I know it's going to provide you with some insights you can apply in your business right now!
Lots of love,
So, who can you follow up with and add value to today? Share below...and share the questions you have about this strategy, too!
