What happens when you have an appointment with either a potential client, customer or even just an acquaintance? Once you’ve met with them, what do you do? This article is all about how valuable a personalized follow up marketing system is. In this day of craziness, people are mostly concerned with their own well-being, and I can’t say I blame them. You’ve heard the phrase “look out for number one” right?
Show Them You Really Care
But how about if I can get you to shift your mindset into thinking about the OTHER person. What are they going through? How is their life being affected by this economy? Don’t you think they are a bit stressed out? I’ll lay money on it they are. So how about acknowledging how much you enjoyed meeting with them with a personalized card?
Your Very Own Online Follow Up Marketing Tool
You go back to your home or office, get on your computer, pick a card (like the one to your left), write a nice personalized message (in your handwriting and with your signature), insert a picture of yourself for face/name recognition, hit send. That night a REAL card, with a REAL stamp is printed and mailed to your potential customer, friend or client. How cool is that?
A Lasting Impression
Do you think that would make an impression on the person? I think so! You just don’t see that kind of follow up anymore. People are too busy. They forget about it. They don’t see the value in it. Unfortunately there is a very small percent of the population that IS doing it, and they are experiencing awesome growth in their own businesses. They know firsthand the return on that follow up is.
Impact A Long Lost Friend With A Card
What about the friend you’ve lost touch with? Maybe it’s been a couple of years, or just 6 months. You finally get together, have a great time, and you know it will probably be a while since you see them again. Same routine. Go home, log into your site, pick a card, write a kind message, and hit SEND!
A couple of days later, your friend gets the card and is BLOWN AWAY. They call you up and thank you profusely. I just think that’s pretty dang cool! Maybe you don’t, but if you want to have meaningful relationships and a successful business, this is a viable method to achieve it.
Follow Up To Build Better Relationships
With the age of the Internet, relationships can easily be maintained with a little creativeness and thoughtfulness. I hope the ideas above spur you on to putting more attention into your follow up. I can tell you I do now and it’s made a huge difference in my business, and personal life.
