How to follow up your leads without feeling like a stalker!

2 Minutes

One of the big questions I’m often asked is how to follow up leads without feeling like a stalker!

You’ve done all the hard work, made that cold call, had a great conversation, sent the quote.

(tumble weed)

Nothing, nada, zilch… you’ve been ghosted!

Mastering the sales follow-up is a critical skill however, many are not following up enough for fear of being seen as a stalker! According to a study by Brevet, 80% of sales require an average of five follow-ups in order to close the deal.

Yes 5… in my experience it can be more like 10-12.

However, even in the sales industry, only 44% of sales reps follow up with a prospect only once before giving up. After four follow-ups, 94% of sales reps have given up.

And if we looked at the stats for business owners the follow-up rates would be even lower. I get it you don’t want to be a pest or seen as a stalker so what can you do about it?

Here are five ways to go from ghosted to “I ain’t afraid of no ghost”! 👻

Yes, five… but in my experience it can be more like 10-12!

👉 Arrange the follow up on the initial call. Potential clients go quiet because they are busy. You must be tenacious and arrange the follow up there and then.

👉 Actually make the call! Yes that piece of plastic we try and avoid when it comes to speaking to customers.

👉 Nurture your lead. The money is in the follow up… clients need nurturing

👉 Know when No means No!

👉 Be confident with your follow ups. Don’t be afraid of follow ups
