Ignored Emails Suck!
As a full-time #entrepreneur, my livelihood depends on #lead generation.
But follow up is where leads turn to #business.
How many of you TRULY #followup with people like I did on this email chain?
Initially, I worried that I'd annoy prospective #clients, but I realized 3 things:
1) People are busy - You have no idea what someone else's #schedule is. If you're asking THEM for something, you'd better be willing to remind them of your request.
2) Busy people respect persistence - #Gatekeepers to opportunities - #school admissions, big #speaking events, etc. Often keep mazes and walls in place to weed out folks who aren't serious. Don't get stuck behind a faux wall that you lack the persistence to break down.
3) If someone commits something to you, there is nothing 'annoying' about holding them #accountable.
If a person you're contacting is intolerable of your persistence, then perhaps they shouldn't make promises they can't keep.
