I was the worst at following up with people, Usually it was annually. But I never imagined actually letting someone know how a video was going. Who cares? No news is good news, right? They want to see it done regardless of how long it takes. At least that’s what I thought.
I now focus my whole day on follow up.
Whenever I follow up with someone, I get this old school feeing that is not going to work. That they are annoyed. When really they appreciate the connection.
Fall out: If I don’t reconnect with those people I met for just a slight check on how they are, I become one of the bunch that’s just there.
Follow up: When I do reconnect, it plants a seed of community that they have now.
Follow through: This one shows the integrity of what I’m going to do. How I persevere and how I do business.
Which reminds me of the 4 refer ability habits. These are more important now than they were ever before.
- Show up on time
- Do what you say
- Finish what you start
- Say please and thank you
This is a lifestyle change. Making relationships for my business is a priority instead of a deed.
