A $200,000 Mistake: Why Follow-Up Matters More Than You Think

A $200,000 Mistake - Why Follow-Up Matters More Than You Think with Mostafa Hosseini

$200,000 lost because of lack of follow up call!

Here is the story… πŸ“–

When we first bought our house in 2015, we spent about $10,000 on some new furniture.

Everything was wonderful. Then we went from super happy, to concerned, to angry in no time.
😊 ➑️ 😟 ➑️ 😑

I couldn’t believe the difference a simple phone call makes.

I am sharing the story with you so you don’t have to lose another customer.

Mike, the salesman, promised to keep me updated about the delivery date.

We went home and waited for a few days, but Mike didn’t call!

I got concerned. πŸ€”

Mike said he would call me the next day.

But he never followed up!

So, after calling a couple of times, I drove back to the store.

Not once, but twice!

Each time, good ol’ Mike says he’ll track my order and call me back.

But guess what?

Radio silence.

I’m there, waiting, wondering if my furniture’s taking a world tour before reaching me. 🌍

A few weeks roll by.

My furniture finally shows up, but still no word from Mike. 🚚

I wondered, did he forget me? Or did he not care? 🀷

You see, Mike probably thought his job was done after the sale.

But here’s the crucial bit he missed…

Nurturing relationships with customers isn’t just about the sale; it’s about smart engagement.

Effective Follow-Up Strategies

DemandGen Report indicates that nurturing customers can increase upsell opportunities by 23%.

Imagine if Mike tapped into that potential! πŸ’‘

A couple of months later, I was back in the market for more furniture.

Guess who did I NOT go back to?
You got it – our friend Mike and his store. πŸ™…

My buddies were also looking to furnish their places.
Guess who didn’t get a referral? 🚫
Bingo, Mike missed out again.

Turns out, a simple 30-second follow-up call could have changed the whole story.

Consider the potential impact on sales if Mike knew that returning customers spend 67% more than new customers, according to Bain & Company.

I estimate Mike cost the store about $200,000 in repeat business and referrals.

All because of a simple followup call.

The Impact of Missed Follow-Up Opportunities

But here’s the good part:
