Unlocking Sales Potential: Mastering Follow-up Strategies

Unlocking Sales Potential, Mastering Follow-up Strategies with Mostafa Hosseini

Unlocking Sales Potential with Effective Follow-ups

Picture this: after three months of follow ups,

I finally chatted with Steve again, the marketing manager of a hardware store in Virginia. 🛠️


Identifying Common Sales Challenges

I’ve noticed that after the first meeting, prospects ignore me for a while to test my follow up.

Now, Steve faces a common challenge – his sales are stagnant.

Despite his hard work, the numbers aren’t going up. 📉


Overcoming Sales Hurdles

Here’s the kicker:

Steve has a big customer list, but it’s gathering dust.

He knows the importance of follow ups.

The issue?

His list has thousands of contacts!

He said has an assistant who’s supposed to help, but she’s not exactly a follow-up expert.

Can’t blame her.

Salespeople hardly ever follow up, let alone your assistant!

So, Steve pops the question, ‘Why should I use your service instead of my assistant?’ 🤔

I didn’t dive into self-praise. Nope!

I said: just curious, Steve…

When was the last time she called the list?

Steve: Never.

Me: Can she reach out to 5000 people?

Steve: Probably not.

Me: Does she know how to follow up?

Steve: She requires training.

Me: Does she enjoy follow-up calls?

Steve: NOPE!’

He thought for a second and said, Could you introduce me to one of your current customers?

Me: Of course, I can!


Lessons Learned: The Art of Customer Engagement

The moral of the story, folks?

When a customer asks you to build a case, don’t panic.

Ask no-oriented questions instead of singing your own praises! 😁

To your massive success
