When I started out on my entrepreneurial journey way back in 2014 I was really lucky because I would get referrals from the local authority and from past clients.
At one point I had more clients than I could cope with but then things changed…
Watch, Listen or Read on to find out how a chance social media post managed to save my business from complete extinction and exactly what you can do to make sure your business survives!
... the local authority lost the bid and the new service commissioned their own services rather than utilising the services in the local area.
While things became difficult, I managed to fare better than others, many fantastic businesses ended up closing down because they didn’t know how to make it online.
Because I had seen such success I knew that I had a viable service and knew it was worth saving.
But for some reason, no matter how difficult things got I resisted learning to sell…
The knock on effect was that there was a period of a few months when I had no clients at all…
This left me with two choices:
Thankfully, the universe stepped in and up popped a social media post about this thing called ‘Sales School’ by Kendrick Shope right into my Facebook feed!
In the first week I learned this one stat which radically transformed my business:
“50% of all sales are made in the follow up!”
That was insane to me!
I had been sending random emails or posts but never been effective at following up (especially not enough to actually convert leads into sales!)
But, that wasn’t the only nugget-o-wisdom I also learned that it takes between 7-11 ‘touches’ before someone will buy from you.
Because I had been very good at getting traffic and leads prior to this point, just learning these two things enabled my business to go from stress, pain and frustration to pain sailing!
My email list got a slight shock because they went from being spoken to maybe once a month to being emailed and sold to every single day!
Yes, my email list shrank by 25% when lots of people protested.
But, those people probably wouldn’t have bought from me anyway.
What was crazy, the first day I wrote a ‘sales’ style newsletter I got clients.
In the first 7 days I ended up selling every single day and this is when my business took a turning point.
Now, you may be thinking OK that’s great for you but WTF am I supposed to do with that?
