Some questions first…
- Are you in business?
- Do you have a product or service people want/need?
- Do you have followers, fans, and past clients in your network?
- Do you communicate with them and share valuable content?
So why are you not asking for the sale?
What do you think it takes to build a successfull online business these days? do you think its high converting Facebook adverts, do you think its a complicated funnel, do you think its being better than EVERYONE else in your niche?
In my view you just need to ask for the sale more often.
Whats the point in collecting followers and fans if you never activate them into working with you properly.
Whats the point in doing just one call to action on your social media…or emailing your list just once?
We are busy people, we miss shit, we have a million things going on and forget to buy the things we want to…messages get lost, intentions lose their power.
Folks need reminding, they need encouraging, they need prompting.
To buy that is.
But what if people switch off, unsubscribe…tell me I’m annoying?
Well they are not your people…and meanwhile the people who are your people are not seeing enough of your stuff to get them across the line.
How much is too much?
Well it depends. Over the weekend I sent out 4 emails about my 10 day sales challenge…and it brought in 10 new buyers.
I probably could have sent a couple more to be fair.
If you know every email you send out makes you a couple of hundred pounds, but loses you a couple of subscribers, which would you choose? More money or more subscribers?
If you want tyre kickers, folks hanging around to see what you are up to, or those who are on your list just to enjoy your free content, then keep on tip toeing around those call to action posts.
If you want action takers, people who are ready to invest…then keep asking for the sale, keep inviting people to work with you…because then they will know you are serious about your stuff, you believe in the transformation for your clients, you are not scared to out yourself out there.
When your mission is strong, its easier to show up.
My mission is to prevent brilliantly talented business owners never reaching their potential because they were too scared to think big and be brave when it comes to impact AND income in their business.
