  3. 3. At First GlanceGetting Leads<br />It Begins With Getting Noticed<br />Anonymity is the greatest barrier to business<br />success.<br />Put another way – if no one notices you, if you<br />don’t get that first glance and know what to do<br />with it, then you are already sunk in the water. <br />We’ll help you get noticed and show you proven<br />strategies for when a lead does look your way.<br />Get noticed and make it comfortable for your<br />leads to get to know you more. <br />
  4. 4. Breaking The IceSetting Appointments<br />Approachability is King<br />In business, and in dating, people often make the<br />same mistake – jumping ahead before the other<br />person is ready.<br />Before you can go straight to talking about the<br />deal or your services you need to make sure your<br />potential client is comfortable.<br />You need to break the ice. <br />Getting a lead doesn’t mean anything if they<br />won’t take the next step. So take some small<br />steps so they will set an appointment to continue<br />the conversation.<br />
  5. 5. First DateInitial Consultation<br />Making Them Feel Good<br />This is your big chance to make a great ‘first<br />impression’.<br />Your lead has given you enough trust to ‘meet up<br />with you’…now, how are you going to meet and<br />exceed their expectations?<br />Experience shows that the most successful<br />businesses have a system for educating their<br />potential clients about what they do and how<br />they can help them. They address their<br />concerns, tell a story about what will happen,<br />and plant seeds for future value. <br />This starts and sets the tone of the relationship.<br />Don’t leave it up to chance.<br />

  7. 7. Helping Them Be Comfortable<br />Once the deal or service is done many business<br />owners shake hands, thank their customers, and<br />tell them to contact them if they need anything.<br />But few actually do anything after that to show<br />they mean it…and they miss a HUGE opportunity.<br />After people have received valuable service from<br />you they are in a prime limited time frame to<br />really talk about you, and how you helped them.<br />Be smart with our systems to help your<br />customers and clients join an engaged<br />community of past clients.
