Today I want to talk to you about FOLLOW UP!  Yes, you know you not doing enough follow up IF you are doing any at all, right?

I’ve been in business for 15 years now and before that I worked with a  couple of organizations where I was out in the community locally in Northern California.  I became  really good with following up because I knew that I had to continue the conversation to build relationships.

When I started my own business, it seems that all I did was Networking and Follow Up.  Why?  This was before websites were as popular as they are now AND social media wasn’t even around.  But guess what?

Most of my sales and new clients still come from Follow Up!

Today’s Tip – Key Things You Should be Doing When you are Networking!

Last week I explained why you should be networking more, what you need to be doing when you network and why it’s important to go to several events.  Today I’m going to talk about some key things you should be doing.  These are things I teach to my clients and with those who are in my Live Big Mastermind Group.

For those of you who have a hard time remembering all of the things you should be talking about when you meet someone at a networking event, here are some great tips.

screenshot video tip 03.24.16Create a Cheat Sheet. Write a list of all of the key things you need to remember to talk about while you are networking.  Read it before you go into the event.  Or if everyone is going around the room or table making introductions, just hold your cheat sheet while giving yours.  There’s nothing wrong with that.  I always have a list of the top three things I want to talk about when I go to a networking event because my topics are always changing.  For example, I might want to talk about a live event or a teleconference I’m participating in.  I might be promoting a free coaching call with me or I want to get speaking gigs and referrals.  Your cheat sheet or list will keep you on track.  Don’t just talk about what you DO, remember to ASK for what you NEED!  

Get the Follow UP Call or Meeting Scheduled.  If you never get to the follow up call, you are probably not going to be doing business with the people you’ve just met at networking events.  So try to schedule those “get to know you” calls while you are at the networking event.  This is how you’re going to learn more about how you can help each other.  Some of these calls will turn into prospects but you want to look at people as a referral source first.  Don’t come across as desperate and too salesy!

Work the Room.  You have to work the room.  Don’t talk to any one person too long. Try to learn as much as you can about them and get their contact information and move on.  You have to do more than just handing out your information.  Why?  Because it’s likely that nothing will be done with that information.  You can’t rely solely on your marketing materials to incite someone to follow up with you.  You have to get the other person’s contact information and take the initiative to follow up with them!

 

I love Networking and still teach all about it. Click here to review a variety of my training materials. Or come to one of my live events in Sacramento, the next one is in July – you’ll find the schedule here:  LiveBigEvents.com. You’ll also get some great tips by signing up on my email list or click here to schedule a strategy session with me.

Here’s to your success!

Let me get my hands on YOUR business and I’ll show you how to JUMPSTART it and FAST!

PS – Come talk with me about this and more in a complimentary business strategy session by clicking here: http://www.AskKat.biz. Talk to you soon!

Networking and speaking in my business are two of the most important and revenue producing activities that I do. BUT it’s because of my extensive follow up system and engagement before, during and after an event that makes it more profitable.

One thing I see with other speakers and entrepreneurs is they collect a TON of business cards at events or fill in forms, contact info, etc. however they RARELY do anything with them. (At least not enough with them.)

On this video I share a few tips on what YOU CAN DO with those new contacts and business cards that you collect so you know how to better maximize your time and investment in attending events.

Because there are some very important NO-NO’s that you want to be aware of and believe it or not, this doesn’t necessarily come natural to most people.

[iframe id=”https://www.youtube.com/embed/5dYmna7_2L0″ align=”center” mode=”normal” autoplay=”no”]

 

Now, one of the most important things to do with those cards is sort them.

  • By where you met them
  • Maybe by whether they are Hot, Warm or Cold leads OR if they’re JV (joint venture/referral) type sources
  • Whether they are Auto Adds or Not Auto Adds – meaning if you have their approval to add them to your database/email newsletter or not. Just because they actually give you their card does not mean they give you permission to email them, you must get a Verbal Opt In from them. (I explain all of this in depth in my Jumpstart Your Marketing® Follow Up System)

Then of course you have to do something with them – you want to follow up in 4 different ways with ALL contacts:

  • call,
  • email,
  • mail and
  • connect with them on social media too!

The other, second most important thing to do with those business cards, is to actually get them entered into your database (email marketing system or shopping cart) – DATA ENTRY is the top reason why most entrepreneurs do not do enough follow up because they don’t delegate this step. You think you’re going to get around to doing this yourself but let’s face it, most of you are not nor should you!

If you’d like to know more about my Jumpstart Your Marketing® Follow Up System to help you get all this in place, get templates of what to send/say and more go to www.JumpstartYourFollowUp.com.
