So what will you do now that he has decided not to call back? What can you do? When a client has put you on hold?

You shouldn't fret! It's one of those things in business. Don't be the businessman that sits back, waiting for a client to call back. We shall consider a number of things you could do at this time.

  1. Identify where those prospects are coming from. Always ask about where your new customers heard about your business. Keep record of this information. It is going to help you in making decisions on advertisement.
  2. Intensify on your advertisement strategies; most especially on platforms that your prospects are coming from. According to statistics you can trust, the platform where you have the most prospects is where you would get the most customers.
  3. Keep a log of this people and put an automated prompt in place to contact them and remind them about the business conversation they initiated.
  4. Review your pricing: If the wait is becoming too long, ask if your prospect has a budget you didn't match. Work out means to get the job done within the means of the client.

Anyone that inquires about your products or services is a very important person to you. Now what if he disappears after your first contact?

We shall consider the possibilities in the next few posts. I'm calling it the "Clients' anatomy". If that client hasn't responded, it's could mean a number of things:

  1. He is not ready for business at the moment. Maybe he doesn't have the money yet or he doesn't yet feel the need to patronize you.
  2. He's currently considering other options. In a business of many competitors, you can be sure that you would have many of this case.
  3. He forgot about your discussion. This may be temporal or permanent.
  4. He didn't mean to patronize you from DAY 1. He's just having fun asking about your products or services. You will meet a few of this set of prospects. Have you ever window-shopped? You should expect the same courtesy from a Good Samaritan :)
  5. He is doing a price survey. Such prospect actually is interested in knowing the pricing for your merchandise for one of the following reasons.
    1. He perceives that he needs it in the nearest future.
    2. He's trying to get the best pricing.
    3. He wants to start a similar business and he think it's wise to know how much his future competitors are making.

So what will you do now that he has decided not to call back? What can you do? When a client has put you on hold? Read: Client’s Anatomy: What to do while waiting for his call

Do you know you can get kicked out of your social media anytime without notification or apology? Read this.

I made this post earlier this year on BBM and I wished that Linda Ikeji read it before her blog got booted off Google's servers.
Let this be lessons for everyone of us.

Are you one of those that prides on the number of followers you have on social media? Don't grow grey hair before you realize Mark Zuckerberg doesn't know you. Your Facebook page is NOT yours, your WEBSITE is.

Guess your Bloggers, Blogspot and WordPress blogs are not yours neither :)
