just felt like sharing my thoughts with some people who've probably been where I am and got through it anyway!
From my cold calling last week, I had 2 very interested prospects. I spent around 20 minutes talking to each one and they loved the idea of me implementing an email marketing system on their websites. 1 had to talk it over with his business partner, and the 2nd wanted to talk it over with his web designer, I said 'sure no worries' and called them back today like we agreed.
Whilst the 1st guy wasn't a flat out 'no', it was simply a 'not now'. He said his schedule is full right now so whilst this is a good service he'd have no need for it atm. Although he really like this and will call me back at the end of financial year in June.
The 2nd guy when I talked to him today said he hasn't spoken with his web designer or had a good think about the proposal. It seems as if all the interest he had disappeared and he didn't care anymore. When I said when would be a good time to call you back, he gave me the nicest rejection of 'I'll call you back' lol.
Now these are just 2 leads, but it's frustrating because I was 99% sure they were certain to turn into clients because they both really loved the idea only a few days ago.
I'm not going to waste anymore time thinking about these lost sales, but I just wanted to get this off my chest!
