Why I feel so good... even if they didn't buy

11 replies
Hi guys,

I just sent out a great offer. Within a few hours, I got several emails. Around 5 people (I think) wanted to buy the product, but they honestly told me they don't have the funds available (or they don't even have money to pay the rent or something like that).

On a busy day, I would simply ignore this as I clearly wouldn't make any sales from them. But this time, I emailed back and empathize with them. I also gave them a quality free report that I think could greatly improve their present condition. And I told them to let me know if they need anything.

So I won't get any sales from this little extra effort? Who cares? Perhaps they might spread the word on how I helped them despite not getting anything back. Or perhaps they might become my customers in the future if their situation improves. But who cares?

The important thing is that I feel happy now. I feel good being able to help people and improve their life in any small way I can. And I'll start doing this more often.

The problem with some people is that when they know they won't be getting anything (financially) in return, they won't spend the time or effort to interact with people. But who cares about the money? It's about feeling happy and fulfilled that we've made a difference in our own little way.

Happy New Year!

    Michael,

    I have one friend in the US who hasn't marketed her business in over 2 years because her referrals and word-of-mouth bring in too many clients for her to keep up with.

    All because of her stellar customer service. Its a great way to market!

      I'm also trying to create the same approach.. word-to-word is most and best marketing strategy ever.

    I think this is a great idea when you have the time available... Sure these people can't afford your product now.. But soon they will hopefully have cash again and you have already build a real rapport with them. I think good customer service can help drive sales depending on your market.. Keep up the good work.. Its nice to know that there are some courteous marketers out there..

    When it comes to success in your life the law of reciprocity will help you gain unparallel amounts of success. The more you help others gain what they are looking for the more you will be helped. It may not seem like this is the case on the surface but you cannot give without receiving back.

    Hi Michael,

    You scored high on the karma-meter, as nothing is more important than showing compassion and offering some valued insight to improve someone's condition.

    Each creative act is prospered. Think Big Picture, feel good about it and attract more wonderful circumstances into your life.

    Well Done

    RB

    You have me in the spirit of giving here now as I’ve been thinking about what you have done.

    Would a few of you be willing to get together and put together a package that we can give away for free to people that may need help?

    We could discuss what needs to be in the package and see what we have that we can put together in a business starter package.

    I have a bunch of stuff that I can select from. Just a thought.

    • Hey, I think I might be on your list! Very cool. It's so good to see that people carry the spirit of giving in their hearts. To me, it's one of the most important cornerstones in practicing spiritual abundance. It flows and carries over to every other part of your life, as well.

      That's a great idea! I'm all for sharing the wealth. There's so much good stuff out there that could really help the people who are ready and willing to receive it!

        I think we should build a complete package that someone could use to get started totally free and build themselves some seed money. I'll work on a list of the stuff I have and post it. What do you think we should put together?
