Here's what happened:
The guy who answered the phone asked what my call was pertaining to and I told him. He comes back and tells me he doesn't know if the owner is interested but that he is starting a T-shirt design business.
He asked about my services and what I offer, so I pitched him.
He said ok, what do I need to do?
I asked him questions about his business so I could create the content for his site. It's a 5 page website at $599.00 plus $29.95 a month for hosting. Residual income baby.
Transitioned into the close and asked him when I could pick up a check. He says, "Come on by right now."
So I went by there this morning, picked up the check, and cashed it.
This call happened around 9:30 this morning and I had a check in my hand by 11:00.
My point is, I got business from the person who answered the phone, not necessarily the business owner who I called originally.
And another thing, do not worry about conversion rate. It only took me between 200-250 calls. Keep motivated and plugging away. It will happen, believe me.
Take that to the bank!
