I hear people all the time say "I made Alot of progess today in my offline business".
Question: "How many people did you ask for money from today"?
Cant have it if you arent asking anyone right?
Are you spending more time "preparing" to ask for money, than you are actually "asking"?
You see there are guys out there getting 5 sales per day walking door to door selling all kinds of things... But they walk door to door asking for the sale all day long...
There are telemarketers who close more sales in their sleep than most offliners do in a month, they work for places like ATT, and Yellow Book 360... and they do it day in and day out.
Is that because they are better than you?
No, its because they ask for the close ALL DAY LONG...Thats all they do.
They talk to hundreds of people, and everyday they pitch through all the rejection, and get down to asking 100 people for the close EVERYDAY to get that result.
Can you imagine some people do for 10 bucks per hour working 40 hours per week, what most of us cant get ourselves to for for $300 bucks per hour working 4-6 hours per week?
Thats all it takes to close a client or 2 clients per week if you focus.
Some think..."I didnt get into business to have to SELL... I want customers to come to me...from craigslist..."
That may seem hardcore...but hows direct mail working out for you? Email? Craigslist?
There may be a rare exception, but for most that isnt even worth a client per MONTH.
Is you computer bursting with offline business owners hunting you down?
You have to HUNT them down, and you have to "ask them for the close"!
The phone book is full of people you can ask all day long, while you are waiting for your email box to explode!
How many people is your organization asking for a close each day?
If you are doing what seems like alot of work every day and telling yourself you made progress...
I want to ask.
"How many people Did You ask For Money Today"?
Being in business is about asking as many people for money every single day as much as you possibly can.
So I promise if you ask 100 people for money you will have some.
Dont bore us, get top the chorus...Get down to the close.
The only people who are gonna give you money are the ones you are asking.
Are you focusing on everything in your business but making sure you ask alot of people for money everyday?
Well, you cant do business that way.
Gotta be closing...or its just a pipedream.
Good news, if you start asking people for the close 5 times per day...You'll get some.
How many people, in all of that work, did you ask for money from today?
