Too many SUCCESSFUL entrepreneurs ride the ‘Feast or Famine’ wave. They have almost too much business and are SO busy, or they’re worried, anxious, and restless because nothing is going on. There’s nothing more draining and exhausting than riding that wave all the time (it’s NOT a day at the beach, if you know what I mean). Here are two trustworthy ways to build your opt-in list and continuously connect with high quality prospects.
1. Communicate Collaboratively, Not Competitively
I’ve found this to be a major key to success when building a successful flow of prospects and clients. It really calls for a high level of trust and faith that you and your services are unique and successful, no matter whoever else is doing what you do. But you know what? There really is enough to go around and when you share with and through others, you really set yourself up to receive more.
Find strategic partners and other like-minded entrepreneurs who are willing and happy to share their contacts with you and be more than happy to do the same for them. (I personally love sharing the skills of talented entrepreneurs with others. ) You’re already coming with a seal of approval and those prospects who join your stay in touch tool will be happy to be there. You can connect with partners in many ways. For upping your on-line presence and getting more people to join your e-zine (if this is one of your stay in touch tools) two free services that I recommend are: ListHero.com and Ezinefire.com. This is where you share subscribers with other e-zine authors who have similar themes to yours. You host them on your site and they host you on yours. AND the software program takes care of it all. Easy to use and more for all. Try it.
2. Appreciate Your Prospects
This is really where I see a lot of solo-entrepreneurs make mistakes when it comes to connecting with high quality prospects. They are so anxious about not having enough prospects that when they get them, they don’t even let the celebration take place. Focus your energy on really appreciating those prospects that have joined you. Don’t let your stay in touch tool community become just “a list" or “a number. " Personally, I thank every subscriber who joins me. I thank them with gifts of a free chapter and e-course when they join, but I also thank them energetically. I am so appreciative of being able to share my coaching and I let them know it. Thank you, thank you, and thank you! It’s even better when I hear from someone who’s joined and I get to connect with them over email or phone, but even when I don’t, I still am sure to recognize them as a person, not a number, and appreciate that we are now connected. We can be so removed from our prospects with all of our automation these days. Really acknowledge each person that joins you and your business. You’ll experience a windfall of prosperity as a result. Again, try it, then get in touch and let me know what happened. :)
