Do you hate trying to sell your ‘thing’ in case people say NO? You’re not the only one.
What if I told you many sales professionals THEMSELVES give up even after just ONE ATTEMPT at a sale – yet various studies all agree on the same thing – 4 out of 5 (80%) prospects only say YES on the FIFTH FOLLOW UP. (Kudos to MarketingDonut.)
Let’s just read that again! FIVE. Yes, five follow-ups after the first sales contact until you get your yes…Pukka trained sales people, not just small business owners like you, give up after a surprisingly small number of attempts:
44% give up after one
22% give up after two
14% give up after three
12% give up after four
Leaving 8% securing the enormous 80% of those prospects who will give a huge FOUR NOs before you secure your YES.
So just one word: Persevere.
