You were right all along!
Time to throw all this spamming Internet blogged email bombardment gibberish away and listen to your true inner voice. Simple. Back to basics and where you know best…here we come!
I cannot sit still…physically as a kid…and now mentally, as a nearly half-century aged adult. Absolutely NOT complaining…
As a kid, since 1974, I grew up in the gym or the pool of my 800 populated town in Saskatchewan Canada. Continuing my addiction to sports, I headed to the big city to University (heck, the campus was bigger than my entire town!) and received honors for a Major in Physical Education Bachelors’ Degree. I remember back in high school, acquiring most MVP awards and sitting with streams of ribbons, blocks of trophies, and plaques of acknowledgements and bursaries. I was often called ‘The Robot Gal’…muscle memory was and still is EXTREMELY strong and precisely accurate. I was and am totally gifted!
Since 2009, I have come to learn that marketing is like playing a favorite sport.
Whether it is the baseball pitch, bat connection, basketball dunking, the football throw, curling delivery, golf swing, etc…all can NOT be successful without the follow through. THE MOST EFFECTIVE and SUCCESSFUL results are the same when it comes to MARKETING.
The SECRET to SUCCESSFUL MARKETING (Increased Sales and Higher Client Base) is the FOLLOW THROUGH—the ENDORSEMENT from previous clients/purchasers.
This is where quality again takes over from quantity. Take a look at LinkedIn…sure, tons of endorsements…but where are the ‘bulk’ of the ‘heart and voice’ those you’ve actually served and are these thousands actually being considered by the prospecting purchaser?
Now is the time for you to remember back to when our accomplishments and gifts where were recognized and prestigiously noticed. YEP…now is the time for you to REACH OUT to your previous clients (not in bulk mail…but personally) and include them with your new mission.
You WILL BE SURPRISED AT THE POSITIVE RESULTS. Your extra time for the FOLLOW THROUGH will pay off.
This article will guide you into SUCCESSFUL MARKETING. You will learn:
- The Power of Viral Endorsements
- Why it is Important to Have Previous Clients Coming Back
- Working Tips on How You Can Receive Testimonies
YES, you deserve to blanket yourself in your accomplishments. Read, bask, and then pass on these inspiring words created JUST FOR YOU. You deserve it! Others need to know about YOU…want to learn/be entertained from what YOU have to offer.
THE POWER OF VIRAL ENDORSEMENTS
The secret for a successful business and more sales are through previous HAPPY clients/purchasers. Their powerful testimonies will open many more doors to even more opportunities and sales.
Uplifting personal endorsements, business referral recommendations, or 5-star book reviews provide the power. Your SEARCHING FUTURE PROSPECTS will be happy to be given the BEST DIRECTION to purchase and…spread YOU around. These folks WILL BECOME your marketers…saving you work and THE BEST in the business!
WHY Will Previous happy Clients COME BACK?
There’s an already established:
- Friendship and trust—a relationship.
- Sense of Respect and Community Connection—a genuine feeling of familiarity.
- Simple—no more searching as you will provide the solution to their problems and fulfill their needs.
HOW To RECEIVE TESTIMONIES?
- JUST ASK – Many previous happy clients will take the time with you as they know you have taken the time for them. They are now contributing to your success and you should be honored as such by:
– Setting up client appreciation days or services (a reduction in future services)
– Providing exposure to enhance their needs
For example: I create functional links to endorsements so the viewers are directed back to the clients’ site…the link works as SEO, giving them even more exposure while boosting them higher in the search engines.
Note: Keep in mind…GIVE, Give, and then give even more…and your efforts will pay off (not instantaneously…but eventually…but do NOT keep this as your inner motive!).
- GIVE TIME – Be clear on what it is you are searching for in a testimony. Provide examples…and don’t pressure the happy client to submit right away. Provide specific details on what you will do in return. Although many do NOT want anything, I consider an extended service as a thank you gift.
- RECIPROCATE – If asked, be prepared to return the favor.
