Today’s Tip – Follow ups; A follow up can help a person remember meeting you. Wait no more than 3 days to say hey, thanks for the meeting.
Time to follow up, you met four people at the greatest event in the world the other night (your show). Or you have a meeting with the owner of a new club. Maybe he’s an international blogger guy/gal. Now you have to reenforce that with a follow up, something to make them remember you. Perhaps a nice post card… no, those are reminders. A phone call might be nice, or an email even. That blogger fellow might like some nice comments on his website. What to do, what to do. Well really any of those would be fine. It all depends on what would be the best given the situation really just don’t take more than three days to do it. Preferably wait one day and send the follow up on the second day.
Follow ups are important to you, they help people remember who you are. In the case of the blogger its easy just to drop in and leave a comment or two on the website, maybe a note on how it was great meeting them at the show that night, the fact that you respond on their blog shows you were listening to them, then compliment the site. For others a phone call ‘hey it was great meeting you, was wondering if we could meet for some coffee’. For the owner of the Venue a phone call thanking them and asking for feedback. Maybe setting up another time to show off your stuff. It all depends, pretend your dating if it helps you, because just like dating it has to be done in order to be successful.
