Call and follow up on people when you meet them, or work with them. If time goes by, don’t forget you have to call them again to remind them you are around. Most people get nervous with a situation like this. So, today I am going to explain some options you have. First off, a follow up helps you keep in touch with a client, friend or businesses working with you. Take into consideration that most people are indeed busy. So when you don’t get a replay, stay calm.
When is the proper time to make a follow up happen? There are a few cases; Just meeting a person(s) for the first time. Wait between 1-3 days to contact them and thank them. I try to get back by the second day. Waiting any longer than 3 days usually places you in the forgotten stage. Another great way to stay in a person’s mind is handling an email or follow up call once every month.
What if you respond in the correct amount of time and nothing comes back from it? Fear not! All you have to do is email them or call them to say “hi, just wishing you a great week!” or something in that field. You are writing to let them see your name, as a personal reminder that you had a conversation going on. Just be nice, stay away from asking them about what you originally wrote to them about. Give them the floor. It will help.
A little side note; Always contact those on blogs, social medias, and other online avenues. Keep in touch with simply making your name available. On Facebook, like status, or comment. On blogs, read and respond to their blogs or any comments left on your blog. Always respond, keep in the eyes of people to keep in the motion of possibility! You get one change to meet someone, you have a lifetime to make sure you are remembered.
