“you got lucky”
Funny story today:
A few days back, I hopped on a call with a potential client.
One of the first questions I ask on sales calls goes like this:
“What motivated you to hop on a call with me today?”
Usually, people will say something like they want to make more money from their emails.
But this bloke?
He said (paraphrasing):
“Uh, idk I guess you got lucky.”
Maaaaaaaaaaaajor red flag.
Then he went on to say something about doing more split tests (???).
I don’t consider myself “lucky” for the privilege of you wasting my time.
(Okay, I didn’t say that exactly, but I should’ve.)
We chatted for a few more minutes and agreed to hang up.
Truth be told… I still don’t know why he wanted to hop on a call.
Here’s why I bring it up:
If you’re interested in booking a call with me by replying to one of these emails, have a reason for booking a call. I’m not in the wasting time bidness.
Your reason could be just about anything else like…
* Wanting to make more cashola every time we hit “send.”
* Not having the time to write emails or develop a strategy.
* Helping you have a 6-figure product launch.
* Creating a rabid fan base who devour everything you promote.
The list goes on…
And if you’re a freelancer?
Ask that question at the beginning of your sales calls to snuff out time vampires before you have a lengthy sales call with them.
That’s all I have today.
Grab a time on my calendar (here) if you have a proven offer, a list, and don’t wanna work to make more moolah with email.
