In a perfect world, with no hurdles or challenges, if you could snap your fingers and presto, your week would have — how many — meetings with prospects ready and waiting for you?
The majority of the people in my workshops do not know this answer, because, they spend so much time trying to set appointments that their real job is “appointment seeker”, not sales person. And their results are so poor.
A great week is one in which they are able to set enough appointments. This is the first metric in the pursuit of business — the appointment per contact, or per call made.
What if there was a method that would give you 1 out of every 2 or 2 out of every 3 or 8 out of every 10?What if your appointments were a given?
Linkedin, used gracefully, with a non-threatening profile can produce appointments with up to 80% of the people we choose.
