MyMomsbiz

Imagine running a successful business AND still having a balanced life with your family. Really? Can it be true—can I do this?

Imagine being there every day after school, or at each school performance, at home with your kids when they are sick, or never having to miss things that you REALLY want to be at.

Who has heard of a successful woman having balance as well—don't you have to sacrifice one for the other?

At Fiitfu one of our MAIN GOALS is to help women in business become more efficient and effective, thus making them more profitable, and ultimately allowing them to spend more time with their families.

Don't you think the world would be a better place if parents could spend more time with their kids AND there were more RICH WOMEN in the world.

We do! This is why we created this video, MY MOMS BIZ, to help women realize that what they do does make a difference.

Bird Eating Worm clip art

There's an old saying, "The Early Bird Gets The Worm", but in this day and age where we have technology that allows us to work with people all across the country, time isn't so much the factor as is the QUALITY and the QUANTITY of a follow-up.

According to Marketing Metrics, the probability of selling to a new prospect is only 5–20% however the probability of selling to an existing client is 60–70%! And yet, many of us feel fear in following up with our existing customers.

What if I told you that just ONE more call per day, would garner over 50 new customers this year.

Or that one more follow-up per week would increase your sales by 10% this month.

Or that one more ask for a referral a day would DOUBLE your customer base in 12 months.

Would you do it? Would you pick up the phone? Would you make the call to make a difference in your business?

The Harm of NOT following up

Not following up has one obvious failing—you don't get a sale. But there are also other factors involved. Recent research has shown us that customers these days are not happy with the way they are being serviced by their account representatives, and this is something that has to change if you want to grow your business.

By not following up with a client, you are not only breaking your word, and falling off a clients radar, but you might be missing out on more than you realize. Consider the following statistics when it comes to not following up.

Research from Marketing Metrics states that the probability of selling to a new customer ranges from 5 to 20%. However, the probablity of selling to an existing customer is 60 to 70%. You don't have to be a mathmetician to realize how staggering those numbers are, and that causes me to wonder why people don't follow up.

10 Questions To Ask To Get Influencial Testimonials

It takes more than someone saying "I really liked working with Jan, and I would work with her again" to make an impression.

Imagine if someone instead said, "When I worked with Jan, she got back to me right away when I sent an email, she answered all of my questions AND in the end she saved me over $1000!"
Wouldn't THAT be a better testimonial, it explained that Jan was efficient, knowledgeable, and able to save you money.  Three traits in one testimonial!

Remember, your testimonials are like mini sales pitches, without being a sales pitch, because it is not YOU that is saying it!  So make sure when you print them out, they are powerful!

Here are 10 Awesome Questions to ask when asking for a Testimonial.

You don't have to use them all at once, pick two or three and see what you get back:

How to Market Your Testimonials


 

Do you remember the old ad with Heather Locklear for Faberge Organics Shampoo "They will tell two friends and so on and so on". This is how the power of a testimonial can really take off!

Testimonials are like having your own sales team out there talking about your product or service. When someone talks about your business, friends listen and THIS is what can really drive sales forward, especially when it is all good feedback.

Think about the last time you were looking for a good restaurant or hotel. Many of us will ask others if they have any recommendations that they would like to share. When you get a raving review, aren't you more inclined to take the chance and visit the establishment?

UNREAL



UNREAL 
That was the subject line on an email that I got yesterday morning...
It was one that I was a little concerned about, UNREAL is usually a GOOD thing, however it could be a way to describe something bad as well.
Definition of unreal: 
  1. Not real or substantial; illusory.
  2. So remarkable as to elicit disbelief; fantastic.
  3. Surreal.
Well UNREAL was a great way for all of us at Fiitfu to start our day, as we got this testimonial from Kate McKenzie from Origami Owl.

4 Questions to ask yourself when creating your Follow-up Plan


Creating a follow-up plan is as important as your marketing plan, your business plan, and your financial plan for your business.
