Fiitfu is a Canadian company and like much of the British Commonwealth, we celebrate Boxing Day. Traditionally, this holiday was when employers would give their employees "Christmas boxes" full of goodies to celebrate the season. Whether or not you celebrate this holiday, we want to share our sale with you!

What makes us successful is how we deal with failure, mistakes, and let-downs. If we never failed, we would never learn, and so we must know that it is OK to try and to fail.
Think of all the great quotes about failure, like "'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all" (Alfred Lord Tennyson). The successful ones that first had bankruptcy, the stories (and quotes) are endless. So why do we fear failure, when it only pushes us forward?
Here at Fiitfu we just celebrated our 4th birthday!
For the event we sent out an email to our members with a form to RSVP to our birthday celebration. When customers RSVP'd, they were entered in a draw to win a Professional Package, part of our Virtual Assistant services.
And today we drew the winner!
Last week on our blog we talked about how well you are running your business if you are getting rejections. However, we know that hearing NO can take effect on one's morale.
That is why Fiitfu gives you tools to be sure that you are able to run your business effectively.
This month in our 2015 Fiitfu Follow-up Workbook Calendar (still available for purchase HERE as a download), we are all about supporting you in working through the "No's". On Week 29 we have a chart with 100 places for you to track your NO's and YES's. If you don't have our Calendar, and don't want to download via the link above, simply take a piece of paper and mark down spaces for 1 to 100. Your challenge is to decide what your "ASK" is going to be, then call 100 people over the week and mark down if they were a yes or a no. Remember, you will probably get more NO's then YES's—but that is the way it is for everyone!
For more support, you can also check out our recording with Andrea Waltz, co-author of the Go For No Book.
I am going to just say it straight: If you are NOT getting any rejections, then you are NOT working on income producing activities in your business.
Rejections are a key indicator that you are working your business right! They mean that you are:
- Asking people for the sale
- Asking them to join your team
- Asking them to have a party for you
- Asking them to give you a referral
- Asking them if they would like a sample
- Asking them to take a catalogue and sharing it with their friends at the office
- Asking them SOMETHING
This blog is timely, as we are working on a number of projects right now and it seems nothing gets done until you focus on the final details of ONE THING. And boy, does it feel fantastic when it is finally complete!
As an example of one of our projects, we are excited to be working with Ally Loprete - Radio Talk Show Host with "This Little Parent Stayed Home".
In preperation for our interview, and what we will be giving to her listeners as an extra bonus we had a number of fine details to work out BEFORE we could launch our landing page featuring the bonus. We had three weeks to put something together, and of course, I am working on it all on crunch time!
Now we have put our script together, chosen the graphics and wording for the landing page, figured out our special give away to her listeners, created a form, writen up the great give away book, attached that to our form, created a webinar for those that would like to learn more about Fiitfu, spell checked, linked it to Fiitfu—what else is there?
Here are 6 TIps on staying focussed on your project, to be sure you complete it today!
Create a Gift Certificate and make your clients HAPPY to hear from you!
We often hear from our clients that they fear following up because they don't know what to say, or they don't want to "bother" their clients.
Well, time to get over THAT!
And we have the perfect way to do it. If you are one of those that feel like you are a nuisance if you call your customers, then get creative and make them happy to hear from you!
A great way to do this is to create Gift Certificates and hand them out. BUT you can't just hand them out to anyone—there is a process that you have to follow for this. Let me explain.
Want to double your business this quarter?
Then create a referral program and put it into play! Referrals are a powerful way of growing your business.
Referrals allow you to:
- Stay connected with present clients.
- Earn new WARM LEADS and use testimonials that will really resonate with the referral.
- Create loyalty to your brand.
So lets get you started on your new referral program now!
At Fiitfu 95% of our clients come from referrals, and we highly advocate setting one up for your business (or perhaps revamping your present one) no matter how small or large your company is.
Here are 6 tips on getting started on your Referral Program.

Not liking what you do? Feeling overwhelmed? Feeling like it's no fun anymore? Where did the love go?
The key is to go back to what inspired you originally when you started your career.
Creating a follow-up plan is as important as your marketing plan, your business plan, and your financial plan for your business.
You may have seen the numbers before on sales statistics and know that 80% of sales are made after the 5th to 12th contact, and yet only 12% of us follow-up more than 3 times! You can really see why the number of people that rise to the top are limited.
At Fiitfu we are here to support you in making sure that YOU rise to the top, stand above the rest, and excel in your business because of your incredible follow-up.
