Sales skills have not come naturally to me, but friendly persistence has been instrumental in the success of my business. I stayed in touch with one prospect for THREE years, occasionally calling, emailing, or forwarding an article of interest or my e-newsletter. He was finally ready for my services, and at that point, THANKED me for my exceptional follow-up skills. As long as you're not too persistent, people appreciate your staying in touch. Thanks for the reminder about this Robert.

Friendly persistence has paid off for me. Simply by staying in front of my subscribers on a weekly basis has afforded me the luxury of getting requests for my business "out of nowhere". Of course I followed my plan faithfully and put in the work to get those calls. I love how easy "friendly persistence" makes marketing your business.

It is a balance... you almost need to "read the energy" of your subscriber base (internet marketing) to know when to make an offer and when to hold off. It's a subtle dance between you and them and one that should never be taken for granted.

Thanks for another GREAT article, Robert.

It's true. Friendly persistence does pay off. The wisdom is in recognising the line between friendly persistence and pressure.
It's always worth trying to find a solution that works for both of you. Gentle reminders do produce results.
Thanks for another inspirational post.
