Here is why…
Here is some eye opening statistics according to "Brilliant Selling" by Jeremy Cassell and Tom Bird which shows that making as much contact with prospects, really does translate into results.
48% of salespeople never follow up with a prospect.
25% of salespeople make a second contact and stop.
12% of salespeople only make three contacts and stop.
"So – only 15% of salespeople make more than three contacts. What does that mean, then?
Well it means 85% of salespeople consistently waste golden opportunities to sell!"
2% of sales are made on the first contact.
3% of sales are made on the second contact.
5% of sales are made on the third contact.
10% of sales are made on the fourth contact.
80% of sales are made on fifth to twelfth contact.
"So, if you are like almost half of all the salespeople and make no more than on follow-up to your prospects, you are leaving 98% of your income on the table for someone else to come along and pick up."
Again, I bring this up because getting your credit back is only one small part of your life and it is only one small part of the bigger picture. I really think that much of everything we do is all connected and every bit we can do to get back on track, health, wealth, mental, personal, business, etc. will make a more prosperous life. And I truly hope we all can have this precious opportunity.
