Right after CFC in Chicago, I did a one-hour consultation with CFC attendee, Tarry Nwaise, a designer from Madison, Tennessee. During that session, I told her, among other things, that timing is everything when it comes to marketing. And I encouraged her to reach out to some contacts she hadn’t talk to in a while. A week later, here’s the message she sent me, with the subject line: You Were Right!
I decided to take the first 2 hours of my days for my business or time to upgrade my skills. Last Tuesday was the day to make some cold calls and follow ups.
I started going down my list.
I e-mailed a past client at a healthcare facility and my next step was to walk over with some of my new business cards.
So I e-mailed her, in the e-mail asked about doing work for her and I said I was coming by to leave some cards.
When I got there, I ran right into her in the building.
She said, “I just got your e-mail.” We talked and I gave her my cards. Then as I was leaving she said she just remembered she does have a project for me.
She said “I will e-mail you. Good thing you came by today.”
You were right! Timing is everything.
Who can you call or visit today who just might have a project for you? Or, any “good timing” stories you have to tell?
