How much is am meeting or call worth to you ?

In striving to get the meeting does the customer match your ideal client profile

  • Can they become a customer for life

Struggling To Get A Sales Meeting Try These Tips

Approach 1 – The illegal phone box

  • The aim of this is to get the prospect to call us
  • We send them a mobile phone with a pre configured number
  • The prospect has to sign for the box
  • In the box are the instructions to press the green button twice – so they can call us
    • We can see the number so know who is calling

The difficulties with this approach

  • buying multiple sim cards can be a challenge
  • loading with credit
  • sourcing 10 phones at a time can be difficult ( might have to do second hand

Approach 2 – The Hamster Box

  • Send the prospect a live hamster in a box (difficult to ignore)
  • Note there is potential for this to go horribly wrong

Approach 3 – The Sweet Box

  • Send a box of sweets or sweet dispenser that is padlocked
  • They can only get the key or the code if they call

Approach 4 – The Out Of Date Sandwich

  • An old pre packaged sandwich with a note that says we would never sell out of date ….

If any of these work for you then a sales meeting should be scheduled and importantly the meeting should take place.
