How do you communicate with your customers? Do you send thank you cards to your clients? Did you know that not saying thank you to a customer hurts your business more than saying thank you helps. Let me say that again. Not saying thank you hurts your business more than saying thank you helps. What I mean by that is our customers and clients expect to receive a thank you; especially if they spend a lot of money with us. They expect us to at least acknowledge and thank them. If I buy a house, I expect a thank you. If I buy a car, I expect a thank you. If I buy a Snickers I don't necessarily expect a thank you. Big ticket items = increased expectations If you don't send thank you cards to your clients, do you know what they are thinking? They are thinking you don't care about them! Studies show the reason why we lose 68% of our clients and customers is because they don't think we care about them. Here is a simple solution I found to let my customers know I care about them. http://www.remembergreetingcards.com/retail/najmes For $5.48 a year I can send 4 custom greeting cards to my clients to keep in touch with them and let them know I appreciate them. How much is one dedicated, loyal, and happy client worth to you? Is it worth $5.48 a year? If so watch this 3 minute video for more information: http://www.remembergreetingcards.com/retail/najmes Once you watch the video, email me back and I'll be happy to help you get started.

Even some of the most experienced business owners carry this dirty little secret: they hate to sell. It's ironic because selling and buying are what keep us in business. So why the disconnect? Here are a few of the usual culprits: ---> You don't want to be pushy- everyone has a horror story of a pushy salesperson and you certainly don't want to be lumped into that category --->You fear rejection. You make a great offer, someone says "No" and you walk away feeling an inch tall. Ouch. ---> You hate slipping into "sales mode". It doesn't feel natural and you hate yourself afterwards. What if selling could happen just by being YOU? What if your normal day to day actions sparked trust so sales flow effortlessly? What if you discovered your most persuasive tool was to simply engage with others? If you struggle with these dilemmas, you're not alone... the great news is there is a solution and it's so much easier than you think!
