Follow up. Why do so many women entrepreneurs hate those two words?
Is it that we forget? It is time management? Or is it the fear of rejection?
I believe it's a combination of all three!
If you don't have a system on how and when to follow up then most likely you are going to forget.
If you let time control you instead of using a planner or blocking specific time to do the follow up then you won't be doing it.
If you allow the gremlins aka...chatter of rejection to continue then you will never step outside your comfort zone and actually follow up.
Let me add that we are all guilty of this, even me. There are times that I battle all of the above.
Following up should be part of your DAILY marketing strategy.
But what if you don't have enough people to follow up with daily? Then you need to get out there and meet new people or follow up with your list you currently have.
Following up is about creating a habit that works for you and doing it consistently. I don't care if you use a CRM, a voice reminder or a piece of paper - just do it.
