You can do this!!
We have a lot of tools at our disposal, the question is: Are we using them? Likely the answer is no. However we should! So ask yourself how to use your technology tools to calibrate yourself for success.
This is your greatest tool. Your phone is likely the most under used tool you have in your toolbox. Everyone has one, but no one is using them to make phone calls. Try to dial your contacts, and start the conversation.
Email – Use Wisely
Your email is a good tool to follow up those phone calls with. Send them the details, or more information. Be sure to ask for their email address when you are talking with them on the phone. Prepare them by telling them your email address so they expect that email coming from you.
Close the deal on the phone while talking with them. Then get their signature in writing.
The Calendar – Remember this!
The calendar is a tool that you can use to schedule appointments with. If you are planning in advance, you should have the important dates scheduled here.
There is no excuse for missing appointments! Because if you are using your tools, you won’t miss the date!
Text Messages – The instant mess!
Don’t use text messages to communicate important ideas and information. Its best to do this verbally over the phone. If you don’t want an instant mess, use sparingly. Therefore, use your tools for what they work for. Don’t expect people to know you from texting.
Having A Website
Chances are the only people that will visit your website are people you talk on the phone with, or have sent an email to. No one else is going to find your site online. So tell people about your website in person, on the phone, and via email.
Therefore, don’t expect miracles. Even with a good website, you likely won’t see results. You should plan on closing deals in person.
Use all your tools correctly with a thorough understanding of them, and when and where to use each one. Therefore you can be successful, if you use them wisely. Be wise, use your mind!
Use your technology to calibrate yourself to success.
