Make it a habit to collect names
How to Grow Your Email List...
Make it a habit to collect names & emails where ever you're at while keeping in mind you are building a permission-based list.
  • Networking events - Let new contacts know that you will add them to your Newsletter to start a better relationship.
  • Collect addresses at Trade shows - Put out a draw box labelled 'Sign up for our monthly tips and be entered into a draw to win a valuable prize!'
  • Speaking at an event? - Have a sign up sheet with name, email and a check box for Newsletter sign-up. Remember you are the expert they came to see!
  • Have a sign-up sheet at your place of business. For a restaurant you may want to offer a monthly draw for a free lunch!
  • Website Sign Up BoxMake it a habit of all your employees whether in person or on the phone to collect info & permission!
  • Have a sign-up box on all your web pages (see above example). Capture those who are not ready to buy today but may in the future.
  • Have a 'Forward to a Friend or Colleague' link on all your email campaigns. Remember existing clients are your best source for referrals.
At eXtra Contact, our clients have doubled their their databases within the first three months. Remember... Your database is your most valuable asset when looking to sell your business!

Taking notes during a sales call can help you make the sale.
  • It shows you are sincere in learning more about the prospect's situation;
  • Encourages better listening skills;
  • More accurate than your memory.
Send a follow up email or thank you card, mentioning one of the key points from your notes. Review your notes before any future meetings.
