Create a weekly magic list

check listWho will you reach out to? What will you create?

If you are in sales (and if you own the business, you are in sales), you have to talk to people all the time.

Every day, every week, every month you have to pick up the phone and make calls.

You can complain about it as much as you like, but you still have to make those calls.

So, since complaining isn’t going to get rid of them, why not try something different?

Sit quietly at the beginning of the week and ask yourself who you want to talk to in the coming week.

Who do you need to call back? Who haven’t you checked in with lately? Who did you meet recently? Which of your clients have birthdays, anniversaries or other events coming up?

If you are using some form of Customer Relationship Management system, it may have some reports you can use to generate your list of people to call.

I’ve used this process for years. It’s astonishing what can happen. Just the routine of making the calls starts things moving.
