It’s the Little Things That Make a BIG Difference in Your Business
Posted Sep 22 2011 8:00am
A lot of times business owners think that in order to get their business to where they’d like it to be, they have to completely overhaul everything they do…
But reality is a lot simpler.
The little things can have a HUGE impact.
After a networking event email one or two people and invite them to coffee
After coffee, call or send a handwritten note thanking them for meeting with you
After talking with a prospect, send an email with more details on your program and schedule a time to check in
Send a thank you note EVERY time you get a referral to that referral source
Send a thank you note EVERY time a new client signs on with you
Exceed Expectations. You don’t have to give 150% service, even 101% can have an impact
Call to check in with your current clients, past clients, prospects, referral sources, and everyone in your network. Pick one or two people per day and call to see how they’re doing and if you can help them in any way
Connect the people you meet with other people or resources
Send a little “just because” card to someone
Have a positive attitude and SMILE every time you pick up the phone or when someone walks in the door
Spend a little time every day thinking about one small thing you can do for someone
Check in with your current clients and ask for feedback
Check in with your referral sources and ask for feedback
Change your email signature to ask for referrals
Send a note to a current or past client asking for a referral
Admit a mistake
Pick one small thing to do each day, every day and build it into your day. Which of these ideas will you do today? Tomorrow?
