You delete countless emails.
Avoid 1000's of phone calls.
Hang up on too many sales calls made to you to even count.
Because you received an unwanted request from someone who didn't blueprint it out:
Who is their customer?
What do they think?
What are their fears?
What are their habits?
What do they want?
What do they need that person has?
Start with the knowledge of your customer.
Ask a thought provoking question , on a subject they are concerned with.
Get an engagement, not an email deletion, phone call avoidance, or someone hanging up on your call.
You deserve to succeed, commit to it.
