Jeffrey Gitomer, The 33 cent Sales Call, now 42

How often are you in front of your customers or prospects?

Answer: Not as often as you should be.

It takes 7 to 10 impressions to get a sale and begin to build a relationship. You can get there quicker if you use the mail. Not e-mail - regular old put-a-stamp-on-it mail mail. If you can't be there in person, send a letter. View Article
