How much time does it take to return a call or email? How much do those little 5 minute demonstrations of courtesy and attention yield in sales?
It is amazing the sense of trust and respect I harbor for a contact or relationship that gives me this courtesy.
No one, no one answers their phone anymore and no one returns a call unless it immediately benefits them. So, if you do you will build relationships that pay and multiply like wild fire!
Why trust your personal brand and reputation to voicemail and/or complete silence? Answer every call you can personally, on the first ring, and those you can’t call back the same day.
