Fabulous Follow Up: Leverage Connections into Clients

Cathy JenningsInterview with Cathy Jennings 

You attend lots of mixers, meetings, coffees and conferences and collect tons of business cards.  You connect with hundreds, even thousands of people online via social media  But what do you have to show for it?  You’re “busy”, but not “busy” in a good way – with clients and customers and growing your business. Instead, you’re racing around with too much to do and never getting anywhere.

This program will show you that what you do BEFORE you network will ensure your success AFTER you make a connection.

You’ll gain the tools to . . .

  • Discover what ONE thing is missing in most networking and marketing approaches — without this, you will forever be spinning your wheels.
  • Develop an online connection plan to help you make, maintain and leverage your social media connections.
  • Differentiate yourself by doing the little things that over 80% of all networkers DON’T DO – you’ll be shocked to learn how easy and obvious they are!
  • Implement simple strategies to stay top of mind and close more business — these are not overly complex, expensive “gimmicks”, but REAL relationship-builders and business attractors.
  • Create a customized plan for follow up that honors YOUR personality and business goals – not just another cookie-cutter solution that doesn’t work for YOU.
