COVID19 Remote Working Day One Hundred and Sixty-Three of Selling Copiers
It's been four business day since my last blog. I've been busy but took the time off last night to watch/listen to the returns from the election. Can 2020 get any crazier? At this point I don't care who wins and I hope if it's the other guy that he does n't make things worse. I guess from a conservative point of view I'm happy that the Senate is still intact.
I've been able to secure two orders in the last four days, although both of them had a total revenue of $7.5K. For the month I'm somewhere around $18K. As of today there are 13 selling days left for me. There's still much work to be done. (More than 50%!)
I had an excellent content appointment last week. This was the third appointment for this net new account. We were able to present pricing and conduct our review with a virtual meeting. As of today I'm waiting on the proposal so I can deliver to our client. I think this has some legs and the opportunity is for $45K. I'm a little concerned that I've been waiting for a few days for the final proposal but it seems like everything is taking a little more time these days.
I figured I would throw this in for everyone. New Jersey logged more than 2,400 cases of COVID19 today. There's talk that he (Governor) may shut or roll back openings that came in the last 60 days by tomorrow. In fact today's infection numbers are the highest they've been since May 3rd when we logged more than 3,000 cases. Been there done that and I can't worry about what might happen because we make things happen.
Yesterday I was also able to finish up my fourth monthly email campaign to 698 net new suspects. My email has four areas of content. One piece of content comes from an insurance company that I work with, and the other three consist of content from Stratix and content that I've written over the years. At this time I don't have the marketing numbers but I'm hoping that the amount of clicks and opens continue to increase. This campaign is the first time I'm using a landing page. A landing page can help with further engagement from your clients and it's something I need to learn more about. I'm sure in the coming months you'll be reading more on this subject.
I was also able to send a constant contact email to 81 existing clients asking them for their business. In addition I also asked for referrals. I thought it was best to do the email route first just to see the numbers from opens and clicks. Next week it may just be all phone calls to those 81 clients.
While I was writing this blog Larry Levine called me, hey who can refuse a call from Larry? Anyway we had an awesome conversation to catch up on our personal stuff and share some experiences on how COVID19 has effected everything we know. We all need to adapt and continue to move forward.
I'm out to exercise my 2nd Amendment Rights tomorrow because I need to get fingerprinted in order to get my gun permit. Thus I'm taking a personal day tomorrow. But you know me and I'll find a way to do something to do that will push some of these 61 opportunities closer to closing.
More the come, the struggle is real and we shall overcome.
