A lot of positive gossip is a good thing…
When it comes to “Word of Mouth” marketing/advertising we want the right words being said…
Example: You are at a meeting doing some Networking… You are now meeting people and maybe receiving business cards and handing out a few of you own. By the next day you are following up with everyone you met and shook hands with.
Reminder: The 24-hour rule in business states that within a day, approximately 80% of individuals whom you have newly met will have some memory of you. Out of this number, only half may be able to recall your profession or field of expertise, assuming you have shared it with them. As time progresses to 48 hours, the percentage decreases to a mere 30% who will still remember you. By the time 72 hours have passed, only those individuals who are potentially interested in collaborating with you or learning more about the services you offer will still have you in their minds.
So, contact your new contacts ASAP… always…
- Send a text – If you had mentioned that you will send a text to the contact, it is acceptable, otherwise, refrain from doing so.
- Send an email – Is perfectly acceptable and a pleasant method of maintaining communication. It serves as an effective means of providing information to the intended recipient.
- Call to say it was nice meeting you. Then take it from that point. Set up a meeting or plan to meet at a next upcoming event.
Word of mouth marketing/advertising only works… when others are saying the right things about you and your skills and or services or goods…
