A Simple Way to Introduce Yourself That Gets Results
Would you like to win four meetings from five approaches?
That’s exactly what my friend Nick from Seven Hills Chocolate achieved recently. And those four meetings turned into three new clients. Nick is not a salesperson: he makes chocolate and hates selling! But he wanted to supply chocolate to some of the premier hotels in Bath. So, he sent them a letter introducing himself and his business.
It helped that the letter also contained some chocolate! But what really made the letter stand out was that it was handwritten in copperplate lettering. He hand-addressed the envelopes and even sealed them with wax!
Never underestimate the power of a handwritten card or letter
In a world of e-mails and mass-produced mail, sending a hand-written note really stands out. It shows you care about having a dialogue with your prospect. You will be remembered.
Naturally, one card does not turn a prospect into a buyer. But you are much more likely to receive a positive response from a follow-up call, e-mail or social media message.
If you want to maximize your chances of a good response, and you are based in the U.K., why not include some of Nick’s chocolate as well! (And get some for yourself as well: it’s delicious).
