Have you had a moment when you're on a sales call and the person seems to be more excited about the purchase than you are? They cling onto your every word. They seem ready to throw their wallet at you.

But then they go dark. You make follow up calls and send follow up emails. But no response.

Here's how to avoid that scenario and follow up effectively.

  21. 21. F R O M H U B S P OT & B R E A K T H R O U G H E M A I L THIS IS THE KEY You should not have to follow up after a meeting. You should use each meeting to establish all the next steps that are going to happen.
  22. 22. F R O M H U B S P OT & B R E A K T H R O U G H E M A I L Symptom vs. Problem Following up is the symptom. The problem is that you haven’t established a buying game plan or established all the next steps. Take, for example, a headache.

  38. 38. F R O M H U B S P OT & B R E A K T H R O U G H E M A I L 2. How to follow up ... when you get a trigger event
  39. 39. F R O M H U B S P OT & B R E A K T H R O U G H E M A I L Too many people try following up like this. Hi Mark, How are you? Last time we chatted, you said I could check-in six months. So – here I am! Wanted to touch base and see if there’s anything I can help you with. Do you have ten minutes to speak tomorrow? I’m available at 10am and 2 pm ET. Let me know what works. Re: Appropriate person?
  40. 40. F R O M H U B S P OT & B R E A K T H R O U G H E M A I L But it’s making some major mistakes. Hi Mark, How are you? Last time we chatted, you said I could check-in six months. So – here I am! Wanted to touch base and see if there’s anything I can help you with. Do you have ten minutes to speak tomorrow? I’m available at 10am and 2 pm ET. Let me know what works. Re: Appropriate person? Aggressive timetable. Weak reason – if someone didn’t care 6 months ago, why would they now? What’s the purpose of the meeting?
  41. 41. F R O M H U B S P OT & B R E A K T H R O U G H E M A I L We can’t just arbitrarily check-in. Instead, use a tool (like Sidekick) to track when your prospect is actually opening and/or clicking your email. That way, if you see a prospect you talked to three weeks ago suddenly clicking on the resources you sent ... you can follow up with additional information relevant to what they're clicking on.
  42. 42. F R O M H U B S P OT & B R E A K T H R O U G H E M A I L Once you see an email open alert, you can now send this. Hi John, Last we chatted, you requested that I get in touch in November. I may be a month early, but I figured it’d be worth checking-in. Have you given any additional thought to my proposal? I’d be happy to do a quick review of it on the phone and answer any pending questions. What does your calendar look like to talk? Re: Appropriate person?
  43. 43. F R O M H U B S P OT & B R E A K T H R O U G H E M A I L Hi John, Last we chatted, you requested that I get in touch in November. I may be a month early, but I figured it’d be worth checking-in. Have you given any additional thought to my proposal? I’d be happy to do a quick review of it on the phone and answer any pending questions. What does your calendar look like to talk? Re: Appropriate person? Although a generic-looking opening, you know that the email has been opened 2-3 times RECENTLY. You’re catching them when you know your business is top- of-mind. The next step isn’t to force more info, but to have a quick catch up.
  44. 44. F R O M H U B S P OT & B R E A K T H R O U G H E M A I L We could also try following up with website activity. With Sidekick for Business, you can track website visit alerts. Getting instant notifications unveiling which pages the prospects are viewing on your website can strengthen your follow up in many ways.
  45. 45. F R O M H U B S P OT & B R E A K T H R O U G H E M A I L These notifications can be used like so - Hunter, three teammates of yours were looking at our product page this week. I’ve included an example of one below. The product page they’re all viewing is focused on helping reps close deals at an accelerated rate. Do you have 10 minutes to discuss what tools your team has been researching? Would they liked to join the call? If so, how does your calendar look? Update?

The product page they’re all viewing is focused on helping reps close deals at an accelerated rate. Do you have 10 minutes to discuss what tools your team has been researching? Would they liked to join the call? If so, how does your calendar look? Update? The email immediately opens with activity or information from the prospect. There’s visual proof that people from their company are interested. The next step is relevant to what they’re researching. Sending the email when their team is curious increases the likelihood they’ll respond.

  50. 50. F R O M H U B S P OT & B R E A K T H R O U G H E M A I L If we don’t set the next call, recover with a “confused” email. [Name], I’m writing to follow up. I’m not sure what our next step is. Let me know what makes sense as a next step, if any? Thanks for your input. [Signature] Next step?
  51. 51. F R O M H U B S P OT & B R E A K T H R O U G H E M A I L [Name], I’m writing to follow up. I’m not sure what our next step is. Let me know what makes sense as a next step, if any? Thanks for your input. [Signature] Next step? The objective of this email is to find the next step. You don’t have to hide the fact that you’re following up. This is a clear request. We’re asking if it makes sense to continue. And if it does, how. This is a key phrase. Since you gently push back, the person is more likely to respond.
  52. 52. F R O M H U B S P OT & B R E A K T H R O U G H E M A I L Sometimes, you may need a more aggressive approach. [Name], I’m writing to follow up on our last conversation. My boss asked me for an update on your account. I told him I didn’t have one. I’m not sure if it makes sense to continue the conversation. What makes sense as a next step, if any? [Signature] Update?
  53. 53. F R O M H U B S P OT & B R E A K T H R O U G H E M A I L [Name], I’m writing to follow up on our last conversation. My boss asked me for an update on your account. I told him I didn’t have one. I’m not sure if it makes sense to continue the conversation. What makes sense as a next step, if any? [Signature] Update? I often substitute "Quick question” or "Next step." This creates urgency. People relate to having a boss and needing to provide answers to their questions. Rather than sell them on what they should do, I've found that gently pushing back to get their input works better.
