The POWER of the Proposal Follow-up
Show Notes

So often we avoid following up on proposals because we associate the follow-up with sleazy and pushy sales tactics, but once we disassociate the tactic from the intention, we can recognize that following up is a best business practice. That’s why episode 30 of MAKING WEBSITE MAGIC is about the POWER of the proposal follow-up! 

Join the waitlist for the Making Website Magic School of Business. Are you consistently booking dream projects & making the money you desire in your web design business? OR are you undercharging, questioning your skills, spinning your wheels & saying yes to anyone who will pay you? You CAN have a thriving web design & dev business where you consistently work with aligned clients who actually pay you well. 

In this episode of Making Website Magic, Sam & Karyn are sharing the importance of following up on unanswered proposals and actionable steps you can take right now to land the sale through follow-up or use the insight you receive to better your business. 

Here are just a few of the things we discuss during this episode:

  • Reasons why we may try to avoid following up on unanswered proposals. 
  • Disassociating following up from sleazy sales tactics to understand how with the right intentions, this follow-up is a vital step in closing the loop on a sale 
  • Things to include in your follow-up email.
  • Why a “no” is actually a good thing and how you can use this feedback to improve. 
  • Failing to follow up is actually a disservice to your clients. 

Reframe following up from being pushy and coercive to being available and helpful to your clients. Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive empowerment to step boldly into your web design business and to hear even more about the points outlined above.
