Stumped Trying to Write Follow Up Messages?
If you’re anything like me, you’ve undoubtedly had a bit of writers block a time or two in the past.
Fortunately, creating the messages for your follow up sequence doesn’t have to be an excruciating experience that keeps you from following up. I have good news for you…
You’ve already written your follow up messages and don’t realize it.
Yes, that’s right, you already wrote the messages you need to start following up with your website visitors. Before you call me crazy see if the following applies to you:
- Website has been up 1-2 months or more.
- Your email address is on the website.
- You answer questions from visitors via email.
If so, congratulations! You’re already nearly done writing your follow up messages.
- Open your email program.
- Click on your sent email folder.
The emails that you’ve already written communicating with prospects and customers is the exact same type of content you should put in your follow up sequence. Daily, I see many people get hung up trying to over think their follow up sequence. It has to be perfect or they don’t want to do it at all.
You might want to start with the recommended 7 messages right from the gun, I guarantee that if you’re not following up now a simple 1, 2, or 3 message follow up will make a world of difference to your bottom line. You don’t need 7 messages to make a noticeable impact if you’re not doing anything now.
Re purpose the questions and answers you’ve already written and get them online.
How do you think I came up with what you’re reading now? I certainly won’t win awards with my writing, but I do know how to help small businesses thru effective follow up.
When I get a bit of writers block a simple copy and paste from the sent email folder gets me going again.
