It’s much easier to adjust your internal processes and optimize them the more times you do it. Smaller projects afford this opportunity. Today's episode, I'm going to share 3 reasons why I feel that Fiverr is a good place to start.
80% of sales require 5 follow-ups after the first meeting or conversation. 44% of sales reps give up after 1 follow-up and the average give up after 2. 50% of leads that enter a sales pipeline are not ready to buy in the near term. On average, decision makers consume 5 pieces of content before being ready to speak to a sales rep. Do you have a follow-up? After this episode you will.
The end of the year always has us looking at revenue numbers doesn’t it. It’s also a great time of year to reevaluate our prices. January 1 is a great time to also create deadlines and launching pads for yourself and clients as well.
Be profitable in the process, but stay in your lane if that’s what you want and don’t let pressure or comparisons force you to a place that you don’t want to be. Everyone’s businesses are different and unique. Just like them as a person. Some freelancers I’ve spoken with grow agencies, others stay solo. Some have aspirations of hiring a large team or scaling a product. It’s very different and that’s why when someone asks me “why don’t you grow your business?” I often respond with “why?”
When I said “I’m a web developer” I would get half of the people asking some followup about their own site or own computer problems. Or some crazy idea of a new website they had. Now as someone who increases repeat buyers for the online business, or increases appointments to the practice, or creates a batter client onboarding for SaaS products, when that person hears any of these, then they will refer to you and give you a more qualified lead.

There’s so much to learn and as business owners, we love to absorb as much as humanly possible. But that’s where the pitfall happens. We consume and consume and consume. If we applied half of the actionable information that we consume, we would have zero time in the next 10 years for anything else. (And yes, that figure is statistically backed by science ;) ).
