Getting the Ball Rolling
The message was a simple request to order some wrappers or refer me to someone they may know who needs something unique to give.
It's all about networking. To get known, networking is one of the most popular yet simple ways of doing so.
Yet so many won't. The reason - I believe - is the feeling of taking advantage or being rejected. No, it's not taking advantage because family and friends want to help. Wouldn't you want to help family or friends? You deserve just as much as they.
Rejection: Nobody likes it but it's part of sales. Look at it this way, the more "no" responses you put behind you the sooner a "yes" response will follow. It's all about the numbers. It's all about the amount of contacts you make. So, get those "no" responses behind you and don't bother trying to resell them.
And remember, you are the only one who can get the ball rolling.
