There has been a lot of talk over the last few years about the 1%. The haves vs. the have nots and the growing difference between the middle and upper class in America.
Here are a few facts to consider: -More than 80% of self made millionaires in the US own their own business -Less than 10% of your target market is in the market to buy at any given time -99% of individuals never follow-up on an initial contact with a prospect -It takes on average 8.4 touches to close a sale Put these 4 facts together and there is a pretty clear picture of how you can join the top 1% of earners in America.
- Start, grow and build your own business. (There is help available all around you-it is up to you to take ACTION.)
- Build a robust, targeted list of prospects that want and need what you have to offer. (Sell to enough people that want what you offer, to meet your financial goals with the understanding in mind that less then 10% are ready to buy NOW.)
- Follow-up consistently. (This will immediately differentiate you from 99% of business owners out there.)
- Take your ideal prospects through a minimum of 8-10 high quality touches focused on serving and making a difference for them. (Automate this process to assure every prospect gets these benefits.)
Follow these steps and not only will you achieve your lifestyle and business goals, but you will separate yourself from 99% of business owners AND join the top 1% of earners in the US. Focus on what is in your control and commit yourself to moving forward towards your goals and dreams every day.
If it seems like a mirage in the distance, just remember everyone has to start somewhere. You don’t have to be good to start, but you have to start to be good. (unknown)
