YO! The magic is in the follow up.
As a creative it’s hard to find the balance between working on our craft and doing business.
We’re always doing a million things in a day’s work.
But we HAVE to do both.
It’s so easy to have someone reach out about your service or product and forget to follow up with them.
This is where money gets lost.
Time and time again you’ll get messages from people who inquire about your prices, maybe the recent painting you posted, or what it’d be like to work with you.
You message them back with the info. And then they’re GHOST 👻
We then get frustrated and assume we scared them away, or assume maybe they’re just not interested, or maybe you just forget it and move on to the next thing in your todo list.
I used to do this ALL THE TIME. And I know I lost lots of money because of it.
CREATIVES PLEASE STOP DOING THIS 🖐
Never assume and never forget.
Follow up, follow up, and follow up again.
You’re not being annoying, you’re just doing business. YA GOTTA EAT!
Half the time I find that they themselves just forgot to get back to me and they’re still very interested.
Keep trying to secure the bag! 🙌🏼👊🏼💰
