In the Beginning

Today my business partner and I were talking about our first few sales. The first sale he made he visited 3 times and held several phone calls. Finally the sale was made and we were $1,200 richer, after a lot of work. What does buzz do for you? It takes the work out of making money. Now most of our sales come from the website, referrals and happy customers buying more. It is wonderful to be able to put more of your effort into your clients success and less into finding new work. It is far easier to create buzz than it is to cold call people. It just takes a plan, discipline and an understanding that it does not happen overnight very often.
