I'm interested to see how many people opened this particular message - I decided to put the Call to Action to the test by giving you the next step - OPEN TODAY!
There is a difference between giving a
presentation and fire hosing your potential new client with all the
quality products or services you provide and actually asking them to
take the next step.
For the longest time, I couldn't figure out
why I wasn't getting the clients I wanted, especially during a one on
one or at presentation. When I finally aligned myself with a top expert
in the industry, I was soon taught the purpose and absolute necessity
of the dreaded Call to Action. Without providing your potential
customer (or even current customer) with a specific next step and how to
complete that next step they will walk away and won't even think about
doing business with you.
1. Treat your call to action just like it is part of presentation or conversation.

everyone for a referral or testimonial. Perhaps you simply want to

something from the listeners whether it is money for a workshop, an
e-mail address for an opt-in or a referral for a future presentation or
Knowing exactly what you want your next step
to be will make the transition from the main points of your talk to the
close. PREPARE and PRACTICE exactly what you will say during the call
to action so that flows seamlessly from your lips!
