Let me give you a statement from "The Best of Success" compiled by Wynn Davis, "Time can't be managed. But what can be managed are our activities and how we "spend" time.” And all the experts agree: managing our activities begins with planning. So by knowing what's important for us - planning our work and working our plan, we become wise managers. Notice how everything revolves around having a plan? So, how can you monitor your time? Let's look…
At The Ohlson Group, all of the marketing consultants have a daily sheet (online) that breaks each hour into four 15 minute sections per hour. This is formulated from billable hours sheets used by law firms. Also, in "The Art of the Deal" by President Donald Trump, he always had phone appointments and personal visits scheduled for 15 minutes. He always informed the person on the other line that he had 15 minutes. Now, sure... if things are going great you continue. But, your plan should dictate what you do each day, week and month.
You need to spend a part of each day prospecting. Yes... each day. Remember, no good prospects? Then you are unemployed that day. You need to spend time on marketing. Website, Linked In, Facebook, or planning quality content drips on your clients and best prospects. So, let's cut to the chase. Yes, we have all of these tools for you to use at your disposal. That is why we have to spend some quality time together helping you get your business even more successful than it is today. Okay, what's next? Time to close this up.
I hope that you have found this commentary to be of value to you. If so, and if you want to learn more, call us at 1-877-844-0900 and line up an appointment with one of our marketing consultants. If you don’t mind, I would like to close with a quote by Victor Hugo that I find helpful, "He who every morning plans the transactions of the day and follows out that plan, carries a thread that will guide him through the labrynth of the most busy day.”
Thanks for your time and until next time... good selling!
