I got rejected!

Last Update: May 08, 2019

Let's talk abit about Rejection.

Rejection is part of our life and they could break you or strenghten you.

I got a message yesterday and it was all about rejection. The business owner did not trust the offer and wanted to see proof first before buying the service.

So what would you say?

Here's what I said:

"I completely understand the over-promises without the backbone to prove it. I’ve done this for 12 years and I can honestly say that commitment is hard to find. That’s why I don’t guarantee any results before getting to know more about the business and the people running it."

That's excatly what I wrote back in the message.

What do you think happened?

Well, I did not get the client.

But this is to show you that this is the excat message I've used with others and it was successful.

So what am I saying about rejection?

Rejection is always going to be part of our sales process. Whether online or offline. Your leads are not rejecting you or even what you're selling.

Sometimes is just not the right leads because timing was not right.

Welcome rejection and learn to have a good answer for all the rejections you get. When you have that message, keep using it. It will work with the right leads, always.

What do you do with rejection?

A life without rejection is not a life. Pick yourself up, dust yourself down, and start again. For every time you are rejected, find out why and continue.

You want to treat Sales in 2 ways
1. Always Try To Book Another Meeting
Time Can Be an Issue sometimes
Valuable Question To Learn To Ask

"Is this a good time to Talk?"

Many times if someone is busy they will often miss what you trying to help them with.

2. If it is a good time then

Now you asked about Rejection. Think of it like a pack of 52 playing cards.

Each pack has
The Aces we all Love
The Jokers - Not always funny
A Few Picture Cards - Good to Time that well.
Then we have a few low cards
A few Medium to average cards

If you think like this. Is just then a numbers game.
Keep dishing out Cards
