2. Wooing the Wallflowers;
3. Charming the Lost Sheep Back to the Flock.

Rallying Your Resource Rascals:
Let’s face it, hunting down new clients can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack while blindfolded. Instead, why not lean on other businesses? Find reputable ones that have a loyal customer base and non-competing products or services. Sweet talk them into a mutually beneficial relationship that feels more like a warm hug than a cold business deal. When presenting your offer, remember to sprinkle in these irresistible selling points:

• Your products and services won’t step on their toes;
• Their sales won’t take a dive because of your partnership;
• They’ll see their profits soar;
• They won’t have to lift a finger or spend a penny;
• You’ll take care of all the fancy promotional materials;
• You offer a guarantee that’s stronger than grandma’s apple pie recipe.

Wooing the Wallflowers:
Want to see potential clients come out of the woodwork? Build a referral system that works better than the town gossip. Start by making your current clients feel like they’re the bee’s knees, then show them how your product or service can change their world. If you manage to do this consistently, they’ll start bringing new clients to your door faster than a pizza delivery.

Charming the Lost Sheep Back to the Flock:
Another way to give your business a caffeine kick is to bring back the clients who’ve wandered off. To understand why they’ve strayed, you’ll need to play a bit of a detective. The usual suspects are:

1. Something that has nothing to do with you (like an alien abduction);
2. A glitch in their last purchase (maybe they didn’t appreciate that surprise extra);
3. They no longer find your offerings as appealing as a hot fudge sundae.

The secret to winning them back is as simple as giving them a call. Open up a conversation, let them know you’ve missed them, and find out what went south. Make them feel like they’re your VIP and promise to roll out the red carpet on their return.

That wraps up part one of our guide to juicing up your resources. If you need a hand with any of this, give me a shout! In our next exciting episode, we’ll dive into Building a Sales Team of Champions, Prospecting in the Deep, and Summoning Reinforcements.
