First, offer a free gift, such as a whitepaper or ebook, that will establish your expertise, credibility and rapport. If this is offered with no strings attached, contacts will definitely stand up and notice. Next, reach out within 48 hours and ask how it’s going. Do they understand and intend to implement the 4 ways to immediately cut costs that you taught in the whitepaper? Do they have specific questions they’d like to ask about your ebook or need more information on any of the steps?
