Don’t they all say that timing is critical with everything? Make sure you choose the right time for this or that…
Well, we believe that there is never (or almost never) a bad time to work on business lead generation. Now, of course, we don’t suggest going around blabbing about your business all the time! What we mean is . . . Always be aware of looking for a possible opportunity that may lead you to a good lead.
As I’ll be flying to Oregon next week on business, my mind goes to a previous flight I had…
Here’s the story:
Several years ago I was flying back from Boston and happened to sit next to a nice young man (early twenties at the time). Normally, I am not one to easily strike up a conversation with a stranger, but something about this young man engaged me. We started talking about our different lines of work.
He worked for a manufacturing company and was on his way to a big trade show. As young as he was, it would not have seemed on the surface that he would be in the position to discuss their company’s marketing goals.
However, I quickly discovered that this young man was sharp and knew how to work and was going to be going places within his company. We talked about possible ways that we could help them through telemarketing lead generation campaigns. Yet today, our memories go back to how we met….our first conversation in the airplane!
So, you never know when you might stumble upon a lead. Just keep your ears open!
