Regardless of the method you used to generate your lead, once that lead is captured it is priceless to you. Your lead is added to your list because without a list you are not in business.
How are you capturing and following up with people that have expressed interest in your product or service? If you are currently using your companies site to capture leads; immediately consider a change in the way you are doing business. Your goal should be to develop your own list outside of your current company so that you have access to your prospects even if you are no longer affiliated with your current business.
Now that your lead is captured what’s next? You must first make sure you deliver anything you have promised. You also need to have a follow up system, because as you know most people won’t make a decision at first glance. Hopefully you have collected the name and at least the email of your person that has expressed interest in your product or service.
Auto responders are a great way to follow up with your lead . An auto responder (as the name implies) automates your response to your lead usually with pre -written emails delivered at regular intervals. This is an essential tool since most of your time is spent on other business building activities.
Think about how many times you have planned to follow up with someone, but for whatever reason didn’t. You lost the time, money, energy, and effort it took you to acquire that person, and you also potentially lost a long lasting customer or business partner.
There are several companies that offer auto responder services. One thing to consider are the tools available within the service. Also consider the cost. Does the cost increase with the size of the list? You should also find out about the affiliate program offered. Affiliate programs are awesome since they allow you to build additional income online as you are growing and building your business.

To Your Success!
Procrastination is one of the deadliest sins of entrepreneurship. If you are not careful and continue to commit it, it has the potential to choke the life out of your business.
When I was first introduced to my primary business opportunity I did not immediately join. I knew that I had to; I knew that I would, but I immediately began to make excuses of why I shouldn’t join at that moment. I made excuses to procrastinate. In the meantime the business was growing rapidly within my network of business colleagues and friends.
I hate to think of the income I missed for spending a little time procrastinating.
Procrastination has the potential to choke out your dreams if you continue with it. Time is swift, seize the moment(s) before they are gone. Never put off till tomorrow what you must do today!

Just something to think about,
Isn’t it strange to assume ongoing success without being willing to make any effort for ongoing personal development and basic industry training?
Why would you not give at least as much to your own business venture as you have done learning, training, and promoting the business of your employer? This is your business right?
Think about when you first began working on a job. Your employer provided you with training so you could properly do what you were hired to do. What if you were hired and the only instructions you had for doing your job was the information you were given in your interview. Imagine how limited your success would be!
Top industry leaders recognize the value of ongoing personal development, and that’s exactly why they are TOP industry Leaders.
How much time do you spend per week on personal development? What tools and resources are available to you for personal development?
