We've all been there before. We decide to hire someone to _________, and we get so excited that we reach out to multiple businesses who provide what we need.
It's easy to find many people that you possibly want to work with, but in the end you can only choose one, right?
Here's my #1 tip for staying top of mind and winning over a potential client who has reached out to you (and probably many others as well):
Set up an automated email reply!
It may sound silly or basic, but it makes a tremendous difference in the way your potential clients view your business.
By setting up an automation for your leads or inquiries, they get an immediate response that let's them know that:
✅ They are being seen, heard, and appreciated just for making contact with you
✅ You value their time and their interest in your services
✅ They can expect great communication with you from the get-go
✅ You are excited to hear more about their needs/project
It doesn't have to be a long email that takes them an hour to read. These are the only things that you MUST include in your reply email:
- First and foremost, thank them for their interest in your services and for reaching out
- Let them know when they can expect to receive a reply (Include your office hours or communication timeframe)
And that's it!
