The Phone Is Still the Very Best Tool for Booking Appointments.

first_imgFirst, there is no other medium that allows you to convert your confidence that you can create value for your dream client should they agree to meet with you. Your confidence doesn’t come across the same way in an email. Email asks tend to be sterile, devoid of emotion, or too cute for their own good.Second, and equally important, is the fact that the communication is asynchronous. You can respond to your dream client’s questions and concerns, concerns they are likely to express as a method of getting you off their phone. Because you are on the phone, you have a shot at resolving that concern (provided you have the confidence). An email can be deleted or ignored. Any attempt to resolve a concern can feel like you are arguing.Third, the key to obtaining commitments is trading enough value in exchange for the time you are requesting. Offers that are spoken with confidence that they deliver value seem to be more effective than offers made over email. If the value proposition for the meeting isn’t exactly right, you have a chance to remedy that with an improvement to your pitch. When what you are selling is a meeting, there must be something that makes it worthwhile for your prospective client.Finally, your voice is unique to you. It can identify you, transforming you from a first and last name into a human being. Not only can the client hear your voice, they can get a sense of you as a person, what we might call your real voice, or personality if you are willing and able to share that over the phone. All these things are made more difficult over email.Email is about efficiency. But results in prospecting don’t easily lend themselves to improved efficiency. Results tend to follow effectiveness. If one medium is more effective, using it more often is a better choice than looking for shortcuts.last_img read more

3,498 Bru families identified as bonafide residents of Mizoram, says State Home secretary

first_imgMizoram government officials have identified 3,498 families staying in the six Bru relief camps in Tripura as bonafide residents of the State, Home Secretary Lalbiakzam said on Tuesday. All the identified families have expressed willingness to the officials to return to Mizoram during the proposed government-sponsored repatriation process, Lalbiakzama told PTI. “The second phase of identification process commenced on July 3 and is scheduled to be completed by July 20,” he said, adding that the period might be extended if the officials could not complete the process on time. Though the Ministry of Home Affairs has expressed its desire to begin the physical repatriation from September and to complete it within a month, but the unprecedented belated onset of monsoon might compel the government to defer the beginning of the repatriation process, the Mizoram Home Secretary said. He said that all the arrangements including the logistics of the repatriation like transportation, construction of transit camps along the Tripura border as also the quantum of free ration and cash dole would be determined by the number of identified people as well as those who were noted as willing to return to Mizoram. Those who return to the State would be provided a free ration and ₹5,000 per month per family for a period of two years, as per the agreement reached between the Centre, State governments of Mizoram and Tripura and Mizoram Bru Displaced People’s Forum (MBDPF) on July 3, 2018.last_img read more

SPORT-ISL-NEUFC 2 LAST

first_img“I am sure tomorrow we will have a fantastic atmosphere. “I am sure tomorrow we will have a fantastic atmosphere. Its hard for one of the teams who will be out but this is the best side of football. You can say we played enough quality football to be already qualified. (But) Football is not only performance, its about results. Tomorrow we will be here for one thing: result, and as you know, performance is forgotten and result remains forever. I hope we can have a great game,” said NorthEast head coach Nelo Vingada. Vingada is aware that Kerala will have an added advantage because they will be backed by a crowd of approximately 55,000 for the “final of a World Cup for both teams”. But the Portuguese coach fancies his teams chances. “Kerala has an advantage with 50,000 to 55,000 fans supporting them but that will not be enough. Who can win the game are the players inside the field. I know it will be hard for us because we must win and we are here to win,” said Vingada. Interestingly, the two teams were the first to play each other this season as ISL 2016 kicked off in Guwahati on October 1 with NorthEast United scoring a solitary goal victory at home.

Commentary Ohio State football is simply too big to fail

I am 23 years old and have lived in Columbus, Ohio, for almost my entire life. Between having 10 players being ruled ineligible by the NCAA due to multiple scandals, the firing of a Hall-of-Fame-caliber coach, a 6-6 record and a loss to Michigan, I can honestly say that this is the worst calendar year of Ohio State football that I can remember. And yet it still began with a win in a BCS bowl game and it will end with OSU hiring a 47-year-old coach with two national titles under his belt in Urban Meyer. So what can we determine from knowing that the worst calendar year in almost a quarter century of OSU football included both a win in a major bowl game and the hiring of arguably one of the greatest college football coaches alive? It’s that OSU is simply too big to fail. And that’s something that a lot of schools can’t say. Michigan, who endured three underwhelming and two bowl-game-less years under Rich Rodriguez, certainly can’t say that, and as we’ll learn in the coming years, neither can Penn State. The reasons behind OSU’s inevitable success are tied to two factors: the state’s rich football history and the football program’s history of winning. Even if Meyer had chosen to stay retired and away from OSU, this point would’ve been proven by whoever had taken over Columbus. From Bob Stoops at Oklahoma to Nick Saban at Alabama to Pete Carroll in the NFL, there is no plethora of coaches who happen to have both stellar resumes and ties to the Buckeye state. Prior to this season, OSU had won a share of each of the past six Big Ten titles, regardless of what the NCAA record books tell you. The school has won 35 Big Ten conference titles and seven national titles, thanks to a lineage of Hall-of-Fame-caliber coaches in Paul Brown, Woody Hayes, Earle Bruce, John Cooper and Jim Tressel. And now Meyer, OSU’s first choice to join the fraternity of Buckeye coaches, has accepted the school’s offer. Unlike Michigan, who was passed on by Les Miles — a Michigan alum — twice in the past four years, OSU got its man and never even had to consider a plan B. Meyer’s idol, Woody Hayes once said, “We hate to lose, but when we do, rest assured we’ll be back, and someone will pay the price.” With the way the Buckeyes bounced back from the season they’ve had since winning the Sugar Bowl in January, Hayes would be proud. Because the Buckeyes are back, and it’s time for lesser programs to start paying. read more
