Our New Leader to Follow on LinkedIn - Armand Farrokh on his 3 Steps to Handle "Call me in 6 Months"
Updated: Mar 1
If you're looking for some wisdom on how to handle "Call me in 6 months" or so, reading Armand's post will definitely help you :) "“Call me in 6 months”
Three steps to handle this one.
1️⃣ Ask what’s happening in 6 months.
2️⃣ Prove you can teach them something now.
3️⃣ Push away if you get a no.
Here’s what it’d sound like.
☎️ Sounds great. Call me in 6 months? I’m swamped.
🎙️ No prob. So I know what to follow up on, what’s happening then?
☎️ We won’t need this until our next audit at the end of the year.
🎙️ Sweet. Hey, no pressure on this one. One quick thought... Most folks hate trying to buy Acme mid-audit.
Opposed to taking a peek next week so you know what’s out there when Q4 comes around?
(If yes… book meeting. But let’s pretend it’s a no…)
☎️ No, no I really can’t.
🎙️ All good, totally get it. Mind if I ask you an honest question?
🎙️ Usually when folks ask me to call em in 6 months, they’re really just too nice to just tell me to go away. I promise, it’s fine if you’re not interested. Is that what’s happening here?
(Tone is key here. Think “guilty dog with ears down”)
