Just opened an email from a prospect that I emailed with a pitch to do their marketing.
A ”no” it is. I must admit, it took me a few days to open the email just because I get so worked up about hearing back which is an oxymoron because you have to hear back in order to ace a job. The past few weeks have been filled with many nos and I have been trying to be persistent, so it is a bit disappointing.
However, this is indicative of a few things:
*I am contacting the wrong people
*I need to keep contacting more people because rejection does not necessarily mean what I am doing is wrong
*I need to consistently look for new business every day
For the past few weeks, I have been prospecting every day which in itself is brutal and soul-crushing. Hats off to people who are doing this on the phone every day this month, I need to get back on using the phone, but it truly is tough work, which is why I am going to need epic treats such as moving out, getting a Chanel bag and reaching my million challenge goal.
How do you deal with sales rejection?
