Yesterday I was minding my own business sitting outside enjoying the weather (even though it's 200 degrees outside…lol)!
I don't know what possessed me to do this because in South Carolina there are a million bugs, and I'm VERY afraid of bugs!
But after about 30 seconds after I sat down I was attacked by a fire ant!
LOL Ok, ok I know that sounds funny because it was an ant, but if you've never been bitten by a fire ant those bites HURT!
Just when I got bitten I asked myself “Why do bugs bite?”
Here's my answer… bugs are a lot like us, they live their lives to eat. Their sole purposeis to keep themselves strong and provide food for either themselves or their families until they can survive on their own.
So why do they bite? Well, mainly they eat to stay strong and fuel their bodies.
But, they also see something appealing, something they just cant resist, something that have just GOT to have…
So I started really thinking about this and how it relates to getting clients.
If you offer a service to your client that is irresistible, appealing, something they just can NOT resist, something they've GOT to have, they ARE going to bite just like that ant bit me!
I know what you're asking, “Marquetta that's easier said than done! How do I do this?!”
Here's an example of what you do…
Let's say you offer Lace Wigs as seen here:
Well, in your salon or place of business you can offer to maintain the unit for your client at no cost for the first 6 months.
You'd let them know that if ANYTHING ever happens to their Lace Wig to come back to you and see you and you'll take care of it quickly and at no cost. Just make sure you put a value on this service and make sure they know how much they're saving with this add-on service.
Basically, you need to make it a no brainer to do business with you.
Lace Wigs is THE hottest trend right now!
But don't stop there, you can do this for ANYTHING you offer.
So what does all this mean at the end of the day? There are a LOT of bugs that are ready to bite :-).
You just have to be ready to take advantage!
