Just because your customer expressed an interest
In what you have to offer
Doesn’t mean the customer is bound to actually using that service.
It simply means they want to know that they must give up in exchange
To receive what you have to offer.
If you must resort to emotional blackmail
To seal the deal with that customer
You should know that you have not won that customer over
But rather you’ve hustled them into doing business with you.
Best believe that they will not give you great referrals.
And unless your product is really far ahead of your competitors’
You will have to hustle them into doing business with you again.
Its one thing to make a compelling pitch about
All the great things you have to offer,
And quite another to tell your customer that you have made a lot of sacrifices
In order to accommodate them
As if sharing this information now that means they ‘owe’ you their business.
That’s not a strategy. That’s bullying.
Asking for the price
Is not the same as making an order.
