The words you choose can have a huge impact on your sales, on future bookings, and on the number of prospects who are willing to take a closer look at your business. Huge difference!
How do you ask for a booking?
After the meeting I was talking to a woman who would really love to build a bigger business – but she shared that she is struggling to get bookings.
So I asked, “Let’s say that you and I are sitting at your closing table, you’ve just taken my order, and now it’s time to ask me to book a party. What would you say to me?”
Now I realize that asking someone to do this exercise can be a bit uncomfortable. But you can also learn so much!
Here’s what she said:
“Susie, I’d sure appreciate it if you’d book a party for me.”
(Keep in mind this woman is extremely talented, has a great personality, and could literally build her business to whatever level she chooses with some “tweaking.”)
So let’s have some fun with this…
I would love to hear your comments about what is wrong with this statement, AND, how you’d say it differently.
I’ll post my response in a few days…
Thanks for commenting and sharing!
