Insights from the field
In part one, we talked about the coffee talk meeting as a co-created experience. The key is to build momentum for next – the all-important second meeting in business. Here are 10 tips to ensure you get your share of the pie in your next coffee talk meeting.
“Hi Ellen, it was great seeing you this past Tuesday and thanks for being so generous with your time. We covered a lot of ground together but wanted to follow up on some of the things we both thought were important:
• This is the video of my Chamber talk on messaging
• A Whitepaper on what the best are doing around prospecting in wealth management
• A link to my blog post on social media that I told you about. Nice tie to your team’s challenges.
Thanks also for your help in connecting me to Steve over at TKD Securities. I know we said that we’d connect at the end of the month - here are some additional dates and times for us to reconnect on the prospecting topic. Please feel free to pick one that works or suggest another.
• June 6 – after 12p
• June 7 – all day
• June 13 – before 3pm
Thanks again, Ellen. I look forward to seeing you soon."
If no response in two weeks, send a calendar invite with the same message above around timing flexibility. This assumes that you made firm and purposeful connections in the coffee talk meeting and the next meeting was implied and agreed upon.
