Quick Tip: Follow Up With a Phone Call

Posted by Drew Stoga on September 2, 2011

phoneThe perfect lead. It may be elusive but every once in a while, when you least expect it, it shows up in your inbox.

You drool at the prospect of landing this gig because you are perfect for it. You quickly send off a polite and enthusiastic bid and then it's time to wait, right?

Wrong! If you ask us (and you did) you aren't truly done bidding until you follow up with a phone call (or email). This is the best way to stick out from the crowd. Many of our clients request bids from multiple performers. Even if you simply leave a polite voice mail explaining why you are perfect for the gig, you can rest easy knowing that you have done everything you can to get the gig.

If this topic sounds familiar it's because this is not the first time we have suggested you follow-up. Check out this classic post and learn why it pays to pick up the phone.
