Deliver on your promises
This one simple act can set you far above your competition

During every prospect or client sales opportunity, we make promises. It may be about a call back, future appointment, product delivery quality or additional information. No matter the content, though, a promise is a promise.
The foundation of a solid, long-lasting relationship is integrity, no matter how small it may seem. I like doing business with those who deliver on their promises. We all do. The same is true when working in sales.
A client may not remember that you called them back, but will remember when you didn’t. No matter how seemingly harmless the keeping-your-promise incident appears to the salesperson, it’s a big deal to the client.
