How to Followup Without Being Annoying
Prospecting is about TIMING and finding the right person at the right time so that’s why the Fortune is in the Followup!
You keep following up and you’ll eventually get your prospect to join or buy when the timing is right.
Here’s how to do it without being annoying
1 ) Frequency and Schedule of the Followup
You become annoying if you followup TOO FREQUENTLY at a short time frame
Don’t followup 10 times in 5 days!
nor do you send 5 text messages within 24 hours!
A good Follow Up schedule is
- Followup once after 24 hours
- Followup 2 more times in next week
If they still don’t respond, then you followup with them every 6 months
2 ) Take Away
If they don’t respond after the 3rd time, you can give a simple takeaway such as
“You must be really busy because I haven’t heard back from you. No worries. You’re not the person we’re looking for now. I wish you best of luck and will keep you updated”
3 ) How to Followup with Wins and Updates
Share a win or update!
The wins and updates do NOT need to necessarily come from you.
It can come from your team
The more specific and relatable the Update is, the better
- Ask them if they know anyone that wants to earn an extra $200 – $500 a month
Here’s an example of this works
“Things have been really fun and I’m growing a lot in my business. In fact, our team had over 10 promotions last month including this stay at home mom that reminded me of you.
Do you know anyone that would be interested to earn an extra $200 to $500 a month?”
4 ) Indirect Followups Through Social Media
Another effective way to followup is to consistently post wins and updates about your business on social media
When people see your consistency, they will notice and may become interested
Remember that prospecting is about timing.
You never know who is watching your posts so make sure you post consistently.
If you lack ideas on what to post, here’s how to get a Content Calendar that will get your 5 interested prospects
5 ) Following Up with those Said “No”
One of the most important people you have to followup with are people you’ve presented in the past.
They may have said “No” to you before, but they may be open now because the timing is right.
Here’s a proven script you can use
I know you weren’t interested in my business. But it’s been awesome and we’ve been able to help many people
Do you know anyone that wants to earn an extra $200 – $500 a month?
Watch the video below for more examples on how to use it
Remember that if someone doesn’t reply back doesn’t mean they’re not interested.
The timing just isn’t right and that’s why following up is so important.

It’s No Accident
“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do”
If you want to work hard
and stay more consistent
Do there 2 things
1 ) Don’t make it just about your goals
Make it about others
2 ) Focus on your journey
It can be very discouraging if you just focus on results
→ Focus on your journey and who’re becoming
if you do this,
eventually your consistent actions will lead to small tiny improvements that will compound over time
You’ll get good and eventually get the results you want.
