Hi all, Sorry if this is long. I am curious, does anyone run their offline business only using email communication? Is it feasibly possible? The reason I ask, is because I have purchased a course for offering a particular service that probably would never get saturated. The only problem with it is once the prospect gets in touch, you are supposed to call them back. The course even give's sample conversations- that I think could be adapted to emails. The hang up I am having is some severe anxiety issues, ie- panic attacks with the thought of having to talk to business owners. I really do suffer from anxiety- due to owning an offline business that went through a robbery about a year ago and other personal issues. My consulting business is ready to go, and I have complete confidence in what I am able to offer. No fears there. I just can't shake the initial contact fear. In fact I tested the client acquisition method and was thrilled to receive 3 phone calls out of the 10 emails I sent out. (I have an 800 # set up with voice mail). The problem is I can't make myself call them. So in essence- I have a great way to get potential clients but freak out at the thought of talking to them. Also, if I was to adapt the conversations to email, there comes a point where you have to get them to pay you. Again this is a phone conversation, where you walk the business owner through the payment process. At the moment, my website is set up, however it does not have any fees or even a payment processor set up. Due to the amount of phone calls that I would have to make, I am already failing and have not called back the 3 prospects yet. If you were in my shoes would you tweak the phone conversations into emails and then set up a payment page on the website? I want to thank anyone in advance that can help me out here. Before anyone starts calling me a chickenshit and telling me to grow a set of balls- It's physically impossible for me to do that- I am female and this business has to work to get me and my kids out of a bad situation. I will spare the details. Thanks guys!
