1. Always be there
There will come to a point that your will handle more than 3 clients at a time, but if you cannot give your focus to each person, you will lose a lot of money. Unlike before, collecting information via phone using caller ID is very advantageous.
Of course, there will be times when you are truly unable to get to your phone on time; if possible, talk to your current customers. Most of them just have a few questions that you will need. Take at least five minutes to answer their calls, and you’ll become a hero. You would be surprised to discover how valuable availability is to the average small business — consider the alternative.
You also need to be flexible as to where they usually prefer to communicate whether it be e-mail, text, WhatsApp, etc.
2. Set Goals

The key to success in automated marketing is trifold: you must hit all the aspects of your target market all at once.
