It is Friday again, and finally a little bit of good news I am sure you will all be happy to hear. It was only when reading over my posts in a good mood I saw just how negative I am! I must apologise, I will try and be more upbeat in future.
This week we finally had feedback from Rymans :-). No just calm down for a moment, it is not a reason to pop open champagne but it is a reason so smile. They had a meeting about new products etc and we know for definite that our file was discussed. We are still waiting for the feedback which if trends continue to follow will be in roughly 2 months. Either way some critical feedback from a pannel of experts is not something to turn ones nose up at.
Also we may have a NHS trust in London looking to take on our product as an alternative to what they currently have so that will be around 60,000 folders which is very exciting. And just to add a cherry to the top of a knickerbocker glory a solicitors in London who I met a the office show is also very interested in the concept folder we provided and is looking to make a substantial order! All in all a good Friday, I think you will agree it is defiantly a reason to have a few cheeky drinks tonight!
What is coming to light though is that all these ‘leads’ where discovered at least 2-3 months ago. So does all business take this time to develop? These are larger orders potentially and I understand that these decisions are not made lightly however a few cash flow sales would be perfect right around now. To all the business people out there, how can I chase quick, cash flow sales?
Your advice will be greatly appreciated however large or small! This quote is just how I feel at the moment :-S…
