Default Ethical BRIBES Gets My Clients & Prospects to CALL & BUY

Dear TW,

Thanks for sharing the frustration almost all of us Entrepreneurs in business feel.

I avoid the whole mess.

(All together now - say, "THANK YOU, Gary Halbert.")

STEP I - I ask my customers and prospects which ones of a List of BRIBES they would like best.

And "YES" - I bribe them to answer my Bribe Questionnaire!

STEP II - Then when I need A YES or NO or Their OPINION on something - I BRIBE them with Stuff they REALLY DO WANT.

STEP III - I do this for clients too.

A food store owner complained that people he hadn't SEEN in 5 YEARS came in to buy a Candy bar. - JUST so they could turn in the postcard and get a chance at the Raffle item.

In S. Carolina the vote was for a COLOR TV or a 4 Speaker Truck STEREO System

But he Shut up when his s ales that month MUSHROOMED by 42%!

P.S. - Email me - maybe one or more of the Dozens of BRIBES I have found over the years - will work for you. They don't cost much. Cuz they are mostly INFORMATION BRIBES.
