    30: Bite Sized Sales: When A Prospect Stops Talking To You

    You've had some great meetings, maybe even delivered a killer proposal. Things are going great with your prospect and you just KNOW that they are a perfect fit for your offering.
    Then things go silent. Your emails go unanswered. Your calls go unreturned. You've been ghosted and you cant understand why.
    In this episode of Bite Sized Sales I give you a simple strategy to try to get back in front of your prospect and some potential reasons for the silence. 
    I encourage you to listen to Episode #4: How To Prevent Buyer Pricing Concerns as it will help you understand how to avoid being "ghosted" going forward.
