Yes, we all get busy, but how hard is it to call someone back within 24 hours to get business?
Recently I called one golf course to talk to their course pro about golf lessons (I’m worse than this implies). So while I waited for him to call me back, I called another course and found out their pro was away until the next day.
After 24 hours I was on the phone with the pro who was away and booking an appointment. The other pro still hasn’t called me–a week later. Even if he was the best teacher in the world I wouldn’t take lessons from him because he’s obviously is too important to call me back.
It doesn’t matter now because someone else got my business and I can only guess others have followed suit.
