This episode is based on a blog I wrote called “Why prospective clients are ghosting you and how to handle it.”

In this episode I talk about:
  • How common being ghosted is and the recent rise of this due to the cost of living crisis happening in 2023
  • My own experience and reflections on ghosting a serving provider myself (!); why I did it and what I’ve learned from it to bring into my own business
  • 5 reasons why someone ghosting you has absolutely nothing to do with you
  • 8 questions to ask yourself if you’re being ghosted (or want to avoid it happening):
    • Have you helped them to get to know you before they get on the call?
    • Have you pre-qualified people to get on calls with you?
    • Are you making yourself distinctive from other offers out there?
    • Have you given them too many answers on the call?
    • Have you been clear what the offer is and what it costs?
    • Is it clear how to follow up?
    • Do you believe in your offer and your ability to get this person change?
    • Do you actually want this client?

I mentioned a few resources during the episode:
