Fromrepparttar first 75 results, sift outrepparttar 147268 ones that are not relevant and email 50 ofrepparttar 147269 remaining companies with a three-line description of your requirements. Most importantly, include an idea ofrepparttar 147270 volume of work you plan to send out.

(I mention volume, because just like in any other economy, there are service providers of varying size in India. The large ones look for large customers,repparttar 147271 mid-size for mid-size and so on. Rest assured that there will be several providers who want to deal with customersrepparttar 147272 same size as you.)

Whenrepparttar 147273 replies come in, eliminate prospective vendors who:

* Did not reply in 24 hours * Did not communicate well in English * Did not answer torepparttar 147274 point

Now askrepparttar 147275 survivorsrepparttar 147276 following:

* How many full-time employees do they have? * What quality control measures do they have in place? * Do they have any certifications? * Which application platforms do they use? * Could they describerepparttar 147277 largest project they have done?

Some ofrepparttar 147278 addressees won't reply... good, more filtered out. Torepparttar 147279 rest, applyrepparttar 147280 same criteria as you did forrepparttar 147281 first round of replies... there go additional ones outrepparttar 147282 window!

Make firm appointments by emailing allrepparttar 147283 remaining providers and schedule your trip accordingly. This is quite easily achieved, seeing thatrepparttar 147284 major cities in India (Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Bangalore, Hyderabad) have international airports and major hotel chains operating in them.

Right, you’re all set… byrepparttar 147285 way, it always helps to know someone in India well enough to ask for friendly advice before you leave and when you’re there… it shouldn’t be too difficult to network and find such an individual.

Now pack your bags, skedaddle over torepparttar 147286 airport and do that international airline thang…

I thinkrepparttar lesson here is that we all have egos. The better way to approach people is to put your ego under theirs. In other words, be willing to lower your status. Don't flaunt your stuff. Instead, show your weakness and ask for help. This nervy fighter might have done better by offering to teach me his new method, not offering to embarrass me with it. This works in your marketing, too.

Rather than boast that you or your business isrepparttar 147267 greatest, focus on how you or your business can make your customer or clientrepparttar 147268 greatest.

This redirection of focus can trigger a true transformation in your sales.

Take heed.
