Another nice touch is to include your photo with your Bio information. As they say, "it's always nice to put a face with a name". The more you can establish a personal bond with your potential buyer, greater your chances of success.
The second axiom of business is to learn from your mistakes, and correct things that you are doing wrong. During Second World War, when a young group of pilots in RAF were fighting for their lives in air over England, they would often be hit by enemy fire. Their engine would start to misfire causing it to make knocking noises. Thus was coined phrase "every knock is one step closer to home". They had a great attitude.
We can take a lesson from them. If you can determine why your offer is being knocked or rejected by your potential clients, closer you will get to attaining your goals. Rejection is common in business, and even largest companies do studies on every ad campaign they conduct to make them better.
A simple statement on your web page to encourage feedback can go a long way, but don't be discouraged by some of remarks you will receive. No matter how crude some may be, they are being triggered by something, so don't take offense. Now while I normally advocate use of a form for sending information from a website, here I do not. Let them be automatically transferred by use of "mailto:" command to their email account to write message, as you will then know return address is valid.
Yes, they may wish to remain anonymous as well, but use of a form in this instance, which simply allows them to vent, will serve little purpose. You really don't want to be influenced by some bored grade schoolers with nothing better to do.
Follow up to all legitimate replies you receive to find out why they have reservations. Just this process alone may swing them into your camp. Rejection is not always bad, and if you use it properly, it just may go away.
