Holding a weekly teleseminar allows you to meet the people on your list. There is not enough room in an email to tell people more about who you are, and you will never meet everyone at live events. Being able to speak with them on a call is the next best thing to meeting them in person.
This started for me back in 2006. I would hold teleseminars with very few people in attendance. This gave me the opportunity to find out more about them and to find out how to best serve their needs. Over time, as my list grew and attendance increased, many of those original people would still attend my teleseminars. I was learning how to reach out to people in the virtual world.
I encourage you to hold regular teleseminars and to connect with your listeners. Find out where they live and what they do, both online and off. Acknowledge them for attending your calls. Have fun with this process and you will be able to connect with your prospects in a very different way than you might have expected.
