7 Ways to Stop Chasing Decision Makers by Ari Galper ==============================

company has expressed interest in possibly purchasing your
product or service. You've had the pleasant conversations,
you've heard "Yes, we're definitely interested" and "Yes,
I'm the decision maker," and you're excited about making the
sale happen.

You've put your heart and soul into doing what you're best
at - explaining the benefits of your solution but working
hard not to come across "salesy" or pushy. As far as you're

last conversation before they fax the contract through.
