There’s a heirchy of communication impact you might not know about. A hand written letter is more effective than a typed one. A phone call is more persuasive than a hand written letter. A face to face meeting is more persuasive than a phone call. And so on.
To raise your sales volume, just raise the communication bandwidth from email to face-to-face consultative sales meeting.
