    OK so you meet with a customer, you go over the site, he asks you to send him a proposal, you send him a proposal and you here nothing back after 1 week.

    Do you call and just make sure he got the letter?

    Ask him what he thinks?

    Or do you just figure he's not interested since he never replied to your letter?

    How do you guys handle calling customers about this stuff?

    Usually, after one week I will call to see if they have any more questions and to make sure they got the proposal. I don't think it's any big deal.

    Personal contact is 7X more effective.

    i call to follow up usually three days later and say "Hi this is trevor from T.L.C, I was calling to follow up on the price quote i left the other day. Did you have any other question, or were you ready for me to come by and sign some paperwork" Never fails.
