Their management is striking while the iron is hot and getting the most out of their new found fame while people are4 still interested. You have to use the same mentality for your business. Keep the momentum going and make the most out of every opportunity. Create a way to get your new supporters into an email database. Set up a weekly newsletter based on your niche to keep your admirers in the loop, keep your products or services in their mind and create long-lasting customer relationships.

2. Design Your Dream Team

A manager and an agent can help you maximize all opportunities that come your way and keep you in the public eye. You may need to consider recruiting more assistants to help you deal with the surge in customer inquiries and sales.

3. Prepare for Overwhelm

Now is the time for self-care. YThe increased workload and the potential requirement to attend relevant events to network can all become overwhelming. Activate your productivity mindset. Take a little time out for yourself every evening to decompress and recharge your energy.

4. Build Lasting Relationships

Take the time to respond politely to everyone requesting your time. Prioritize the relationships that would be most mutually beneficial.
