How I Lost My Best Deal And A Client for Using Gmail Account

How I Lost My Best Deal And A Client for Using Gmail Account

The best class I have enjoyed this year is “Learning from mistakes class”. I don’t know how I can give it the best name that will suit your understanding; should I call it the “O” level of entrepreneurship? Or should I call it “A” level of entrepreneurship? For those who are understanding our traditional form of education can help me interpret, but for now, let’s get back to our topic.

I can now stand out and defend myself that I have the best lesson to share that can help other beginners in this corporate world. I was at first frightened by this fact of failure, but I realized it was part of my growth.

A lesson that is driven by a mistake and failure will always stick into our minds for years. You will feel the pinch of it, and you will never accept to go through the same thing next time.

Like children, if you can recall; we were cautioned not to joke with fire or razorblade but remember the moment we were left alone, we could try so hard to reach on what we were warned. Then we got burnt, and from there we had to learn from the pain of which was an outcome of mistake. And from that, we could not allow ourselves even to come closer to a matchbox not even fire itself.

What about business? We sometimes read a lot of blogs and books about things we shouldn’t do for the sake of success of our investment or business. And then we go ahead and make the same mistakes even after reading everything about their impacts. I know you are curious to see the context of this story, and that is what I want to share with you.

As bloggers or content creators, our source of funding always comes from sponsorships we get from corporates. They fund our activities, and in return, we market their businesses on our platforms. This is how we survive in this industry, and it is a symbiotic relationship where we both depend on each other.

So just like other bloggers, I had to pitch for some organization to sponsor my blogging journey. I designed some presentations about what I do and how it will add value to that organization. After that hard work, I forwarded everything to that intended receiver using my Gmail account.

Since patience is the key in the business industry, I had to hold on as I wait for their feedback. Days and weeks passed without even a single response from that organization.

Being that I’m a digital marketer, I spend a lot of my energy in getting feedbacks from clients because that’s how I measure my success and progress. So I looked for the contact of that manager to ask if they had received any mail from me.

I made him a call and explained everything, and he responded that he always treat such emails as scams.

He went ahead and explained to me that the email was a professional and so he little expected it to be sent by the Gmail account. And that is why he ignored and considered it as spam. This how the deal was closed even though they needed someone to do that job. So I lost it.

I know you are sometimes wondering about the true definition of professional mail. A professional email is an email that uses your name or department name and the domain name of your business.

For instance, my professional mail is movine@otitekmedia.co.ke. Or I can use sales@otitekmedia.co.ke or anything related to the business. This is what you should use when doing your business communications. I took it for granted sometimes back, but through this pinch of losing a client, I have learned and promised myself that I would never fall into the same trap again.
