Close The Sale … Give Them a Choice

The US Open tennis tournament is being played this week. Of all the sporting events I enjoy watching, being at one of the four major tennis tournaments has to be my favorite.

Give Them a Chance to Buy

I recently registered a new URL.  (It is for those of you who are curious.)  I used to handle the transaction.  When I purchased the URL, a screen came up that asked if I would like more information on tools that would add value to my new URL.  I had the option of saying yes or saying no.
