Last weekend I received a short email that said: "I'm frustrated and I just know I need to do something different."

It was from a doctor whom I had spoken to about our services. We connected on LinkedIn in February, had a call, and I didn't hear from her again. Weeks later, she sent me another message. We spoke again, and she disappeared again.

Now, 2 months later, she reached out via email.

This time I did not offer to get on another call.

We've had this conversation before.

Instead, I recorded a video as I went through her website, pointing out some simple tweaks she could make. Did the same for her social media profile. And I ended with some content ideas for good measure. All in a <5 min video.

She later replied telling me all the reasons why she could not do any of the things I recommend in the video.
