This week's Answer:
Back to Getting Back to You
The problem is that you've inadvertently let him know that
not getting back to you in a timely manner or never
getting back to you is somehow okay with you because
you've developed that pattern with him (and he's probably
unaware of it as much as you have been).
your mission (if you wish you except it, Mr. Phelps) is to
change the pattern. And here's a simple way to do
him an email, telling him that one of your screenplays is
seriously being looked at by a top producer with the
investment money is already in place and all he needs is
another producer to come in on the deal to take on some
simple producer tasks that he doesn't have the time to do.
You mention in the email that distribution has already
been setup and the second producer will make a minimum of
$100,000. You let him know that you thought he would be
interested in being this second producer.
notice how quickly you get a reply from him. Voila!
course, he's going to say yes, he's in as the second
producer. Then don't reply to him. He'll send another
email very soon, reminding you of his interest in the
project. You still don't reply to him. After his third
email, you reply with seven words.
Didn't hear from you in time."
then on, he'll be responding to you quickly.
just in case he took your email in the wrong way...
wouldn't give him your home address.
