I am in the process of closing one of the larger deals in my career - $Six figure year - 3 year deal and the deal would be big win for our team as well.
During my last meeting (almost 2 weeks ago) with the prospect, they asked for the contract to send over to her procurement team.
I followed up with my client early last week for updates and questions their procurement team may have but did not hear back. The upcoming holiday could be a reason since I know many people could be out.
Tomorrow, I have a review call with my leadership team to discuss the current status of this deal.
The prospect didn't pick up my call this morning so I am planning to send over a follow-up email.
My question is, is there a way to ask the client for a status update as a personal favor due to me having an internal review of the opportunity? It is critical I have some sort of update. If so, how would you phrase the follow-up email?
Thank you for any input/feedback!
