    Thanks Julie,
    Another reminder of the importance of the 'call to action' and posture.

    Julie Anne,
    This is great, thanks so much.  What do you do if they 'insist' on not booking a date?  I've tried to get them to book and don't seem to be having much luck and (like you said) I don't want to be chasing them down.

    You are so right Julie Anne! This approach really works! It is so much easier to make the booking hold when you book a tentative date.
