Your follow up can be as simple as contacting them, in two or three days, with a new offer.
Stay in contact with your Customers, they are prospects also. Offer them "back-end" products or services. It's easier to make a sale to a previous customer than to new prespects who has never bought from you. Back-end products are products or services which are related to your initial offer.

You can copy competitors advertising ideas, but not their exact methods and words. This can be effective for quick results. However, as more and more competitors copy the same idea the results will decline. Improve on your competitors advertising ideas. Create something better - something uniquely you.
