You should provide sufficient time for the investor / business owner / franchisee to go through the details and then you can reach out to them again to understand their decision. A useful technique in such situations is the ‘call-mail-call’ tactic. Call a business owner / investor / franchisee and brief them about your business / requirements. Wait for a few days, and then drop an email enquiring if there are any updates from their end on the same. Fast forward a few days, and then call them again to remind them. This is a good method as it tells the business owner / investor / franchisee that you are genuinely interested in making a deal, and also gives them time to make a decision.

Despite the above, if things do not progress as per your expectations then it would simply mean that the other party is not interested at this point in time. You need to move on and start talking to other investors / business owners / franchisees. A deal can only be achieved if all parties agree and are interested.
