Let’s Go Back In Time….
Remember when you were in school Get a clear image in your head of the most popular kid in school. The person who everyone wanted to be friends with. What made that person want EVERYONE to be friends with them? What made them so attractive to others? If you carefully look at it you will see that they were GREAT at building.
Building Strong Relationships Really Is A Learnable Skill
It’s exactly like baking a cake. If you know what the ingredients are that someone used to make a cake then you can bake the exact same cake. You just have to know what they are doing and how you can create the same success as them!
I am going to explain to you the steps to build these strong relationships. If you look at this list frequently and put it into action they you WILL see a noticeable difference in the direction of success of your business.
The 4 Steps to Building A Strong Long Lasting Relationship:
STEP 1: Always Give Value
I see a lot of marketers online running and pushing their business opportunities in people’s faces. Didn’t they ever look in the dictionary and see what networking actually means! The definition is ‘The cultivation of productive relationships for businesses.
SPAMMING does not fit into this definition! Even if you go on twitter and Facebook now you will see that they are FILLED with people telling you how to make a million dollars by this evening! It’s OUT OF CONTROL and RIDICULOUS!
This is the most important step we will cover. You want people to come from a place of adding value to someone’s life! People like to connect and follow people that help them to contribute to their life. You don’t have to always sell something to help someone. THAT’S A HUGE LESSON TO LEARN. When an entrepreneur starts giving more than the price they are asking for the goods or products then they have become a TRUE entrepreneur.
Think about who you look up to and admire? Do they come from a place where all they do is TAKE from your relationship? Or do they give and contribute to adding value to your life? Everyone knows this as these are the people that we are attracted to! Sometimes we are not conscious of this when we are mingling online!
STEP 2: Create TRUST between your prospects, leads, and business colleagues
TRUST is the KEY! There is no other way to say it but trust is everything! People do not join companies, they join PEOPLE! They only do business with people they know, like, and trust. For there to be a strong relationship then trust must be there. Without trust there is NOTHING!
Your prospects will want to be sure they can trust you so that you can guide them in the right direction. There are SO many people online scamming they want to be 100 percent sure that you are not one of them.
You can build trust by ALWAYS following though on any agreements or promises that you make. If you tell someone you will email them tomorrow do it! If you are supposed to call a prospect at 6.40PM CALL THEM!
STEP 3: Become a Great Listener:
The most annoying this is when you are speaking and someone starts to talk over you. Or if they are not listening at all because they are busy doing something else. Everyone has a million things to do and they say they are an amazing multi tasker. If you are speaking to someone and you are doing something else at the same time you are NOT FOCUSED!
I am able to tell when I am on the phone with someone and they are not paying attention to me. Maybe they are checking Facebook or reading email. I know you’ve had this happen to you? And I know that you’ve done this to other people as well!
People can tell when you are not present or not listening to what they are saying. Everyone always wants to be heard! When you are speaking to someone be sure to step away from the computer and give them your undivided attention. Focus carefully and listen to the messages behind the words. Powerful listening connects and creates a powerful emotional relationship.
STEP 4: Be Yourself!
Don’t try to be someone who you aren’t. There is HUGE power in being you! When you are authentic and you are honest with other people then you will really connect on a deep level with people. When you are not real then people notice it!
If you are not being yourself then you are creating fake relationships. This isn’t a good foundation to build business on.
If you learn these skills and put them to use then you will see a DRAMATIC INCREASE in your business. People will be attracted to you and want to join your business or buy whatever you are selling. You will begin to wonder where these people have been hiding online all this time.
DO NOT underestimate these steps. Don’t let the simplicity of them fool you. The skill in building relationships is why some people succeed and some people fail!
The majority of people go from one opportunity to the next believing it’s the company’s fault they did not succeed. The truth is that people join you and your business because of the relationship that you have created with them. You need to give them authenticity and trust and they you can jump into any opportunity and succeed!
