As I said in my earlier post
“People who join people not products and companies build longevity
in their friendships and businesses. People join or purchase from people
they know like and trust. Build the relationship, the rest will follow.
Will you build one today?”
Well to follow up on this marketing method I have joined a program to
test my theory. I am not going to talk about that program in this post, this is
not a promotional post. The point I want to share is that I have made many
new friends in this program. Time will tell the real story, I intend to follow
the progress in this Relationship marketing post.
I have been with this new program for about eight months now making
friends, helping in the community when I could and sharing valuable information
with others. I am becoming known to these great people I get to meet from all over
the world. I spend any spare time I have getting to know what they want, and
trying to guide them to what they need.
When you share the knowledge you have gained over the years with others
to help them avoid some of the pitfalls you encountered on your journey, you position yourself to gain a lot of trust.
Be honest. Never try to lead someone where you have never been. If you do
not know the answer to their question, say so. Guide them to where they can
get the correct answer.
During my time with this program I am testing relationship marketing on. I have gained several sign ups in my other programs.
I have also learned a great deal and joined several great tool programs I did not know about. Continuing education is what I call that. We need to remain teachable and flexible all the times. I teach others and I learn from others everyday. Building the relationship first builds longevity in our business and in our personal lives.
Stay tuned for some great results from my test on this fantastic platform
Remember that success is the journey not the destination!
