How many people you cultivate a relationship with has a direct bearing on your success in whatever kind of business you are in. You never know when you will be able to help someone and they will be able to help you. A good way to be sure you are in the right flow is to give more value than the cash value of your product or service. People pay attention to that little extra amount of attention you give to them.
When you are out making contacts, be sure to use a follow up system that you like so you will continue to use it. Many people have Customer Management Systems. You might only have a spreadsheet. If it works for you, the use it. Keep good notes on your customers for future conversations.
One of the new networking platforms I have tried recently is called Blitzr.com. It has features that allow you to sort the participants according to how interested you are in speaking with them. Then, when you are done, there is a way to have a follow up conversation right on the platform. I want to invite you to look for the Business Networking Adventure for Joyful Career Design on that Platform.
We will be having our first Blitzr meeting on May 20th at 6:00 p.m. Come join in the fun!
