5 Steps to Success

#1. Stay one step ahead of your competitors.

That means you really do have to know your ideal customers better than your competitors.

  • Ask your customers, and prospects, how they understand what you do and who you help?

#2 As we grow up we learn social etiquette – use it when you network…

You can easily make a great first impression with everyone you meet.

  • Be interested in people first, business second.
  • And, effectively work a room – bringing out your own charisma.

#3 The art is in making your marketing be an expression of who you are.

  • If you are going to build your credibility, visibility, social capital, and personal brand you’ve got to behave and think like a business person, and a friend.

#4 Networking Commercial 

Finding the words that express who you love to work with, what they may be struggling with, and your great solutions will help you and those around you want to visit more with you.

  • You come across confident and make it easier to enjoy networking.
  • Bring about your own charisma. Help others feel special, listen more than you talk.

#5 There is a science to knowing which specific words, strategies and techniques are going to work.

  • If you get to know people first, opportunities will follow.
  • Then you can turn your network into your own online community – there are no boundaries between online and face-to-face networking.

Tip: 80% of success from networking comes from…follow up. It also sets you apart. 90% of people don’t follow up after networking.

Is networking something you can do? Of course, it is – it’s a learned skill and art form…

By simply talking to one another. So much info. Can’t wait to get started.  Thank you ladies (Inner Circle).” Nina PhotographybyHart

    I work for a busy real estate agent several days a week and also have my own business providing strategic guidance for divorce and co-parenting challenges.
    Since clients are the life-blood of both the real estate and consulting businesses, your point about following up is so essential to remember since it takes time and energy from us to build up trust before our clients decide to move forward.

      Thank you, Nate – Learning from our customers is our goal – and also getting to know them in person, on the phone, gives us a more rounded of who they are – it is becoming more aware of their needs, wants and how they talk about the results they want.
      So glad you stopped by, Nate 🙂
