I happened to listen to a great call last night that was filled with great information! I have pages of notes that covered 18 awesome business marketing points. So, I thought I'd spend some time sharing the information with you over the next week or more.
Tip#1: No matter your business, the first thing you need to do is to build relationships. This means taking the time to talk to people. In doing so, you will find out what their interests are, what their goals and aspirations are, and what they want out of life. You probably will even find out what soccer games their daughter will be playing in, where they will be going for vacation, etc. You will find that people will just open up to you.
Just be yourself with no agenda at all. If you consistently do this, people will view you as someone who truly cares about them and they will be drawn to you. I know I am drawn to folks like this. So, take the time to work on building relationships.
