You have the names of CEOs, business execs and managers of companies. But do they think highly of you? Are you the person they call when they have a specific problem? Are you the leader of your industry who can not only solve that specific problem, but do it in a professional way that clearly explains why you were chosen? Expanding your contact database is the only way for your business to grow. It all starts with gaining the trust and dependability of your clients.
Sadly, not putting in the work (and time) toward building long-lasting, profitable and life-fulfilling business relationships quickly puts you in the back of customers’ minds. This means your quarterly reports and annual income will gradually plummet. How? Because business is run by many minds, talents, and natural skills. Successful people – Gates and Allen or Jobs and Wozniak, for example – worked together to build their global empires. None of them could have made it as far as they have without having solid business relationships.
The foundation of any successful business is marketing properly. The key here is to ensure your business (and you, since your brand’s image is everything) is exactly the type of business your target market is looking for. Creating a LinkedIn Group (or joining one) puts you “face-to-face” with ultra-specif leads each and every week. The important mission for your group is to build a profitable relationship. How do you do that? By making yourself known in your industry/field.
