This is How you Start new Profitable Business Relationships from Zero! Our Story.
You do know that working on and building stronger Profitable Business Relationships can help your business so much more than you might realize?
It is Monday morning and we hope you are GDPR compliant…we dont want all those relationships going to waste because of this. So are you complaint?
Cool, then back to biz….
Well in this episode we are going to share with you our experience thus far and hope this will help your entrepreneurial career or life journey!
It’s possible that the reason we did and most new entrepreneurs so often neglect this is because there is no immediate pay off…Why do we say that?
The answer is Simple; Impatience and short sightedness are two of the most powerful business killers.
When we started out, like you, we didn’t have any business experience and we tried to do everything on our own. We were driving blind. Can you imagine that? Dangerous and fool hardy…
Yet many new entrepreneurs and coaches do this all over the world, for months even years on end DIYing it…
You aren’t going to have any way to get feedback except for seeing if your efforts get you any results. So, you need to really think about building your business connections and relationships more as a powerful investment, as opposed to a Time spend!
Let’s go deeper shall we….
Making Your Business Relationships More Profitable
We were told, and are sure you too, far too often, that it is the smaller things that will have the biggest impact on and consequences for us.
Then you agree that business cannot grow in a vacuum, a truth that is applicable both on and off the internet. People make businesses thrive…Your relationships with people will affect your bank!People make businesses thrive. Your relationships with people affect your bank!
If you do keep up with the news, you’ll notice a few of the biggest corporations do well because they’ve built really strong business relationships on every single level.
Building relationships from which you can profit is just as important for individual internet-based entrepreneurs including Bloggers!
Of course, when you’re just getting started you probably don’t have a lot of important contacts. Don’t let this hold you back though. After all, there are quite a few ways that you can go about forming relationships that are mutually profitable…Lets Look at them!
#1. Don’t Kiss and Run:
All too often, all attempts at building business relationships end when the first sale is made.
I know we were like that, I am afraid! In this instance you are either good at creating great copy that conveys all kinds of warmth and sincerity. Or you have the tongue of the Irish, but this quickly ends once you have your money…Others will notice this of you.
And, it does not take a brain-inbox to realize that you should continue offering great value, if you are to turn these buyers into loyal brand ambassadors. So, how do you do this? By going through the steps we shared in our Customer Retention episode here.
Keep on giving ever more great content, and even do more for those who have given you their money.
We have learnt and suggest that you adopt the attitude that your customers are special, thus worth nurturing your relationship with. Don’t be like the New Orchid Garden.
The main thing to keep in mind is; that your customers deserve to be treated well simply because they’ve bought something from you. More so if they are return customers.
#2. Automation Baby…
Okay in English, lets Automate or Systematize your Communication already!
We know we used to wonder how the heck do people send thousands of emails via google or yahoo or horse mail? 😊
Fortunately, we learnt that there’s a way you can make good use of your email to build a list that not many bloggers and marketers take advantage of.
Even if you have 10 or 10,000 subscribers, you can make a difference in their lives. But first you have to build that list. Then you send them an email where you offer to answer their questions or advise them on some topic relevant to your niche.
Don’t worry -this doesn’t mean devoting all your time to coaching the people on your list, as that would be very time consuming, to say the least.
And to build professional web pages that walk the talk we use LeadPages.
Alternatively, you could use A forum. This can be a useful platform for answering questions, as well as a great way to build relationships. And you don’t need to reinvent the wheel. Use facebook Groups; starting one is a possibility you might want to consider. Then hold a Q&A session on set dates and times. Let them know you will answer the most often asked questions and concerns. For instance I do a Free Training Q&A Friday 1:10pm UK every week on our Page, you can watch the last Q&A I held here.
Of course, the best way to build business relationships is in person, belly to belly!
#3. Best Way and Place to Build Business Relationships:
Of course, the best way to build business relationships is in person, belly to belly! Yet we live in a global digital village and so connecting with people anywhere you chose has never been easier.
And that brings us to the best places to connect, Communicate and Build that bridge…Talking of the 2-Cs, you may not have heard of our 4-C Formula to your first 10k Online. You can do so here!
We cannot fail to mention social media because we have and continue to build our brand success online! And our Focus is on 2 Platforms.
– Facebook for Instant Authority building and that personal connection.
– Pinterest for the amazing brand exposure, growth and Traffic getting. No better platform for this at time of publishing this post.
I have mastered and continue to study Pinterest. I wrote a book about it “The Art of Pinterest profits” get your copy on amazon.
I also Created a Full online course on How to build your Pinterest Assets, The Ultimate Pinterest Roadmap.
We keep an active presence on other social media sites such as Twitter and Instagram.
Now our recommendation is to Stick to 1 platform, find that person crushing it on there and follow them, learn their style, duplicate and master it. #Kerching 😉
Facebook for example, gives you ample opportunities to showcase your business expertise. There are groups on there that pertain to many different topics, as well as the ability to put together a group that interests you and publishing your content…Positioning, authority…all that good juice!
Basically, you should be looking for other business owners or people from your target audience and connect with them. It is the contact and rapport you can establish that leads to business deals, JVs and much more.
#4. Read that Book on Building Business Relationships
So, can I ask you something?
Did you know you can build a relationship with someone without having ever met them? How you may ask?
Well, have done it, we have made very good friends on facebook. One being with our coach Tanya Aliza. We built such rapport we were invited to the most intimate event one can have. Her wedding in the Caribbean no less… And we had never met in person!
We have since met at various events, made more friends in the entrepreneur circles, cemented our friendship and business relationships!
Now, let me ask you another Question….
When was the last time you read an expertly authored book or article about customer relations and business relationships? There ya go… You could find mentors. coaches or even a friend through a book.
We aren’t criticizing you, we are just highlighting what you can do to get more done.

We can promise that you will have your eyes opened when you see just how broad this subject can be. Plus, you will walk away with more than a few excellent ideas you can use in your own business.

You need to keep in mind that this doesn’t need to stop with the people in your audience. We strongly recommend you use the same approach with everyone you contact. Looking beyond that, you need to take the time to learn as much as possible about relationship building from people who are experts on the subject.
The reason that you do this is because there are lots of powerful methods out there for you to discover. Even if you’re an old hat at business, you always have room to get better and be more successful.
