Attract The Right Job Or Clientele: 

We each have various experiences as we attempt to connect with others that bring the question to mind, Do You Value Your Connections? Over the years, running away from some would have been preferable, yet, it’s wise most of the time to hang in to discover underlying issues and potential solutions.

My Story

Social media paved the way for me to find and connect with those who hold similar priorities and ideals. Unless we desire to spend large sums of money on purchasing advertising and publicity, we can promote one another on the varying platforms without a fee. And the more collaborative we become, the more exposure we receive. The quote, ‘give and you shall receive’ generally holds true and sometimes explodes more than ten-fold. 

Accordingly, when an acquaintance comes to mind, check-in to see how they are doing. Upon reconnecting, new ideas may arise that will benefit all concerned. Similarly, as we reach out to new connections, instead of inquiring if they have interest in our services, the better approach is to review their profile upfront to see if you may have something in common. Then you will be able to attract their attention by mentioning something you read and liked and then asking a question concerning what they do. During the conversation, you may hear a topic of which the person can use help. 

The friendly conversation style works best for client and business growth. Being in a deep conversation requires considering all the suggestions we hear carefully. The same applies to whether we are on a committee, conversing with friends, or at a business meeting. It’s best to ask many questions to gain a deeper understanding. At the same time, we see the opportunities ahead to collaborate with the people who operate similarly. 

Adhering to these conversational suggestions allows us to answer ‘Yes!’ to the question, do you value your connections?’ Accordingly, we can quash the idea of giving up and instead embolden our plan for moving forward.

Your Story: Do You Value Your Connections?

As you read through the insights, consider whether you follow the advice, dismiss it, or should seriously contemplate whether to move forward with some. Without being judgmental, we can make better decisions and progress more efficiently.  

Focus on the bigger picture to embrace the concept to value your connections. We learn from both the good and poor experiences. For example, upon realizing that someone works in a way you do not admire, that can be a teaching moment should you take a moment to heed the lesson. One strategy is to take a few minutes each evening to recall the day’s worst and the better events. Mentally compare the occurrences to decipher your takeaways and how you may improve upon tomorrow.

Treat your clientele as valuable connections and resources. Traditionally, most salespeople only see the value in clients via the sales that come forth. But there is far more to the puzzle, including referrals and rave reviews. By demonstrating that we value the connection with each, we earn their loyalty and grow business.

It is in the free-flowing conversations that golden nuggets of insight may be yours. But just taking is a selfish and limited effort that produces few if any results. The better tactic is to share what you learn with peers and the communities that speak to your interests. The reward comes by way of appreciation for the effort you put in and demonstrating that you value your connections.

Some may wonder, ‘what’s in it for me if I continually contribute my knowledge?’ It’s a lesson many of us need to learn. Upon sharing the best of what we know, the appreciation returns in various ways, including unexpected opportunities. You soon connect with leaders in your field and collaboratively create new products and services for the greater community.  

As the activities increase, you may want to consider the one issue that continues to concern or even haunt you to do this day? If you can make one change in the world, what will it be, and how will it appear? You may want to research to see if an organization dedicated to the issues already exists and inquire about the possibility of participation. Otherwise, what is the potential for you to begin a community that dedicates itself to resolving the problem (s) on your mind? Are any of your peers willing to pitch in to help? Working together to resolve concerns will become evident that you value your connections.

Sales Tips:  Do You Value Your Connections?

  1. As opportunities arise, include your connections as appropriate.
  2. When conversations have you thinking about another, reach out to them after the fact to gain their input.
  3. Upon building out new projects, consider which connections may have interest and want to help.
  4. Strive to work for a more robust benefit of many rather than just yourself and enjoy the greater reward.
  5. Be an inclusive team member who will earn return invitations.
  6. Treat prospective clients as your network connections, and they will show their appreciation of the extra effort.
  7. Inquire of your clientele if they have issues that need resolution as you are willing to help.
  8. Be of service wherever possible to earn a returning and referring clientele.
  9. Demonstrate to everyone that you value your connections.
  10. Celebrate Success!
