Building relationships is a powerful way to grow your business. What is the best way to go about it? Is it better to build a relationship on Facebook or meet people face-to-face? How can you use networking to establish yourself as a rockstar in your market? On this episode, we are joined by Steven David Elliot and Nicholas Cioffi from Rockstar Connect who share how to network at the highest level.
Having a networking event where you’re the economic engine for your community, and the benevolent person that wants to help other people elevates your status.– Steven David Elliot
Three Things We Learned
Nothing beats human to human contact
Social media is a great way to communicate with people and build relationships, but nothing deepens a relationship faster than meeting face-to-face. This is why networking is so powerful.
Be a giver, connector and helper in your community
If you really want to get the most out of your networking, your events cannot be about you and what you want, but rather about being a person of value to the people around you. If you do more for your community, it will make an impact on your business too.
Contributing to your community makes an impact
The goal through networking is to make thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands and ultimately, millions of dollars for your community.
Don’t think of people in terms of transactions, think of them in terms of relationships.– Matt Johnson
We need to learn to have more powerful conversations.-Greg McDaniel
People want to do business with people they already know, like and trust and it can often feel like that process takes a while. There’s nothing that accelerates the process of people trusting and liking you more than becoming an altruistic person in your community, being a provider of value and actually caring about the people around you. This type of networking will give you the highest return on investment and elevate your status in your market.
