If you want to be successful with your home businesses, you want to make sure that you’re building a great reputation. This is why it’s important to know how do people see you as. Are you valuable to them or just another marketer? Let’s see why know how people see you is important….
When people see you, do they say that you’re a person that always trying to sell them something or a person who is giving?
I don’t mean just giving value. I mean giving in a sense that they just want to be around you because you make them feel comfortable and at ease. It could online and offline, it doesn’t matter. You’re just someone that they just want to be around.
For most of us, we are so focus on building our businesses that we shun off being human. If you ever go to your businesses meetings or been on webinars where they talk about why we join an opportunity and why we stay, then you know what I’m talking about.
Yes there are a lot of opportunities out there, and we join to fulfill some personal needs, but if you’re around great people, you stay for the relationships. I believe this is true with any endeavor you come across.
I can remember when I first started job as a computer technician, I was just amazed at how the network was setup and my main focus was to learn all I can about it and how it worked. Well although it was exciting, the exciting didn’t last too long.
I found out that I was coming in to work because of the people more so than the technology that was there. A lot of my coworkers taught me a lot and also I clown around with them at times. I was lucky to be in this type of environment working with these types of different personalities. There were very few I didn’t get along with. But for the most part, they were the reasons why I love coming to work and on top of that, they love working with me as well as being around me.
Now when you’re talking to your prospects whether it be online, over the phone, or in person do they feel the same way about you? Are you always serious and “business-like”, or are you the type of person that they feel real comfortable around?
Now there’s nothing wrong with being serious from time to time. You still want people to have trust and faith in you too. But at the same time, you want them to be attracted to you by letting them be themselves around you. With this mixture, you can definitely build a big following! Here are 5 tips I came up with that I find important when dealing with people and growing your home business:
Do You Joke Around With Them?
Laughter is medicine to the soul. One way for people to feel comfortable around you is to joke around with them. Releasing stress is one common denominator that people don’t want to have. For a lot of your prospects and leads this may be their first time starting a home business. For others, they may have constantly failed at their previous home businesses and are little hesitant in starting a new one. So a great ice-breaker to help them feel at ease is to get them to laugh.
Do You Compliment?
Giving compliments is definitely underrated. You want people to feel confident around you, and what better way to do so is to compliment them. Point out something you like about them and/or what they’re doing. Let them know what you notice about them that very few have. This is a way to help them see what you see within them. They’ll definitely appreciate it.
Do You Offer Help?
Home business is not an “every man for himself” business. Offer some help. I’m not saying let them take advantage of you, but you want to show that you’re willing to offer some assistance with no strings attached. Often times I see people who will only connect with you only if you do business with them. This is definitely a No, No and is very unattractive. Find it within yourself why you want people to help you without owing them and see this in others.
Do You Give Great Recommendations That Resonates With Others?
I see a lot of people giving recommendations just for personal gain. People aren’t dumb. They can feel this. If you give recommendations and you’re going to get compensated for them, it shows great manners to let them know that. Outside of that, give recommendations that you know will help the other person whether you get compensated or not. This shows how much concerned you are about their success.
How Are You Building Other People?
Last but not least, you want to question yourself on how you’re building people up. This question sums up the previous questions. You want to evaluate how you’re doing at being a people person. Always see how you can improve. Ask yourself how you can be more genuinely attractive to others as far as your character. Once you start making this a habit, your results will speak for itself!
Now it’s Your Turn!
