Why Relationships Are SO Important
You’re walking through a crowded mall while the smell of deep-fried, delicious food inhabits your nose; you’re checking out everything there is to purchase – there are SO many options, it’s nearly overwhelming; briefcases, luggage, a new suit, phone cases, Zippos, joggers, Jordans – it’s all sitting there almost glistening. You watch couples discuss what the other should wear, you see a young boy trying on shoes with his father watching nearby. People are immersed in the environment of consumption.
Then, it happens. You lock eyes with a popup kiosk worker. A larger-than-life smile slides onto their face as if it was pulled out of an overfilled bag, completely composed of overly animated expressions. You know what’s coming next – an uncomfortable and pressing conversation where all they’re trying to do is get you to pull out that precious credit card and swipe away.
Nothing else really matters to them, and that’s the issue. That’s why you’ll never pull out your card. Because you understand that this relationship, albeit small, is completely based upon the other’s self-serving desires.
Chances are, you’ve found yourself in a very similar situation previously. You can relate to the unbounded feeling of uncomfortability that wafts through the air. There’s a reason for that: the relationship is inauthentic. All they want to do is sell you something – all they want, the vast majority of the time, is your economic energy (those dollar bills).
There’s nothing more important than good, authentic relationships. Even with, or especially with, your customers or clients. Developing authentic and deep relationships with your customers will be the difference between them spending $1000s instead of mere $100s.
People don’t buy from robots, they don’t buy from thieves, and they don’t buy from people they dislike. But they’ll damn near empty their wallets for someone whose company they GENUINELY enjoy. Be that person.
Be the person who pulls others in. Be the person who is generous, be the person who wants the best for the client, be the person who puts people before money. Be the person that develops strong, meaningful relationships.
Bless your ears by checking out this one – it’s what we like to call a “paradigm-shifter”.
