December 3, 2023

By Ajith Guptha

There are lot of people who will use their personal network for business. They will get the help of a friend or family member when they desperately need a sale. Also, with the personal network you have tons of people trying to boast your career by having your business cards passed out, and also by having your family and friends put in a good word for you.

First to use your network you have to be a good person. This means that you have to be good and honest about your sales. You will also find that there is a lot of integrity needed for a network to work for you. This means that when someone does you a favor, you give him or her something in return as a favor. When you play the system with honesty and without promising anyone anything special, you will be able to pocket a lot of commission from your sales.

Not only will you want to work on your character, but also the way that you present your business. This means that when you promise to do something you do it with complete honestly. You will find that there is a lot of ways that you can represent yourself as a person with good character, however, make sure that you keep the representation of yourself in a positive light.

In addition, you don’t want to burn bridges ahead of time. You don’t want to do or say anything that might hurt your connection with the network. You will want to treat everyone with respect and thank him or her always for his or her aid with gratitude. The only thing is that sometimes your network might lead you to bad leads or dead ends. This may mean the worst for your sales number if you try to go after a bunch of leads that go nowhere. In suggestion as to not waste your valuable time, you will want to catch up on every lead and let them mellow into something prosperous before you go to pursue them. You may find that you have a guarantied sale, or you may end up having a sale that leads to nowhere, but you will want to learn how to pick the successful leads from the unsuccessful leads.

Not only will you want to think about the success of your leads, but the quality of source. When you take the time to look at the source, then you will be able to conquer the sales leads. It is important that you present yourself in a business manner, no matter whom it is that you are using as a personal connection. You will want to think about the way that you do business.

The whole reason why your sales numbers may injure you is just for the fact that you may not know proper etiquette. Make sure that you take inconsideration the way that you approach your leads and how you treat them. It may end up making the world of a difference.

To use the leads and get the sales you need to treat them like any other potential customer and show them courtesy at all times. You will find that you can double your sales if only you learn how to properly treat your customers. It is very important that you learn how to use your network for the positive. You will notice that there is some personal networking that you will do through social gatherings, but you will want to always keep your meetings professional, even if it is in a casual scene. You may end up with a lot more sales if you take the time to care for each and every lead.

    I’m a huge believer that personal and business networking are closely related and have also written about this subject. Not only have my personal friends helped me in business, but people in my business network have become friends. I think one of the keys is to always ask, “How can I help you?”
