1. How to build your support group.
Contact people who have similar interests...Remember, it is sometimes acceptable to contact people through their ads. This is one way to get started. If you see an ad for a program you belong to, write to that person and share your experiences. Let them know that you are interested in having someone to discuss different programs with, and then see if they respond. If they don't, try with someone else. Don't spam someone who is not interested...There are enough people who are. When they write back, start a communication about what you are trying to accomplish on intenet, what your life is like, whatever you feel comfortable with...Ask them what programs they are involved with, or their website address, and REALLY check them out...Don't just say you will...do it. Then you can write and discuss these things with them knowledgably, until you begin to build a trust, or friendship.
You can also write to people whose websites you admire....I don't know anyone who would not like to hear comments about their sites...They work very hard to bring them to you and like to know that work was appreciated. It's a great way to build contacts.
2. Keep in touch with people you come in contact with...
If you get a message from an upline member on a new program, write back! Let them know who you are, what you're like, and your goals...They are real people too! I met some of my best internet buddies through welcome letters, and that goes for your downline too...Always contact people who sign up for your programs, to let them know your door is always open, and that you LIKE personal contact...Encourage them to write you.
3. Do not "group" your contacts
Don't send "getting to know you" emails to more than one person at a time...It's rude and will not help in building a lasting relationship. Each of my discussion buddies is an individual, and I have different relationships with them all. This is not to say that you can't send a new opportunity to more than one of them at a time, as long as you have a trusting relationship with each of them, and know that they won't spam your other buddies.
Value friendships that you build and don't abuse them...Make sure you keep in touch with these people on a personal basis, more than a "check this out" one...Once you build these relationships, you will have them forever. It is a great gift that you don't want to lose.
In truth, those simple things listed above were secret to my success...just a little attitude adjustment on my part, to treat people like "real people" and not just some anonymous robot on other end...Try it...It really works!!
I truly hope these simple rules will help you succeed...Feel free to contact me at any time...I LOVE building personal contacts...smile Please visit my website at http://firststop.webjumo.com for all free resources you need...
