I am seeing how true this is with Romi of True Bride Confessions.
We got connected through Jade’s review on Bridezilla of Romi’s site.
Romi liked it, called me up, we chatted, she put a banner on her site for us, I gave her some internet marketing advice…
Now I find myself setting up analytics goals to help her better promote her site. For free. Because I like her and she is being nice to us by having the Bridezilla banner on her site.
What I am seeing here is that, while I hope we do business together, it is the giving and receiving of basic value that begins the relationship.
Feedback on this post says that sales is like gardening- put in effort now, nurture your contacts, and eventually some will bear results.
And, it’s a long term effort.
Gittomer and Romi, thanks for the lesson!
