The cornerstone of every successful business is networking. Being able to relay your message and exchange information with potential partners and clients is a powerful tool to grow your business. However, not everyone is knowledgeable and skilled in this area of expertise. But do not worry. Sometimes, it only takes the guidance of others who have experience in the field to ease your process in learning how to leverage your interactions and connections and, consequently, build a successful venture. In Chris D. Bentley’s latest book titled Extreme Networking: Become a Connector in a 2020 World, he shares several fundamental networking techniques and tips to help you grow your business.
Once you have courted people to trust you and your work, it is crucial to maintain the interest of your clients. Not only do you want to have a successful negotiation with your clients and close deals, but you should also develop a healthy and sustainable relationship with them by providing exceptional customer service. By exceeding clients’ expectations, they are convinced to come back for more and refer you to other potential clients. In addition, as a real estate professional, you must also listen to your clients’ demands so you can efficiently and adequately address their needs. In doing so, you will be able to grow your network, as well as your business. By leveraging technology, specifically social media platforms, Chris is able to provide exceptional care to his client’s concerns.
In Chris’s experience in real estate, half of his earnings came from clients who repeatedly availed of his services and referrals, while the other half came from social media exposure. With the advent of technology, it became easy for him to create and sustain relationships with his clients that allowed him to grow his business to its present state. His online presence has garnered him an audience on various online platforms, such as YouTube, which create a brand and name in real estate. At present, Chris is the organizer of Plano Socialites, a local business networking Facebook group with over 3,700 members.
