It’s the era of relationship-based selling…and relationships in general. Web 2.0 may have brought everything into one place, but ironically the world seemed a bit more disjointed. Building rapport is the first step to engaging in a relationship, and S. Anthony Iannarino has some amazing tips on helping you to break through the ice. For example:
Be Human: Well, you’re already human. But be really human. Share the things that make you human. You have feelings. You have a husband or a wife or a significant other or kids or a hobby or something. Sharing the experiences that make you human make it safe for the person you are engaging with to share theirs. Boom! Connected.
