Challenge to the Best: Tell me how you build relationships.

First, yes I used the search bar and searched for this, but if it doesn't pop right up, its a waste of time searching.


Sahil, the CEO of this platform, said good salespeople spend every ounce of energy building relationships and spending time with those people and all of their free time on prospecting rather than LinkedIn.


Therefore, invite to the best of the best! How do you build relationships?

Man, I think one thing that's easy to do is over analyze. @MMMGoodย has some great thoughts, but I just start with talking with people. If there is a good vibe and I want to build the relationship I take more time to talk to them and learn about their experiences and share mine. I think the rest of it comes with the territory if you want to build the relationship.ย

It's true...a lot of it comes down to how you also want to invest your own time and energy.ย

Yea, itโ€™s easy to use stats or whatever and say ok whatโ€™s the best way to do X and only focus on doing those things. When Iโ€™m reality Iโ€™m a believer that sometimes you just do it.

Empathize. Actually care about their interests and don't feign interest in it. I know Corp made a Linkedin post this morning mocking the question, but actually have a genuine interest in what they did over the weekend.ย
