Today I’m sharing a 10-minute snippet of one of our training sessions in the past year over at the TSE Hustlers League as we talked about how to build connections and rapport with your prospects.
You’ve probably heard this so many times that people do business with those they know, like, and trust. They simply want to truly connect with someone and feel that you are not pushing on to them something they don’t need.
Effective Ways of Building Rapport with Your Prospects:
Have the right attitude. The angriest people tend to have people who are also mean to them. Be a jerk and you will get jerks. Have a bad attitude and you will get buyers who have bad attitude. Before you even get to work, be sure you’re mentally there. So having the right attitude is critical as it determines your performance.
What is your purpose in doing this business? Use your passion and motivation as fuel to keep pushing yourself every single day.
Have the right gestures. Smile and maintain eye contact. Even when you’re just speaking over the phone, there is a difference when you’re talking with your head down as opposed to talking with your head up. Since you’re opening your diaphragm, you will sound more confident. Pretend you’re looking at your customers in the face.
Get to them on a personal level to show them you care and that you want to help them.
We’re starting a new semester of the TSE Hustlers League in October where we will be having a 12-week training primarily focused on Prospecting and how you can get successful at it.
