Advocated Partners Are Key To Your Success!
We all love it when we get the referral but advocated partners are key to your success!
Thrive about building up your bank of advocated partner of good quality people. When a Thrive member or your customer or client becomes an advocate, they are now a partner in your success. You have achieved a level of knowledge, trust, reliability, and friendship that leads to an enthusiastic supporter of your success. To gain that level of trust, you have to get to know your fellow member, and get involved with what they are passionate about.
For the vast majority of people, the most important topic of conversation is themselves. So make it your job to find out what motivates them, what their challenges are. Ask open questions, ones starting ‘how’, ‘why’, ‘what’ and ‘who’, to find out what makes them tick. Then try and find a way to help them. It may be sending them a relevant article or connecting them to one of your contacts. But the key point is that you must be interested in them.
The key to building advocates is sincerity. Your support must be real and of substance. If you are sincere, your sincerity will shine through and lead to new opportunities
Dale Carnegie said, “You can close more business in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get people interested in you.” But you have to mean it!
