How to earn my respect and reap big benefits
.

I met this fellow, Matt, on MySpace. His interests are similar to mine in that he wants to grow his business by the idea of "give then get". I am learning more about online networking each day now. The main thing I've learned is to never ever try to sell someone on the first contact in a networking situation.

I often get messages on social networking sites that go like "Nice to meet you, buddy. Come take a look at my $10,000 idea (link here)." The people who write this type of message are clueless, in my opinion. Their efforts are pretty much wasted.

Let me tell you, Matt over-gives if that is possible. He has at least six audio presentations on his website that you can listen to at no cost and they are chock full of great information.

I like Matt because when I listen to his tapes I come to the conclusion that there is not trickery there to try to get you to buy something. Of course, Matt DOES want you to buy something from him in hte long run, but he is willing to give away scads of stuff to earn the right to take your money when the time comes, and that time is totally up to you.

He sends me an email a day either through MySpace or to my email account. Because I know he will not be hawking his wares and because I know he always has a gem of an idea to share, I open his email and eagerly read it.

A few days ago I forked over $99 to join his upcoming teleseminar. Let me tell you, I am the king of cheapskates when it comes to buying stuff on the web. I've learned my lessons after a long time. Matt broke through my defenses because I think of him as my friend, as a person who would never ever cheat me. Plus I am savvy enough to know when I need expert help and just who the true experts might be.

Today I received an email from him. Here is the email:

< snip>

Hey there greg...how's your Myspace campaign going?� Driving in the leads yet?� If not you should take advantage of my open phone hours today and give me a call to pick my brain a bit.� Getting great leads from Myspace is really easy (if you know how to do it that is!).� I'm here to help so give me a ring at 555-555-5555. (obviously I had to change the phone number)

< /snip>

Isn't that a good idea? Matt is willing to risk his valuable time for some people he is networking with. I guess he thinks I am someone worth cultivating. I did call and his wife said he was out but that he would return my call as soon as he got back home.

It's hard to forget someone like this.

Hey, if you have the time, take a look at my marketing blog. Yesterday I wrote some cool stuff about YouTube and how you can use it to your advantage.

Greg,

Excellent! Thank you for sharing this. I agree 100%. It's all about building a relationship and your friend Matt understands this more than most.

Sending blessings to you and yours,
Kim

I agree, building relationships is so important, online, and off! Your local chamber is a great place to take SOC's.

Have any of you joined your local BNI chapter? I just wonder if it would be to my advantage to join, especially in light of the fact that I am looking for a job that entails working daytime hours, and my local BNI meets each Wednesday from 7:30-9:00a!

I'm debating whether the investment would pay off? It's $75 + $295 for the year.

Kelly,

I wish I had an answer for you. I haven't looked into it.

Kim, I think I'll go to one more meeting (tomorrow morning) and see if I want to join...

I really need to figure it out soon, but right now I'm debating whether it will be a good move for me because of the situation with my job hunting. If I could do a job that started at 10am that would be perfect! I'd rather just continue staying home, but a steady income is very important....I'm still going to continue on what I've been doing for now, working for Job Corps as an on-call.

Thanks again! Kelly

Yes, absolutely do BNI. Your price is a steal. I believe it's about $550 in my market. I am in another group called PRE which is basically the same thing, but only in Ohio, as mornings won't work for me. With the SOC endorsement from BNI and the mention in Misner's Truth or Delusion book and the interview that Dr Misner did on the SOC conference call, it's a no brainer. I took the conference call from the cd and reposted it online.

Carlos, I did it! I joined BNI, and became an official member today! It has been a lot of fun, I already have a new wholesale account out of the group, and more to come! A member that owns his own carpet cleaning business wants to meet with me, and an accountant! I'm so excited...

I wanted to clarify something, the registration fee was $75 and the yearly fee was $295, and if I paid for two years it would be $455. The total of my membership was $370, but I won't have to pay the $75 again.

We get to meet with Norm Dominguez, the person who is taking over for Dr. Misner in June in Anchorage! What a great opportunity for our chapter!

Well thanks again for the encouragement, and the link to the interview with Dr. Misner and Norm Dominguez, I printed some of them off to show the chapter!

Ta ta for now! Kelly ; )
Official Member of BNI!
