7 Success Tips that Serve

  1. Make quality connections – When you meet people for the first time, pause to be fully present and make a sincere connection with them. We are all busy. Often when we meet people at networking or social events, it is a quick and superficial. Dare to be different. Focus on quality connections rather than quantity of connections. People will appreciate your sincerity and be more open to doing business with you.
  2. Focus on them – We are all tuned into our own favorite radio station WIIFM – What’s in it for me. When you meet new people, be different. Focus your full attention and interest on them. Ditch the pitch. Ask them short open-ended questions that elicit long explanation answers. Listen and learn. They will tell you how to serve and sell them.
  3. Serve instead of sell – Sell is a 4-letter word. Serve rather than sell. This success tip requires a new approach to selling. If you serve your ideal client, the sales will happen naturally. People are shopping for solutions that solve problems, relieve pain, or satisfy a need. Support and serve them in getting their needs met.
  4. Dare to be different – We all want to fit in. Belonging is a basic human need. But, so is the desire to be loved and accepted for who you are. Rather than compromising yourself to fit into the group, why not blaze your own trail to attract your true tribe? How are you unique? How can you stand out and get people’s attention?
  5. Be a problem solver – We all want life to be easy, but it isn’t. It is natural for us to avoid unpleasant experiences and resist what is uncomfortable or hurts. Be a champion who helps people solve problems, relieve pain, and satisfy needs. This is related to serving. Go a step further. Dig in. Roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty. Work up a sweat on your client’s behalf. How committed are you to providing something of value for them? Find solutions that improve their quality of life.
  6. Provide value – Show people you are on their side and that you genuinely want to help them get what they want and need. Prove that you are trustworthy. Invest some of your own talent capital in them. Show them that you are not just there to make money, but that providing them with something of value is your top priority. Prove it. Under promise and over deliver. Make exceeding expectations an everyday occurrence in your business.
  7. Help them succeed – When they succeed, you succeed. Focus on the end-results your ideal client desires. Do whatever it takes to help them accomplish their goals and dreams, even if it is not directly connected to the product or service you provide. Invest the extra time and effort to help them succeed. They will notice and appreciate it.
