Creating a Campaign of Helpfulness to Build Relationships That Stick

By Mo Bunnell

In this set of videos, we are going to be talking about early-stage relationships. There’s a lot of science around this but in this episode of Real Relationships Real Revenue, I’m sharing tips for getting your interactions just right early in your relationships for momentum that lasts. I share ways to take notes for hireable and human follow-ups, why you should keep them short, and how to develop systems for implementation.

Topics We Cover in This Episode:

  • Why your early interactions matter
  • Why following up is so important with new relationships
  • How to take notes when meeting new people
  • Why you need to do this immediately when meeting someone
  • Why you want to focus on human follow-ups too
  • How to show commonality
  • What types of notes to take
  • How to build a plan
  • Why short interactions are better than long follow-ups
  • Why it’s important to have reminders
  • Tools to use to stay organized
  • The time frame to use to send out your follow-ups

You have to avoid treating new relationships like you would a relationship that you’ve had for a long time. You need extra care, extra value, and extra attention in the first month or two of a relationship. You don’t have to do this for everybody. But for your most important new relationships, you want to have a system for following up and adding value. Using these tips will help you build momentum and create relationships that stick.
