    Nice!! it’s awesome that you post this, because this week I made the point to connect with more people – and in more creative ways!

    We truly have to wow the people we come into contact with… reaching them from all reaches of the earth wows them..

      It is so cool to come up with creative ways to connect with people… it’s more fun and memorable for them.

      And you’re right, when we get to connect with people from different countries and cultures it raises the wow factor.

      Keep connecting… and thank you for the comment.

    Great to meet you guys. Glad to have you as part of the TSA.

    I totally agree with you. With all of the access to information and sharing on social networks it is no longer the job of the sales person to impart this stuff. I think of it as back to the fundamentals of how we are created and made for relationship with each other.

    Thanks again for this.

    Make it a great day!
    God Bless,

      It was awesome to meet you too! And we are very happy to be a part of the TSA… looking forward to connecting with a lot of great people.

      Love your perspective… we are made and structured for relationships and it’s amazing how we’ve come full circle to where we see how important relationships are.

      Have a Cool day Ed, and thank you for the comment.

    Hey cool guys, great post. You are so right. The dynamics of selling have changed significantly with the arrival of social media. The know-like-trust factor plays a huge role in how successful you are these days.

      Hey Karin,

      It’s almost like an equation:
      Know + Like + Trust = Success

      And it is amazing the impact social media has made on our marketing strategies. We feel like it’s made it a lot more fun because we actually get to connect with a lot of very cool people.

      Thanks so much!

    Great post you two, you got a rockin blog here. Very excited to have found you through TSA and connect with you here as well.

    Knowing your target market is one of the most fundamental things that people miss out on. Newbies think that they can just come online, pop some offers in Facebook or Twitter and start making sales. While some will get lucky and make a few, ultimately you will not get anyone if you don’t take the time to educate yourself on the proper marketing skills and techniques.
