Is Your Business Dating Online?

I got a lead today from the web, and it was a good one. I had a great talk with a guy who will probably do business with me. It made me think of some of my professional relationships and when I think of where they originated, it was the Internet. In fact, as a joke sometimes if we are introduced in a business setting, I will say “yeah, we met online,” It gets a laugh, but it gets the point across. The point is that people are meeting online ever day to do business. The question is “are you out there?”

So what’s the best way to get dates for your business? Get Social!
People use social media sites to find soulmates, but businesses use them to find customers and clients. The keys are:

1. Be Available. If you are not set up on Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter, and Google+, you are not telling your prospects that you chances are you are behind your competition. They are getting calls and they are getting dates.

2. Take the Relationship Offline. If you have ever dated online, you will know that you don’t get an email by chatting, emailing, and texting. You have to ask for a date. Make sure you aren’t just being used by your prospects for free information. Ask them qualifying questions that would lead them closer to an appointment (a date.)

3. Enjoy the Marriage. Marriage is a lot or work, but it’s one of the best investments you can make because the work will pay off in an amazing relationship. Hopefully you experience the same with your customer, with a long term relationship.

So what are you waiting for? Get online, and go get a date!
