Life has been crazy hectic lately. When is it ever slow in my life? I’ve just gotten over the flu bug and it must have been a strong strain because no amount of Emergen-C was working this time around. I’ve been able to avoid a cold/flu for the past year with Emergen-C so my no cold/flu record has officially been broken.

I’ve also been busy with tinkering with my new blog design for my fat loss blog.  I have to give many props to Tony Newton from the Warrior forum for all of his help with my new design. It takes some getting used to working with the new blog theme but I’m getting the hang of it and it has a cool look. Thanks so much Tony!! You are the best!

My next project is to convert my free blog to a self hosted site. I’m having a hard time choosing between 2 wordpress themes. One of them has the functionality that I want but not necessarily all of the colors that I would prefer. I know colors can be changed in the CSS area but do I really want to get into all of that detail? Ok I digress and am doing too much relationship marketing right now..On to my tips…

Relationship Marketing Tip #1:

Do Your Best To Make Your Intentions Clear From The Start

It is very important to let your readers know your intentions. I love to research things that are of interest to me and let others know about my findings. I like to offer this information and guide people along the way. This is especially true for my fat loss blog. I’m on a quest to lose my belly fat and I’m sharing my ups and downs along the way. I’ve had more people buy my products because they see the success that I’m having with my own weight loss rather than me trying to shove something down their throats. I share what’s going on in my life, the good and the bad because people can relate to that.

Relationship Marketing Tip #2:

Make Your Customers Feel Like They Can Talk To You And That You Actually Care About What They Have To Say

I value input and direction and I try my best to answer questions and and provide feedback to relate to my customers. I make it my goal to respond to people and make them feel included. Everyone wants to feel like they are wanted and belong to a group. Why not let it be my group of growing your business on the internet or my group of moms trying to lose that stubborn belly fat?

Relationship Marketing Tip #3:

Be Yourself Even If Some People Don’t Like It

I love joking around and at times it comes out in my blogs. I have to remember to do this more often because my husband and I could be the next stand up comedians in real life. Or maybe it’s just that we both crack up at each other, I don’t know. :) We’ve had people tell us that we could take our show on the road…ha! ha!

I could give ya a bunch more relationship marketing tips but I’ll stop here for now. Enjoy your weekend! I plan to celebrate my 10 year anniversary since last week I was too sick to celebrate! A mudslide sounds really good right now…Yum!

    Hi Naomi.
    It’s good that you are talking about relationship marketing here. This is what I’ve been preaching online for years. Whether your business is offline or online makes no difference. You’ve got to build trust first before you try to sell anything. People don’t normally buy from strangers so what makes anyone think they can just blast out an ad and get results? Sure you might make a sale or two but how many ads are you going to send first? It might seem like building a relationship with people first takes more time but really it’s sending out ads that makes it take longer. People ignore them. So taking the time to build a good relationship is worth the time it takes. Do that first then you can start to ask them to take a look at what you’re doing or they will ask you themselves what you’re doing and it’s way better than sending random ads to strangers.
