The Secret To Overcome Phone Phobia
It is really not a secret… you just need to become your customers’ friend!
It IS that simple. Don’t you agree that you can call your friends with no problem?

Here are some ideas on how to become your customers’ friends:

- At networking opportunities focus on them not yourself
- Ask them their birthday
- If they are married then ask their anniversary
- Find out how many children they have
- Learn more about the hobbies they love
- Use POOF to learn as much as you can about everyone you meet: Passions, outside activities, occupation, family
Looking for more friends is a stress reducer! Take the pressure off yourself, relax and have fun making friends!
Just learn anything you can about the people you meet, like a friend would!!
Once you have this information record it somewhere.
Google calendars is a great system of reminders or Client Angel is a software program for direct sellers but whatever your system is, organize your customers and keep notes about what you have learned about them.
Use these tidbits of friendship when you contact them again.
- Message them and ask how their vacation was
- Send them a card on their birthday or anniversary
- Send them an e-mail article or link you find about a hobby they love
- Ask them how their kids are doing in their activities
It is easier than you think to become friends with your customers when you show an interest in their everyday lives.
Stop seeking business and start looking for new friends!
