Is time building customer relationships worth it? To succeed as a sales leader, do you really need to take the time building customer relationships? Does the relational effort payoff in the end? On this episode of #SellingWithSocial, Ed describes the importance of building a deeper relationship with specific customers rather than relying a broad and generic relationship. Ed doesn’t rail against digital connections, he encourages sales leaders like you to leverage digital resources to make those connections as personal as possible.

On this episode of #SellingWithSocial, Ed shares the principle of worthy intent and how it can make all the difference in building customer relationships. The principle of worthy intent is not just about having good intentions, it's about the behaviors you see from your customers as they respond to the way you treat them. In our conversation, Ed shares a story of how a children's hospital earned his family’s loyalty not based on their good intentions alone but on how they communicated those intentions and made them present in the lives of those they aimed to serve. To hear the whole story from Ed and to find out how you can deepen your business relationships, make sure to listen to this episode! Discover why integrity is one of the most important values. Did you know that a study that found that there are no “Trust neutral interactions?” Researchers discovered that every time you interact and communicate with someone, they will either trust you more or they will trust you less. I don’t know about you but that really makes me pause and consider how I interact with the closest people in my life and my customers! On this episode of #SellingWithSocial, Ed uses the lesson found in this study to drive home the importance of operating with integrity. You won’t become an expert at building customer relationships if you don’t deal with integrity. Ed encourages leaders like you to do a self-evaluation and consider how your interactions with customers could be perceived, are you giving people an opportunity to trust you more or less?
