Change your thoughts about how to make money online.

Last Update: June 09, 2014

We all want to make money online, but we should be thinking about people and relationship building instead of only thinking about $$signs in our head.

This is a good article about relationship marketing. Let me know your thoughts on it.

I liked your post a lot. For someone like me, a newbie, it helps me to understand its more than just writing posts. Its building long lasting friendships.
Thanks again and have a great day!

In the "old" days the shop owner was interested in your welfare as you were a valued customer , unlike todays sterile multi national overseas owned mega stores and it is great to see that people are beginning to treat their customers as a person not a dollar sign.I agree 100%!Great story on your website.

Relationship, the golden rule of sales!

I think because we are looking at a computer or tablet we 'forget' we are dealing with people. The same principle applies to sales before the internet.... relationships and then sales will follow. At least I don't have to drive for six hours with no car phone ..ahhh those were the days.

I don't know about anyone else, but the part I kind of get stuck on in social media is just adding people in without knowing anything about them. So how do you keep growing on social media? Does anyone have good suggestions?

I think Kyle sums it up in one of his courses where he reminds us that we are dealing with people in this business. It just doesn't stop there. In everygthing we do, work, play, worship, shop, we deal with people.

I know that when I am approached in a retail environment in a friendly manor by the sales associate and they are more than willing to converse with me, laugh and joke, I am more willing to open up to them and more receptive towards making a purchase.

Thanks for the article. Nice to see someone reminding us that not only are we Human, but that we are also dealing with others such as ourselves.

Thanks, Ken.

I like the simpler times myself. My family came from the UK version of that which is talked about in the article. We had running water but when I went to stay as a youngster we filled a tin bath in front of the ire. No plumbed- in bath tub:)

I need to make money so that I can happily take care of the people who matter to me....I don't make money just to make money. That's a good article. It mentions a guy wanting to work for Wall-Mart. The impression I get is that some readers may frown on his lack of ambition. If you sweep the street or dig ditches and are a good happy person. You're a success right there.

A rich man dying surrounded by hired help is as poor as any hobo in my eyes.

Throw away your mindset of making money online! That is an inevitable realization that many of us are beginning to embrace once we have a better understanding of the concept of adding value to the customers' experience.

Thanks for bringing this post to our attention. We need to be reminded as often as possible.

That's right you have a point. Hence, I've been trying so hard to think of how I can add more value to my content. Giving the readers more info about your niche or topic will definitely increase your ranking.
