An Educational Moment
|Expand Your Sphere of Influence|
In order to evaluate your sphere of influence, you need to take inventory of the people you know. When was the last time you really went through your complete contact list? Checked and assessed your e-mail address book, your mobile phone directory, your stacks of business cards.
Who do you know? Who have you forgotten that you know? Where are these people in the VCP process? Are some of them still at the pre-visibility stage? Do you want to move the relationship along? Invite them to a BNI meeting. Invite them to a chamber of commerce meeting.
Take your database and ask where am I with this person? Do they know who I am? Do they know what I do? Do they know that I am good at it? Have they ever given me referrals? Categorize your database into three categories: ·
In some cases, you might even be in pre-visibility. This means if you contact them, they may or may not remember you.
This week go through your database and determine where your contacts are in VCP. If you would like to move somebody along in the relationship, invite them to your BNI meeting in order to get to know them better. Even if they’re not necessarily a good fit for membership, inviting them to your BNI meeting is a great way to strengthen the relationship. Check out your database – likely it’s a gold mine.
