Are You In It To Win It?

When you live in New York City you are competing all day everyday. It’s a rat race, but this energy of bustling people 24 hours a day is the foundation for one of the most interesting cities in the world. If you are not “in it to win it,” every minute in NY, you will not be able to compete.

The difference between a successful person and others is not lack of strength, not lack of knowledge, but rather lack of will. -Vince Lombardi

When you are in any contest you should work as if there were, to the very last minute, a chance to lose it. -Dwight Eisenhower

How Do You Win in The Thank You Economy?

thank youThis is a great question. The answer is Social Media. I receive friend requests on Facebook every week from people I’ve yet to meet in real life. The same thing happens on LinkedIn. Are they looking to add me as a contact or trying to make a connection with me? I’m interested in making connections.

The total quantity of contacts is secondary to the quality of connections you can build with social media. Sharing good content with a few quality connections on Facebook, Pinterest, Google+ and Instagram can help you retain and attract clients. Take the initiative in creating quality connections:

  • Post a “review” on a FB Business Page and they will be more inclined to post a “review” of your business.
  • Share a relevant “post” with a neighborhood page or an organization
  • Post a “review” on Google+

The benefits of doing this are amazing. Is it really that difficult to “shock” your clients by showing them how much you care? All of their information is online. How are you using it to win them over and create a following of raving fans?
