266: Freestyle Friday | Meet Your Hero - Follow Up
What happens when you don’t get the response you wanted from one of the people you want to network with the most? In this Freestyle Friday episode of Build Your Network, the Only Business Networking podcast on iTunes, your host Travis Chappell talks about the most important part of meeting your hero - the follow up.Episode Highlights:Always remember to go in for the initial ask first.Remember to be professionally persistent, even if you get a “no” at first.Five tips on follow up:1) If you do not get a response don’t follow up immediately, wait a few days and reach out in a different way. A no is just a not yet, just get better, creative, and figure out how to add value.2) If you do get a no don’t get upset and ignore them - be empathetic.3) Don’t offer something with conditions, offer it as a value-add.4) If you get a “not right now” be sure to follow up again, ask when is a good time to follow-up again.5) Get a smile on your face, try video the second time if you don’t do it the first.Download the FREE Meet Your Hero Course at TravisChappell.com.3 Key Points:Some people say no to everyone the first time, so professional persistence is key.Many times you’re only getting a “no” because someone is busy, figure out a way to differentiate yourself.Most of communication is body language, attempt to do a video chat with your hero and put a smile on your face.Tweetable Quotes:“There’s no follow up if there’s no initial ask.” -Travis“Don’t offer to do things with conditions, just do it as a value-add.” -Travis“Only 7% of communication is the words that we say.” -TravisResources Mentioned:Visit Travis’ website at https://www.travischappell.comLearn how Travis books his guests on the show download Meet Your Hero for free at travischappell.com/heroGet your free mastermind course from Travis here: Freemmcourse.com/enrollExplode Your Network at travischappell.com/explodeDownload the Himalaya app free in iTunes and Google Play

In this latest episode of The Only Business Networking Podcast on iTunes, we have Part 7 of the Who or What Series where Jordan Harbinger from the Jordan Harbinger Show, Amy Porterfield from the Online Marketing Made Easy Podcast, and Jeff Hoffman, serial entrepreneur from Priceline.com and Ubid.com talk to your host Travis Chappell, to continue the debate of whether who you know or what you know is more important, and why.Episode Highlights: Jordan Harbinger:It’s all about who you know - not just connecting up but up, down, and laterally.Your network is the most important resource you have.Short term - your network is great, long term - your network is crucial.How Jordan defines networking - helping people without the expectation of return and in a scalable way.When people help you and keep score they’ll write you off when you don’t reciprocate.Never think about networking transactionally.If you think everyone is taking advantage of you, it’s probably you.If someone won’t help you, even with small things, they’re probably taking advantage of you.Amy Porterfield:Who you know is important to a certain extent, but what you know is also important.People always need things done, so figure out what those things are.How Travis developed a relationship with John Lee Dumas and then got Amy Porterfield on the show.How Amy became friends with Marie Forleo and why she didn’t pay for that friendship.How to get started adding value to others.If you’re an evangelist for what someone is doing you can’t help but notice them.A person of influence is not going to tell you how they want you to support them.Jeff Hoffman:Who you know is more important because you don’t know everything.You’re not as smart as you think you are, and you’re not good at 12 things, you’re good at one thing.If you’re a founder/CEO/Manager you should schedule days to be out of the office to build your network.Why Jeff engages strangers all the time.How Jeff got a Universal Studios executive to come to be a partner in his independent studio.Most people neglect networking because they’re too busy being inefficient to stop and take time to be more efficient.3 Key Points:Networking is not all about schmoozing people ahead of you, you should be well-connected with everyone - up, down, and laterally.There is not a difference between networking and real relationship building.Don’t build your network when you need it, build it way before you need it.Tweetable Quotes:“The only things people can’t take away from you are your skills and relationships.” -Jordan“You don’t have to be Richard Branson to offer value to people.” -Travis“Your heart has to be in the right place, it’s never about making something happen for you, and then magic happens.” -Amy“The only way to build anything of significance in life is to build a team.” -JeffResources Mentioned:Visit Travis’ website at Buildyournetwork.coLearn more about mentorships and masterminds for FREE at freemmcourse.com/enrollDownload Meet Your Hero at travischappell.com/heroExplode Your Network at travischappell.com/explode

Learn the five elements of an effective message to busy people and find out how Travis has been able to connect with high-level people so quickly.Episode Highlights:The five elements of an effective message to busy people:1. Lead with value - mention something specific about them that impacted you.2. Give information - you have a limited amount of words, give quick, pertinent info and hyperlink to your site.3. Build a meaningful request - do not ask to “pick their brain.”4. Offer credibility - give social proof and have someone’s name or a brand name next to yours.5. “Thanks in advance” - This subconsciously creates a desire to finish the loop.3 Key Points:Always be specific when reaching out to someone busy, they will know if you just copied and pasted info from their site.Never ask someone if you can “pick their brain” or how you can add value, that just adds homework to their plate.Always say “thanks in advance” to prompt someone to respond.Tweetable Quotes:“DO NOT ask someone if you can pick their brain for a while, or ask them what you can do that could add value to them.” -Travis“Figure out a way to add value to someone and then just do it.” -Travis“Recognizable names, words, and friends of people stand out.” -Travis“Check out the free meet your hero course at my website to get all my value pieces on this topic.” -TravisResources Mentioned:Visit Travis’ website at https://www.travischappell.comGet your free mastermind course from Travis here: Freemmcourse.com/enrollEnroll in Travis’ VIP day experience.Learn how Travis books his guests on the show download Meet Your Hero for free at travischappell.com/heroExplode Your Network at travischappell.com/explodeDownload the Himalaya app free in iTunes and Google Play
