Skip the business wedding syndrome
Have you ever heard of the wedding syndrome? A couple meets. They fall in love. And they decide to get married. Then, they spend who knows how much money. And for a year or two or even more, they plan an extravagant wedding. It’s extraordinary. And usually those weddings are just breathtakingly beautiful and wonderful. But then something goes wrong.
The wedding syndrome strikes about 60% of married couples.
Yeah, that’s a sad percentage of failed marriages. And it makes me wonder (hopefully it makes you wonder, too) why that is. Why do so many couples plan so much for the wedding. But then, they spend no time planning for the relationship. And they have no ideas about what happens after the ceremony’s over.
Like when a baby comes into the picture. What are the plans for raising kids? Is there a likeminded value system?
Or how about when somebody decides they want to change careers? And the other one has to pick up the slack with working and bringing home the bacon.
And how about all the typical dynamics of the extended families?
Without planning, so many couples drift and fall apart.
And the same thing is true when you’re talking about business. Development programs. Business coaching. Everybody gets real hyped up on the marketing. One company can help you ramp up your search engine optimization and get in front of lots more potential clients and customers. Another company promises leads till the cows come home. And still another one insists social media marketing is IT.
Marketing is huge. I’m not gonna deny it. And we cover marketing in the RondaReady online business coach CRM system. But marketing isn’t everything. Because, what happens when the clients and customers start rolling in and you don’t have a solid foundation? Will you be ready to treat them so you can keep them for a lifetime? And I’m talking about lifetime Repeat business and lifetime Referral business.
A lot of money spent on “the wedding” and no real investment in the relationship.
And what happens? Your reputation starts to drop. Because you’re scattered and not servicing your clients and customers well. Sure, you’re making money. But do you have any time? No!
And when money and time are mutually exclusive…what do you really have? You certainly don’t have freedom. Do you? No.
So, that’s what sets the RondaReady System apart. We help you build for that relationship. Yes, we’re gonna have a nice “wedding” too. Of course. That’s important. And we all look forward to that. But it’s the relationship that counts for the long haul. You want things to last. Right? And we can help you and your communication to be so good that you’ll be head and shoulders above your competition.
Your repeat and referral business can increase dramatically. And when that happens, all the money you thought you’d have to spend GETTING business can now be spent on SERVING better.
Let me help you build those relationships better and faster. And you’ll be ready to nurture them for the long haul and…
