Relationships, marketing and rainmaking

You will find some simple truths in this blog posting, Rain Making by Deduction, from Ford Harding. His basic premise: Relationships are the key to rainmaking success, and successful relationship development (and maintenance) is found in both the quality and quantity of your relationships. He also asserts you can't build a relationship without personal contact.

For marketing, he writes:

Marketing Properties

  1. The goal of marketing is to help you meet people and develop relationships with them (by giving you reasons to contact them).
  2. Marketing efforts that don’t do one of these two things are probably not worth the investment.
Good advice, indeed.
