As a Baptist pastor’s son growing up in a small border town between India and Burma, I learned very early on about the benefits of long-term relationships.
You see, we never had enough money. So, my mum would always shop at a particular store where she could take anything on credit.
The store owners and my mum had a very close relationship that was built over a long period of time. It was based on trust and mutual benefit. We get stuffs we need on credit any time; the shop owners get paid regularly.
Even when returning to the town after years from elsewhere, we would still shop at the same store.
The last time I visited the town, I went and introduced myself (after almost 10 years’ gap) to the shop-owners and spent some time speaking with the store owners (they are getting old now, though). They are more like our family friends than just shop-owners in the neighbourhood.
• Long-term relationships are built in time.
• Long-term relationships are built on trust and mutual respect.
• Long-term relationships are built on constant and frequent communication.
• Long-term relationships are built on mutual benefit.
One of the many defects I see with bidding sites is there’s no scope or chance of building any kind of relationships with your clients and customers.
Can you even claim them as your own clients and customers in the first place? Their contacts and information are all owned and controlled by the site.
