Create A Win Win Situation In Your Business

win win situationThere is a great way to get more success in your lead generation and business building efforts; that’s to create a win win situation. Essentially, what you want to achieve is a scenario where both you AND your prospect are in a winning situation. How do we do that? Like this…….

Creating Your Win Win Situation

What I’m going to do is to tell you a story of how I have used this in several situations when I had my own electrical contracting business. What this does is prove that it’s possible to do this for ANY business and I have a specific case in mind where there was a definite win win situation.

I had a call from someone who wanted to change the electrical installation in his home to include extra points and lighting in a reconstruction of a bedroom. The customer was looking to change things around, but was disturbed to find out from another contractor that the installation required a rewire. When I went to look at the job, I thought it may be extreme to rewire the property and suggested an inspection and a routine of improvements related to the findings of the test.

The customer agreed that the inspection route was a good one and requested that I get on with the work. The outcome was as I suspected it would be. I could make some changes to the installation satisfactorily and update things at the same time, but only adjustments would be required and some fault finding. Subsequently I got work, a profit and further work from the customer. He had saved a potential cost of an extra couple of thousand. A true win win situation for both of us. I got more work and the customer got what he wanted and had a safe installation without the massive upheaval that was expected. From the money he saved he got some essential work done on his roof, so the benefit of my suggestion gave him a lot more than was expected.

Providing value that is of mutual benefit is key to any win win situation. This can be applied to all kinds of things in business, including online and network marketing too.

Win Win Situation As Opposed To Win – Lose Situation

When working in network or online marketing you may be more likely to come across a situation where someone will ask you to help them with setting up something so they can progress. They see you as a valuable resource and a leader. They may be with you in a particular program, but with someone else in a different program for the task they wish to perform.

So, you could help them and get the task done, but is this a good thing to do? In a business sense, no way, but you may do it because you want to help others to succeed. The problem with this scenario is that the person who wants the help will be in a win situation, but you, the helper will be in a lose situation. Should the person be in your team, then the difference is obvious; you will both benefit from the work done.

The lesson to be learned is that you want to create a win win situation and you won’t do this WITHOUT thinking like a business person. Yes, you want to help others, but in the same instance you NEED to be making money from what you do however small the amount. Benefits work BOTH ways.

Consider this in developing any kind of win win situation in your business and your team. You want to be attractive to prospects, but also you need to be making money from your work like everyone you help want to make money from their work too.

To The future,

  • Hi Barrie,

    I love the way you offered solution to your customer. You created a real win win situation. At many times, customer just want to negotiate a better price and the seller just need to do a little more work. That is the truth !

    As much as I can, when a customer bargain for a lower price, I will usually recommend something which is at slightly higher price but with more values to make him/her satisfies that he/she is spending on something which value for the money. This is also to avoid price war.

    Thank you for sharing great tip on your post. I look forward to read more from you.

    Cheers

    • It’s all about finding to solutions to problems and helping out the customer. i have done a lot of this in the past. It’s not all about money, but a small profit often from repeat custom is better than just one profit and nothing following up from that.
      Thank you for your input Pearly, I appreciate it

  • I think, to help each other in online business is a great way to bring your business to a new level. The thing is, you have to build a relationship with that person so you really can trust them.

    Speak soon.

    • What I meant by not a good thing is that the win win is when you both win. If you’re in different teams and you help the other person succeed in something you’re not involved in they win, you lose, unless you have charged them of course. That’s not the real point because I would help others anyway, but we are in business and should benefit from the work we do.

  • Business people should not only thing about profit but also think about the value in the services that the customers get. Mutually beneficial relationships can create repeat customes and referrals.
