So try not to get too intimidated with the process of relationship building and prospecting because it's something that takes time and never takes place over night. People must first get to know you, build a rapport with you, then they trust you and then that's when they make the decision to do business with you.

If you are truly serious about building your business then you'll have to commit to implementing these actions into your activities on a daily basis. Building a successful online business does take time, effort, and a bit of patience. Always remember, you are in business for the long haul so if you learn this important step you business is guaranteed to prosper for years to come!
