Regular readers of my blog may be shocked when they read the title of this post – am I really suggesting that you should make relationship-building all about you?
Yes and no.
For the purposes of this post, let’s separate out the “you” and “them” of relationship-building. When you’re building relationships, the content has to be all about the other person:
- You let the other person do most of the talking, and you do most of the listening.
- You ask pointed questions about what is of interest to them.
- The content you share online and off is directed at what is most useful to your audience.

Like many people, I shop regularly at Target. It’s one of my favorite stores. So when I first heard news of the data breach they’d experienced, my heart sank. I am a Target Red cardholder, and had used my card to shop there three times during the time period identified.
And then I learned about the full scope of the attack – that it affected shoppers who used ANY credit card at Target during that time, and involved more than just information about their card numbers. I saw many people panic, and agreed that if I had used my debit or another card there, I would have been canceling it immediately.
