Trading is a big part of the fun of socializing online.
But you’re also responsible for making sure that your friends are happy.
It’s an important task.
Here are the best ways to get your friends on board.1.
Be authentic and honest.
It might not seem like it at first, but being authentic and genuine can really make or break your relationship.
People will naturally gravitate toward those who are more open and honest with themselves.
This makes you a good recruiter for your friends.2.
Don’t pretend to be someone you’re not.
The next time someone asks you for advice, tell them you’re just an idiot and that you’re going to do what you think is best.3.
Be polite and helpful.
The first thing you should do if someone asks for advice is not insult them.
Instead, ask them to give you a friendly, professional response, such as “Hey, I’m not that type of guy, but you’re awesome.
I’m going to give that a shot.”
If they respond by saying they have a great idea, then they’re going through a process of validation, which helps them get your support.4.
Take the time to answer questions.
If you’re a stranger and someone asks if you want to trade, you need to be open and transparent.
Ask them for details about the trade, ask if you can trade for them, and then give a clear and detailed answer.5.
Ask for a trade.
If someone asks what you’re doing, don’t be shy and say “I’m going trade my house and get some money.”
This shows that you want the trade to happen.6.
Be careful with how you respond.
Don´t make it sound like you’re being a jerk.
If they say you’re crazy, then you know you’re making it sound worse.
But if they say “well, I just think I’d like to trade my car” then it shows that they understand your reasoning.
If the other person is really confused and is wondering what you did, then don’t tell them it’s your job to be a good friend and a good trading partner.7.
Use a trade-tracking app.
I recommend checking out Trade Tracker.
It allows you to view your trading history, see who’s been trading with you, and see who was your friend the first time they saw you.
It also shows you your trading activity as well as what other people are trading with.8.
Try different ways to trade.
Try trading with a friend who is different from you, but is still trading with the same people.
Maybe they’re a tech blogger, or a musician, or maybe they’re an engineer who wants to learn how to make their own products.
Maybe you trade on your own, and that’s okay too.
Find a way to get into your friend’s good graces without making it seem like you are the bad guy.9.
Don�t expect them to make it easy for you.
Be a good negotiator and show that you value their opinion and friendship.
And be honest with yourself.
If something feels too good to be true, it probably is.
