The 5 Most Powerful Words

Posted by Dave Kerpen

The five most powerful words in business, and maybe in life: How can I help you? 
Of course, you can't just going around saying these words inauthentically. 
You have to say it when you can mean it, and most important, when you can and will be able to follow through.


"How can I help you?" is great when you're meeting a prospective customer. 
"How can I help you?" is great when talking to a current customer.
"How can I help you?" is perhaps best when you're talking to an employee or someone you manage.
We all have needs and wants, and when you tap into those needs and wants, and show people that you truly care, and that you are there to help, and not just to sell them something, or extract productivity out of them, it will go a long long way towards building a meaningful relationship. 
So, how can I help YOU? Maybe I can share a link for you to my 650 thousand followers on LinkedIn and Twitter? (if so, please email me the link you want me to share to
Or maybe I can help you by offering 15 minutes of free consulting time with me personally? (if so, please sign up for my office ours at - sorry about the wait!) 
Or maybe my company can help you with our powerful social media automation software? (if so, please sign up for a free demo and consultation at
Or maybe there's another way I can help you? (If so, please email me at, and I look forward to hearing from you!) 
As for how you can help me, if you're interested, and know a small business owner, doctor, dentist or lawyer who you think may benefit from Likeable Local's powerful social media software, simply go to and give us their contact info. If it's a fit and they sign up, you'll get $200 CASH! 
No matter what, my challenge to you for today is this: Say the words "How can I help you?" to at least one person before the end of the day. Mean it. Follow through. And watch how powerful those 5 words really are.
