Envision a community of individuals equipped with a wealth of industry experience, seeking to advance their business and share their acquired knowledge to benefit your business too. Imagine the possibilities of what they could achieve collectively!
Over the years I have attended multiple networking events and while they all vary in the manner in which they are carried out, they have all provided valuable opportunities to create new connections, further my knowledge on certain topics and even cultivate new client relationships. I am an avid believer in the power of networking both online and face to face. So much so that I actually host networking events in my local community and run a networking group online.
Networking has the power to boost your confidence, increase your business profile, cultivate leads and even foster new partnerships. It is often considered a key marketing strategy as it is a low cost way to improve business awareness simply by word of mouth and allocation of time within your schedule. Networking certainly has become even more accessible with the development of LinkedIn and various other social media forums.
It is most important to remember that you shouldn’t be focused on selling your products and services to your networking peers. Make sure you bring your business cards; but maximize the benefits by focusing your attention on building connections, sharing your knowledge and offering tips, referrals and leads thus creating mutually beneficial business relationships! Take time to consider what your business needs and who could fulfill them, thus creating partnerships within your networking community. Try to be proactive in approaching other members to accelerate your opportunities.
Are you keen to boost your networking opportunities? Simply type your location and "networking" into Google and you might be surprised by the number of events that are within your reach. Or boost your online presence with LinkedIn. There are countless opportunities are out there; you need to seek the ones that will be most suitable for you and your business.
