If you want to gain new clients and build a sustainable business, then get out of your office and start NETWORKING.
What can networking do for you?
- Generate referrals and business leads.
- Make connections with like-minded business people.
- Raise your, and your business, profile.
- Create friendships.
- Give and take free advice from other business people.
Where do you start? Look for events where business people gather. The most logical place to do this is to join the Chamber of Commerce. They have multiple networking and educational events each month at a wide variety of locations and topics. Most of their events are free and well worth the small yearly membership fee they charge.
Join a service club or business group. Meeting with the same people month after month helps build your networks and, you make lots of new friends along the way. If people don’t know you, are they not apt to buy from you. People buy, and do business with, people they know.
Networking is one of the easy and fun ways to grow a sustainable business. You can build a network of friends and colleagues that will always be there, even in the lean times. So get out of your office and network your butt off.
It will pay dividends – GUARANTEED.
