The Big Time

This is the year your business hits the big time. After all, your firm is destined to become a household name. Well, that is what could happen, it’s just a matter of getting the word outHow? You could pay large sums for print or radio advertising. You could plaster social media with meme after meme. Or you could just hit the streets and TELL people about your business. That is the point of Business Networking. After all, you are the best salesperson for your company. Who else has that kind of passion for what you do?

What is Business Networking?

It’s definitely more than just attending weekly business mixers, shaking hands and collecting cards like a Pokémon Go addict. Business networking is a means to meet other like-minded entrepreneurs and business professionals. These are people like you, who are visiting groups to form genuine and valuable relationships for the sake of increasing their business exposure. If you manage to form those close connections you will have recruited a free advertising and sales force. You have a great product or service, you just need people to know about it. 

What About Making Sales?

Trying to make sales in a business networking event is like fishing, you may hook one or two, but the vast majority slip away into the depths. Never to be seen again. On the other hand, approaching networking events and mixers like a fish whisperer. You want to get to know the fish and its habits. Where it hangs out with other fish, maybe bigger fish. Business Networking should be viewed as an advertising tool, not a cash register. If you get the word out about yourself and your firm and actually have a good product or service, the sales will come.
