It seems everyone is talking about networking. And of course they are- it is ESSENTIAL for your business. Getting to meet new people, new businesses, and new opportunities.
There is an old adage that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. You can sit in your business and hope someone new walks through the door or the phone rings but what are you doing to instigate the action?
Of course marketing is key- social media, emails, ads, etc (we can help!) but getting out of your business and networking is important too. No one can sell our business like you can so start representing it to new audiences. Even if you are just attending one or two functions a month make time to grow your business.
Now, there are people who attend multiple networking groups and functions a week and to that I say “Kudos” but how are you getting any work done if you are always meeting new people? The goal is to meet one or two people at each event who have growth opportunities which you can follow up with properly. If you are not finding good leads it may not be the right group for your business.
