Local Networking For Real Success
Are you networking offline and driving traffic to your online blog, personal website, business website or Facebook page?
Networking events can be a fabulous way to get yourself out in the local area to meet up with other like minded business people and Network Marketers. They are very open minded about business because they are in business!
Yes you will meet people who have a business already and they will most likely want you in theirs too or of course want you as a customer and that's ok!
First and formost present yourself as a professional. The best thing to do is walk into a networking event or meeting with the idea of helping and connecting other people. When you show a genuine concern for others and find out how you can help them they are going to be more open to what you do too!
Make it about THEM! Find out all about their business, what they do, why are they doing what they do and how's it going for them. What sort of clients or customers are they looking for?
Recently I had an opportunity to attend a Your Local City networking event here in Austin. First thing I did was make sure I had plenty of business cards. The entire room was buzzing with activity. People were very open to greeting and networking.
Here's a few networking tips!
When you get home be sure you put all of your business contacts in your contact data base and send them a nice to meet you card, or an email letting them know you enjoyed meeting and hearing more about their business and to please let you know how you can help them in the future and you look forward to seeing them again at a future event or whatever conversation or connection you may have had with a particular person.
Keep the focus on them while there because it's their booth!
