8 Ideas You Can Use Right Now to
Grow Your Business through Your Existing Relationships
You breeze into the networking event a few minutes early.
You ignore the food buffet and skip the mob at the bar because you see a good friend talking to someone you haven’t met.
Two hours later you realize you didn’t have time to eat or drink because you were too busy setting up sales meetings with 2 legitimate prospects and being introduced to 3 people who will be perfect additions to your referral network.
Business networking doesn’t happen by magic, though it can look that way to people who have been trained to prospect.
The more events they attend,
The more business cards they collect,
The more phone calls they make,
The more discouraged they get.
Because, like looking directly at an eclipse of the sun,
If you go to networking events to look for prospects,
You’re going to get burned.
The opportunities are hiding in the shadows.
Reflected in the conversations you start.
Projected on the relationships you develop.
It’s a different mindset.
Especially this time of year.
Because there’s an avalanche of opportunity for the people who can treat networking like, well, networking.
People who can start conversations naturally and authentically.
People who can follow up in a way that gets others excited to hear from them.
People who can develop trust with people who can send them referrals.
It’s not magic.
