Networking Tips to catapult your business


"Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it with all your might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your personality. Be active, be energetic, be enthusastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your objective. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm." - Ralph Waldo Emerson, American essayist and poet.

Now that you understand the benefit of enthusiasm then please get entusiastic about our contining series of "3 tips" that should, if applied, help improve the value of your networking activity:

  • Use direct mail to generate more leads. Direct mail remains one of the most powerful lead generation tools. Its reach is wider and deeper than any other mediums. What's more, direct mail does not have "message filters" or format restrictions that e-mail has.
  • Offer a finders fee for referrals. If your margins can take it offer a set fee or a percentage off their next purchase from you when that referral becomes a paying customer.
  • Work the room at a networking event. It's too easy to stay talking with friends or colleges but make the effort to meet new people. Make sure that you mingle. Move around. Spend no more than 5-6 minutes talking with any one person. 

To get the best out of the above, again I return to my theme that one of the best ways of increasing your sales and profit is networking, why not request an invite to the next Derby Hub meeting.
