Networking tips to springboard your business


"When two or more people coordinate in a spirit of harmony and work towards a definite objective or purpose, they place themselves in position, through the alliance, to absorb power directly from the great storehouse of Infinite Intelligence." - Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich.

That sounds like the best benefits of networking to me. So to continue our series of "3 tips" that should, if applied, help improve the value of your networking activity:

  • Write a sales letter to get the phone ringing. A sales letter is one of the simplest and most effective direct mail tools available. It is one of the few types of advertising that people will read all the way through. To generate sales leads offer something free, such as a brochure, samples, demo, evaluation or information kit.
  • Continue to build a relationship with clients, customers and colleagues by anticipating their needs. If you want to create front-of-mind awareness, provide value and do it fast. Referrals love speed. The more action you take, the more referrals and introductions will happen. Actively share information that the other person finds useful to his or her life.
  • Ask your host to introduce you to people that you want to meet, or to get you started in a group where you know no one. If the networking event has a greeting committee or ambassadors, find out who they are and ask for help with introductions. Reach out to people standing by themselves and introduce people to each other.

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.
