October Networking Tips


“Defeat is not the worst of failures – Not to have tried is the true failure” – George E Woodbury, author, educator and poet.

To ensure that you do not fail come and try networking at The Derby Hub as we continue our series of “3 tips” that should, if applied, help improve the value of your networking activity:-

  • Motivate Prospects to respond. If you want a large volume of leads you must motivate prospects to take action. The offer of a sales presentation is not very enticing – actually it’s more likely to repel prospects. They want information, solutions, help, advice, samples, ideas, designs, savings, quality, service, support, assurances or guarantees. When you make your offer more enticing, more prospects will take action.
  • Referral rewards aren’t limited to hard cash. They can range from a free estimate, sample or consultation to a discount on future purchases or extra goods or services at no additional cost.
  • Arrive early to Networking Events. If you arrive early the number of people will be smaller and more manageable. This allows you to act as if you are the host.

To get the best out of the above tips, again I return to my theme that one of the best ways of increasing your sales and profit is networking and as such I would like to extend a personal invitation to you to attend the quickly growing Derby Hubgroup that meets every Wednesday between 12:30 noon and 14:30 at :-

It would be great if you could attend our next meeting. Come and have a look and if it suits you become part of an extremely successful format.
