Your 3 Free Networking Tips


Everything you want is just outside your comfort zone." - Robert Allane co-author of "The One Minute Millionaire

If this is true then you must push yourself outside your comfort zone regularly to achieve in business. To a lot of people Networking is outside their comfort zone so to help you please find below this weeks three networking tips, follow these to gain more business from existing customers and to convert more prospects into customers:-

  • To Increase the Quality of your leads. Offer your catalogue, brochure, or other literature for free. Don't make prospects answer lots questions about themselves - people are wary about disclosing too much information. Make it as easy and cost-effective as possible for prospects to respond - for instance, by mailing them stamped reply cards or providing a free phone number.

  • Reward Customers for Referrals. People lay their reputation on the line when they recommend a product or service. Reward them for doing it. Offer incentives for referrals that turn into business. You could reward them for just giving you a name. This isn't a gimmick just an honest appreciation and recognition of those people who have helped you. They've taken time from their schedules to do you a favour - reward that behaviour. Remember people remember rewards.

  • Research the people who'll be at a networking event.Try to get hold of a list of people who will be at the event and look them up. Identify your targets so that you can bring some focus to your networking. (Derby Hub does this for you in their agenda - come and check it out).

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.
