10 Tips For Successful Networking.

10 Tips for successful networking. 1. Have all the tools to network successfully. If you are at a networking event you can have a clearly displayed informative name badge. Include business cards, brochures about your business and consider taking business cards of associates you can refer. When networking online you need to make all these things available on your website. The name badge is the about me page, your brochures are your content and your contact page is your business card. 2. Set a goal for the number of people you’ll meet. This is necessary to effectively manage your time. This is useful in events where several different businesses are represented, you will want to make sure you network with the right people and for a reasonable time to make the connection productive. It helps to find out beforehand what the attendance is likely to be at the event. 3. Act like a host, not a guest. Volunteer to help greet people. If you see visitors sitting, introduce yourself and ask if they would like to meet others. Help people with questions about the event and give directions to the other parts of the venue such as the toilets etc. 4. Listen and ask questions. A good networker listens first and only after learning what the other person does, tell them what you do. Be specific but brief. Don’t assume they know your business. Remember your goal and the other person will probably have a goal too. 5. Don’t try to sell or close a sale. Networking is about developing relationships. Meeting people at events or online should be the beginning of a relationship. This is just as important online too. In other words, don't spam the people you meet. Instead of sending your links and offers talk to people and ask about their businesses. Offer them help and be genuinely interested in them. Trying to sell will be the end of it. 6. Give referrals whenever possible. A good networker believes in “Givers Gain” “What You Give Is What You Get” They believe, if I help you, you’ll help me and we will both do better because of it. Be genuinely interested in helping, if you can’t give a referral offer some information that might interest them. 7. Exchange business cards. Ask each person for a card for yourself, and some others to pass on to other people you meet or know is interested in their business. 8. Manage your time efficiently. You know your goal, be careful not to spend too long with any one person. If you meet someone whom you would like to speak more arrange an appointment to meet at a later date. Don’t spend your time with friends, after all you see each other regularly already or you live close by. 9. Write notes. Write notes on the backs of the business cards you collect or in a notebook. Write anything that will remind you about the person, names and details of your conversation. 10. Follow up. You can do everything in the other 9 tips but it won’t guarantee your success. You will have wasted your time if you don’t do this last step. This is especially true and just as important, in fact more important online. Call each person you have met and introduce yourself again. Be sure you have met any promises you have made. Happy networking. My website.
