5 Tips That Make a Good Business Networker...

Dave Young,IBOToolbox,Business Networker

 

The below 5 Tips I truly believe makes a good business networker and this is why we read OUR MISSION statement every meeting;

1) Support other members by listening and sharing your experiences, knowledge and skills.

Listening:

One of our company values is listening. If you listen, you will learn, and let’s be honest, people love to talk about themselves. If you feel you can help someone, why not offer your experience in a caring way? I say to people ‘we all have tools to our trade. When you come to our meetings, share your tools - let’s help others get the job done faster and better’.

Build Relationships:

2) Build professional relationships, friendships and synergies with other members

Everyone knows networking is about relationships. If you get pulled up for speeding it would be fair to say you have a relationship with the a policeman, however if you had a friendship with them you may get out of the ticket! Friendships are stronger and take longer to develop.

Once friendships are built and people know you and your business, well they will stick their neck out for you. They’ll talk to their friends about your products or services and even better you maybe able to form synergies and work together with like-mind businesses.

Right Connection:

3) Connect the right person with the right opportunity by giving quality recommendations

I always say to people I don’t want our company to be known as just a referral company. It’s not about getting, it is about giving! However when you get a referral make sure you look after it!! If I give someone a lead and it gets followed up I will refer again, ladies and gentlemen it’s not rocket science. I also say don’t feel you need to use other members in the group - it is all about connecting the right person for the job. However if you don’t know someone well enough to refer them, get to know them better.

Participation

4) Participate in weekly meetings, collaborate together and invite visitors to your group

This is an interesting one… have a voice - become part of the group. Give hugs and handshakes, ask questions and listen to the answer. Put your business networking meeting in your calendar and block it out - make it part of your business routine. To be a good networker you need to be regular at meetings - if you come once a fortnight and just hand out your business cards, it will not work for you nor will it work for anyone else.

Smile:

5) Bring a smile and a sense of humour plus a little love to your meetings.

Be relaxed! Work on your personal development, practice your engagement with others. I am always working at being a better version of myself. We all need to adjust our thinking sometimes and the way we react to certain things that happen.

Love: we are not a dating agency, however not saying it has not happened! The love we are talking about is brotherly and sisterly love where you look out and care for one another just like you would for a family member.

In conclusion I would like to leave you with what I feel the two biggest misconceptions to business networking!

It's not about industries. Did you know that hogging your industry limits the growth of your business family? It’s not if you are compatible with all the other members, it's how you deal with incompatibilities. I’m a true believer in that I don’t have any competition - we work with other business networking companies who share similar values.


And the last misconception… people often asked me how many are going to be there? My reply is always the same: just you and me. However I talk to 100-300 people each week! Once I get to know you and understand your business I could become your biggest advertisement. A real-time walking, always talking billboard. Others at our meetings have the same attitude, quick tip you never truly know who you are talking to or who they are connected to, it is never about numbers.

P.S. If you like this article, please leave a comment, as that will give me more encourage to publish more. Share and inspire. Thank you.
