Networking is a great way to promote your business. It’s about building relationships and earning trust. When you join a networking group, it permits you to talk about your business on a consistent basis. You can mention monthly specials to help boost interest. When you are looking for a good networking group to join, you should keep these important factors in mind:
- One industry per group
- Diversity of industry within the group
- Workshops/speakers that teach skills to help you and your business grow.
One last important note to keep in mind. To have success in any networking group, you must attend on a regular basis. Preferably, weekly. This is the only way you will insure that people will remember you when they are out in the marketplace. Out of sight, out of mind.
