I subscribe to many of Ivan Misners information, but I got this article today from his blog.  I’ve said it once and I’ll say it a million more times, it does NOT matter what business somebody else’s is in, you NEVER know who they know until you get to know them.



Why You Should Network

Networking is the one of the most effective inexpensive advertising out there.  By networking with other like minded business professionals you begin to build a relationship which can lead to 250 new relations and more.  This form of advertising is not something that is easy nor something that comes over night.  People will do business with those they KNOW, LIKE and TRUST.  As you get to “know” the person you will begin to build a relationship and hopefully they will like you.  Once a bond is formed they will soon begin to trust you and send business to you.  This process varies on your type of business.  Those businesses that are product based tend to get referrals faster than those with service based businesses and either way can take up to 12-18 months to pay off. 

Why it is important to network with a diverse networking group

There are two types of businesses-Brick and Mortar, those with a public building/store and those that are home based (aka Direct Sellers, Network Marketers).  Did you know that it is EXTREMELY beneficial to network with both? 

 Brick and Mortar:  These types of businesses have several people walking through their doors everyday.  With their permission, you could display your flyer/brochure/business cards/catalogs for their potential clients to see and perhaps even pass along to their friends/family.  This is in addition to the people that owner may already know.

 Direct Sellers/Network Marketers:  These types of business people go into several new homes a week.  Lets take for example that Susie has 3 home shows booked for this week and her show attendance averages 15-20 people, 3 x 15-20 = 30-60 new people each week.  This is in addition to the people that Susie already knows. 

 So come check out Women In Networking and see what we have to offer you.
