5 Effective Ways To Get More From Your Business Networking

Either you run the day or the day runs you.
Jim Rohn

Take Charge of Your Networking Today!

The networking of your business should never be outsourced to an outside
agency.

To gain lasting value from your business networking, you need to develop
the skills in-house.

The range of networking responsibilities include public relations,
relationship management, advertising, marketing, and departmental
collaboration. Two of the most powerful campaigns you need to focus on are
referral strategies and word-of-mouth advertising.

Here are 5 ways to start taking charge of your networking campaigns:

1. Expand Your Networking with Events

The key to getting the word out about your business is to get involved with
events and organisations where you can develop stronger business
relationships.

Make it a point to attend in at least two networking events every month.
Once you attend these meetings, you have to make a commitment to follow up
with anyone that you met at these seminars. Networking is vital for growing
your customer base, and the biggest mistake you can make as far as
networking is not following up after the meetings are over. This one area
could have a huge positive effect on your business.

2. Build Relationships Consistently

In order to effectively grow your base, you need to reach out to those
people that you met at least twice a week.

It might seem like a lot to make two calls each to every person you
connected with, but in order to grow and maintain these relationships you
have to be willing to put in the time. If you are too busy to stay in touch
with these contacts, how can you possibly expect that relationship to grow?

Make time each week to make these personal calls, regardless how short they
might be. These calls will help to grow the relationship and strengthen the
bond in this business relationship.

3. Use Cards To Connect in a Personal Way

During the course of the year, you need to stay in touch with these
contacts in other ways. If you were lucky enough to get their birthday,
send out a card in the mail.

Send postcards to just say you are thinking about them. Mail greeting cards
for the holidays, and don't just do like everyone else and hit the big
holidays. Mix it up a little and really grab their attention by sending out
a little card for Halloween, Labor Day, Anzac Day, and Christmas! If you
have fallen out of contact with certain clients, try to reconnect by
sending them postcards with an offer to reconnect in the near future.

4. Grow & Maintain Your Database

As the person in charge of networking, you need to guard your database of
contacts like it was gold.

This database is your key to connecting with all these individuals.

Whether you have all the information in a binder, postcards, or an online
program, it must be something you can access easily and that is well
organized. If need to reach out to an individual quickly, these contacts
need to be organized in a way that is optimised. A good database management
software can explode your referral system. Here you can lists contacts that
are connected to your contacts, to help you reach people higher up on the
business ladder.

5. Learn the Power of Thank You

The power of the thank you cannot be understated.

If someone took the time to refer you to a client, they do assume you are
grateful. That should not be taken for granted. You need to make an effort
to thank them in a unique way.

Understand that this new customer could generate a significant amount of
money for your business, the least you can do is find time to thank the
referral with more than a simple email.

This person has feelings just like everyone else, and by taking the time to
acknowledge what they did for you, you give them reason to want to do it
again in the future. If they feel like their efforts made an impact and
they were rewarded for it, they are more likely to help you more in the
future.

The thank you is the simplest thing to do, but it will have the biggest
overall impact long-term in your marketing efforts. 

These simple networking tips are not too difficult to implement. If you set
aside a small amount of time each week you can easily pull off the job as
head networker in your company.

How Storytelling can Create Brand value for your Business 

How Storytelling can Create Brand value for your Business  | Technology in Business Today | Scoop.it
Having a compelling story gives a business the ability to generate substantial word-of-mouth recognition and brand awareness. Stories that add color and character to a business resonate with customers at a deeper level, encouraging them to evangelize on behalf of the company in retelling the story. “A business needs to have a story behind it,” said serial entrepreneur Ken Deckinger during a recent Money Talk interview. “If you can have people selling your business for you, that only helps you. And you need a story to do that.” Deckinger, who recently co-founded Jess, Meet Ken, knows what he’s talking about. Deckinger’s latest venture is an online dating site where women can post the profile of a male friend, relative or even a former boyfriend. His business model is based on his own life story and the way he met his wife, Jessica. His best friend Adele posted his profile online. Jessica saw the post and contacted Adele. The women chatted and then Adele introduced Jessica to Ken. With that a marriage was born, along with it the idea behind Jess, Meet Ken. Deckinger founded the online service after observing the extent to which women communicate with other women about available men with good qualities. Deckinger [...]
