10 Networking Tips: The Art of Building Business Relationships

10 Networking Tips: The Art of Building Business Relationships | Small business management | Scoop.it

In our rush to succeed in this spirited marketplace, it appears that consumers, vendors, employees, business colleagues, etc. have been reduced to mere account numbers, projects to be completed, Twitter followers, Facebook friends and email addresses. Yet, no matter how advanced the technology, business success is still dependent upon three key factors: 

 

Network – who you know and who knows you

Reputation – what others know and think about you

Relationships – how well others know you

New campaign for Maxwell House coffee is far from ’epic’ – and that’s why it works so well!

New campaign for Maxwell House coffee is far from ’epic’ – and that’s why it works so well! | Small business management | Scoop.it
Nothing is more pleasant than waking to a cup of good coffee. Moving forward, for me at least, this has to be Maxwell House, given the exceptional job I think it's agency Wieden and Kennedy has done for it. http://youtu.be/yQl2V11cUw0   What is refreshing about the new Maxwell House campaign is its honesty. We all know that packaged coffee cannot possibly be as good as a cup made fresh by a barista. The laws of physics get in the way. Combine the quality of the grind, and its age, with the instability of temperature and pressure – that only a…

Orlando 's curator insight, January 9, 2013 12:38 PM

I have always been terrible when I managed my time. I never keep track of what I need to do, I get distracted easily, I put assignments of until the last minute, and when I am too stressed I start worrying more about the tasks I need to complete and end up not doing anything. I have to organize my time after school so I actually start studying and get assignments done. I can make a list of assignments that I have every week so I can see a visual representation of everything I need to do. I have to isolate myself when working on something time consuming because I usually look for every little distraction to put off assignments. I have to start every day with the hardest assignment so I can have something accomplished and not worry about a difficult assignment while doing a different assignment. I have to avoid talking to my friends because I waste a lot of my time looking for distractions. I have to organize my room because my desk at home is never organized and I find many distractions and end up not working on anything.

6 Easy Steps to Being a Master Networker All of the Time

6 Easy Steps to Being a Master Networker All of the Time | Small business management | Scoop.it

When there’s only so much time in the day, it’s easy to overlook the value of building and maintaining your professional relationships. But being stressed and busy is no excuse. Relationships take effort, of course, but throughout my career, I’ve constantly been reminded that my success is dependent on the strength of my network. You really can’t do it all alone!

 

Thankfully, I’ve discovered that the simplest tricks — tricks you’ve heard before, but aren’t truly putting into practice — have an enormous impact on relationship building. They don’t take a lot of effort, but they do take commitment. That said, even taking these six simple steps can help you prioritize relationships in your life almost immediately.

You can lead a horse to water… but conversion optimisation will increase its likelihood of drinking

You can lead a horse to water… but conversion optimisation will increase its likelihood of drinking | Small business management | Scoop.it
Digital marketers are often short sighted, focusing too much effort on their external marketing campaigns and not enough on their digital assets. This leads to an ineffective use of marketing budgets and marketers end up paying too high a premium for a new customer. Sure, external marketing can drive potential customers to your website, but once they’re there, it is up to your digital assets, CRM system and sales team to convert them to paying customers. A marketing campaign can lead a horse to water, but can’t make it drink. If you could increase your onsite conversion rate by even…
