A Key to Effective Networking

Do you ever wonder why some people have great success in networking and
others just simply say “it didn’t work for me”?

A key component to becoming an effective networker is as simple as this: show
up early and stay late.

When you arrive early at a networking event you are there to greet and
introduce yourself to others as they arrive.  This helps maximize exposure and
gives you extra time to work on “relationship building”.  We all know that
people like to do business with people they know, like, and trust.  Taking the
time to talk to others and learn about them and their business is the first step
to building that relationship.  The same is true of staying after the event…you
can stay to talk with those you haven’t had an opportunity to meet yet and to
continue conversations you had with those you met before the event.

Simple….and effective!

Now that you know one major key to networking successfully, make sure you attend our upcoming event on November 7th, 2011 at 11AM at Iguana Mack’s!  The topic is “Power Phrases- Words that Sell” so you do not miss it! Check out the “Events” link above for more details.
