How to Succeed in Business Networking
Business networking is the coming together of individuals or groups which share similar ideologies in the manner in which they conduct activities. Here, each group takes the role of building other businesses rather than relying on other commercial channels of advertisement and reaching out to the public at large. Through their meetings from time to time, members exchange mushrooming ideas and opinions that would in the end enhance the growth of all member businesses, a practice that continues before and after such meetings. Such kind of a network will always be propagated online or via physical meetings, and is favorable to both upcoming business communities and already advanced business communities. The walk and talk aspects of this kind of dealing become the marketing tools for the members. Success could be guaranteed by taking in to consideration the guidelines discussed below.
First and foremost, success here is two way traffic! It is about giving and receiving honest and rightful ideas. It is important to note that the information shared is for the common good of the groups involved to promote their business engagements. As such, there is need to purpose to share only that which is factual, that which will be meaningful and helpful in sustaining the relationships and guarantee growth in the other. You may have of the old adage that says ‘tell me who your friends are and I will tell you who you are’. Establishing your membership in any one of these cycles should be well informed by what it is that you seek. Ultimately, the groups thus targeted should bear the features that would directly benefit your business. You need to consider what learning you anticipate to get and the kind of relationship you are likely to develop, since membership is not just for the sake of it but rather for reasonable activities. In addition, it would be quite in order to consider giving out as much of your services as possible, rather than simply seeking to be on the receiving end. Volunteering your services at any level of the broader group is not only appealing to the members but also a kind gesture in appreciating their contribution to your own growth. It would also be ideal to carry on with this positive spirit of interaction outside the meetings that could be more often than not appear formal. Simply exchanging contacts, especially email addresses or phone numbers, would indeed indicate that you interest is great, and that your focus is not short lived. It would go a long way if members took a moment from their busy schedules and keep in touch with other, in an endeavor to establish how they are fairing on and perhaps give a word of inspiration. Although silence is believed to be golden, it is quite uncalled for in such forums. At such opportunities, it is very important that each member seeks to express himself very freely on one’s own behalf or on behalf of the organization thereby represented. By so doing, members will easily understand you and the interactions will be much more meaningful and well informed. Let inquiries be made and responses be as prompt as possible. It will further be in good faith to remain relevant to the group, especially given that you are all seeking the welfare of each other. Let the members get to know that your business ideas are viable, and that they can always turn to you to seek your opinion and guidance. Even so, all of you should endeavor to compare and contrast your groups to others.
