Networking – It’s Important!

Networking opportunities are everywhere. Don’t let them pass you by.


1. Recognize that there is more to networking than greeting people. Develop a step-by-step plan for how you’ll build relationships and how you can effectively tell your story. Don’t forget your 30 second commercial to tell your story.


2. Zero in on specific groups of people. Who are the ideal prospects for your business? Do they live nearby? What activities do they participate in? Try networking groups meetings. For those of us in lease purchasing we network with real estate agents, accountants, financial planners, and a multitude of others.


3. Determine where you’ll be most likely to find your ideal prospects. Do they belong to specific organizations or associations? Do they frequent particular events, performances or recreational facilities? Again, for those of us in lease purchasing, investors, buyers and sellers are just the beginning.


4. Identify organizations, events, professional groups and social clubs whose members meet your profile characteristics, and get involved. Get to know people, and let them know what you do. Volunteer for committees, attend conferences, and maximize opportunities that might spin off from the formal sessions. For those of you in lease purchasing, and even other businesses, become an expert. Give seminars, speeches, write articles. Become involved and get your name out there.


5. Work on your ability to make small talk. Have some prepared topics in mind
