Networking is a process. Networking is most effective if you network on a regular basis and not just when you are seeking a new job or need referrals for clients. When networking, whether you are using social media or face-to-face, it is about relationships. Focus on building relationships with like-minded individuals based on common interests and trust. The whole idea of professional networking is bringing together people to explore, create and act upon business opportunities. There is a wealth of knowledge, experience and new ideas that is gathered together in a networking group.
Key points to help you out:
• Be selective – find the few groups that would be mutually beneficial and build on those relationships.
• Be disciplined and build networking, social media and face-to-face meetings into your marketing plan placing time limitations on it.
• Remember, that it is by giving that you receive. Giving a referral or idea to someone else will naturally entire them to want to help you out in return.
