The Importance of Networking
Networking is vital for all businesses, whether you're a start-up, medium or large organisation, you'll always have the duty to meet more people. As human beings we are blessed with different skill sets and we each specialise in different areas, making a network of us a powerful tool to contribute towards business growth.
1: Step out of your comfort zone.
Networking means that you need to step out of your comfort zone and introduce yourself to strangers. At first this can seem daunting, but once you have a 30 second pitch about yourself and what you do, you'll have an opening line which you'll become more familiar with as time goes on.
2. Meet New people.
Often in business we need to pull in an extra pair of hands to help complete our job. For example, we may need a Graphic Designer, Printer, Accountant etc, and you may not have the money, time or resources to source your ideal company to work with. With Networking, you can meet new people who can benefit your business in the long run.
3. Get Content for Social Media.
Networking may seem corporate and boring, but it's actually really fun and most of us want to show our online network how much fun we're having! The new photos help with our brand profile and provide us with content for social media.
4. Generate Sales.
You must of heard the saying 'Your Network is your Net Worth?'. It's so true! Here's another one for you... 'It's not what you know, it's who you know.'...
The more people you meet, the more recommendations you can get through Word of mouth Marketing. You can also build strong relationships with these professionals to collaborate on future projects.
Working on your personal development, growing your network, uploading exciting content to social media and eventually making money is all the reasoning you need to understand why you should attend the next Diamonds & Deals Networking Event.
