Networking is just another marketing tool….. but you have to know how to use it.
Don’t have time to network?Networking is just another tool to grow your business and as with any tools you have to know how work with it to take any or the full advantage of it.
So there is an ART to proper or good networking and it is more about making friends.
A – Awareness. They have heard of you and know who you are. So use the 60 seconds to your best advantage.
R – Relationships. Develop and build good relationships built on the foundation of respect. Find out about your BforB fellow member as a person, their hobbies, holidays and families. Follow through and use the 121 system.
T – Trust. This is when good business is done. Know, like and trust.
Some people have wrongly assumed that all they have to do is to join a group and somehow, miraculously, business would start flowing their way. If you think about it, treating group membership this way would be like going to a Builders Merchants, buying a trowel and expecting it to build a house for us.
Just like the trowel, Thrive membership in the group is only a tool. Use the BforB system and tools, without you being the driving force, it can do absolutely nothing to improve your businesses.
