Being a member of Thrive has opened up several business opportunities and helped me to expand my network of professional contacts, many of whom have become friends. I’ve been impressed by how several aspects of Thrive has helped change and shape my business.
Social media changes get irritating but you need to export your contacts out of LinkedIn from time to time
All social media changes constantly, the platform I currently like best for B2B is LinkedIn, but you have to keep on top of all their changes.
Thanks to technology, new contacts are only a click away, but if you are starting up a new business or taking your business to the next level, developing actual contacts and new business leads can be the most daunting aspect of growing a business.
I was educated with the saying ‘that turnover is vanity and profit is sanity’ and I believe that this is true when it comes to the size of your networking group, to me results rather than size, is an indicator of a good network.
Networking is considered one of the most cost-effective and powerful ways to generate new business and it’s no secret that making connections and good quality contacts are among the way that top business leaders acquire new leads and sales, then why do so many business people struggle when it comes to making connections and networking?
