Business Networking

Networking can bring many opportunities, both in terms of sales and referrals, and forming synergetic relationships with other likeminded businesses.  It presents a platform from which to establish and reinforce your company’s brand identity, and to make others aware of who you are and what you stand for.  At these events, you are the personification of your brand, so try to reflect it as well as you can.  If you want your business to be seen as professional, wear a suit or at the very least a shirt and jacket.  Always have business cards with you, and don’t expect to get results from Event 1.  Networking is like any other relationship – it takes time and persistence to reap dividends.
