How to Grow your Business Through Networking
by Debbie Allen, CSP
One smart business owner can do a lot to make a business successful. But, put that together with other great business minds all sharing ideas and brainstorming … now you have … Networking Dynamics! Brainstorming and networking with other creative people is a powerful tool to create Success in your business. You can’t just go it alone in this competitive marketplace. You need the help and knowledge of other successful people to stay on top.
Networking is not an option to becoming successful … it is a Necessity! How can you possibly keep up to date and compete with the stiff competition without having that edge of additional knowledge and shared information? You can’t!
Wouldn’t you like to know how other business owners keep their staff happy and motivated? Wouldn’t you like to know how they handle their day-to-day problems and challenges? Sure you would, and all you have to do is ASK!
There is so much to learn, and we cannot do it all by ourselves. We need to share and network all the time. There are opportunities out there just waiting for you and all you have to do is to start looking for them. Every time you attend a tradeshow, convention or seminar those opportunities await you.
You can start by meeting other business owners during convention breaks and talk to everyone everywhere you go about your business. Don’t be shy, introduce yourself and start sharing. When you take the time to share, so will they. Exchange business cards and keep in touch with your new business friends. When you speak with other business owners that are not in your direct competition you can share and learn everything about one another’s business.
Networking is what made my business so successful. That is why I believe in it so strongly. When I opened my first retail store over 15 years ago, I had no knowledge of the industry. I just jumped in with both feet … wading through the trails and tribulations by myself. Until one day I was invited into a focused networking group of retailers. This focus group helped to create such incredible growth within my retail business.
My business increased over ten times in a short three-year period. I could not have done that without the help and support of this networking group. You can also create this type of opportunity for yourself. Meet with them on a regular basis and share your invaluable information. You will be amazed at how fast this will grow your business!
