What Is Networking? — Sometimes We Need A Reminder
To many networking seems like a daunting process. Wht they don’t realize is that each one of us is networking every dy. When you ask your friend who cuts their hair or what dentist he/she sees – you’re networking
Business to business networking, sometimes referred to as peer to peer networking is all about making contacts and meeting new people that can benefit from your product or service. It is also about meeting new people that offer a product or service that you can benefit from using.
It’s a two way street with a focus on building relationships
As you can tell, I believe that the process of networking is much more than just passing out business cards. It’s about sharing and caring. Only when you show a genuine interest in others, can you gain access to information, solve problems, avert disasters and achieve goals. as well as gain quality referrals.
With this focus on relationships, it’s important to remember that networking isn’t something that brings immediate gratification. It’s about nurturing lasting friendships and solid business relationships that help you to truly know the person you are dealing with. Once you achieve a certain level of comfort,you will feel confident in giving them qualified referrals and they’ll feel the same way.
