Why you should spend time networking

Networking online and in real life helps to build the presence of you and your business. The more visible you are, the more opportunities will come your way.

An effective networker doesn’t just show up at an event once but becomes part of a community. They show up over and over again and meet the same people multiple times proving that they are an authentic and valuable person in the community. Nobody wants to work with someone who shows up once, demands attention and is never seen again.

The secret to being an awesome networker is to combine real life networking with online networking. Why do one thing when you can do all the things!

Real life networking

Face-to-face networking can be a very powerful way to showcase you and your business and a great way to meet likeminded people. You can create an instant connection that can prove to be fruitful for both parties for years to come but you don’t need to wait for a ‘networking event’ to get started. Every interaction is an opportunity to network.

Online networking

Your social media channels are a powerful networking tool just waiting to be harnessed! You don’t need to wait for a ‘networking event’ and hope that the right people will be there. Opportunities to connect are so much easier with social media allowing us to create relationships with people like never before and grow our own networks.
