Networking: a key to your success in business

without comments

It seems that more and more business people are doing it! Getting out there and meeting people to build their network and to grow their business. kIt is a well known fact that if you are looking for a job, the fastest and most efficient way of landing one is by networking.

When it comes to networking, you can begin with Internet sites such as LinkedIn,  Facebook, MySpace. But, these new avenues can’t replace genuine ‘face-time’, where you choose your venue and you meet people, show interest and handout your business cards. Meeting people in person remains the best way to network. That’s why organizations such as BNI and CEO Space work so well. It is fundamentally about creating rapport with other people. Hit it off with someone else, and your chances of hitting a homerun for your business skyrocket. Getting involved, without being self-serving, in an authentic way is really a key to success. The good old proven method of you “Scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours” works more than ever. Learning to focus on the other person; getting interested in them and actively listening to them are invaluable ways of creating the rapport which will pay big dividends for all in this win-win situation.
