“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” – Maya Angelou
Would you like to build your business network but not sure how? You can become a magnet who attracts people and resources if you invest the time and energy necessary to develop a strong network of contacts. Here are our top tips for building your business network:
1. FOCUS ON THE RELATIONSHIP FIRST — Make the people you do business with a priority over the bottom line. Always have a “people first” mentality.
2. TAKE AN INTEREST — Recognize that people are more likely to do business with you if you have invested some time and interest in them. Show you care with words and actions.
3. MAKE DOING BUSINESS MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL — Build a network of partners to be on the lookout for new opportunities for you, and vice versa, you for them. Both of your networks will grow when business is mutually beneficial.
4. SHOW APPRECIATION — Never miss an opportunity to say things like “nice to meet you” or “thank you”. If you go out of your way to make others feel valued and appreciated, your business network will grow exponentially!
