5 Keys to Doubling Your Networking Results

Are you frustrated with the results you’ve been seeing from traditional live networking events? Well, did you know if you run a strong online campaign that will help you convert more prospects who you meet offline?  That way, the people you do meet face to face at live networking events have many ways to stay connected with you and to learn more about your area of expertise.

Here are 5 key ways to help you double your networking results:

1.) Make sure you’re networking with your target market or referral partners

If you want to double your networking results, the first thing to check is to make sure you’re not fishing in the wrong pond! There are hundreds of different networking events and opportunities you could spend your time attending. But, that does not mean that they are necessarily the right crowds for you.

Winning the Battle of the Mind: Your Mission Critical Business Growth Plan

Your Mission Critical Business Growth Plan

There are many roadblocks and obstacles that stand between you and success. Running a business isn’t easy, but one thing that is for certain is that defeating your demons and overcoming those gremlins that stand in your way can be the hardest part of growing a business.

As entrepreneurs we expect to write out our business growth plan to include things like our marketing strategy, our customer service strategy, our cash flow strategy and our organizational development strategy. These are all important pieces to have in our business growth plans. However, in 100% of all the strategic plans I review from small business owners to CEO’s of mid-size companies, there is a chapter missing that in my opinion, is mission critical to have in place.

Overnight Success is a Myth

Imagine for a moment the struggle and doubt the Wright brothers faced as they made attempt after attempt to create a “flying machine”.  They financed their scheme with the proceeds from their bicycle shop, they toiled after work hours in oblivion.  Later, when the brothers started to have some success with their flying efforts and gained notice from the press, Europeans accused them of lying.  Others ridiculed them.    It was a harebrained scheme and there were plenty of others with far more resources than they.  What gave them the audacity to think they could out maneuver Dr. Samuel Langley, the Secretary of the Smithsonian who had both wealth  and the NY Times covering his every move?
