As a business owner, I’m sure you’ve heard that networking is CRUCIAL to growing your business. However, when it comes to networking you’re frustrated because:
- You’re attending networking event after networking event but not getting any leads, opportunities or clients who pay you want you are worth – what are you doing wrong?
- You’re collecting business cards (like you’ve been told to do), however you’re unsure of the best way to connect with them, so they get filed away at the bottom of your desk drawer – collecting dust.
- You send a ‘great to meet you’ email to people you have met and you share a little information about your products/services – just in case they are interested, yet they never really are.

Whether you’re introducing yourself to a group of people or just one person at a networking event, nerves can get the better of you, with the first impression you leave, unfortunately being less than memorable or compelling.
When it comes to networking, who do you think does it better? Extroverts or Introverts? The answer may surprise you.
For many business owners having to introduce themselves to a group of strangers at a networking event is something they fear. However, when it comes to networking, F.E.A.R. is actually a very good thing.
Meeting and striking up a conversation with a stranger at a networking event can be a nerve-wrecking experience for even the most experienced business professional.
Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, and the list goes on. All are online platforms I’m sure you’re familiar with. But are these online tools distracting you from face-to-face networking and/or nurturing and strengthening relationships?
Networking is a great way to grow your business, however only if done correctly. Do you know the correct etiquette when it comes to connecting with someone for the very first time? If you don’t, your approach might sour a relationship with someone who may have become your biggest advocate.
“First impressions count,” is a saying I’m sure you’re familiar with. So, with the microphone poised at your lips and everyone’s eyes on you for the next 45 seconds – what you say next matters if you want to make the RIGHT impression.
