This is a great time of the year to mix, mingle and intentionally network with new people. There have been a great many holiday receptions, Toys for Tots parties, awards breakfasts, luncheons, dinners and the like. Have you taken the time to get out, get seen, get known? How are you promoting your brand? How do people get to know who you are and what you do. After all, people do business with people they know, like and trust.
Plan your 2016 outreach/networking/marketing strategies and start booking your calendar now to attend conferences, workshops, seminars, receptions, business breakfasts, luncheons and dinners. Sure there are plenty of webinars and hangouts (stay tuned for the same from StephanieSpeaking LLC) however; there is nothing as memorable and impactful as being “belly to belly” with someone. Intent on growing your business in 2016 remember, shaking hands, eye contact, smiles, exchanging your “elevator invitation”, purposeful quick conversations, sharing information and referrals, exchanging business cards, inputting the card information into your CRM and immediate follow up with a call or email. Oh, there is more to this than meets the eye, get the details in my audio book – “Dating Your Business Prospect” . BE SURE TO VISIT MY WEBSITE!
