Have you a networking event, See How to turn it on benefits of our hoe based business?


Are you a home based owner, seeking cheap marketing, trough online networking and B2B networking event, today event are all over for every niche, as freelancer and blogger too, in goal  to create connection and business minded personnes, whatever, if you are new to get in, there are greate tricks to fellow to participate with success.



Before

  • Search about participant to prepare for people to interact with. If this is not possible, Ask the event coordinator for information about any speakers or presenters. Once you will get an info, do soe search at Social media, you will build ideas about how to connect in your next event.
  • Be prepared, business card, any printing and digital file to share, prepare your business proposal   and  contract updated in a safe USB
  • Buy mints and/or gum (self explanatory). However, do not chew gum or suck on mints while speaking to someone at the event. It’s rude and distracting.

  • Wear clothes that are appropriate for the event, but also comfortable. Most networking engagements are business casual or business professional. Dress well, but do not over-dress or under-dress. You want to be remembered for the content of your conversation, not the clothes that you’re wearing. Also, be sure to wear comfortable shoes, as you’ll likely be standing or walking around for the event.
  • Prepare an elevator speech. This does not have to be extensive. Rather, it should be a short introduction to yourself and an informational and genuine answer to the popular question, “So, what do you do?”

During the event

You are just arrived , what your next step, 
  •  Connect you phone to  your social media, to share event, and create marketing story, even more be sure that your phone is in silent mod.
  • Select how many contact want you get per day, the more important is quality of business relation built.
  • Introduce yourself to the event coordinator. This person knows everyone that will be in attendance, and can be a big help for introductions. Ask them if there is anything you can do to help and thank them for facilitating the event.  A little kindness with the right person can go a long way.
  • Don’t eat or drink too much. You are there to expand your network, not break the world record for chicken wings eaten in an hour. If alcohol is served, have 1-2 drinks to loosen up, but do not over-indulge. Always keep one hand free for shaking hands.
  • Converse with confidence. Not everyone is the most confident speaker, but everyone is there for the same reason. Get out of your comfort zone. Don’t be afraid to approach people and join conversations. If you’re looking to join a conversation, don’t butt in. Rather, approach the group, make eye contact with one person, and hopefully, they will invite you to join the conversation. Be wary of approaching 1-on-1 conversations, as they could be speaking about private or intimate topics. If you’re feeling uncomfortable, read this article on a ‘small talk’ approach that can work for anyone!
  • They attend three, four, even five events in a week in a desperate grasp for new business. The predictable result is that they stay so busy meeting new people that they never have time to follow up and cultivate those relationships. And how can they expect to get that new business from someone they’ve only just met?
Smile, Smile and smile.
  • As one businessman remarked to me, “I feel like I’m always business but rarely getting anything done.”

  • Meeting new people is an integral part of networking, but it’s important to remember why we’re doing it in the first place: to develop a trusting relationship that will eventually lead to a mutually beneficial and continuing exchange of referrals.

  • When meeting someone for the first time, focus on the potential relationship you might form. As hard as it may be, at this stage don’t set out to sell your services or promote your company. You’re there to get to know a new person. A friend of mine told me something his dad always said: “You don’t have to sell to friends.” That’s especially good advice when interacting with new contacts.

  • This certainly doesn’t mean you’ll never get to sell anything to people you meet while networking; however, it means you’ll need to employ a different approach. Networking isn’t about closing business or meeting hordes of new people; it’s about developing relationships through which future business can be closed.

  • Once you understand that and put it into practice, you’ll notice a few things happening to your business.

  • Stand Out in the Crowd: Ask Good Questions

  • People often ask me how they can get business at an event when there are so many other people trying to do the same thing. I simply tell them to stand out from the crowd by doing things a bit different. A good way to do that is by asking a new contact good questions and taking the time to listen to her answers. (A “good” question is one that gets the person talking about herself while helping you understand her business. It is not an opportunity for you to vet this person as a client.)

  • Good questions not only get the ball rolling, they take the pressure off you to carry the conversation; meeting new people can be hard enough without feeling you have to be the life of the party to do it.

  • Differentiate from Your Competition

  • Another good reason for adopting this advanced networking approach is that it will differentiate you from the competition. This is vital for mortgage brokers, real estate agents, insurance agents, CPAs, financial planners, and others in highly competitive industries. You can’t go to a networking event without running into at least one person in some of those fields.

  • When you’re networking like a pro and treating new contacts as future referral partners, you’ll blow away any competitors who will still feel compelled to meet as many people as possible. Why? Because when you call your contacts, they’ll remember who you are and be willing to meet with you again.

  • With this in mind, let’s take a look at some specific steps you can take toward getting more business from your very next event.
  1. Spend ten minutes talking and listening person. Just because you’re not handing out your business card to 1,001 people doesn’t mean you should spend 20 minutes talking to just one individual. Invest a few minutes in getting to know each person. Make sure to ask for her business card. Then follow up with her after the event; this is where the heavy lifting takes place. Remember, all we’re doing now is setting the stage for future business.
  1. Write notes on the backs of peoples’ cards. this helped me , as will help you remember what the other person said at an event, it slows you down a bit so you’re not running around trying to meet the next person. 



After


  • Follow up within 72 hours.
  • Add your notes to a file, and update it after every event you attend.  This file will eventually hold important information regarding everyone you have met over the years. If you know someone is going to be at an event, bring up their file to jog your memory for conversation topics.
  • Add people you met on LinkedIn and send them a quick networking email message. Make sure to personalize the LinkedIn connection request so it is not the generic message.
  • If desired, set up a 1-to-1 meeting to develop the relationships further.

“If you’ve promised to send information or connect with someone, a good rule of thumb is to do it within 72 hours after the event,” says expert networker Joshua Steimle. “Waiting any longer may unintentionally convey disinterest.”
