To insure that you don’t miss out on any of these imporant tips, please take a moment to subscribe to this blog if you haven’t already done so.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tip # 2 – Pass Referrals and expect nothing in return!

 

“You can have everything in life that you want if you will just help enough other people get what they want.” Zig

This is one of the hardest things for most people to openly embrace. But without embracing it, they can

forget about creating a huge referral network. Let me explain… If I asked you, whom do you remember from the last networking event you attended? You would probably say “No one really.” But what if someone from that last event called you afterwards to say “Hey John, after we spoke at the chamber event last week about how you would like to do more business with contractors, I sent out an introduction e-mail to the five companies I have been working with for years along with your contact information and a link to your beautiful website – I hope this works out well for you.”

Hmm?? My guess is that you’re remembering that guy! Even if you don’t land a job from it, the gesture was sincere and he made a positive impression on you.

This is a terrific way to create a new business relationship! I recommend you take one person from your next networking event and find a way to extend a sincere referral to them and then see what happens! The key here is to remember that giving is a wonderful gift in life because everything you give comes back to you – multiplied!

Happy Networking!
