Fitting Business Networking into a Busy Holiday Season

holiday-networking

We have spoken constantly about the need to make time in your business to network in past articles because it is important enough to repeat again and again. Networking creates relationships. Relationships create opportunities. Opportunities create sales. It’s a business structure that has been around since the first time there was bartering competition.

But the holidays give us even less time to deal with anything besides the holidays. You have gifts to shop for and wrap. You have relatives coming by that you haven’t seen all year. There’s food to prepare, homes to decorate, and maybe some snow to constantly shovel.

With all those other activities consuming your time, it’s okay to cut back on networking your business a little, or take a break from events, right? No one is looking to start up a business relationship during the holidays, right?

Wrong.

While people may not be looking to start a business relationship during the holiday season, they will be hitting the new year hard with plans for their business. By investing just a little bit of time to market your business during the holiday season now, you may not ink a contract in the next few weeks, but you may be at the forefront of peoples’ minds when they start to figure out the financial plans for the new year.

Wouldn’t you rather have the holiday tree cut when you need it instead of having to look for a saw?

Join Us Next Monday to De-Stress for the Holidays!

Building Your Client Pipeline

networking_pipeline
Everyone says the same thing in business. “I need more clients!” But no one says how to get those clients, nurture them, keep them, and eventually have them extend your networking pipeline without even knowing it. The reason is that there is no easy answer. There is no magic formula that gives you active, hot leads that are ready to give your business a shot.
When constructing a networking pipeline for your business, consistent work is going to be the key to success, not where you start.
When I first started this networking business, I had to start from scratch even after filling up my Rolodex. Although I had 2 years of building events, I legally couldn’t reach out to the contacts I made due to a contract with the firm that I was working for. So I started over. I took the first steps of networking all over again, with friend and family, a warm market.
But then I expanded by talking to everyone about my goals and told my story. I didn’t sell them there on the spot. I just told my story of what I was trying to accomplish. with perseverance, my list began to grow. I partnered with people, and my list grew. I tried new things, and my list grew. Of course, through this process people came and left, but that was okay because I was always adding people onto the list, and sometimes the people that had left had also left their own lists.
What activity do you do every single day to grow your list and keep it active?
How many lunch dates do you have a week?
How many people have you helped get what they needed?
This is all part of building relationships. Relationships builds a strong business base. And a strong base is the key to success.
