Did you know that within the world of social media and while utilizing the advances of today’s technology networking can be fun, productive and profitable? How many of us actually use our time wisely and productively when it comes to making contact with other professionals or potential clients?  I would guess many would say that they could use some improvement in this area.  Entrepreneurs and those within the corporate sphere are super busy, carry plenty of responsibility and for the most part tapped out; however, there are simple ways to incorporate networking into your fast paced life when you remember it is about building relationships and not about making money instantaneously. With the proper balance of time management, dedication and practice you too can find easy ways to help your business grow through networking.

1) Mindset – if you desire success and growth within your business or career bad enough then the time to start is NOW! ‘Do the do’ even if it’s in small simple steps. You will be amazed at your success and you will be inspired to push forward.

2) Ask for help and communicate with others – Make it your mission to connect with others no matter the situation. You never know who you will speak with that will say that one sentence to solve a problem or make the light bulb in your head light up with the next idea that will move you forward. Ask questions to people in your industry and model those who are getting results. Create systems and test them – if they are working, repeat; otherwise change them. Remember, you want results!

3) Attend personal growth and development seminars – There is always something to learn to help your business. You can use them as a way for you to improve which in turn make you stronger in the long run. Plan in  advance for in person events that cater to potential prospects. Did you know there are many teleconferences that are available over the telephone for free or just for a few dollars? It is important to take advantage of learning opportunities as they allow you to explore and create new ideas. They also put you in a contact rich environment for growing your business.

4) Don’t wait for others to do what you should be doing for your business – Discipline yourself and never make excuses. Repeat… No Excuses!. “If it’s to be…it’s up to me”.  Create a habit to make contact with at least 2 to 3 new people each day and then follow-up with them within 48 hours. Set achievable goals and write them down. If they are not written they are nothing more than a wish. Each day look at them and do a little something that will bring you closer to your goal.   Get focused, creative, and make a decision to succeed and you will.

5) Be enthusiastic, positive and uplifting, inspire someone and show you care – Create a smile on someone’s face by sharing a few words of praise and watch them light up. Be one to add shine and sparkle to someone’s day. Whenever you have the opportunity give your business card do so with enthusiasm & with everyone you meet. Always remember to get their card in return. If there is no addresses are sure to ask so you can follow up with a card. You can also jot down some easy to remember key points from your conversation. These key points will ensure that their card becomes an effective follow up tool within your contact list.

Voila, some easy steps on how to incorporate effective networking opportunities within your life. Who knew it would be so easy? I’ve spent years perfecting my own networking skills. Let me tell you, it’s now fun for me and I do it without even thinking. It can be the same for you though practice, patience and by remembering to exchange business cards at every opportunity. Building relationships is fun and can make all the difference in your businesses and within you personally. So take a stab at it and share your results by leaving your comments below. Create an excellent day! ~Bonnie, the Option Girl
