How can networking help your business?

Networking is a great opportunity to meet potential customers, suppliers and collaborators. Building those connections can help your business grow exponentially. Most people like to do business with people, so if you personally are visible, likeable and helpful your business is immediately more appealing.

But it’s not all about making sales. Having a network of other professionals you can call on can make a huge difference to your business. Most business owners will come across similar problems throughout their careers, so they may be able to share some sage words of wisdom with you.

And don’t forget, you’re not just presenting yourself to the people in the room. They will all know plenty of other people who could be your customers if you create the right impression and continue to build relationship on and offline.

Our Top Online networking tips

You could include your business branding in the background, to help others remember you and your business!

Prepare a short 1-2 minute introduction to your business. You will have the opportunity to tell the group who you are and what you do. If you’ve already thought about it, there’s less pressure on the day

Think about what sort of business it would be helpful for you to connect with and see who in the virtual room can help you

Listen to what other people have to say; don’t just talk about yourself!
