How to Network like a Celebrity

The RICHEST people in the world LOOK FOR & BUILD NETWORK everyone else looks for WORK – Robert Kiyosaki

What I’ve discovered over time is that there is real power in the ability to build rapport and create long-lasting bonds through effective business networking. There was a time when I felt networking was tough although I knew the utility in business networking, I ignored it. I am sure many of us go through this phase.
Although many of us don’t enjoy networking it is an effective strategy for growing a business. It allows us to met other like minded entrepreneurs who may be a great fit to work together. It may be quit daunting to walk into a room where you don’t know anyone and you are suppose to mix and mingle with everyone. There are so many clients of mine who tell me they don’t like networking, you may not love networking but it is necessary for your business.

I am going to share 3 easy tips to help you network like a celebrity.
1. Shift your Mindset: Next time you go to a networking event act as though you are the host of the event, by doing this you are going to make yourself more
comfortable…WHY because if you are the host of the event it becomes your job to
make others welcome you need to talk to them. Imagine if its your party what would you do? If you don’t want to go to a big group stay in the room and find someone else who might look more uncomfortable then you. Begin conversation with them they are going to love it if you walked up to them and you never know you might make this a really good conversation. So shift your mindset from a participant to a HOST.
2. Make the Conversation about them: Let me ask you what is everyone favorite topic…it’s themselves, so when you start talking to people may be they ask “what do you do” sure tell them what you do but then shift it to asking more about them. People like to talk about themselves make the conversation all about them. It does not have to be strictly business talk to begin with. Talk to them how they got to the event, who else do they they know there, are they a part of the organizing team, you can even compliment them on something you recognise about them e.g the glasses, the bag etc., but remember nothing on the looks please. This will help you to put the person and yourself at easy and then communication will go naturally, after a while when you have build a rapport get to business.
3. Follow Up: Most people go for networking event take a lot of business cards and don’t do anything with them, or the put it into their mailing list and create junk mails for people who might not be even interested in looking at their mails. The better way to do this is to send a personal note over a mail referring to your meeting in the network event. Now that you know a person face to face connect with them on Social media such as LetzGain, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter etc this way you just get to know a little more about the person. You can even google them…Yes google them, may be they have appeared in some article or they have written some article make it a point to go and like it you can show them some acknowledgement by liking, commenting or sharing the same. Find some unique way to connect with the person further so that you stand out from the rest of the people who could have met them at the event.

Networking isn’t always fun but it is good for business. It is such an incredible way to build your business, meet new people, collaborate and if not they might be able to help you in some other way or may be you can provide value in their life as well.

So get out their and start networking.

Similarity between Buying A Car and joining Business Referral Group

When one is trying to buy a new Car, the interest is to

Use the Car to commute from one point to another on regular basis

When one is considering joining a paid Business Referral Group, the interest is to

Use the Group to get business from current level to one level up!

If you buy a car and never drive/use the Car will you get any value or Return on Investment (ROI) from it?

Probably not unless you have bought Car with the objective of parking it in your home :)

Same way being part of Business Referral Group will not give you any value unless you actively participate in the group. You know that you have not become part of this group to have its logo on your business card, that has very less value.

The more kilometers we drive the Car the better ROI we get from Car purchase.

Same way more active we remain in Giving Business Referrals, Connects and Knowledge in our Group the more ROI we get in terms of Opportunities, Knowledge and Connects.

So please remember this analogy to get maximum out of any Business Referral Group (Networking Club) that you are part of.

#1 Business Networking secret that few of us practice

The richest people in the world look for and build networks, everyone else looks for work.  — Robert T. Kiyosaki

There are more than 51 million (5.1 Crore) SMEs in India which employ 117 million (11.7 Crore) people. While these numbers are impressive, they also show that most of the business owners cannot hire or retain good staff and sales people. Many of us have tried various marketing methods resulting in utter failures or poor results. This leaves us to depend on our relationships in the local market to find new customers.

A recent survey asked thousands of business owners – what is their most important method to get customers? The result – Astounding 85% business owners depend on word of mouth to get their customers!

I am sure, many of us have gone for networking events or organizations for this same reason. We want others to share new business opportunities through their contacts or their referrals for us. We want a rock solid way of continuously generating referrals for our business month after month.

If you have gone to many such events or groups and have not found much success, here is the most important secret of business networking you need to know:

In these networking groups or meetups, “Your job is to be interested in others first!” – not selling, not sharing cards or talking about your products or services in the first interactions. (Unless others ask you about the same!).

Did you like anyone who in the first conversation tried to sell or showcase their services? Don’t be that stressful person for others! Instead, ask them quality questions, listen to what they say carefully and become genuinely interested in them and their business ventures. When possible think of helping them with referrals from your network first!

As Jebb Blount, a leading expert in Sales, puts it: “You don’t go to networking events to sell. You are not there to set appointments, get leads or close business. You are there to create connections with other people.”  You will eventually get business leads, appointments or even business closures from them –  If and only if, you are interested in others, in the first place!

So next time you network, remember the golden words from Maya Angelou,” People will forget what you said or did, but they will always remember how you made them feel!”

Better way to build a Business Network: Networking 101

” It wasn’t as lucrative as I thought it would be.” When was the last time you heard yourself think like this as a freelancer? Most probably at a networking event. There is a very intricate association between networking and freelancing. As a freelancer you are always interested in widening the horizons of your networks and attending networking events seems like a simple linear solution to this concern. However, networking events come with a limited scope with many conditions applied. First of all you need to be an extrovert and vouching for chances needs to be your forte.

How to Combine Offline and Online Networking?

eeting people in person has lot of advantages that an Online Network can never substitute but that does not mean that online Network for same “networking purpose” will not be beneficial.

We meet our close friends often but that does not stop us from interacting and having hundreds or even thousands of friends in Facebook. Both have their own value.

While there are many in person networking clubs and events for SMEs to generate Leads in structured and UN-structured ways. LetzGain brings a very easy to use online platform where you can post requirements and not only get responses from vendors but you discover leads which are nothing but requirements posted by other LetzGain Members (Business Owners).

LetzGain is Top Ranked online Business Network of SMEs optimized for Leads and referral sharing.
