Is your client list or project funnel looking a little anemic?
Or are you getting ready to launch a new product or service?
Have you been meaning to work on increasing your visibility to grow your client? Does that task, reaching out to your connections, keep getting put on the back burner?
The easiest way to fuel business growth is through colleagues and your professional network.
If you are anything like me, and we can keep this our secret, while working from you’ve become isolated from colleagues and people in your professional network.
The flexibility and freedom that comes with working from home is amazing. But the reality is, working from home requires extra effort when it comes to business and client development activities.
Have you been putting that effort and time into something else?
Have you been avoiding reaching out to your network?
I’ve been there and done that too.
So what’s a work from home woman to do when you need to get out there and refresh you network?
Attend cheesy networking events.
I don’t think so!
It’s time for traditional business strategy to meet modern business tactics.
Traditional Business Networking
The traditional strategy of business networking is fantastic – in real life encounters that create a network of people who know like and trust you.
But the traditional tactics – like cheesy networking events – plain old stink. Especially when you work from home.
It’s bad enough you have to change out of your yoga pants and do your hair and makeup.
Then add to that having to spending time in a room full of people who are trying to sell you something you aren’t interested in buying.
Not to mention the pay to play lead and referral networks who meet at 7am while you are still in your PJ’s.
It’s no wonder it’s easy to let networking activities slip through the cracks.
The only problem is that the easiest way to grow your business is through your relationships.
The people who know like and trust you.
The great news is that you don’t have to rely on old business tactics anymore.
Modern Business Networking
The modern world is full of technology solutions and those solution are even available to help you network.
