As the old saying goes that it’s who you know and not what you know thing is still has its potent effect in the industry where you currently belong. I suggest you widened up or broaden your connections especially in business. Make your presence felt in one significant gatherings where you are not familiar with. Go get to know more from the industry but be well aware of con men’s who are always in attack mode to swiftly clamp on their prey without any second thought., and dont make yourself looked like one!
Though most are on the web portals, exchanging emails and in chat rooms . It’s is far better to go face to face with them the old fashion way. The challenge is to acquaint with at least twelve new people in a year, that’s easy isn’t it? Think of those twelve peoples own acquaintances and that acquaintances network , that’s a huge threefold new connections in the offing. That’s the power of networking, sooner or later you’ll find yourself surrounded by agile and well respected people you could’ve never imagine in your entire life. But the fact is, you gotta sell yourself in the most strategic and wiser manner.. a little help there and a little voluntary works here will surely expands your network. I say this as the choice of many from those in the marketing jobs or career. Take a look at them in action, you’re surely envied their wits in talking to people as if they’ve known for more than a year that’s a clear skills or talent out there that you also possess and it just need a great amount of practice to reach at least half of their level.
Nobody will believe that you’re a great person if you don’t tell them so and this should be coupled with correct actions and accountability. If you wanna keep that strong tenfold circle of friends never make any promises that you’ll never make . Trustworthiness is key element when you wanna build your success around the power of networking.
Observe those evangelist, marketing guru and those in the broadcast media.. notice they possess the charm and aura of credibility. And you got that untarnished.
Remember that invitation you’ve just received from an agent to an open-house, you got to show your interest before they become interested to you. – Paquito
