Networking Advice

Networking advice especially for the introvert begins with finding a way to overcome that fear but not like most would tell you.  If it wasn’t a fear you wouldn’t have to confront it and probably wouldn’t need networking advice to begin with.

If you are a shy introvert who has a difficult time in and around crowds I’ve got some networking advice you can take to the bank and actually succeed even if it scares you to death.

Here’s a couple of situations you probably have a difficult time with.  First scenario is attending a large event with lots of people you don’t know.  If you’re shy you’ll probably look for someone you know and/or head to the corner to hide.  I mean, I’m not a fan of crowds.  I don’t particularly like to be around large groups of people especially if there’s no room to breath.  I guess you could call me claustrophobic.

My solution is to slice the crowd into smaller pieces.  I’m going to head back to the area where I checked in and ask if there’s a business owner I know that might be there, one I’m looking to connect with, or a business, or an industry.

The odds are I can find someone to introduce me to that person.  This slices and dices the crowd to one person.

One more scenario.  You’re at a large event that has food, maybe tables setup for you to eat.  Perhaps they’ve allowed for time to mingle and network before the event begins.  The first thing you should do is secure your seat at a table.  Make sure you consider where the table is located.  For example, my back isn’t what it used to be so I tend to sit at a table near the back of the room with a seat that allows me good visual to the speaker.  Should I need to leave early or stand I won’t disturb the event.

But, the same thing applies that we spoke about earlier.  Check in with the person at the attendance table.  That person is your best friend.

Finally, walk around the table where you’re seated and say something to every person.  It’s polite and customary to do this and you shouldn’t have a problem.  At least that’ll help you meet a few people before the event begins.

I’ve got a lot more on networking advice with my Nevada SPEED Networking Kit.  It is the only thing like it out there today.  My manual, attache case, CDs, and other goodies will help you get a fresh, fast start, to your networking.  Networking is in-person marketing.  You may be a small business owner, high-end sales, or entrepreneur, and need to market your services/products.  Every business should have a portion of their marketing invested in IN-PERSON marketing.

I’ll ship you, two day via U.S Post Office (for U.S. customers) The Nevada SPEED Networking Manual, speed networking bag, several CDs, a Quick-Start Guide, plus a Bonus One Hour Phone Consult with me, grab it now.

The BIG Networking Conspiracy Against YOU

The BIG Networking conspiracy against you is real and all to often we don’t realize how deadly it can be.  Before I go on you can easily apply this conspiracy for all you do in business.  Someone(s) are attempting to distract you, something is attempting to distract you, when you wake up in the morning there will be many distractions and I guarantee you the the big networking conspiracy against you is the largest distraction you’ll ever be confronted with.

Can You Really Get More Business at Business Networking Functions?

Recently I did a 12 part series on different networking strategies including the big networking conspiracy against you.  You can grab that networking technique here for a few bucks that includes a CD as well.  You can grab it here now and I’ll include shipping & handling free.  Within a few hours you’ll receive the pdf of The BIG Networking Conspiracy Against YOU and I’ll mail the CD the same day.

What got me thinking about the big networking conspiracy against you was after arriving in Vegas, not knowing one person, I had decided to go to as many business networking functions as I could.  I managed to attend 9 different regular weekly business networking functions that was designed for regular attendees who belonged.  They allowed guests so I contacted everyone to ask if I could attend.

That was only the beginning.  For the next several months I attended every kind of business networking function you could think of.  I also had just begun my business from scratch.  So, it was more than just connecting.  It was about developing my presentation based on the responses of attendees of all those business networking functions.  And of course, the big networking conspiracy against you (me) began almost immediately.  When you’re in business you typically prioritize things and that’s where the trouble begins.

In order to combat the big networking conspiracy against you there needs to be rules you abide by.  There needs to be a philosophy about how you market your business.  I go through this plus more and you can grab it below and I’ll include free shipping & handling.  Basically, for $7 bucks I’ll send the BIG Networking Conspiracy Against YOU in a pdf document a few hours after you complete the transaction and include a FREE CD of it that I’ll mail you the same day (as long as you’re in the U.S.).  For those outside the U.S. complete the transaction and I’ll send you the pdf and also contact you for the additional postage.  Whatever the postage above the U.S. rate is added.  So, its not really that much.

Networking For Business

There is a BIG TIME conspiracy against YOU when networking for business.  It is real and it can not only suck up all of your time but make you so unproductive that you become depressed because you’ll become ineffective networking for business.

I would know better than anybody because when I arrived in Las Vegas I knew no one.  No business owners, no high-end sellers, and no entrepreneurs.  I had lived in Phoenix for plus 25 years and knew a heck of a lot of people in Arizona but not Nevada.

I can tell you that I knew it would be a problem networking for business.  It is difficult to start from scratch.  The older you get the more it is difficult to start from scratch.  But, I’m here to tell you that if I can do it, YOU can do it as well.

And, I don’t care if you’re an introvert or an extrovert or somewhere in between.  I don’t care if you tend to hide in the corner when confronted with a big crowd of people or stay in the parking lot out of fear.

I’m not the life a party.  So, if you are, great.  I’m going to lay out the big networking business conspiracy against you and how you can succeed life of the party or not.

By the way, I put out a 12 part series “SPEED NETWORKING” tips, techniques, and strategies.  You can check it out here.

There are several Networking for Business Rules I live by:

  • You absolutely must GO WITH A PLAN
  • You absolutely must GO WITH A PURPOSE
  • You absolutely must look the part
  • You absolutely must “show up”

So, here’s a couple of tips.  When you do the above you’ll be more productive in spite of your handicaps.

Business Marketing

One of the biggest mistakes people make with their business marketing is to assume that the product or service will sell itself.  That is, to somehow think your product is so superior that everyone’s going to fall all over them self to grab it now.

The truth is there are so many alternatives to everything out there that your business marketing is the only thing that’ll save you.  If you think about it for a moment ask yourself this question.  How many coffee shops are there around your house or in your neighborhood or at a shopping mall or down the street?

How to Promote Your Business & Maximize Your Marketing Through Business Networking Functions

There are many alternatives to your product or service.  There is very little under the sun that hasn’t been reinvented or duplicated.  No one has a lock on computers.  There are numerous options for cell phones/smart phones.

There’s an infinite number of everything out there.  As consumers we have choices, lots of choices, in everything we buy, do, or want.

There are networking tips and there are networking tips

I guarantee you that whatever it is you produce there’s one like it or close enough out there.  To make matters even more challenging there are probably price points.  Near my home are a couple of different hamburger choices.  I can spend a buck or two or ten or twenty with each option a little different but the concept applies.

This means how to market your business, specifically your business marketing is critical to your success.  It’s that simple.

A Business Networking Strategy from Donald J. Trump

But, here’s what most of us do.  We fall in love with our product/service.  We put together a business and maybe even a location and invest a whole bunch of dollars getting the thing opened and ready.

The last thing on our mind is business marketing.  And, for many, they either run out of money or refuse to invest anything into their business marketing.

So, today’s lesson is to INVEST in your business marketing.  There are many methods you can use but don’t get cheap here or you’ll soon find yourself out of business.

How To Promote Your Business

How to Promote Your Business and Maximize Your Marketing Through Business Networking Functions.

And do it naturally & easily QUICKLY, even if you’re starting from zero connections.  I’ve done it and you can do it as well.  I started from ZERO connections in Vegas and I’m going to show you how to do it.  The first thing to remember is there is an ebb and flow to your networking but the thing that should never slow or stop is constantly building new business connections.

I attended fewer business networking functions in April and made more connections than January (which was a record for attending business networking functions).  I share this to show you that it’s not quantity of networking functions that’s important, it’s the quality.

If you don’t know this about me, I operate Nevada SPEED Networking.  It is what it sounds like.  It’s like speed dating minus the obvious part.  I fill the room with lots of Business Owners, High-End Sellers, and Entrepreneurs and connect them naturally and easily.

You’d be surprised how many participants are total introverts.  It’s not bad but true and during the event I give them permission, in an upbeat way, to introduce them self at the speed of sound.  It doesn’t matter if you’re an introvert or extrovert or anywhere in between.

It’s a fun and fast-paced event but here’s the question I get asked a lot.

How to Promote Your Business without chewing up all your time, spending enormous amounts of money and keep from getting completely burned out?  It is an interesting question because I can tell you first hand how tough it was arriving in Las Vegas not knowing anyone and starting from scratch.  I’ve made numerous mistakes along the way and decided to blog my experience so others can avoid those mistakes and become better, a Professional Networking and actually Network like a Pro.

I titled this, How to Promote your Business but it’s so much more.
How to Promote your Business, how to promote you through business networking functions.

That’s what we’ll be covering over the next few weeks.  By the way, if you’re ever in Vegas drop me a line and I’ll send you an invite to attend the next Nevada SPEED Networking event.  Why keep it a secret and why let it stay in Vegas when you can take the concepts, strategies, and tips I go over at each SPEED Networking event and apply them to You and Your Business.

The folks that are interested in attending SPEED Networking are:  Small Business Owners, High-End Sellers, and Entrepreneurs.

My whole focus is on the little guy and gal out there that are up against the Big Guns.  These large corporations have an advertising budget that’s huge.  You can’t compete with them on Ads but you can compete and win by focusing on the personal touch.  By focusing one-on-one in a warm market.  By maximizing business networking functions.

So what’s my story?

I arrived in Vegas 3 years ago knowing no one person and built business connections so fast that within months had a significantly large number.  But, I didn’t stop there.  I began expanding to other parts of town and made more connections.  Eventually, I met Senators, Governor, Mayors,  Congressmen (the list goes on) and some real movers and shakers in the business world.

So, in addition to connecting at the speed of sound I can safely say, I’ve done it.  Do it, and still am building business connections today.

But, there’s a lot of blow-hards out there that’ll tell you what to do.  Of course, they’ve never done it.  They’ve never gone out and built business connections at all.  They come up with silly stuff that’s more common sense than anything else.  But, I’m here to tell you that what you might think of as common sense doesn’t work.

In fact, all of the “industry” way of thinking about building business networking functions is flat out wrong!

Be sure and check out this site and you’ll see different links to other websites with tips on how to market your business through business networking functions.

See ya at the next event,

How to market your business thru less networking functions and can You Really Get More Business At Networking Functions?

Got great questions from a subscriber today concerning how to market your business thru less networking functions.  It was more about How to Market Your Business at Networking Functions.

The first one is really interesting.  Jim wants to know how it is possible to grab more business, how to market your business thru less networking functions and develop loads of business contacts by attending fewer business networking functions, not more…

Well, Jim, it’s not as hard as it seems.

It has to do with understanding human nature.  Last time I mentioned that I took a page out of the book, The Art of The Deal, by Donald Trump.

The truth is, he didn’t start out a billionaire just like I started in Vegas not knowing anyone.  Not even one business owner.  I knew nobody but yet in a relatively short time began connecting so quickly I could barely keep up.

And now, attending less business networking functions I’m connecting even faster than before.

So that’s how I did it.

And you know what?

You can too.

I show you how in “A Hidden Networking Lesson from Donald J. Trump”.

You see, most people make the mistake of thinking more is better.  I made the same mistake when I arrived in Vegas.  I attended every business networking function I could find.

Yes, I did great, BUT…

I was wearing out quickly.  Let’s face it.  You can only be at so many functions before you die out and get burned out.

I was heading that way until I discovered that the opposite is true.

It wasn’t until I started attending fewer functions that I realized I was making more contacts not less.

And I had more energy.  And I had more time for business.  And I had more time to follow up with those new contacts.

I know it might seem crazy but its true.

And, you can get it right here.

Grab it and I’ll also bonus you my CD where I elaborate more on it and specifics of how I did it and how you can as well.

You’ll get “A Hidden Networking Lesson from Donald J Trump” within an hour or so after completing the transaction and I’ll go to the post office today to mail you the CD right to your doorstep.

Right now it’s priced low and I’m including shipping & handling FREE.

See ya at the next event,

P.S.  I’m thinking about raising the price soon on it.  But for now, in the United States, I’ll also include the CD plus Shipping & Handling FREE.

Networking Business Ideas

There are Networking Business ideas out there but do any of them really work?  Just like you, I used to suffer from Business Networking fatigue.   The constantly coming and going to business networking functions were not fun.  And, usually someone came up with a Networking Business Ideas but didn’t have a clue as to how to do it.  Which meant networking for me …

Was just miserable.

And I really feel for anyone else putting up with it.  But, last year I read a book called, The Art of The Deal, by Donald J. Trump.  I read the book for different reasons but one part of the book really stood out.  It was a Networking Business Ideas that really caught my attention.  You see, it wasn’t part of the book the way you’d think and that’s why I think the idea escaped most people.  And, I don’t think Trump realized just how brilliant the idea was.  Frankly, I think he stumbled onto it by being relentless in something else.

Business Networking can be rough.  And, it’s rare you’ll ever meet a professional networking person who’ll reveal those secrets to success.

It doesn’t have to be this way.

You see, one day while I was networking I had a kind of weird idea about how to solve my networking problem.

I decided to take a page out of the book, The Art of The Deal, by Donald J. Trump.

So I tried it to see what would happen.

And much to my surprise … it worked!

Before you get all lathered up … the book has nothing to do with networking except he did something that really contributed to his success that involved business networking..

In fact it worked so well, I at first, thought it was a “fluke”.

But it wasn’t a fluke.

It DOES work.

And, I believe it can eliminate your networking problems, too.

I’ll roll back the curtain on what Trump did and show you exactly what I did and how you can do the same thing and actually build business contacts through networking functions naturally and easily.

I call it:

A Hidden Networking Lesson from Donald J. Trump.

Grab it and I’ll also bonus you my CD where I elaborate more on it and specifics of how I did it and how you can as well.

You’ll get “A Hidden Networking Lesson from Donald J Trump” (pdf) within an hour or so after completing the transaction and I’ll go to the post office today to mail you the CD right to your doorstep.

But hurry, I’ve only got 7 CDs left.

 

Right now it’s priced low and I’m including shipping & handling FREE.

That won’t be the case forever.

Grab it today and watch your networking fatigue problem go away by tomorrow.

See ya at the next event,

David…
.
P.S.  If you buy it today, I’ll also include the CD plus Shipping & Handling FREE:

Grab it now and you’ll also receive a FREE Guest Invite to the next Nevada SPEED Networking event on Tuesday, July 25th (even if you’ve already attended).

But you can’t put this off.

Only 7 CDs left.  And, I’ve cut the price in half for this week.  Once the next blog post comes out the price returns to $14 bucks.  But for now, you can get it for $7, both the pdf and CD delivered to your doorstep via U.S. Post Office.  If you’re outside the U.S. I’ll send you a note for the additional postage due.  U.S. residents get it shipped FREE.
