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.

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.

To get it at its current low price, make sure you check it out today.
