As we near the end of 2009, it's our tendency to slow down in our networking efforts. It's a very busy time of year and we tend to feel we just don't have time to attend one more networking event. So stand out and take the opportunity to attend one more networking event before the end of the year.
Now is the time to prepare for the New Year. One of the best ways to market your business is to build trusting relationships. You build trusting relationships by networking and getting to know people and what they do. Take a sincere and personal interest in them. Find out who their ideal client is so you know who to refer to them.
Start planning today to grow your network so you can start 2010 on the right foot. Make it a point to connect with at least 2-3 new people and follow up in January over a cup of coffee.
