Blogging for Networking

I wanted to make mention of this Blogging 4 Networking Blog - I hope you find it useful.

Start your own networking business!

One of the best ways to leverage your network is to start a new business. You can earn money from putting the right people in touch with eachother as a "concierge", or consultant. Think about the types of people you know and what services they are looking for. What products do they need to sell. Do you know how to help them, can you sell yourself as the person who can bring those relationships to them?

It is important to consistantly build these relationship, whether you are running your own business, or working for someone else. Make sure that you make network a part of your everyday responsibilies, making phone calls, sending cards, or a newsletter. Position yourself as the resource that everyone wants to know and a business opportunity will present itself!

Making Money thru Your Networking Business

One of the things that scares people more than anything else...after public speaking and death... is cold-calling. Hardly ANYONE likes to cold call. Whether it is fear of rejection, talking to strangers, or just that weird sticky feeling you get on your ear when you talk on the phone too long... most people just won't do it.

The way around cold calling? Having enough prospects. How do we get enough prospects.. we know people who know people. - if you are one of those people - the good, lucky, smart person who has networked successfully and know the right people, (who know the right people) - you can sell that. Make a commission - get a finder's fee... your opportunities for turning who you know - and how well you know them into a business are there - now go out and sell...you.
