Good morning Cincinnati! Here at TBN we have been experiencing some issues with our networkers. They have been calling and emailing wondering what they could do first at these events….how could they maximize their networking…..how they could build more contacts…..how they could start to do more business….
Well, I have been answering by asking them this……did you go up to them and introduce yourself or did you hide in the corner behind someone you already knew? This question always gets ‘em. Here at TBN Cincinnati…we try and help all of our networkers. But isn’t that what we are supposed to do? Business to business networking in Cincinnati isn’t the easiest accomplishment……right? Networking in Cincinnati has its trials and tribulations……right? I don’t know, maybe…maybe not. This first step is valid in any city….any state….any event….
What is the first thing you do? Do you go and talk to someone you already know or go introduce yourself to someone NEW? The next time you wish to network with more people….the next time you want to increase your opportunity with your business…..the next time you want to build some partnerships here in Cincinnati….the next time you attend an event, it all starts with introducing yourself to as many people/networkers as possible.
