Katrina Sawa’s Top 20 Networking Tips, Part 1 of 2

Kat at a WINK networking event in San Diego, Nov 2011

If you're a small business owner looking to grow your business fast, then you want to get networking! Networking in person can be your fastest path to quick cash flow if you have special offers and easy YES offers. Sure you can network online too but you most likely won't gain the trust and credibility as fast as you will when you meet your prospects in person, face-to-face. Networking continues to be one of my BEST sources of lead generation even now, 12 years into my business. I highly recommend it to ALL of my clients as well as their #1 marketing strategy. I'm not "too good" to network and go to some chicken dinner either like some coaches who've been in business as long as I … [Read more...]

The Secrets to Effective Networking & Consistent Follow Up

numberone

The number of people you have in your database is the number of people you have access to market to on a regular basis so your #1 goal in your business should be to build your database and set up a consistent, frequent system for marketing and following up with them. If this isn't your #1 goal, you're missing out on a ton of sales. If you're not networking (online and in person in some way), you're missing out on a ton of sales. Networking in person can be your fastest path to quick cash flow if you have special offers and easy YES offers. Here is a quick 6 STEP networking and follow up guide for you: Have you defined your target market? Are you sure? Who is your ideal client?   … [Read more...]

Are you lacking in YOUR follow up?

bizcards

Have you got stacks of these around YOUR office? Massive networking and consistent, relationship marketing follow up are the two main things that I did from day one, 12 years ago, (and still do!) to build a very successful and profitable business. If you are attending networking events at least a couple times a month or more and/or speaking or being an exhibitor at live events then I would venture to guess that you are NOT doing enough follow up. NO ONE DOES! You are most likely missing out on thousands of dollars every single month due to your lack of follow up (and following up in many different ways too, not just one or two). I find (and so do many of my clients who are using my … [Read more...]

Working the Room

Networking

As a seasoned networker who built my multiple six figure coaching business initially by networking and follow up, I had to learn how to meet as many people as possible in order to have more leads to develop each month. Ten years ago when I started my business I attended an average of 14 networking events every month. While the follow up of all the leads you get at such events is a crucial component of making this work, without enough leads to follow up on, you'll basically get nowhere fast. Therefore, here are a few key tips on how to make the most of your time at your next networking event - Working the Room! 1. Be Prepared:  Go with a goal of how many connections you want to make … [Read more...]
