That’s what Frederick Business Connections offers members. The opportunity to expand your network and grow your business!
Networking is a deliberate activity to build, reinforce and maintain relationships of trust with other people to further your goals. Professional networking is simply networking focused on professional goals.
Many people are confused because the term is used quite loosely to describe also aspects of the sales process like prospecting.
People tend to trust people they know already, either directly or through another trusted person. This means that gaining that trust with new people is much easier when you have a strong network.
A strong network is where you have connections in all of your areas of interest with people who know who you are and what you want.
In practical terms you build this network by getting to know more people, building trust with them and telling them what you are looking for regarding your business.
What counts is not who you know, or even who knows you, but who knows you, knows you are trustworthy, knows what you do AND knows what you want.
