When it comes to owning your own business there are a variety of ways you can establish growth. This can be done by marketing your business, advertising in all different forms, and networking. When we bring up marketing it can be established by having a website, using social media to share information, connecting with others, paying for an SEO campaign, Google AdWords, and so much more. Whereas, when it comes to networking this is a little more personal and, to be honest, one of the biggest ways we have grown Hershenberg & Stone-Walsh Insurance Services.
In fact, networking is something that we have been working on for a very long time and just like other forms of getting your company out there it does take work. So, let’s break down networking and discuss some of the highlights on why this should be a part of your plan to attract new clients. According to Investopedia, “Networking is the exchange of information and ideas among people with a common profession or special interest, usually in an informal social setting. Networking often begins with a single point of common ground. Networking is used by professionals to expand their circles of acquaintances, to find out about job opportunities in their fields, and to increase their awareness of news and trends in their fields or in the greater world.”
Simply put, if networking is done correctly it is a great way to train other professionals on what you do and more a less they can become part of your sales team.
