DURHAM NETWORKING - The Benefits of Networking in your Community

Networking is a great way to get out and meet other like-minded business owners. There are so many opportunities in the Durham region to strut your stuff. Here are a few benefits that I have experienced from networking.

1. You meet a lot of great people! Networking is about meeting people to find out what business they own. Most networking groups are super friendly and people want to get to know you.

2. Practice your pitch Polish your "sales" message to other business owners and get feedback from like-minded people. Everyone is in the same boat and are happy to help you succeed.

3. Build a referral network Any business needs to use the services of other companies. From lawyers, accountants, financing, sign makers, websites, human resources, IT, and so on. I have met so many great people that I continue to use year after year.

4. Get clients and grow your business As you build relationships and people find out what you do, people will start referring business to you as a trusted source. It does take time to build trust but it will pay off in the long run.
