What is your style of Networking?
Have you ever attended one of those networking meetings where you add your biz card to a bowl and stand up and make a 2-minute pitch - and the same people attend each week?
I’ve attended some of those network "meetings" and you do meet some lovely like-minded people however attending them on a regular basis does not work for me I would rather do it naturally and I find it is possible. Apart from the fact since leaving a job where we were required to attend lots of meetings to discuss meetings I'd rather do it my way. Nevertheless you may find they work for you.
If you are anything like me you may enjoy the one off events that are organised.
When I became self-employed in 2011 I knew I had to start getting out there and let people know what I was offering.
There are many ways I have used over the years, interested to learn more?
Lesson Learned (So far)– Find your own way of promoting your own business, My motto is - Don’t be pressurised in to doing what someone else is doing. As an extrovert I need to be "out there" & be able to connect with whoever it is I am addressing, you may find other ways works for you, Are you ready to be creative with your brand as a mobile therapist ?
Over the years my business has evolved but I’m still the same me, however you do acquire a knack of being able to spot an opportunity to mention what ever it is you are offering. I find that most people ask me what I do.
As someone who doesn’t like to be stuck in one place I knew when I became self-employed a renting a space or shop wasn’t for me.
The different types of networking I've used locally tend to suit my personality as an extrovert.
What is your favourite way of ‘getting out there’ with your business?
