You know the saying if you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always got!
Another great saying, there are many ways to skin a cat (sorry cat lovers!).
Both of these sayings are talking about what else could you be doing to help the success of your business? So how much of an effort do you need to put in to get results?
We at Pinnacle&Co. don’t just rely on our website, our signage, word of mouth. We get out there amongst it. But how? Many different ways, but one huge way is networking.
Here’s another famous saying… people who become successful surround themselves with successful people. Positive, successful people can only motivate you, their energy rubs off on you, it drives you to do better yourself. When you hang around people that network, they are the type of people that care about their business or their place of employment. So by being motivated, driven and excited about your business can only be good for your business and also your inner self.
Networking gives you more opportunities. It keeps you on your toes delivering great service, as you know how important that referral is. You know how much it means to get it right for someone that referred you – let’s face it, doing a wonderful job for someone, is your great way to say “Thank You” for passing your company name on!
There are many forms of networking. We can’t tell you what would work for you. But look at doing something regular, the more regular, the more you get to know someone, and people do work with people. Even if you’ve been in business for years, or it happens to be your first day on the job is irrelevant, networking is always going to help you grow as a person and as a company.
Networking helps you be proud of what you do, it helps with your public speaking. And very importantly it keeps you clear on your business objectives and message to your target market.
Again, all this helps your business!
