There is a plethora of vibrant activities around SMEs, all ripe with enough personal interaction, social media and community events that could keep you busy every day of the year. Most SME’s seek support to implement the necessary strategies to maximise their contacts both personally and through online networks.
These events and gatherings promise to connect, educate, entertain you and create new customers, but without good support to improve your personal networking and communications technology, you could leave your business falling well short of your aspirations.
Don’t leave the information technology out of the equation because it helps you to control contacts and personal networking, the number one marketing tool.
Being reliable, practical, useful and helpful when you meet people will be an excellent start to improving your networking skills. Support and training in these skills will be invaluable.
