7 SECRETS OF NETWORKERS
7 HABITS OF HIGHLY EFFECTIVE NET WORKERS
Much is been said about networking in the last two years and for good reason. It is the core of one’s business promotion, marketing, and acumen. If you do it right, you will succeed in business. Here are seven areas that you can improve your networking and take it to the next level–
#1. Be There – show up, be present, get in the car drive there and be at your event and early if possible. 95% of life is showing up!
#2. Watch Your Appearance. Appearances can be deceiving and consumers draw a lot of conclusions about the quality of your service and personality based and what they see in your dress, body language, written materials and verbal skills. Appearances ultimately account for how you’re ultimately judged.
#3. Be Empathetic. To the extent that you treat someone as special and solve his or her unique problems, they will continue to be your customer. Treat people like VIPs. Zig Ziglar said if you help enough people get what they want they will help you get what you want.
#4. Be Reliable. Reliability means many things but especially being a person of your word. Do what you say and say what you will do and guarantee it. Establish credibility as being a faithful person.
#5. Ask Good Questions. Then shut up. The mark of a good conversationalist is not to talk a lot, but that you get others to talk to you. Ask good questions and you’ll be remembered as an interesting person.
#6. Follow-up. Give away lots of business cards but also follow up on all those that you receive. Make sure you call or email people and get back with them and are on their radar. Be known as the person who is the quintessential follow-up person.
#7. Make it Easy to Contact You. Make sure that people have your business card and can find you easily in the phone book or via social media or networking. Be the one who is easy to find.
Bonus Habit– Develop Trust and Likability – if they know you, like you, and trust you they will do business with you. How can they ever do these if they never have met your network?
I do solemnly resolve before God to take full responsibility for myself, my wife, and my children.
I WILL love them, protect them, serve them, and teach them the Word of God as the spiritual leader of my home.
I WILL be faithful to my wife, to love and honor her, and be willing to lay down my life for her as Jesus Christ did for me.
I WILL bless my children and teach them to love God with all of their hearts, all of their minds, and all of their strength.
I WILL train them to honor authority and live responsibly.
I WILL confront evil, pursue justice, and love mercy.
I WILL pray for others and treat them with kindness, respect, and compassion.
I WILL work diligently to provide for the needs of my family.
I WILL forgive those who have wronged me and reconcile with those I have wronged.
I WILL learn from my mistakes, repent of my sins, and walk with integrity as a man answerable to God.
I WILL seek to honor God, be faithful to His church, obey His Word, and do His will.
I WILL courageously work with the strength God provides to fulfill this resolution for the rest of my life and for His glory.
