You have to be prepared to do the business networking that is necessary for you to enhance your profits and to make your business grow into all that you want it to be.

I cannot re-iterate this enough because you never know when your opportunity to talk to the right people will come.

Have your business technique and pitch ready for when you need it.? The only way to do this is to have it ready BEFORE you need it.? That means practicing it alone, with friends, or partners before you even have a networking event to attend.

You need to be professional at all times no matter where you are and what you are doing.? You should act in a professional, business manner so that you can gain the respect you want and deserve when you are discussing business.? That doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with your clients.? Just the opposite: have fun but be professional.

You want to be ready with your agenda when you see the appropriate time.? If you are out with a group of friends and you spot a potential business adventure, you need to be ready to communicate your idea or sell your product.? You have to make sure that you are ready and willing to give it your all in order to make things happen.

If you prepare properly, you will generally know when the right time is to discuss business and when to just relax. The way to be ready for such networking opportunities is to prepare BEFORE they arise. By taking these simple steps, you have a better chance at succeeding in the way that you want to.

  1. I agree that one has to be ready to network at all times. I cannot count the number of times I have been casually talking to someone, and then the discussion turns into, “oh, so what do you do?” Then I mention I creat websites for small businesses and BAMN! A new contact and a potential client. Thanks for the great article.

  2. I think it takes a lot of mental energy to be ready network at all times, but I have always found the payoff to be huge. What you can accomplish when you know the right people is amazing.
    Quick example: Prior to working for myself, I beat out over 40 candidates in two different jobs. Not because I had stellar credentials, but because I knew someone in the company who was trusted by the hiring manager.
    I don’t know that it was fair, but it’s how the world works.

    Be careful not to give away your trade secrets…
    otherwise you’ll found later you had clones…

  4. What do you think of moo cards as business cards? Should one stick to the standard size or try to stand out?
