Growing Your Network

Posted By Administration, Friday, December 14, 2012
Updated: Friday, August 30, 2013
I'm in a bit of a rut as I've seem to be networking with the same people all the time. How can I refresh my network to find new business prospects?

There are several actions that can help you build or refresh your network. A key first step is to get out and meet new people. Don't sit with the same people you always do when you go to meetings or networking events.

Be strategic in who you seek out as you build your network. Is there a complimentary business or consultant who is targeting the same company industry or niche you are? Gather names of people who might be good networking partners. Pick only one off the list and contact them with a few ideas of how you could work together. Spend a few weeks developing this new addition to your network and evaluate your approach to growing your connections.

TIP:Every few weeks, pick a person and contact them to seek ways you might work together. Keep your network vibrant and productive by focusing on your first objective - how helpful you can be to them. Then share ways they can help you.
