To be a successful businessperson, you need to network yourself. Great networking, however, requires a multi-faceted attack. There is structured networking like business-referral groups (such as AmSpirit Business Connections), trade association meetings, and other organizations. In addition, there are networking events, like trade shows, business after-hours, and open houses. There is also free-form networking, such as going to lunch with someone, meeting up for coffee, or hitting the golf course.
In the 21st century, however, there is another important facet to great networking. This is taking advantage of social media, such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. If you find that you shy away from networking on social media applications like LinkedIn because you really don’t understand how to make the best use of it, read Networking On LinkedIn For The Successful Businessperson, an article written by author, consultant and founder of the AmSpirit Business Connections franchise opportunity, Frank Agin (firstname.lastname@example.org).
