Network Marketing Events
This article is to give you some directions of what to do at Network Marketing Events.
I have attended several network marketing events since 2010. I began attending these events through invitations of some of my business colleagues who found a strong interest in my business activity. They sought to offer me an opportunity to grow my business by sharing my offerings with others. I was truly excited with this opportunity. I knew my businesses were about to soar to the next level. I envisioned large engagement from others just because I was there. In my mind, the endorsement I received through the event planners was a home run.
I had great success at the event meeting new people, collecting business cards, and sharing my business. I have since learned some strategic points about networking events.
- Help event planners promote their events. Event planning is work! The success of an event hinders on its promotion, planning, and attendance.
- Support the event. The day of the event can be just as demanding as its planning stages. Event planners are tasked with syncing organization from set-ups with vendors, facility coordination, and simply keeping things in their professional order. The future of other events is always leveraged to the success of the current event. Help out if you can!
Referral Marketing. Don’t be selfish that you are the only one that has the next best thing since sliced bread. There are others who have great products, businesses, and services like you. Help promote them and I am sure you will find that they will promote you.
Lastly, The Follow Up. You will meet a lot of people on the day of the event. You will collect a lot of business cards. You will hopefully engage in many conversations. As you speak to people, take their business card and write a mental note about that person or the conversation. I challenge you to try to remember every person you speak with and every detail. Create a system to help you when you reach out to connect with them after the event. I personally use video email, which has proven very effective for me. Put forth the effort to follow up with individuals at least 24-48 hours after the event when memories are still fresh.
These are just a couple of points I wanted to share. I hope that it will help you with your next Network Marketing Event experience.
