HOW TO GET BUSINESS CONTACTS
I promised to share tips on how to get quality business contacts from my previous post ; “How to Invest in your 20’s” kindly read if you haven’t done so.
If you are just getting started in a new business, chances are that you might not have any contacts, to build your clientele base. Contacts is not something you have somewhere like in a briefcase,it is something you have to get and build on consistently. For instance, if you are in a new city, and you don’t know anyone,go to a local Chamber of Commerce there are a lot of business people there, attend their functions,mingle and start somewhere in building your contacts.
Business events are also a good place to get contacts, don’t just go to only free events,buy a ticket and attend high value events, don’t be cheap!
When you have achieved a certain level of success in getting business contacts and having useful clients or customers, you should think of joining a Country club, Golf club, Tennis club in your area, then build up to joining entrepreneurs organisations.
Something important to understand when approaching very successful people, do not hand out your business card first, except they ask for it,or you tell them the value you can add to their business.
Leave your questions at the comment section, I’ll be glad to respond.
