Are you looking for ways to boost your sales? Networking is a great way to help you achieve your business goals.
Whether you’re a business owner or a salesperson, business networking events can be a great way to generate leads, build relationships, and increase your sales.
At Paragon Sales Solutions, we understand the importance of business networking events for increasing sales. In fact, we love networking so much we even created and run our own networking events; you can find out more about these by clicking this link HERE.
With years of experience, we have developed a unique approach to networking events that helps businesses get maximum results from their efforts.
Here are some tips on how to use business networking events to boost your sales:
- Connect with the right people:
Networking events are all about connecting with the right people. Make sure you are meeting with people who are in your target audience and who can help you grow your business.
However, that being said, don’t get too caught up in trying to niche every event you go to down. Remember, sometimes, you aren’t trying to sell to the people in the room; you are trying to sell to their contacts too!
- Use social media:
Social media is an effective way to reach out to potential customers and build relationships. Use social media to promote the events you are attending and share interesting content that adds value to the conversation. You can also look to develop relationships with other attendees, way before the networking event is even on.
- Follow up:
After attending a networking event, follow up with the contacts you made. Send a simple email or message to thank them for their time and ask them to keep in touch; normally following up with a 1:1 conversation is a great way to solidify the relationship – and ensure you connect with these people on LinkedIn.
- Take advantage of opportunities:
When you attend a networking event, look for opportunities to increase your sales. Ask questions, listen to others, and use your networking skills to connect with people who can help you in your business.
Do take into consideration that it is very rare you will make a sale on just attending one event! Think of the long term goal here; you are planting seeds to harvest the fruit late on.
