Discover the 4-Step System That Sales Professionals Use to Get Tons of Leads
If you’re in sales, whether you are a small business owner, an independent sales professional, a Realtor, etc. you are going to find yourself attending business networking events, right?
For many, just the thought of having to attend and mingling in a large room with a bunch of strangers is something they want to avoid at all costs. Raise your hand if that thought has ever gone through your mind?
Let’s look at it from a different mindset. Play along with me for a moment and erase from your mind all the blah ideas you have about networking events.
Let’s say you have been invited by a friend to a party – YEAH, who doesn’t like a party! You get yourself all fixed up (you know you’re looking great) and you go. You even show appreciation to your friend for inviting you, by bringing an nice gift.
Now you didn’t know who was going to be there, however you end up meeting some other guests who are in an industry related to yours. A couple of days after the party you receive follow up phone calls and these new connects want to meet with you about your products and how you could partner together to grow your businesses.
WooHoo! All because you accepted an invitation from “one friend”.
Now let do a quick comparison between this party and a networking event (still keep your past thoughts out :)).
- You didn’t know anyone who would be attending, just your friend who invited you.
- You were excited to go and got in the “party mood”.
- You were gracious to your host and found a way to show it (your gift).
- You extend yourself and mingled with the other guests (and you had a great time).
- You now have some potential new contacts who were drawn to you because of your enthusiasm.
So, think back for a moment, my guess is that this exact situation has happened to you or someone you know, yes?
This outcome can be duplicated at the networking events you’ve been avoiding. I encourage you to have a fresh mindset when you’re invited to your next mixer. Think of the great possibilities, at the very least you’ll develop outstanding communication skills.
