Should you be Networking?

Should you be Networking?

February 01, 2019

For a new business, or an established business looking to adapt its marketing plans, networking is more often than not suggested as a good place to start.

And as a networking group we would agree!

But why is networking a good idea, why should you and your business be doing it, and what will it achieve?

We asked members of Severn Business Network to answer these questions - and help you work out whether you should be coming along!

Why is networking a good idea?

Our members said….

  • Word of mouth is one of the greatest marketing tools
  • You automatically put yourself in front of dozens of potential customers
  • Sometimes business can be a lonely place, SBN has a room full of like-minded people which is inspiring, and reassuring, especially when everyone else is having similar issues too.
  • Networking supports others, supports charities and supports you in business.

Why should you and your business be doing it?

Our members said…..

  • You get your own 40-person sales team shouting about your business
  • It allows you to be focused on your business before the day even starts
  • Networking inspires you to learn from others and move and grow your business with their support
  • The breakfast is good!

What will it achieve?

Our members said….

  • It generates business
  • Promotes trust in your business and product or service
  • Provides an outlet to share and receive advice with other business owners
  • Allows you to form work connections with likeminded people
