Building relationships can be tough especially when you’re the new girl on the block, some of my tips for building relationships that shouldn’t cost you $350 are:
- Meet and greets – It’s important to know who’s in your industry make it a point to connect with them, call them up and say… “I’d like to meet you and learn more about your business”
- Make it a point to follow up after your meeting – Send them a personalized card.
- Make it your business to attend industry events and follow up with all those you meet after.
Again, it’s all about building relationships as the new guy/girl on the block you have to remember that it’s going to take time and you have to be persistent. Moreover, be sure to evaluate and think about it before joining any type of organization that has member fees, sometimes your business isn’t the right fit, make sure you do your research. Finally, don’t expect the phone to ring off the hook, your new to this so, keep plugging, keep going and as a result you’ll see your business grow.
