While on location at the WOW (Woman of Worth) Conference in Vernon earlier this year, I realized just how important it is to attend live events and do some good old fashioned business networking.
Today’s eTip shares some important things you can be doing while at a live event that can’t happen if you’re always hiding in front of your computer or smart phone:
Christine Awram is the founder and creator of these WOW events and she has them twice a year.
I have been enjoying attending them and that’s what had me creating this tip. It’s really important to get away from the computer and network in person. Attending events like this is a great way to build your business.
Even if it’s just a day-long event or if you can spare the time, a weekend or even week-long retreat.
Take the opportunity to Connect with the other attendees and find out what their challenges are. Many great business opportunities will present themselves once at the event.
Make an effort to get out and connect with your target market and build relationships.Attending live events is a great way to build your businessClick To Tweet
Social media has made us comfortable sitting behind our cameras and smart phones but nothing beats a 1 on 1 live connection.
Do your homework and find out what events you can attend. Even if it’s just a luncheon it’s a great idea to get out and make those in-person connections.
