Interesting what can happen when you keep an open mind and make connections by networking with new people you meet. The most unlikely person may be able to provide you with a lead or opportunity to exponentially grow your business if you just take the time to get to know them a little bit more. And don’t just get to know their business; you find out what they are all about, what their passion in life is, where they live, what activities they participate in, their likes and dislikes.
Connect on a personal level and you will be surprised at how people respond to you. People like attention and like to talk about themselves when asked to do so. If you show interest and truly listen to them, you will find golden nuggets of opportunity that pop up for you. This is what happened to me this week at a conference I was at. See the video below to learn about how I benefited from just getting to know someone new:
One more thing, after you have gotten to know your new connection, make absolutely positively sure you find out if there is anyway you can be of help to them in their business or lives in general. Even if you cannot, the person will appreciate it and more often or not, reciprocate with a way they can help you. Pretty cool when it happens.
You can make this strategy a way to build leads for your business just by using it at networking events in your region. Spend the time at a networking event just meeting people and asking about them. Listen closely and bring a note book if you have trouble remembering details of conversations. I am confident you will come away from such an event with more positive leads and information than you ever did before by employing this “get to know them better” strategy.
