Network Marketing Events

 

This article is to give you some directions of what to do at Network Marketing Events.

I have attended several network marketing events since 2010. I began attending these events through invitations of some of my business colleagues who found a strong interest in my business activity. They sought to offer me an opportunity to grow my business by sharing my offerings with others. I was truly excited with this opportunity. I knew my businesses were about to soar to the next level. I envisioned large engagement from others just because I was there. In my mind, the endorsement I received through the  event planners was a home run.

I had great success at the event meeting new people, collecting business cards, and sharing my business. I have since learned some strategic points about networking events.

  • Help event planners promote their events. Event planning is work! The success of an event hinders on its promotion, planning, and attendance.
  • Support the event. The day of the event can be just as demanding as its planning stages. Event planners are tasked with syncing organization from set-ups with vendors, facility coordination, and simply keeping things in their professional order. The future of other events is always leveraged to the success of the current event. Help out if you can!

Build Relationships.  It is of our nature to be excited about what we have to offer.

Don’t Throw Up on people. Take the time to get to know them. Share an interest in what they have to offer.

Create Alliances. Listen and not overly talk. There could be a possibility to collaborate with someone and possibliy embrace a partnership.

Referral Marketing. Don’t be selfish that you are the only one that has the next best thing since sliced bread. There are others who have great products, businesses, and services like you. Help promote them and I am sure you  will find that they will promote you.

Lastly, The Follow Up. You will meet a lot of people on the day of the event. You will collect a lot of business cards. You will hopefully engage in many conversations. As you speak to people, take their business card and write a mental note about that person or the conversation.  I challenge you to try to remember every person you speak with and every detail. Create a system to help you when you reach out to connect with them after the event. I personally use video email, which has proven very effective for me. Put forth the effort to follow up with individuals at least 24-48 hours after the event when memories are still fresh.

These are just a couple of points I wanted to share. I hope that it will help you with your next Network Marketing Event experience.

I am an Indiana based Christian, Husband, Father, and prior Us Air Force Veteran. I originally began my marketing career in the 1990′s as I embraced a joint opportunity with my parents in support of their marketing efforts with a major corporation. I secured a distributorship and worked it sparingly. My activities were more focused on the indirect mentoring I was receiving through them from some of the big leaders in the business. Being connected to my parents success positioned me to meet great people of leadership. It was exciting for me to see the lifestyles they lived as they traveled all over the world sharing their success and implanting dreams, visions, and possibilities in the lives of others. I too saw the chance to diverse and secure my family’s future. I later independently changed direction trying my skills at offering various products and services with some success. What I discovered was that there are others just like me that were looking for a “niche” to attract others of interest to add value in their lives. In 2010, I came to the realization that people weren’t just looking for “stuff” and those that had “stuff” were looking for “solutions”. People are seeking the most effective means of presenting an offering. People want to know “how” to market. People want to become successful in their efforts.(whatever success means to them) The balance in that equation is not just self gratification, It becomes of value when you can help others. I realized that it is of my God given gift to be of purpose to others. I realized that there are Great People in the world whom are doing Great Things. I have had the privilege to meet several of them. It delights my spirit to be remembered and valued as one of those people. So there came about a paradigm shift within me….. I have channeled into areas of marketing that I feel are good resources to help empower people. Along with those resources I offer my consulting and advisement as a result of the training and knowledge that I have received over my tenure in marketing and promoting. I engage with Business to Business groups I support local companies and organizations I support non for profit groups I support help organizations I collaborate with individuals and companies assisting with promotions, advertising, and branding I recognize people,companies, and groups whom are making a difference in the world right now. Simply Put….I Care…..I am Concerned… I am Sincere….I will take Action Three things: 1. Building Relationships Embracing the opportunity to take the time to get to know who people are and what they have to offer. 2. Creating Alliances To not be bias or prejudice against other offerings if they have merit, good intent, and integrity. 3. Referral Marketing To jointly assist others in promoting good products and services that could be a benefit to someone 4.Living Life to Make a Difference in the world To leave a lasting impression on someone that life for them became better as a result of knowing me. The world is a very big place. There is room enough for us all to exist. We should help, support, and encourage to success. We should build up and not tear down. There is GREATNESS in us all….Let’s Embrace it! At the end of the day there are only (3) things that run through the minds of people when they meet you Who You Are…. What Do You Have… And, Why They Should Want It….. Be of Value To Others Much Success
