Every single business owner should in my opinion actively utilize business networking, if for no other reason than the simple fact that it helps you generate revenue which leads to profits and let’s face it, that’s one of the main aims of business.

The amount of profit a business generates is often used as a measurement indicator of how successful a business is, and everyone in business strives for a strong bottom line. Business networking can and will strengthen that bottom line, it’s a necessity in business, and it’s rarely optional.

And while networking can help your business financially, there are a myriad of other ways that building relationships with other businesses within and outside of your target market can positively benefit your business.

Business networking can help you stand out and get noticed in the marketplace, as people will come to know you and how active you are in the business community, giving you a distinct advantage over other businesses.

Making the effort to create mutually beneficial relationships will increase your perceived authority in your market, and those who are looking for what you offer will be drawn to both your expertise and your presence. Increasing your perceived authority will allow you to raise your prices, especially if you are in the consulting, coaching, or mentoring arena.

Building your arsenal of suppliers, service providers, and/or contractors is another great benefit of networking. Whether you run a retail business selling physical products, or a service-providing business, it always helps to have others in the know when you need to find a different product, supplier, or provider. Even if you don’t come into direct contact with these types, having contacts who do have these names and numbers will help your business too!

Once you start participating in business networking groups or events, you’ll quickly learn which are beneficial to you and a complete waste of your time. You’ll learn to avoid those that don’t offer your business any real value, and you’ll learn to pay even more attention to those that do. Volunteering to help out at these types of events will get you in contact with the most people, and will show a gesture of goodwill to the event presenters. Who will often repay this in ways that help promote your business.

At first, attending networking events might seem uncomfortable, but those feelings will quickly disappear as you become a more adept networker and as people get to know you. Your confidence will increase and you’ll be able to interact with others much more naturally. Successful networking can be a learned skill and is a very worthwhile skill to pursue, one that can only benefit your business for years and years to come.

Business networking today, can be seen as a way to increase your business contacts, customers, clients, colleagues or providers, as well as giving you a wealth of information and advice through the fellowship of other business owners. Networking will raise your authority level with others, and can be considered a necessary part of business today.

About Me

I've been designing and marketing websites and businesses for over 24 years and prior to this I worked in sales, marketing and big business for almost 18 years... which makes me not only old, but also highly experienced at this marketing and Internet stuff.  I've won lots of awards and helped thousands of people, and this website is a testament to the information I share freely to help others succeed online.

When I'm not designing websites, doing this online marketing stuff or writing. I love nothing more than getting out on a weekend and scuba diving. I'm a qualified rescue diver and love getting wet in the waters around Perth and Rottenest Island. I also cycle, which must be a sight as I'm not the thinnest of people (lol)... and a paddle on a kayak or a swim helps makes most weeks, perfect. At home I have a marine reef tank, which I just love and on top of that I've an awesome dog, called Ziggy.

What Can I Do For You?

I can work with you to design a website and marketing strategy that actually works. You'll get a website that looks fantastic but also attracts and engages your potential customers, helping generate leads, sales and profits.

What Will It Cost ?

A discussion about your requirements is completely free of charge.

Solutions are tailored to meet your budget and success goals as much as possible, and websites have been delivered costing just a few hundreds dollars a month or for one of payments of a few thousand... it all comes down to our discussions, if you want a website that generates millions of dollars in sales your budget will obviously be bigger, if you're a small business then your goals and costs will be more realistic, at least to start with.
