The Art of Networking – Is your networking working?

Has anyone ever said to you. “If there is anything I can do to help with your business, let me know?” And your response was “Thank you. Now that you mention it, there are a few things that I need?” Or did you say. “Well, thanks, I’ll let you know.”
If you’re like most of us, you aren’t prepared to accept help the moment it is offered. Before you can do so, you have to make the connection between specific items or services you need and the people who can supply them.
Systematic referral marketing helps you do that by determining as precisely as possible the types help you want and need.
