Your Network Is Your Net-worth
It’s often said in business that it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. This couldn’t be truer for sales professionals.
Heck, why am I creating videos like these?
- To entertain and inform you, the audience so that you get to know me personally and will spend money with us at some distant point in the future.
- So I can mix with influencers and the industry leaders like Jon in this particular video.
The more time I spend around people who know people, the more money Salesman.Red seems to bring in through our brand partnerships.
The more I network, the bigger the guests seem to be who actively request to come on the Salesman Podcast.
“Your Network Is Your Net-worth” – Jon Ferrara
I’m convinced that the more people I connect with (and stay in touch with) on a regular basis the more deals I will close.
Customer Relationship Management
I don’t really need a “CRM”, what I need is a social contact management system and that’s exactly what I get from Nimble.com.
If you’re not ready to spend money on tracking, improving and scaling your network then a simple spreadsheet will do as long as you head back into it regularly and update when/who you have spoken with.
The tools are less important than –
- Understanding the importance of building a solid business network
- Taking the action (and overcoming the fears of networking) to build it in the first place
Are you plodding along or are you activity trying to build your network every single day?
