How To Maximize Your Networking

As a restoration contractor, (or any business professional for that matter), networking at trade shows and events can be an important part of your sales and marketing plan. To make the most of your time (and valuable resources), we’ve compiled five brief but powerful tips to help you maximize your efforts so you can make the most impact while attending these events.

One tip, as outlined in the Cleanfax Magazine article, “5 Tips for Maximizing Your Networking Efforts,” written by Tim Miller, President of Business Development Associates, Inc., advises to think about what you are going to say ahead of time.

Some people have the ability to not only be naturally outgoing and fearless of approaching new people, but they can often speak off the cuff. For a majority of people, the idea of meeting people and striking up conversation can be downright difficult. By having a polished and prepared conversation opener that is compelling and draws your listener in, you can draw the listener in and setup the conversation for one that is meaningful and engaging.

And for those that have anxiety in these types of situations, knowing what you are going to say beforehand can give you that ounce of “sales courage” you need to start the conversation or be prepared when approached by someone else. For the person who is naturally outgoing, a polished opening can give that extra edge to really engage the prospect or potential business partner into listening more about your service.
