When you have a hectic schedule, the last thing you want to do is waste your time at a networking event that wasn’t worth your time. Different networking events give you different kinds of leads and you want to make sure that you are showing up at the right ones. Here are some types of events that can get you the leads you need to grow your business:
Guest Speaker Gatherings
If you come across an event that has a speaker that is related to your industry, GO! These types of events bring like-minded business owners that you can connect with that can lead you to new networks or allow you to build partnerships. Also, by hearing from experts in your field, you may learn tips and strategies that can help you grow even more.
These types of events are great because they allow you to meet professionals in a comfortable setting. People that go to these events are willing to listen to what you have to offer while enjoying a morning meal. Think about it like this, you are their first pitch of the day before their stressful work day hits, that will give you a better opportunity for a lead.
After-Work Meet Up groups
Schedule some time to go to gatherings after work hours so you have time to unwind while you network with potential clients or partners. Join groups that meet on the weekends or take part in your favorite hobbies so you can enjoy yourself, too. These events are known for being laid back with casual talk, so it is the perfect setting to make new connections with your professional skills.
