Networking Tips

Business networking is a necessity when building your business, and knowing why you should be networking and where are two of the most important elements you should work on before you rush around trying to network everywhere and anywhere.

Research the networking organizations and events out there and establish a strategy that works for you. This will save you time and money and you will become a consistent and effective networker.

Ultimatley, knowing people is an asset but more importantly, does anyone know you?

Great Things in Business Quote

The Small Business Community Network (SBCN) promotes working together, helping each other and being part  of a team. Networking is no different than anything else we do in life, we can't do it all alone, and this quote says it better than I can:


If You Are Not Networking, You Are Not Working

Tip of the day, networking leads to many opportunities. Consistent networking ensures your brand recognition will increase, you connections will get to know, like and trust you, and your referrals will double.

How Many People Do You Need to Build a Successful Business?

How many people/employees does it take to build a successful business over a period of 11 years? In the case of the Small Business Community Network (SBCN) it has taken 2 people, who give back to the small business community by working diligently to ensure the SMB's get the help they need.

Those 2 people both have their own small businesses and one of them also works full time for a large global organization, so between them they own & run 3 businesses and work full time for an organization! No small feat.
