Why should you join a business network?

Connections

Remember you are not just gaining exposure to the people in the room, you are building connections with their network too. If someone they know has a need that matches your business, if you have made an impression, you will likely get a referral. And remember it’s not just a one-way street. If someone in your network matches a business you encounter at an event, don’t hesitate to share their details. It will only strengthen your relationship.

Opportunities

It’s natural that networking will result in opportunities. The thing you will not know is when or how they will materialise. Whether it’s a referral, offer partnership or request for your service or product, it is important to be ready to seize opportunities when they come along.

Shared Knowledge

Networking is great for sharing ideas and knowledge. Whether it’s asking for feedback or discussing your point of view, it will help you expand your knowledge and allow you to see things from another perspective. It is also likely that within a group there will be those who have already been where you are today. This provides you with an opportunity to learn and avoid some of the common pitfalls they experienced.

I have to share my experience as a member at Let’s Network Bloem Business Club, aspiring and early-stage startup founders meet once a month to hear candid talks by successful local entrepreneurs with exceptional expertise. Members learn the best practices, strategies, and mistakes to avoid from those who have been there, done that. Then, if you’d like, you can share your ideas and plans in a relaxed setting to get personal and professional feedback. Due to my deafness, I have numerous communication challenges and Sanet van Heerden and Marie-Louise Smith are doing there utmost best to accommodate me so that I have the opportunity to be integrated with dedicated hearing professionals in a hearing environment. If they could do this for me, imagine how much opportunities are there for you to become knowledgeable in a learning environment. I salute Let’s Network Bloem Business Club. Bloemfontein has highly successful business owners such as last night’s presentation on the important theme of Social Media by the national and international well-known Diederik Van Niekerk.
