Do you have a Networking Strategy?
If you’re like me you may have written marketing strategies, sales strategies or proposition strategies. But I’ve never once thought about a networking strategy.
My guest on Episode 9 of the Marketing Protection and Finance Podcast is Andy Lopata.
Andy argues that whether it’s for individual career development, business generation or simply for getting the job done, networking is an increasingly vital tool for business.
But you need to take a strategic approach to it.
Hear how you can put together a networking strategy that will help to grow your business. And listen to how you can weave successful referrals into that networking.
