I just thought Id say a few words on the importance of physical “networking” to go along with your online marketing strategy. As I have become more and more successful online, I had actually forgotten the importance of meeting real people. I have recently launched a new venture, which actually, whilst has an ongoing residual income that mirrors my 100% online businesses, this new venture actually requires me meeting people face to face. So we have assigned some marketing time… or Networking time… and I can say not only am I really enjoying it, its opened up some great avenues. Forget the immediate impact of positive cash, (customers).. that will take time.. what’s it has allowed me to do is network with people who offer services I require.. e.g., book keepers, accountants, photographers, copywriters, business card printers etc etc. Allowing me to tap into such services with people I like. to find one of the many networking events in your area, Google, “Business Networking Event XXXX” replacing the XXXX with your town or county. Many of these events are free for at least 2 visits, allowing you to get a flavour of the set up!!
