Endless stream of prospects.

Crystal: Sounds great, doesn’t it?

Sunshine: If you convert them to clients.

Crystal: That’s true.

Sunshine: So, how is networking going to help us have this endless stream of prospects?

Sunshine: So, are there things that we should be doing while we are networking? Or things that we should be looking out for? Like, what’s this video about?

Crystal: So, when you are trying to start networking, the most important thing for you to know is that not all of networking is created equal. Meaning there is some really good networking groups and some really bad networking groups. So, when you are looking to choose, number one, make sure it is a business focused group, okay? Because you want to make sure it is not a social group. That’s not what we are looking for here. We want to be able to refer business and receive referrals.

Number two, make sure that the structure of the meeting has an agenda and that there recording, you know, referrals and things of that nature. Number three, make sure you are going to receive an ROI from the networking event.
