If you want to build a successful business, then you need to get out and network.
Here are 3 tips to help you get started in networking to build your business:

The first tip is to make a list of local networking events to attend.
Look for events in your local area, register to attend and then add the events to your calendar.
When you arrive at the event, have a plan. Decide who you want to meet and take time to walk around and meet new people.

After an event, there is a narrow window of opportunity to follow up with the people you meet. Block time on your calendar to make calls to everyone you met. Be prepared to talk over the phone or leave a message. The sooner you call, the more likely they will remember you.
