Offline networking opportunities

4 May 2009

Networking on the Internet doesn't need much time and can be done in a spare 5 minutes or on a lunch break from work.

Although the Internet is ever growing and online networking is easy to do - it is also important to carry out offline networking.

By offline networking I mean getting out of the office and going to local networking events. Meeting people in person, giving them an element of trust and building a business relationship.

Offline networking would require business cards, promoting yourself through talks and meetings, and even maybe calling up a few people or carrying out some cold calling.

Offline networking is just as important as online networking as you will actually be meeting your potential clients and forming a business relationship. This may also later lead to referrals and good testimonials.
