5 Reasons To Network With Multiple Industries
Published On : 2017-06-21
Naturally we may think we will only benefit from networking directly within our own industry, after all, why would connecting with people from other industries have any impact on the way we do business? Surprisingly, this has proven to be wrong and there are many advantages in interacting with professionals from diverse sectors.
1. Think Outside The Box
There are secrets to be learned from different leading professionals. Knowing about other industries can provide a whole new view on how our products or services might be used, or what needs there are out there that you have never even considered going after. Have your eyes opened by new networks of people and you could see huge opportunity that you never knew of before.
2. Expand That Customer Base
Networking with people from other sectors can boost your sales! Broaden your customer base by encouraging people to talk about your product and brand, and getting noticed far and wide.
3. Get In Touch Using Your Network
Be intriguing and generous with your posts and communications - helping others is key to networking. Then use the broad network of contacts across all industry types to get in touch with who you really want to know. Use the professional relationships you develop for great references in the future, or as a means to get in contact with great influencers.
4. Attract Unique Talent
Having a wide, diverse network of professionals means you have access to a huge pool of talent and knowledge. Looking for new recruits? Use your connections to hunt and attract great expertise to your workplace.
5. Build Real Relationships
When meeting potential clients or making deals with new suppliers, get their interest by referring to mutual contacts or current events happening in their industry. They will value the real interest you take in them, and make business easy for you.
