What is Networking?
For a lot of people “networking” has a negative connotation. They link networking with the “old boy’s network”. And they are not entirely wrong. What’s a pity though is that at the same time they tend to overlook the positive side of networking.
Networking has become the most popular and successful form of marketing of the current time. Meeting more people on a regular basis builds a trust which solid business relationships are then built. Once that relationship is in place, loyalty is built between the people and they then pass solid referrals between contacts which adds more business to the contact sphere.
