When it comes down to it, many businesses will shy away from networking, either because they’re not exactly sure of what they will get out of it, or just because they don’t see it as a priority. However, we know that networking is an invaluable tool for any business, whether you’re a local start-up or a large multinational company. Our attitude at Word Gets Around is that we are stronger together, and for that reason we feel that it’s important for local businesses to make the most of each other by meeting up and talking business.
You can’t start your own business without being smart, creative and driven. Having lots of these like-minded people together in one room can spark some amazing ideas and help our businesses grow. In a friendly, relaxed environment, we can open discussions and share great tips that can raise business profiles and help them develop.
Mornings can be hectic, especially if you’re a parent who’s also running a business, so evening meetings work well for people who have to juggle work and family life during the day. They’re also a wonderful way to get together with similar-minded people and have a good time while absorbing information and skills to help you along the road to a successful business.
All good businesses want to share what they have learnt on their own journey with people in a similar position, as well as people with brand new start-ups. Whether you’re just starting out or have a lot of knowledge and experience, we all have useful tips and info that we can share to help each other with whatever problems we’re facing. This is where networking really comes into it’s own, as we can all learn from each other and create lasting business relationships that will be valuable even outside of the meeting room.
Regular networking meetings can help to create strong business solidarity in the local area and provide a support network for local businesses, to lend skills and help when needed and to thrive together. Not to mention the real life friendships that come from this as a result!
