Starting a new business needs a good promotion. While others use digital marketing and advertising, this easy trick will save you a lot of cash.

Small business owners have discovered the perks of attending networking events. Not only can they start making good connections and build new relationships, they can learn a lot from the experienced ones as well.

Attending well-organized networking events every week, which typically hold 8 to 30 people, will give you opportunities to talk about other businesses where you could get a lot of ideas from. You can also share about your business and may end up building new partnerships.

Moreover, this is where referrals could get passed on which means you get to be referred by them too. People would usually trust a business that was referred to them over a business they’ve found online or in the phone book.

Here are some meeting tips you need to know:

1.Suit up

Since networking meetings usually have presentations, make sure you’re paying attention to what they are saying as well.

Try to meet at least 5 other people and exchange cards. 5 is a good number since you will have a better chance of remembering who they were as well as their businesses.

5.Follow–up
