Networking is not just about meeting people, it's about meeting the right people -- the people who can help you move your business or career forward.
Whether you're looking for referrals, word-of-mouth support, co-promotional opportunities, or just business advice, knowing how to build relationships and make the most of networking opportunities is key.
That's why Alignable and HubSpot teamed up to put together this The Business Marketing Crash Course. From events, to making connections, to turning those awkward coffees and lunches into productive relationship building, we're confident you'll get something out of this guide.
More specifically, you'll receive:
- How to say “no” to isolation and increase your relationships.
- The levels of networking connections and how to approach each as a newcomer.
- Building, engaging, and maintaining your network.
- The people, places, and things you need to grow your network.
- The Networking Funnel: optimizing your business at all stages.
- Much more about networking and how to customize it for you!
