Are you networking with the right people?
You’re one business partner away from making a million dollars.
Seriously! The relationships, the money and the friendships I’ve made over the years from attending LIVE EVENTS have shaped my entire life.
If you model what successful people do, you will become successful...
We’re all about working with very certain people, select people. Who do YOU really want to work with?
At It Factor LIVE we’re all about working with thought-leaders and people that really are in-line with our values, which is to empower others, to serve, to make the world a better place.
In fact, I wanted to share 9 Reasons why you should be networking with the right people:
1. Generate Referrals
This is probably the most obvious benefit and the reason most entertainment entrepreneurs decide to participate in networking activities.
The great news is that the referrals that you get through networking are normally high quality and most of the time are even pre-qualified for you. You can then follow up on these referrals/leads and turn them into clients. So you are getting much higher quality leads from networking than other forms of marketing.
The increase in business from networking is the major advantage, but there are many others as well.
With a motivated group of entrepreneurs and speakers like you’ll meet at IFL, comes an abundance of opportunities! There are always lots of opportunities that come from networking and in fact this is where the benefits of business networking are huge!
Opportunities like joint ventures, gig leads, partnerships, business or asset sales… the list goes on, and the opportunities within networking are really endless.
Business networking can benefit your business in so many ways
“It’s not WHAT you know, but WHO you know”. This is so true in show business – MORE SO THAN ANYWHERE ELSE! If you want a really successful show business, then you need to have a great source of relevant connections in your network that you can call on when you need them.
Networking provides you with a great source of connections, and really opens the door to talk to highly influential people that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to easily talk to or find.
It’s not just about who you are networking with directly either – that person will already have a network you can tap into as well. So ask the right questions to find out if the person you are networking with knows who you want to know!
Having like-minded entertainment business owners to talk to also gives you the opportunity to get advice from them on all sorts of things related to your business or even your personal life and obtaining that important work-life balance.
Networking is a great way to tap into advice and expertise that you wouldn’t otherwise be able to get hold of. Just make sure you are getting solid advice from the right person – someone that actually knows about what you need to know and is not just giving you their opinion on something that they have no or very little experience in. That’s why at IFL – you can rest assured that you are networking with ONLY SERIOUS ENTERTAINERS – no “armchair critics” or “debbie downers!”
5. Raising Your Profile
Being visible and getting noticed is a big benefit of networking. You are also more likely to get more leads and referrals as you will be the one that pops into their head when they need what you offer.
6. Positive Influence
The people that you hang around with and talk to – DO influence who you are and what you do, so it is important to be surrounding yourself with positive, uplifting people that help you to grow and thrive as a business owner.
7. Increased Confidence
By going to events that attract the right people (like It Factor LIVE), and pushing yourself to talk to those you don’t know, you will get increased confidence the more you do this. This is really important as a entrepreneur and entertainer, because your business growth is very dependent on talking to people and making connections.
8. Satisfaction from Helping Others
It Factor LIVE Networking is full of business owners, entrepreneurs, and entertainers that have problems or issues within their business that need solving, and there is great satisfaction from helping someone to solve a problem they have and get a fantastic result from it.
Perhaps you have been “there” and experienced “that,” and you can share your story to help others save time, wasted money and frustration… and chances are you’ll get the same in return – from another IFL attendee.
Many friendships form as a result of networking because (mostly) you are all like-minded business owners, entrepreneurs, and entertainers that want to grow your businesses, and you meet and help each other regularly, so naturally strong friendships tend to form.
HONESTLY – some of my strongest friendships have been started from going to events like It Factor LIVE. EVERY SPEAKER on our IFL Stage is there as a result of the friendship we formed at a LIVE EVENT.
