You’ll typically meet a lot of people at the average networking event, so who should you be looking out for to get the best value from every event you attend.  It may not be exactly who you think….

  1. Some of them will be nice people that you enjoy meeting
  2. Sadly a few of them may be the kind of people who just want to sell you something.
  3. Some of them will have some knowledge or information they can help you with.
  4. Some of them will be in need of some knowledge or information that you can help them with.
  5. There may be someone who can introduce you to someone who can help you.
  6. Or you may be able to help someone with an introduction to someone in your network.
  7. You may find someone that sells something you want or need.
  8. You may even find someone in need of your products or services.
  9. However the most valuable people you will ever meet at a networking event are the people who share your target market and who are open to the idea of exploring ways you may be able to help one another. 

After all which would you prefer to meet:

  • A potential client OR
  • A potential alliance or referral partner who may be able to connect you with tens or even hundreds of potential clients.

It’s a no brainer isn’t it?
