In the world of business we always hear words like Marketing, Networking, sphere of influence. These words sometimes trigger a plethora of thoughts. How do I obtain a “sphere of influence”? What tools do I need to “network” What does “marketing” mean? No doubt, many of us feel overwhelmed in a world of social media and we may say to ourselves….I’ll put it out on facebook…I’ll tweet about it or I will join LinkedIn.
These are all great tools for getting the word out there however, there are also other places to Network, market and build a sphere of influence. When I first started in the world of marketing I knew a few people in the so called business, but not enough. I knew I had to get out there and meet people get to know them. learn who they knew and build my own sphere of influence. How you may ask? I got involved with great organizations within my business such as WCR. Through these contacts I met more great people who helped me gain knowledge and relationships. I learned about home tours and UCAR and found that there were so many people I didn’t know. I have recently joined a BNI group that meets once a week for the purpose of helping to build business. One of the best benefits of joining and participating in these groups and organizations is that while you do meet more people and increase your sphere of influence and learn how to market better. you make great friends and as you get to know them they also get to know you. Please don’t think I’m not a fan of social media it has a great influence in business, but never underestimate good old fashioned face- to- face, one-on-one people meeting people.
I’m so grateful to the people who invited, informed, and allowed me to help each other build our business.-Cherri Gressemen; Orem Office.
