Networking is about interacting with people and engaging them for mutual benefit. Not only can this help you establish a new business or grow an existing one but you can be used as a tool for finding investors, customers, staff, suppliers and business partners. Remember you can also network online, through sites such as LinkedIn and Facebook. The more ways you can network, the more your business will benefit. Don’t forget that you need to refer business to people as well as expecting them to send work your way.
