Ep 108. Introvert’s guide to successful networking

Do you prefer quiet corners to crowded rooms full of chit chatting business owners? Me too, but referral marketing, affiliates and authentic connections are all back in abundance after the unspeakable blip on the radar (i.e. the Covid era).

If you’re anything like me, you breathe a sigh of sweet relief if you can hide behind a computer or phone screen rather than face the daunting reality of any situation that puts you in the spotlight.

But here’s the reality. In a world saturated with noise and lacklustre marketing, authentic connections are like gold. People trust people, not pushy sales pitches. So, it's time to embrace networking as a powerful tool for building brand awareness from the ground up.

Feeling overwhelmed by the thought of networking? Don't worry, I've got you covered.

Here are my tried and tested tips to boost your confidence:

  • Give yourself some quiet time before and after the event to recharge
  • Reach out to the host beforehand to ease any awkwardness
  • Arrive early to avoid the stress of being late
  • Prepare some conversation starters to keep things flowing smoothly
  • Practice your elevator pitch until it rolls off the tongue effortlessly
  • Focus on one key offer or service to avoid overwhelming potential connections
  • Don't forget your gorgeous business cards!
  • And above all, approach networking with the intention of giving, not just selling

Yes, networking can be daunting, especially for introverts. But remember, growth lies beyond your comfort zone. So, listen to this episode to arm yourself with my networking tips for introverts and dive into your next business event with confidence.
