Are you prospecting or networking?

At a speednetworking event recently I introduced myself to one of the other attendees. He had three different business cards for himself and gave one of those to me. I asked why that particular one & he said "That's the service most relevant for you to buy"

I asked about one of the other cards & he said "That's a service for Corporates so not for you"

Nothing wrong with representing different businesses in different networks. It may, however, be more effective in the long run to look for others with clients & contacts in similar markets to you. Then build relationships with them as an ongoing route to market rather than look for one off prospects.

At Networking Events are you looking for opportunities to build your network or for prospects?

Good Networking!
