Summary

Over the last few decades, networking has devolved into an endless series of cattle call events full of open bars and closed fists. Perfect strangers, after a long day at the office, agree to show up and bump into each other, randomly exchanging business pitches for business cards. Needless to say, traditional networking isn't working anymore. For successful 21st century business people, large networking events and the mountains of business cards they produce have become a waste of time and valuable resources. It's time for a new, modern approach to networking. Born out of author Derek Coburn's frustration with having spent thousands of fruitless hours attending traditional networking events, this book offers fresh, effective, unconventional strategies for growing and nurturing a powerful network. These strategies grew Coburn's revenue by 300% in just 18 months and can have a major impact on your business. You will learn how to:


Become the Ultimate Connector
Become the Ultimate Resource
Identify and develop relationships with world-class professionals
Enhance the value you deliver for your best clients
Position yourself for more quality introductions to ideal prospective clients.
Once you implement the networking strategies in this audiobook, the quality of your clients, your business, and your life will improve dramatically.

For building a client base

I give this 3.5 stars. Some of the actions aren't for the average person, like inviting a diverse group of highly successful professionals to a lunch (your own network event) to meet other successful individuals and help each other in their careers and businesses. Most of the actions are for building a client base, such as getting to know a wide variety of experts (a good accountant or a good attorney) so you can refer them to people in your network when they are in need of such services. They'll remember your help and the person who gained a new client may refer new clients to your business. Also, you can make it easy for your network to recommend you by sending an email indicating if they know someone in need of (trigger event like getting married or having a baby), you can assist by providing (a value like financial planning services). Your friends and network connections aren't thinking about the work you do. But by identifying the trigger events, they might know someone in those situations, which will trigger them to think of you for the service you mentioned.
