5 Online Networking Mistakes You Are Making And How To FIX Them
By online entrepreneur & business coach, Biana Babinsky
Here are a few typical responses I get every time I recommend online networking
as a tool to increase the number of newsletter subscribers and clients:
"People with whom I network online are not interested in what I sell. I spend a
significant amount of time networking, and have absolutely nothing to show for it.
No one from any online forums has ever become a customer."
"I keep posting about my business every chance I get, but have no takers."
"I have spent months participating in discussion forums, but no one asked me about
my business, much less buy from me."
It's likely that you are making one of several common mistakes and you need to adjust
your strategy if you have been networking online for a while and are not getting
results. Are you making any of these mistakes?
- You Are Networking In The Wrong Forums. If your networking objective is to get
clients, you should network in forums and networking communities your potential
clients frequent. For example, if you are a business coach, you should network
in the communities frequented by your target market (business owners). If you are
frequenting a community created around your favorite book, you will have fun discussing
the book, but are not likely to generate new coaching clients.
- You Are Not Networking On A Regular Basis. If you are only networking when you
need to get clients, you are wasting your time. Networking is not a one-time action;
rather, it is a process of having others get to know you and building relationships
with them. You need to network continuously to raise your online visibility and
develop relationships with others.
- You Are Selling Instead Of Networking. Remember the person who said "I keep posting
about my business every chance I get, but have no takers." This person is not really
networking. Rather, he is selling his products and services instead of building
relationships. Networking is about creating awareness for your products, not blatantly
- You Are Not Providing Any Information About Your Business. While some people try
to sell their products more then they should, there are others who don't tell people
anything about their business when networking online. Remember, if people you are
networking with have no way of learning more about you and what business you are
in, they will not be able to do business with you.
How do you let others know about your business? Use a signature at the end of every
message you post when networking online. Make sure your signature contains some
information about your business and a link to your web site, so that everyone reading
your posts can learn more about you and your business.
- You Are Not Inviting People To Subscribe To Your Newsletter. The best signature
to use when you are networking online is to invite people reading your message to
subscribe to your newsletter. When they do, you can continue building relationships
even if you or they stop networking on the forum altogether.
Are you making any of the above mistakes when you are networking online? If you
are, make changes as soon as possible.
