Networking - A WONDERFUL Low/No-Cost Way to Promote Your Business...
As always, Business After Hours was chock full of fun and wonderful people. We met new friends and visited with older new friends, all the while exchanging business cards!
There are few better low/no-cost ways to promote your small business than good, old-fashioned networking!
After all, we met Jan at last month’s gathering and ended up on the roof of the mall taking pictures of fireworks a couple of weeks ago.
Johnny and I met Heidi Dudley from Allstate, who also has her own small business, Heidi’s Customized Pet Care & Cleaning Services. Because Heidi’s an animal lover like Johnny and I are, we hit it off immediately. We exchanged business cards and I took several of hers, as I know many pet owners who are looking for a means to look after their babies while they are away!
We also met Lynn and Dean, from Murphy’s Place. They are a really nice couple. Now, Murphy’s Place is where our Business Builder’s group meets twice monthly, and the food there is nothing less than outstanding! The atmosphere is comfortable, location is great, and service is friendly. If you get a chance to swing by 100 N. Center St. in Goldsboro, Wall 2 Wall Photography HIGHLY recommends Murphy’s Place for your hunger needs. You will NOT be disappointed!
So after about 90 minutes of interacting with other small businesses in the county, Johnny and I walked away, once again, feeling like we had accomplished something. :)
This is going to be a quick blog, however, because I am in the process of putting together portfolio books for a trade show we’ll be attending in about 12 days, so the clock is most assuredly ticking! :)
In the meantime, the rest of you small business owners reading this…get out there and mingle and talk yourselves up! :)
Until Next Time….
