The 6 steps of Business Connecting

Step 1: You – Discover your networking style
We will look at your natural networking style, way of communicating and social media use. This step is about you!

Step 2: Your Story – Create your authentic brand story We will dive into the story behind your expertise and your business until we find the purpose, cause or belief which is the foundation of your authentic brand story.

Step 3: Audience – Reach and engage with your target audience We are going to check out different informational resources of your target audience and with the help of creating personas find the best ways to address them in order to find previously undetected opportunities.

Step 4: Contacts – Build a quality network of relevant contacts
We are going to look at your first, second and third degree contacts. The focus will be on discovering the ones that are relevant for what you want to achieve. You will learn how you can tap into the power of your network.

Step 5: Online Visibility – Increase your visibility with suitable online marketing material There are many online platforms where you can introduce yourself. The question is where and how do you want to position yourself.  You will get to know and work with the best, free, easy-to-use tools for making visuals, videos and more in order to start, maintain and grow your audience and you will work on an online visibility plan.

Step 6: Offline Visibility – Connect authentically at events and while presenting You can go to networking events to talk about your expertise or business or decide to organise an event yourself. This step we will go through the essentials of in-person networking, unforgettable presentations and conscious event organising.
