Are you a “Notable Networker”? Dr. Ivan Misner explains how to build a word-of-mouth business
Dr. Ivan Misner, Founder of BNI (Business Networking Institute), says that Notable Networkers are people who are skilled at networking and committed to the idea that givers gain. By helping other businesses get new clients or customers, they get new business sent their way.
Ivan goes on to say that the key to building a word-of-mouth-based business is mutual support, not necessarily friendship, so a Notable Networker must have a positive and supportive attitude. For some, networking is an acquired skill; it requires listening to CDs, reading books and articles, talking to people who network well, and practicing what you’ve learned. Becoming a Notable Networker requires practice, practice, practice–and then more practice.
More of Ivan’s networking teachings are found in the Marketing Online “Audio Vault”, which contains over a thousand hours of downloadable audio interviews conducted Alex Mandossian. They’re just one of the many benefits of Marketing Online membership.
