Networking Opportunities

ARE YOU READY IN THE EVENT OF A RECESSION?

Don’t let your contacts get cold……Statistics show that the average person knows 250 people. That translates into 250 possible referrals per member in a group. Apply the math and the results will give a BRAG member exposure to 5,750 possible customers from members of their BRAG group, and this number doesn't include other contacts with other groups the member will meet.

According to "Network Statistics," nearly 60 percent of all new contacts are found through networking. Referrals generated from networking are 80 percent more effective than "Cold Calls." Networking can be extremely successful if you allow it to be, and is a learned skill that needs to be developed. In order to optimize networking skills, an individual must approach the opportunities with the right attitude.
