Gene Marks writes a monthly Penny Pincher Tips newsletter for small businesses. This month’s newsletter outlines 10 places or ways to network for business, quoted courtesy of Jeffrey Gitomer, author of The Sales Bible.
The list contains many of the usuals. Chamber of commerce events and organizations like Rotary are on there.
But one unusual networking tip one caught my eye:
Parents of your children’s friends
If you have a big prospect whose kid plays ball in the same league as your kid, you’ll have a big advantage to make him a big customer.
This tip is brilliant for Americans. We’re a nation obsessed with scheduling our children for sporting events and getting actively involved in their activities. On a selective basis it can be a good way to network.
