Tampa, FL (Sept. 8, 2015) – Wonder if your networking is, well, working? Networking has rapidly become a widely used business practice but the reality is that not everyone networks equally. Networking can be risky business for your business if you make common mistakes. Fortunately, those missteps can be easily avoided.
Recognizing business owners may need help to become effective networkers, Tampa’s Tiffanie Kellog recently published a comprehensive guide designed to help entrepreneurs to experienced executives maximize – and mistake-proof – their networking efforts.
The book, “4 1/2 Networking Mistakes: Maximize Your Networking Efforts by Avoiding Common Mistakes,” provides helpful tips, tools and techniques that can make networking more fun and more financially rewarding.
“Make more money for your business in less time by creating referrals for life,” according to the book jacket.
“4 1/2 Networking Mistakes is perfect for business professionals, owners, entrepreneurs and sales managers interested in learning more about how to build their businesses through networking and referral marketing,” said Kellog. “This book explores how to have success when networking by making it more time effective and creating better results.”
Among the insights Kellog offers are the following:
- Why you may not want to pass out business cards while networking
- How your name tag may be hurting – not helping – at events
- Why your elevator pitch should never be used when meeting someone for the first time
- Why networking alone won’t help to grow your business
