BWFR Networking Guidelines
We recommend you to read the following guidelines
before your participation in BWFR events & networking.
BWFR philosophy is built upon the idea of
"the more you give, the better you gain".
Pure networking is not only about meeting people and telling them
about your business, but also HELPING your network in achieving
their goals, by offering them new referrals.
Creating your active network shall lead to actual “salespeople”
who are working for you on a constant basis, supporting you in
promoting your business… but the only way to achieve it is by
doing the same for them.
The BWFR model offers you the opportunity to share ideas, potential contacts, active networks and most importantly, business referrals.
We achieve that by helping you build personal 1:1 relationships with other qualified business professionals from all kinds of domains.
Building a successful business takes a lot of time, effort and drive, so it’s good to have a large network of friends, colleagues, and associates to draw energy from and to keep you going on your way to success.
By surrounding yourself with other businesswomen who share a similar drive and ambition, you are more likely to move forward as a group and inspire each other for better results.
Successful networking requires commitment.
In order to build a truly successful network, you shall be sincerely committed to helping one another through networking, the same way as if you were a team.
How to be prepared for a BWFR networking meeting?
In order to reach the best results and remain efficient in your networking meetings, we recommend the following steps:
✓ Business cards - Prepare a large number of your business cards
✓Be on time - Do not be late to the meeting, do not leave before the networking session is finished – both can create the wrong impression
✓ Invest in your appearance – the first impression always helps!
✓ Short info - Practice your 1-minute presentation – prepare to talk shortly about your business
✓ Short demand – direct the listener to what kind of clients you are looking for, be specific and you will get what you need
To complete the circle, make sure to:
✓ Arrange and organize all your business cards
✓ Add your new contacts to your LinkedIn network
✓ Follow up by a friendly email and invite them to keep in touch
✓ Support your network with referrals, the more, the better, to bring you the same results!
✓ Recommend your business fellows to join our free network.
