6 Keys to Success in Business Networking
To be great in business networking, you have to build the attitude of a giver.

The more you help others, the more people you will attract into your connections and your network will grow.
Show Respect to Others
Business networking is not about making money but it’s all about giving and receiving respect from other individuals. Your respect for others should not be based on net worth or wealth. But regardless of their financial position, you have to listen and give attention to everyone in your connection. The more you keep respect for others, the more you will receive.
Keep the Consistent Contact and Communication
Strong business networking is not about just meeting once in a year but it’s about keeping yourself with the network in consistent touch and informed. Keeping constant contact through calls, social media, emails, etc will keep your network together and fresh.
Respect Other People Time
Time is more important than money and so in business relations, you have to keep yourself on schedule. Always show yourself sooner than expected time and this will grow your respect and trust with your network. When you don’t respect and care for time, people will take for you non-serious, and they will always try to avoid your company.
Plan Adventures and Celebrate
Planning small wins celebrations, business trips, gatherings, seminars, etc, will help better understanding and personal relationship building. Presenting yourself with a gift at your network special moments like birthday, weddings, etc will place, for you, a lot of respect in their hearts.
