Networking on LinkedIn
By Frank Agin
Although directed primarily to franchise brokers this white paper by
Frank Agin of AmSpirit has broad application for anyone looking to network for
business and sales contacts.
To be a successful franchise broker, you need to network yourself. Great
franchise brokering networking requires a multi-faceted attack. There is
structured networking like business-referral groups, trade association meetings
and other organizations. In addition, there are networking events, like trade
shows, business after-hours, and open houses. There is also free-form
networking, such as going to lunch with someone, meeting up for coffee or
hitting the golf course.
In the 21st century, however, there is another important facet to great
networking. This is taking advantage of social media, such as LinkedIn, Facebook
and Twitter. If you find that you shy away from networking on social media
applications like LinkedIn because you really don't understand how to make the
best use of it, read Networking On LinkedIn For The Successful Franchise Broker,
an article written by author, consultant and founder of the AmSpirit Business
Connections franchise opportunity, Frank Agin (firstname.lastname@example.org).
