Many times the difference between success and failure in a home business lies in doing the little things. Today we all tend to get lazy because the Internet makes it so it easy to build our businesses. One thing that has not changed over time however, is the importance of incorporating networking into your home business.
Here are a few overlooked ways that you can merge networking in your home business to achieve the results you are looking for.
1. Today many people have a blog, but they are not using it to its fullest capabilities. One way that you can interact more with your readers is to invite them to post comments.
This is not all that unusual and you probably have seen people making comments on other people’s blogs. One step that I do not see home business owners take however is to personally email the people who take the time to post comments in their blogs.
I’m not talking about “commenting” on their comments, but rather I am talking about sending a individual email thanking someone for taking the time to make a post on your blog. From a networking standpoint the results of taking this one little step can be staggering.
Oftentimes the people who will buy a product from you, or join your home business, are the ones who you get to know on a individual basis. This can be difficult to do because as Internet marketers we tend to hide behind our websites and email accounts.
Networking is where you get to know people on a personal level and provide merit and benefits to each other. One little thing like sending an email to a blog post could create a lifelong business relationship.
2. Another important step that I see people overlook is taking the time to reply to the emails they receive. It is very easy to get busy on the day-to-day activities of building an Internet business and forget about networking.
If someone takes the time to send you an email, and ask you a question, this should be one of the most important things you do that day. I am not talking about wasting your time on generic questions either.
Hopefully your website has a frequently asked questions section where people can get answers on some of the easiest questions. But for more detailed questions you should take the time to reply to those honestly and to the best of your ability.
These are two overlooked ways that you can merge networking and your home business that could pay off for you in the future.
