I’ve been wondering what the best networking events are for me as a small business owner. I don’t know if there is a best route to take. I know there are many different paid options to choose from, especially groups that charge hundreds more than I am able to spend.
So, I guess that makes me ask others what free networking groups that have to recommend. Any of you out there have some recommendations? I know that there may be webinars that are informational, simple presentations that are downloadable for free, and more.
Maybe more of you are in Cincinnati where there are small groups that meet every now and then. Maybe they are more personal than financial, as in not having membership feels, but for the group you have to be invited. Maybe the expense for the group is that everyone brings a food item to share and that food and drinks are included with the meeting while you discuss your business goals and network together how you could help one another.
Just a thought! Maybe I am coming up with ideas to put my own group together, but I don’t know if I have the time for that! LOL… If anyone has a hint for me, simply reply! I would love to hear from you all.
Luckily, there are local networking events and groups that can help you find some clients and connections right there in your hometown. BUT, we have so much of an online world to rely on today, that there is an importance in what you can do with the social media networks, websites, and other online work you complete to promote your business.
So, I will be digging into some research to find some high-quality options that can help you build all of those connections online… but you’ll be able to make a successful business with the work you put into it!
