The best way to build a strong relationship is to be genuine and try to understand the other person’s perspective. Start the conversation by focusing on the other person’s interests. Listen actively by concentrating totally on what it is said, the body language and by asking powerful questions.

Here some tips I would like to share with you about effective networking for your business:

1-Define your target audience: It is very important to start with the end in mind.
1. Set a personal mission statement and a vision
2. Define your goals and objectives
3. Select networking groups based on your mission/goals
4. Use Online Social Networks such as Linkedin
5. Make a blog, or a newsletter with content focused on your prospects’ interests

2– Focus on the positive:
1. Recognize good chemistry instantly
2. Notice when there is no fit, and no sync
3. Look for commonalities and shared interests
4. Be aware of energy you project,
